I may be a boymom but I have grown up as an aunty since I was 5 years old. Honest. And one of my closest and dearest nieces is becoming a teenager next week. As a mama on a mission to use clean products on my family, I wanted to discover what a teenage girl might want as she steps into the world of cosmetics.
I’m putting together a list of Clean Beauty for Teen/Tween Girls and this will be a 4 part series. I’ll also publish lists for clean skincare, bath/body, and hair care so be sure you’re getting my emails, so you don’t miss them! Sign up here.
My 12 year old niece isn’t a big makeup fan yet, but some of her friends are. I am not one to encourage heavy makeup at a young age, but I do recall as an early teen, wanting to experiment with makeup and follow some trends of the time. My list will consist of some basic products a makeup beginner could start with, all made with safer ingredients and EWG - verified. Let’s get into it!
We all know that staying active is important to wellness. Some of us love cardio in different forms, but I’m curious if, as a mama, you are including weight or resistance training in your regimen. In this article I want to highlight why weight training is so beneficial - especially for women over 30.
So wandering about the interwebs it seems there is a population of women who <GASP!!> believe that Eye Cream is simply just regular moisturizer placed in a smaller container! A little marketing trick to upsell you on something that’s just face cream! WHAAAAAA?!?!
Ok, I’ll admit. I’ve wondered the same thing too. So I figured I’d do a little research to discover if, in fact, a dedicated eye cream is truly different; and if us women of the side part and skinny jean generation actually need it. Read on to find out what I learned.
