Why Young Girls Should Choose ‘Organic Skin Care’

In the short time I’ve been in business offering organic skin care products, I’ve always assumed young girls would not be interested in organic products. I tended to believe women who were 20 years old and beyond would be more interested and more willing to purchase these products than those under 20.

Recently I have spoken with lots of lovely young ladies from 16 – 21 years of age who just love the idea of organic skin care and organic makeup products, but just can’t afford it. I totally understand that. I’ve been there, done that!

Young girls would rather spend their money on shoes, clothes and accessories… of course!

My message to these your ladies has been, although youth is on your side (lucky for them!), it is really important that you know the value of your skin on your overall health.

The fact is, there are just way too many toxic ingredients in mainstream skin care and makeup. So many harsh ingredients that mum’s like me are put off purchasing these products for their daughters. So to all the mum’s out there, we need to educate our young ladies on how dangerous these ingredients are… but not just that… these ingredients offer NOTHING to young OR mature skin.

Going organic provides young skin so many more benefits. A young girl’s skin is sensitive and may suffer from acne and oily skin. A good cleanser and daily moisturiser is ultimately all they need at this point in their life. Some might also benefit from a good body scrub and lip balm for dry lips (oh, how I remember those chapped lips in high school).

And as far as makeup goes, if you want to keep things really simple and inexpensive, then a really good foundation and concealer will help cover up any blemishes.

But really, the list goes on, I could get very excited and go off on a tangent with you and say you need a good mascara and a couple of lipstick shades, and what about an eye shadow? Oh, and your hair? You need a good organic conditioner and hair styling product. Plus don’t forget a quality natural body wash! I remember my mum used to make me use those yucky soap bars. Ewww!

Anyway, I’m sure by now the young girls reading this article get my point. Just please promise me you’ll invest in some good quality organic skin care and organic makeup products.

Great Christmas Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Your Teenage Girl

Not many things about raising teenage girls are easy; buying her Christmas presents is not an exception. You know that the chances of your little princess liking everything you’ve carefully picked out, wrapped, and put under the tree, are pretty slim. Stocking stuffers also present a little bit of a problem to parents who are eager to please. While small games, crayons, doll clothes and some candy were once suitable stocking stuffers your little girl needed, times have changes. Get your teenager gifts she’ll love with these stocking stuffer tips.

  • Gift Certificates/Cards: Women and shopping have a love affair that has extended through the ages. Money can often seem impersonal and your child may waste it on various items and never really benefit from your cash gift. Much like cash, gift cards and certificates offer freedom of choice to recipients, while at the same time giving you some control as to where the money will be spent. You can your daughter gift certificates to her favorite clothing store, a book or music store, or even the electronics store. Many stores offer gift cards that you can use in store or online, so if your daughter loves a store that’s not local to your area, consider buying her a gift card from there so she can shop online.
  • Makeup/Beauty Products: The teenage years are when many girls begin to become self aware. They are more likely to spend time on their hair, apply makeup, and want to indulge in perfumes, nail polish, and other rite of passage beauty products. Fill your daughter’s Christmas stocking with a light, fragrant body sprays; like lip gloss, eye shadow, and other makeup products that you approve of; as well as other beauty essentials like nail polish, hair spray, and moisturizers. While giving your teenager makeup can seem scary to you, purchasing it for her can help you lead her in the right direction as she matures. In other words, you can go ahead and by her some simple black mascara or she can go out and buy bright blue mascara on her own.
  • Fashion Accessories: For most teenage girls, growing up requires a wardrobe transformation. They leave behind the simple shirts and pants that got them this far in search of something a little more “fashionable.” Typically speaking most girls will want clothing and accessories that correspond to current trends. Look for popular accessories like jewelry, hats, leggings, and tights. Buying her jewelry doesn’t have to cost a fortune since the latest trend in bracelets and necklace are often inexpensive plastic pieces like bangle bracelets and beaded necklace. Leggings and tights are also big this year so buy her a few pairs in colors that will compliment her wardrobe.
  • Necessities: Your daughter needs little things that make life easier. Fill her stocking with things she can’t do without but doesn’t want to buy like a deodorant, a pack of breath freshening gum in a few different flavors, and fun pens, pencils, and other school supplies. These are little things that your daughter may not want but definitely could use.

How Much Do You Love Makeup?

Okay, if you are a girl that is probably the silliest question ever. From the time that girls are little they are always trying on every different type of cosmetic that they can. Whether you are a big fan of expensive makeup or of a cheaper variety it is safe to say that you would like to get free makeup. This is one great way that you can try even some of the racier colors or the brands that you would not normally give a second glance at the store.

Free makeup samples can also be a good way to have travel sizes of your makeup to carry in a small purse. Also what could be better than being able to share a brand new type of makeup with your friends? You could even save up a few of the samples and have a get together with your friends and try them all out at once and on each other. It can make for a fun and nostalgic night. We all remember having sleepovers with your friends and trying on makeup so why not do a grown up version of that?

Another great thing about free makeup samples is that you may be able to try a brand that you could not afford to otherwise. Lets face it some of the makeup that is available in the cosmetic section is really expensive. Buying a full size if you do not know you will like it can be kind of risky. You could have a lot of money into makeup that you do not like before you find some that you really do.

Free makeup products and samples can save you a lot of money and help you find new products this way. All you need to do is go online and sign up to receive a free sample of the product that you would like to try. Then here is where the hard part comes in, you have to be patient and sit back and wait for it to arrive in your mailbox. This can vary in time depending on the sample and the company that is sending it. By the time it arrives you will feel like it is your birthday. You will have a gift in your mailbox that you have been dying to try. If you have not ordered free makeup samples before what is stopping you?
