Mommy Greenest Approved: Vital Proteins Anti-Aging Marine Collagen

anti-aging marine collagen powderI never thought I would be the kind of woman who fought aging. I envisioned myself as aging gracefully, following in the footsteps of women like my aunt, who still practices daily yoga at 70. But then one day I looked in the mirror and the person staring back at me was…different. Her eyes had changed shape; her mouth tilted down. Even her ears had shifted, somehow. She looked like me, but…deflated. I know now that many of these changes happened because of collagen. As we age, the collagen levels in our skin drop, leaving it thinner and less elastic–what I’ve been experiencing, as I get older. But I discovered a way to boost those levels for anti-aging.

I was about nine, and our family friend—a gorgeous woman with ridiculously high cheekbones and poreless skin—showed me how to separate an egg, whip up the white with a fork, and apply it as a natural face mask. I idolized her, so I sat with that egg shriveling and prickling up my skin for what felt like an hour, until she remembered to tell me to wash it off. People, masks have come SUCH a long way since then. Case in point? The AMAZING new, individually packaged, 100% natural face masks from Earth Kiss. I’ve got 10 sets to give away! [Read more…]

Mommy Greenest Approved: LumiMist

bottle filled with water and bubbles against white backgroundI’m always up for being a guinea pig to green technology. I cleaned my carpets with alkaline water and drank hair spray to show how unnecessary toxic chemicals were in beauty products. So when LumiMist asked me to take a look at their device, which transforms ordinary tap water into a bacteria-fighting cleanser and toner, I was intrigued. Could something this simple really work?
