Skincare with Purpose

July 25, 2018

By now, you probably know that I am passionate about taking care of my body from the inside out. It is so important to know that health is not achieved just by eating the right food and doing the right exercises. When we take care of our bodies in every way possible we, in turn, are healthier. This is especially true when it comes to skincare. I grew up using the traditional pharmacy products that most people use to care for their skin and never thought anything of it.

When I started learning about living a healthy lifestyle, I learned that not only did our food contain toxic ingredients, but so did our household products (i.e. lotions, soaps, spray cleaners, etc.). So I dove a little deeper to figure out what I could put on my skin to make it healthier. Because after all, our skin is our largest organ meaning it absorbs the most of what we put in or on it! Throughout the years, I have switched all of the products that I use to take care of my skin to safer, non-toxic versions.

I think it’s safe to say that we all have a bathroom routine, right? We take a shower in a certain order, get out, apply a certain type of lotion, a particular deodorant and the routine continues. I have created a regimen that works for me and makes me feel good. I love using products that make my skin feel super soft, so when I found this Nubian Heritage Collection, I instantly fell in love. Their products are made with a high concentration of certified organic shea butter and natural fragrance extracts that provide lasting hydration. I love it!  The moment I first applied the lotion, I knew it was for me. It’s creamy but not too thick, fragrant but not overpowering and most importantly leaves my skin feeling wonderful.

Nubian Heritage Collection says that they use “ancient remedies to provide modern wellness”, and I think they have successfully done just that. Nature’s best ingredients are blended into these bottles to create the most nourishing skincare around. Rich oils like coconut and hemp seed combined with shea butter and all kinds of vitamins make for some powerful skincare.

No matter the products you choose, I think it’s always important to know what is in the ingredient list and how it can benefit (or harm) you. You only have one body for your whole life, so why not take care of it to your best ability?!
