With all the amazing beauty products constantly being launched, it’s hard not to want to try them all. I mean, who wouldn’t want to cover their lips in shimmering glitter? But, just like we’re careful about what we eat, it's also important to be aware of what you put on your body. And this is exactly the message actress Olivia Wilde wants to help spread.
In a recent interview with W magazine, the mother of two opened up about her passion for organic beauty, which in part was sparked by her children. “We often don’t consider what we’re putting on our skin until we’re responsible for growing another human. Why can’t we be that thoughtful on behalf of just ourselves? I was struck by how serious the warnings were about the dangers of skincare while pregnant,” she said.
However, Wilde was truly floored when True Botanicals founders Hilary Peterson and Christina Mace-Turner shared their knowledge of the lack of regulation in the American beauty industry. “The EU has banned more than 1300 ingredients. The US has banned 20. It is beyond shocking. It’s sad,” the actress and social activist said.
Since then, Wilde has joined forces with True Botanicals, and has completely revamped her entire beauty routine to ensure that is free of any harmful chemicals.
Her new beauty stash is filled with organic products from True Botanicals, which the actress gushed over. “I am a sucker for the incredible luxury of the products themselves, and the experience of using them—my bathroom smells like a northern Cali woodsy spa,” she said.
And as for her healthy glow, Wilde owes it all to the Renew Pure Radiance Oil (in addition to her stellar genes of course). Wilde dubbed it as her “#1 favorite must have product.” “I use it twice a day. It is not greasy, it absorbs directly into the skin, it makes my makeup actually look better, and it outperformed La Mer in a blind clinical trial for anti ageing so count me in,” she said.
If it it’ll give me that heavenly glow, you can count me in too.
