We hope you are having a fabulous summer!
We love indulging ourselves here at Organic Bath. One of our favorite ways to give ourselves a quick treat is to get a manicure & pedicure. Who doesn’t love some fun nail color as a happy summer accessory?
Unfortunately, a visit to the nail salon can mean exposure to a lot of non-healthy ingredients! From the scrub used to slough away dry skin and the lotion/body butter used during the oh-so-indulgent foot massage to the actual nail polish itself, these products are all filled with ingredients we do not want our skin–or our nails–soaking up.
Here’s how we indulge in a pedi/mani without the toxic yuckiness!
2. We bring our own scrub! A lot of the nail salons in our area use scrubs made with microbeads: little plastic beads that do NOTHING for our skin and are horrible on the environment. No, thanks! We’ll take our pampering with a side of sugar scrub. RefreshMINT is our favorites for pedicures because it leaves the feet tingly and well-moisturized!
3. We bring our own body butters or body oils! We are loving Sweet Summer Body Butter. It’s our unscented mango body butter that leaves our skin soft and incredibly hydrated, without weighing us down.
Do you bring any of your favorite healthy beauty items to the nail salon?
