Celebrities have to endure their faces and bodies slathered with makeup and products containing toxic chemicals before they hit the runway or during photo shoots. However, in their personal makeup arsenal, many models and actors have adopted a 100% natural skincare routine, as they are aware of the importance of healthy practices and clean products. Let’s face it, they are among the few people who are fortunate enough to have the resources to try almost anything and undoubtedly know what really works. So, when one of them admits her beauty secret, we have to be all ears.
The secret natural ingredient
Up until the last few years, almost everyone was obsessed with the miraculous Aloe Vera but the new hot natural healthy item that everyone needs is coconut oil. The use of coconut oil for its health benefits was not so widespread a few years ago but after it has made its way into a vast number of celebrities' beauty routines, natural beauty devotees could no longer ignore coconut oil. Angelina Jolie starts all her mornings with it, Mindy Kaling claims it is the secret behind her natural shiny hair, and Channing Tatum smeared it all over his wife's belly during her pregnancy. So, there has to be something to it.
Coconut oil for skincare
Coconut oil is an extremely versatile ingredient and a wondrous solution to a multitude of health and hair maladies but where it really shines is when used as a skincare ingredient. In fact, quite a few celebrities have pledged their allegiance to this wonderful ingredient.
Among them is Gisele Bundchen, the stunning Brazilian supermodel and quarterback Tom Brady’s wife. She is so devoted to coconut oil that she has her own organic skincare line that uses this oil as the main ingredient. She is also of the opinion that artificial products like sunscreen are “poison” to the skin and only sticks to products like Aloe Vera, coconut oil and sweet almond oil.
Jennifer Aniston also swears by coconut oil. In fact, she was spotted on quite a few occasions with a shopping cart that was almost full of coconut oil. She uses it not only as a metabolism booster and weight loss supplement but also as a skincare ingredient.
Emma stone told Vogue that she always keeps some coconut oil on hand to remove makeup. She prefers it to artificial makeup removers as she has very sensitive skin. Gwyneth Paltrow told E! that she uses this oil on her skin and for cooking every single day.
Choose the right product
When browsing through the list of ingredients on most of your products, especially moisturizers, you will certainly find that these ingredients are usually a mysterious assortment of frightening-sounding chemicals. Nevertheless, what we have learned from listening to celebrities is that it is better to avoid these chemicals and to go natural. What if I told you that you could get all the benefits of coconut oil mixed with the miraculous Aloe Vera and sweet almond oil? You might think that it is too good to be true, but Islands Harvest has come up with a second to none Face Moisturizer that indeed contains all these natural ingredients that have been combined in perfect proportions to guarantee that your skin looks flawless.
