5 Ways to Go Organic

Lately, there’s been a lot of general interest in going “green” or organic. People want to make
healthier choices—both for themselves and for the environment. If you’ve been contemplating
going organic but are unsure of how to go about it, here are some easy ways you can make the
switch today:

Switch up Your Skincare Routine
One of the easiest ways to go organic these days is by changing your beauty routine. The
cosmetics and beauty industry has become a lot more conscious about their products due to
more discerning consumers who are savvy about skincare ingredients and are careful about
what they put on their skin. Companies like Well Within Beauty are committed to offering only
high quality organic beauty products that is good for your skin.

Well Within Beauty offers a full range of organic skincare essentials including a 
natural makeup remover, gentle exfoliant and antioxidant moisturizer. Everything you’d need for a complete skincare and beauty routine is available. Make the switch to organic beauty products and you’ll soon notice your skin is in its healthiest condition yet.

Wear Organic
Skincare isn’t the only way chemicals can get onto your skin and potentially damage it. Even the
clothes you wear could contain leftover pesticides if they’re made from conventionally grown

Wearing clothing made from organic cotton is beneficial for both you and the environment. Add
to that the fact that they are usually made from better quality fabric and feature quality stitching,
and you’ve got a bunch of great reasons to make the switch to organic clothing.

Have a Green Garden
If you have a green thumb and enjoy gardening, you may have an entire arsenal of products to
help your plants and grass grow better and protect them from pests. Unfortunately, many of
these products are laden with toxic chemicals that could potentially harm you and your family’s

Switch to organic herbicides and weed killers, or simply create your own by mixing water and
rubbing alcohol (one tablespoon of alcohol to one quart of water) in a spray bottle.

Safely Get Rid of Bugs
During the warm summer months, you may notice a lot more pesky bugs and insects flying or
crawling around. Most are harmless, but some, like mosquitoes, can carry diseases that could
threaten your family’s health.

Instead of using popular chemical bug sprays like Raid, mix your own insecticide by combining
two cups of Borax with one cup of water and two cups of sugar in a jar. Place this in a bug
infested area where it will get rid of them more effectively than potentially dangerous sprays.

Double Check Labels

Lastly, when most people think of going organic, they think of food. You’ll see a lot of food in the
supermarket these days that make claims of being organic, but be vigilant and extra discerning
when it comes to verifying these claims. Only food that has a USDA-certified organic badge is
the real deal. Food that has this stamp of approval means that it is made of at least 95% organically produced ingredients, or raised on an organic diet without being fed antibiotics or growth hormones.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways you can make organic living an entire lifestyle. Your
choices aren’t limited to just the supermarket or the beauty aisle. Take the time to read articles
and check labels, and make smart, organic choices for your better overall health.
