The beauty in applying natural ingredients to your skin or ingesting into your body is when you are able to easily note what each of the ingredients are without the assistance of a Google lookup. There are products on the shelves that have scientific names for the ingredients used, but be careful because they may not all technically natural. Saige and Ivy products each have a short list of ingredients that you will know of because you may have used it before.
With illness and ultimately the death of my last grandparent, I started to review my own beauty regimens and the contents that I use on a daily basis. Switching toothpastes, deodorants, moisturizers and of course hair products. Some aren’t as easy to transition to (love my Colgate) but if my grandmother could use baking soda as a deodorant for decades, I figured I could look into a more healthy option for myself. I received Saige and Ivy in a self-care subscription box and was hooked.
I almost did not become an ambassador for Saige and Ivy. After seeing the Instagram post looking for representatives for the brand, I told myself that I clearly did not have the criteria that they were looking for. As a returning blogger, my social stats were not what the brand owner desired, but with the encouragement from my friends, I applied anyway.
Day two of the self-care challenge, go for a walk. Like my mother, in her pre-stroke days, walking was more than just an exercise, it was a mode of transportation.
