Why We Love Waterless Beauty
By Michelle Nicholas, The Downtown Spa
Did you know water breeds bacteria? Look at your favorite beauty products on your shelf. What’s one of the top ingredients? Is it water? All beauty products with a water base are prone to bacteria growth, which harms your skin and health. It also renders your products useless prematurely.
Did you know your favourite products may contain only 25 percent of the ‘actual product’ and the rest is water? That’s not money well spent, right? It also doesn’t provide your skin with any benefits.
As life slows down thanks to the pandemic, it’s a great time to look at your beauty products and see how you can improve your routine. At The Downtown Spa, we love finding new products that help not only our skin but our clients’ skin too.
Convenience is an Excuse
We’re all guilty of using products for convenience. Maybe you buy name brand products because it’s what you know or because of their ‘multi-uses’ to save time. You aren’t alone, but you also aren’t doing your skin any favors. Many of the name brand products contain harmful chemicals and additives that do more damage than good for your skin to counteract the bacteria risk.
Any product that uses water also uses chemicals – they have to if they want any shelf life in their products. Are you willing to give up the effectiveness of a product for the convenience?
At The Downtown Spa, we love waterless beauty products that eliminate harmful chemicals and additives. They are just as convenient as the name brand products and yet provide our bodies with many more benefits.
We continually search for the best waterless products available today, and one of our favorites is Bee Savvy Honey products.
Exfoliate Your Skin
When you exfoliate your skin, you remove the dead skin cells on your face or body. That’s great, right? But, if you use products with harmful chemicals and additives, what happens to your skin? What are you feeding it? You defeat the purpose of exfoliating when you use harmful products because when you exfoliate, you give them an open window into your body.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ – it’s up to you to take care of it. The Bee Savvy Honey Body Scrub is one of our favorites. It has all-natural ingredients including organic sugar, salt, avocado oil, and essential oils. It’s the perfect recipe to gently remove the dead skin cells while providing your skin with extra hydration. It leaves your skin with a healthy glow without the risk of harmful additives and preservatives.
Protect Your Lips
How often do you think of your lips? Do you care for them as often as you care for your facial and body skin? They are just as important as and even more delicate than the rest of your skin.
Using quality beeswax lip balm keeps your lips healthy, moist, and looking beautiful. Gone are the days of such chapped lips in the winter that you can’t wear lipstick or the days of reapplying lip balm repeatedly throughout the day only to feel chapped and uncomfortable.
The Bee Savvy Lip Balm contains only four ingredients, and beeswax is the first. It smells good, feels great, and makes your lips look amazing even on the coldest winter or hottest summer days.
Rejuvenate your Skin
Does your skin feel damaged? Do you suffer from eczema, excessively dry skin, stretch marks, or scars? You need a body balm that protects your skin rather than adding chemicals and additives to it that only worsen the issue.
The Bee Savvy Body Balms not only feel great, but they leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. With no preservatives, you give your skin everything it needs to heal from the inside out. Your body doesn’t have to deal with the side effects of chemicals and additives – it gets everything it needs without the additives.
This waterless beauty product contains beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil as its base. It also includes pure essential oils of various scents and uses, depending on the product you purchase. The essential oils add an incredible scent while providing the body balm with more powerful properties including soothing, relaxing, and repairing your skin and even your overall health.
Moisturize your Skin
Our skin needs moisturizing year-round. The cold winter months make skin dry and brittle and the hot summer months eat up our skin’s moisture. Using lotions with a water base only makes the problem worse. They provide a ‘Band-Aid’ approach by moisturizing your skin initially, but they leave your skin feeling drier than before.
Using a waterless lotion bar, you use your body’s temperature to release the right amount of lotion that your body needs. It easily glides onto your skin, releasing the beautiful smells of the essential oils used. Made with the nourishing properties of shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax, your body gets the moisturizing it needs without harmful chemicals.
Slow Down and Take Care of your Skin
Now is a great time to slow down and focus on your skin. Are you running low on your typical products? Use this time to try something new and see the difference waterless beauty products provide. You’ll likely find that you have to use less product and have longer-lasting results. It’s amazing what happens when you remove the chemicals from your products and give your body what it really needs.
Check out Bee Savvy’s products next time you’re at the spa. We love their incredible product line and their focus on health and environmentally conscious beauty products. Removing water from your beauty products makes an amazing difference in how your skin looks and feels. Many of their products have various scents, giving you even more beneficial uses from them, such as decreasing stress, improving your breathing, or just feeling good overall.
