According to the California Science Center, about 60% of the human body is made up of water. Just like we need water to prevent dehydration, our skins need to be taken care of the same way. Keeping the biggest organ of the human body moisturized, smooth, and looking healthy should be everyone’s priority and incorporate it into the everyday lifestyle. This is especially true, and quickly becomes an exigence, when the seasons begin to change. The days of extremely hot and exhaustingly sunny weather of summer will soon turn into days of cold and dry for the fall. When it comes to treating and nourishing your skin this fall, check out organic, natural skin treatments and creams from Melvita.
Melvita is an organic cosmetics company founded by a French biologist and beekeeper, Bernard Chevilliat, in 1983. Having a strong passion and belief in nature, specifically in bees and flowers, Chevilliat and Melvita promises to use ingredients from responsible organic farms. Not only is its formulas comprised of natural components, but everything from testing to their packaging are eco friendly.

Before all the hipsters started making things like organic stuff well, hip, there was the original, pioneering Burt’s Bees. Call me a sucker for the original but no matter what fun, flavorful chapsticks I get to try at the Audrey Magazine beauty closet, I still stick to my good ol’ Burt’s Bees. My good girlfriend only stocks up on their shampoo. You can call us “crazee for Burt’s Bees!”
In our Winter 2010-11 issue, I raved about ecoStore‘s All Purpose Citrus Cleaning Spray. Not only is it all natural (literally, five ingredients in its ingredient list, including palm and coconut based non-ionic and anionic surfactants), but my cleaning lady raves about its efficacy.
I’ve personally become a huge fan of ecoStore products, and the best part is, it won’t cost you a premium to switch to all-natural products (one of the hindrances for me to switching). ecoStore is committed to their mantra of “Truly Green, Truly Affordable, Truly Works!” I mean, the cleaning spray is just $5. That’s practically the same price as your grocery store standby, if not less expensive.
Now, for the month of December, ecoStore is offering special discounts so it’s a great time to stock up!
