Tried & Tested: Healthy Option Goodies

Posted on

So I was supposed to categorize my tried & tested products based on their area of usage. Like shampoos & hair treatments together, while toners & moisturizers in another post. But since I’ve been loving Healthy Options, I’ve discovered a few products that are natural yet affordable enough to use everyday.

T.N. Dickson’s Original Witch Hazel Astringent

What I like about this astringent is that it doesn’t sting on your skin because it’s alcohol-free so it’ll not dry your skin. Plus it temporarily relieves skin irritations due to minor cuts, scrapes and insect bites. Also useful to calm, cool and cleanse your face and body.

 Then I discovered Dickson’s Pore Perfecting Toner. I’ve been on the look out for a good toner that’s cheap yet effective. According to a make up artist I know, choosing the right toner is essential in keeping the PH level of your skin (particularly your face) balanced. So if you’re not so sure as to what kind of toner to get, better start with what’s natural. Since I have a dry skin, this pore perfecting toner gives enough “life” on my dull skin.

My next find have been my favorite ever since I’ve discovered it. My issue with my hair started when I was pregnant, I was losing a lot of hair and all the shine & life was sucked right out of it so again, natural is the way to go. My doctor once told me that when buying for any product, the less color the better, meaning it has less chemicals & is close to being pure & natural. So clear is in.

 Nature’s Gate Biotin shampoo. After a month of using this product I have noticed how slowly my baby hair seemed to grow. Seriously, although my hair fall didn’t stop immediately it has indeed lessened.

With the heat we’re experiencing here in Manila, flaky and irritated scalp can happen. When this particular problem occur, there’s only one solution: Tea Tree it! Tea Tree has proven effected for “drying” pimples and other superficial skin problems. I love how it really works especially on how soothing it feels once lathered on the scalp.

I have other interesting finds from Healthy Options but I think a separate post is appropriate for that!
