In the last year I have been very interested in all natural beauty… why you might ask? Well you see, our skin is our largest organ, what we put on it goes IN it. You’d be surprised by how many harmful chemicals are in your every day beauty products and personally I don’t want to increase my risk for health issues when there are so many great all natural products available!
Did you know a recent study found that women who used everyday beauty products that contain chemicals like parabens (a preservative used in cosmetics), benzophenones (used as UV filters), and bisphenol A were found to have abnormal amounts of the reproductive hormones oestrogen and progesterone? Too much progesterone has been linked to breast cancer and oestrogen can mess with your body’s fertility.

What’s amazing about Lemon Laine: They do ALL the work for you! They carry products that only have CLEAN ingredients but they still get the job done. They also carry wellness products such as supplements and superfoods because looking beautiful on the outside starts from the inside.
Oil Bar Experience
Not only does Lemon Laine sell all natural beauty products – they make them as well! I got to hit the oil bar and let me tell you it was a TREAT! You might be wondering what an oil bar is exactly (I had the same question).
Lemon Laine carries a variety of different seed, nut and plant oils that they customize to YOUR skins needs. So what’s amazing is that in most cases no two oils will be the same. The oil can be used in placement of a moisturizer OR you can mix it in to your current moisturizer. I know putting oil on your skin might be scary but oil actually FIGHTS oil, leaving your skin healthy, happy and breakout free! If you’re in Nashville or just visiting this is a MUST experience (plus it comes with a complimentary glass of wine)
To give you an idea of what our unique experience was like: I got a rejuvenating blend while my BFF Jenna got a clearing blend.
Some of the oils used…
Borage Oil: high in omegas and known to be a “skin soother”
Olive Oil: high in vitamin E, helps promote cell turnover
Safflower Oil: helps fight breakouts
Tangerine Oil: an antibacterial and skin brighter
Ylang Ylang: helps with elasticity and acts as a moisture barrier
Some Of My Favorites:

Sensitive skin? Try Pai’s skincare line – their rosehip oil serum is a MUST!

Combination/dry skin? Try Tata Harper – it’s the most expensive but it’s worth the $$$!
