My best friend has decided to become vegan. Along with advocating animal rights, throwing away her leather products, she has adopted a new obsession for health: healthy products, organic products and, of course, products that have not been tested on animals.
Her newfound obsession got me thinking about what ways can beauty products actually be healthy? Just think of the pounds of makeup we women wear and which eventually take a toll on our skin; and what about plastic surgery and Botox? Those can’t be good for us! For men, too, unhealthy products or habits may be used for beauty purposes, such as, for example, the use of steroids to build up muscles.
So these thoughts had me searching this week for a healthy beauty product. Often, when I think of health, I think of nutrition. I’m sure some of you have heard the phrase “you are what you eat”. I guess the people at Kusmi have heard this too. They have developed the BB Detox tea as part of their wellness line. And what better way to enhance your beauty than by consuming healthy products.
I tried Kusmi’s BB Detox tea in green tea, mate, and grapefruit flavor. I tried it both hot and as an ice tea. It’s delicious. The tea is a combination of green tea and rooibos, a bit of grapefruit, and mate. Mate has a lot of caffeine so it’s not good to drink more than one or two cups a day. On the plus side, it can easily replace your morning coffee. Mate has been used in South America for centuries. It contains antioxidants, amino acids, and minerals. Green tea is also known to contain antioxidants which protect skin cells and keep them healthy. The combination of ingredients here is supposed to be effective in eliminating the body’s excess fluids and toxins and improving your skin’s appearance. The removal of toxins can help your skin assume a much healthier appearance. The tea comes in chick yellow packaging and you can choose from a small or large metal tin or a box of tea bags.
The very refreshing flavor of this tea is wonderful for daily consumption. I have yet to try their other tea on the detox line – lemongrass, green tea, and mate. I hear this one is very tasty as well. So if you’re already looking after your health and would like your skin to have that healthy glow, why not leave those heavy concealers on the shelves and indulge yourself with a more natural, healthy, and yummy beauty solution?
