The Coronavirus pandemic has made us aware of how little we are prepared for the major crises that loom over us in the future. The environment’s decline is a catastrophe in the making that we can help prevent or limit by the choices we make every day to help reduce waste, pollution and to live a greener lifestyle.
Celebrate Earth Day by opting for a lifestyle that protects your health and your environment.
Here are some suggestions:
Brooklyn’s Chloe + Chad offers an organic, cruelty-free, handmade face wash with oils of jojoba, coconut, camellia, and sunflower that leaves your skin super clean without damaging its moisture barrier. Founder Aisha Besson makes all products from scratch in her home and uses no preservatives. A premium grade geranium essential oil works effectively to fight wrinkles and most skin problems. Apply to face with water, enjoy a low sud lather but avoid eye contact. The unscented serum uses argan and jojoba oils with a smaller molecular size to penetrate the skin. Without fragrance, it retains moisture and gives protection against environmental pollution. Give nature a chance at https://www.chloeandchad.com/shop/copy-of-geranium-face-wash.
