Green Your Beauty event

Monday, August 20, 2012

The other day I attended the Green Your Beauty event, hosted by Kimbelee of I Have a Degree in This & Nicole of Lipstick and Luxury. I'm not really a beauty blogger, so I learned a lot that day!
There were two speakers: Jolene of Beauty Is Wellness and Leena of MySkin. They discussed various foods that are amazing for your body, skin, and health. Stress busting foods include dark chocolate, oatmeal, chamomile tea, and oranges. Beige foods are ones to avoid. Jolene mentioned a great daily detox, which I definitely am going to try - warm lemon water. It's a great way to get rid of the toxins from your body of the food you ate the night before or what you ate earlier in the day. Another tip I learned was that any food with bioton, like swiss chard, is great for your hair!
 
Below are the amazing goodies: nail polish from Priti NYC, natural lip tint from Tarte, soy nail polish remover from Priti NYC, coconut lip balm from Zen Society, mineral blush from Zosimos Botanicals, some samples from Arbonne, and sugar scrub & shampoo bar from Senica.
P.S. Head over to the Project Runway blog -- I'll be guest posting my review/recap of last week's episode!

Oh Kimberlee is great. So nice that she put this event together. This post made me learn a bit more as well. I knew biotin was good for your hair, so now I guess I'll be picking up some swiss chard...and some warm lemon water as well.

Juneli said...

Seems like it was a lovely event! Being an Indian, I'm familiar with some of these natural beauty remedies, as you all know India is all about natural, holistic and ayurvedic beauty remedies, but I really do not implement them in daily life!! I used to drink a glass of warm water with lemon juice and a dash of honey in the morning, on empty stomach, but anything routine does not appeal to me, and I stopped after a few days. But it is actually very good for the body and your skin!
