It’s especially important to switch to a nontoxic, natural/organic deodorant because the armpit area more readily absorbs than other parts of the body. Conventional deodorants contain ingredients linked to breast cancer, birth defects, and organ toxicity (aluminum, parabens, phthalates to name a few), and even before I learned about all this I always had this looming feeling that my deodorant was harmful and would often opt to not even use it and risk being stinky. Recently I’ve been using Green Tidings deodorant, which I even took with me on my trip to Malta, and have only good things to say about it. This is a completely nontoxic, organic, vegan deodorant made right in Southern California.

Because the circumference of these lip balms are so large, application is super quick and easy.

Korean women are famous for their perfect glowing skin, so naturally I needed to get this book that dishes their beauty secrets. The Little Book of Skincare: Korean Beauty Secrets for Healthy, Glowing Skin by Charlotte Cho is a light and easy read – I read the entire book in 1.5 hours but it felt more like 20 minutes. It opened my eyes to how skincare isn’t just a daily routine, but a way of life that’s deeply ingrained in Korean culture. If you’re curious about how Korean women take care of their skin, the type of skincare products they use, and the Korean beauty industry this book will give you an inside look. It brings the streets of Seoul and its skin-obsessed culture to life through vivid personal stories and answers everything you have been wondering or been puzzled by about Korean skincare.
