Health and Beauty
The number one requirement I have when it comes to beauty products is that they're free from artificial fragrances and dyes. Although I love buying most things from Amazon, I prefer to buy my skin-care products from a trusted store or directly from the company's website. (I have a fear of counterfeit or outdated products.) But here are some wonderful item I've bought from Amazon that can help with your beauty routine.
Silk Pillowcase (Fishers Finery 100% pure silk)
A silk pillowcase is very gentle on your skin and hair. This one from Fishers Finery has the seal of approval from Good Housekeeping, but I love it for the following reasons:
1) Dye-free (yay!) Although it comes in numerous colors, the natural white is dye-free.
2) No zipper! If you're looking for the gentlest fabric to lay your head on, why risk landing on a hard zipper? I've bought other silk pillowcases (not realizing they have a zipper) and worry that I'm going to roll over onto it in my sleep. This pillowcase has the much-preferred envelope closing - so you can toss and turn and never hit metal!
Collagen Powder (Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides)
Collagen is vital for the health of your skin. Studies have shown that consuming a beverage containing a collagen supplement can significantly reduce the depth of wrinkles and increase skin hydration (now that's good news!) I like to add a scoop of this to my daily smoothie but I've found this also dissolves well into a glass of water.
This one from Vital Proteins comes from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows. Not only is this healthier for us, but it means a more humane life for the animals.
