Taking care of the skin on my hands is very important to me because I adore the look of soft and supple hands. I also want to avoid rough, mottled and wrinkly hands for as long as possible. These are the rituals I do:
Overnight Intense Moisturization
Each night before going to bed I rub a dollop of organic, unrefined shea butter into my skin. It’s inexpensive (I purchase mine from Nature’s Shea Butter), deeply moisturizing and provides an intense treatment each night. I occasionally alternate with Henne Organics Lip Balm which can be used on dry skin.
This was my first time trying crystal-infused skincare and I quickly became interested in the properties and healing powers of crystals. Each type of crystal has its own vibration and energy and are widely known to have a variety of health benefits. It is possible that this energy interacts and exchanges energy with the human body’s magnetic field. I also love the spiritual aspect that they bring into my skincare routine.

The reason I switched to organic products was not because of how wonderful organic ingredients are but because I learned about the research behind the toxins we use in our everyday products. Each day the average woman uses 12 cosmetic products filled with 168 ingredients. The Food and Drug Administration are not required to review, test or approve any of these products nor do they have the ability to recall harmful products from the market. Considering personal care products are manufactured with 10,500 unique chemical ingredients and they’re not required to undergo any safety testing before being sold to the public, you can be sure that in your lifetime you have been exposed to your fair share of harmful toxins known to cause cancer, harm the reproductive system and disrupt the endocrine system.
Similar to the organic food revolution, organic beauty is now sweeping the world. Jessica Alba is slaying with her Honest Beauty company, Gywneth Paltrow with goop and you can now find organic beauty brands in Target and Sephora. Many of us are now choosing to lead healthier, more conscious lifestyles from what we eat to the clothes we wear to the beauty products we use. It’s shocking when you think about the thousands of chemicals lurking inside our everyday skincare and makeup products, many of which are linked to cancer, infertility and birth defects. We’re learning that it’s important to nourish our beauty through our skincare and makeup since the skin absorbs majority of what we put onto it. With more and more people deciding to place their health first when it comes to beauty, the organic beauty market has grown more sophisticated and accessible than ever before with an endless variety of choices.
Prim Botanicals is a beautiful line of all-natural and carefully researched blends that truly perform. The brand was started by Stefanie and Victoria, 2 childhood friends who decided to create a line that would put an end to adult bad hair days and breakouts.
