So glad we could escape the office and attend the Nourish beauty event yesterday. The products, which include body wash, body butter, and hand wash, don’t have any nasties — all the ingredients are 100 percent natural. Such a rare find! We chatted with actress Christine Taylor (of Dodgeball and Zoolander fame) about the products, and she mentioned that she didn’t start reading product labels till she had kids. And of course, her hubby Ben Stiller is pumped that she’s in love with a beauty brand whose items are under $10. This mom of two gave us the scoop on the products and how she keeps her skin glowing, plus she reveals her tricks for giving her kids an eco-conscience.
Why did you decide to be a brand ambassador for Nourish beauty products?
When I first heard about Nourish, I was really impressed by the purity, high quality, and the authenticity of the brand. They offer something really unique – all 100 percent USDA certified organic ingredients, beautiful scents and textures, and an amazing price point with everything under $10! I love that they can provide a wholesome, luxurious product at an affordable price. I’m really excited to be working with them because we share the same philosophy that what we put on our body is as important as what we put in our body.
Which Nourish product is your favorite, and what do you love most about it?
I must say I absolutely love the Nourish Organic Body Butter in Fresh Fig. It is my favorite scent! I have particularly dry skin so I apply it everywhere – to my legs, feet, cuticles, elbows – to just smooth everything over and add a bit of a glow. My secret is putting it on before I go to sleep so I wake up with soft, silky skin in the morning.
What are some of your secrets to keeping your skin looking fabulous?
Plenty of rest, water, and eating organic foods are my biggest tips for better skin, but I love a good exfoliator too. I use the Nourish Exfoliating Body Polish every few days. It is very gentle and does not leave an oily residue.
We love that the Nourish products are 100 percent organic. What are some other things you do to maintain a green lifestyle?
My family and I have made a conscious effort to make healthier choices, from eating organic foods and switching to chemical-free products, to conserving our natural resources. I can tell you that these choices have made a difference in my energy level, the clarity of my skin, the way my whole body feels…everything. It’s really proven to me the difference that high-quality, natural, and organic ingredients can make to your entire well- being.
Also, how are you encouraging your kids to protect the planet?
Kids learn by example so my husband and I really strive to practice what we preach. We are a big recycling family. We bring our own bags to the grocery store, and have special recycling bins for paper, plastic, and cans. What’s amazing to me is when our kids come home from school and teach us something new, or remind us of ways to help protect our planet. For example, composting is something they do at their school in the garden. They also remind us not to leave the water running when we brush our teeth. These may seem like tiny bits of advice, but every little bit helps….and it’s extra sweet coming from them.
