As a busy mum, you want to know that beauty products you buy are going to get you results. On the other hand, you want to know that what you put on your skin and hair is natural and good for you. Well, you CAN have both – products that use natural ingredients and are effective. Here are 17 Bright Ideas for Natural Beauty Products that will help you look better, written for us by Brittany Bennett.
Body Glow – A body glow product is a great alternative to fake tan for when you want a fresh and healthy glow all year round. For starters, you don’t have to strip down in front of someone you don’t know and secondly you don’t have to worry about not getting it absolutely perfect and then having it dry in streaks! Body Glow acts as a BB cream for your body. Why not give RCK (Red Carpet Kolour) a try? It doesn’t rub off on your clothes once it dries. In fact, it was made in conjunction with celebrity MUA Joanna Schlip specifically for her clients who regularly walk the red carpet.
Affordable Products – Natural is the way of the future and you can get it at an affordable price. Look for products that feature hydrating ingredients such as jojoba, aloe vera, rose hip and almond oils. They are hydrating and nourish your skin. Puretopia has a great affordable range that features all of the above and new mum Jodi Anasta is the face of the range.
Radiant Skin – pepta-bright, from Indeed Lab, is a cream serum that helps to improve skin clarify while diminishing the appearance of dark spots and hyper-pigmentation, resulting in a more radiant skin tone. It is a combination of 7 powerful active ingredients that target 7 biological factors involved with the pigmentation process. It is formulated free from hydroquinone, kojic acid, mercury and parabens. This is a great way to get rid of the problem without having to pay for expensive procedures.
DIY Wax – Need a wax but don’t have time to make an appointment? Andrea is the must have DIY product to suit all of your waxing needs and you can do it all from the comfort of your own home.

Serums – A serum is a great way to boost hydration to your skin, particularly in the cooler months.

Mask It – For a hydration boost in winter, Indeed Labs have released a new hydraluron mask. These masks use breakthrough 3D timed release of hyaluronic acid to provide the perfect solution to dry, dehydrated skin. The mask’s 3D enzyme structure allows for prolonged retention of the hyaluronic acid’s moisturising effect, providing up to 24 hours of moisture that penetrates deeper into the skin. This effective enzyme also gives a slower timed release of hyaluronic acid, resulting in a longer lasting feeling of plumpness and hydration, which absorbs quickly into the skin.
Eye Moisturisers – A great way to keep the delicate skin around your eyes supply and wrinkle free for longer. The Puretopia Eye Rescue has a metal ball that cools the skin as it applies the product. It is also full of nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter.
