The Beauty of Mother Nature--All Up On Your Skin

If Santa duties trumped current events on December 25th, you may have missed the New York Times' fabulous piece on produce-inspired beauty product. Apparently, the latest miracle ingredient in cosmetics doesn't come from some far-flung jungle but from the supermarket: carrots, apples, spinach, tomatoes and other fruits and veggies have all been reinvented as key players in the industry's new skin-care lines. SheFinds thoroughly approves of this idea–because isn't it comforting to really know what you're putting on your body? And isn't it just so darn green to use the Earth's bounty for all it's worth? Here are some of our favorite natural-products suggestions:

Yes To Carrots Face and Eye Make-Up Remover ($9.99). This gentle cleanser combines Vitamin-C-rich carrots with Dead Sea mud to effectively remove make-up and infuse skin with all kinds of mineral goodness. The company also makes shampoo, face cream, and body lotions–all natural, all cruelty-free.

 

TooFaced Too Faced Lip Injection ($18.50). Chilli pepper is another ingredient enjoying a new-found non-culinary fame, according to the Times. When applied to skin, it increases circulation to the area, dilating blood vessles and causing plumpness. Rumor has it that celebs are loving this secret technique for creating killer pouts.

Brandt Apples aren't just for slicing up and smothering in peanut butter anymore. Now the extract of this classic fruit is a key ingredient in gentle make-up removers like Dr. Brandt Lineless Foaming Cleanser ($40). According to a scientist reporting to the Times, apple essence “helps soften the skin, brighten the skin and even out discoloration.” Which is good news for everyone here in the Big Apple–and other major cities–where pollutants in the air can do a real number on skin.
