Editorial Intern, Casie Leigh Lukes, on washing her face with coconut oil and making natural bug repellant.
A hot bubble bath is a beautiful thing, but we recommend that you be very picky about the suds you choose. A long soak gives your open pores plenty of time to absorb what’s in the water, and bubble baths have among the worst profiles of personal-care products for hazardous, skin-irritating ingredients. That sad fact makes us all the happier to find superior bubbles from a company committed to clean ingredients. Deep Steep makes all its products without chemical preservatives, synthetic fragrances or detergents, and uses essential-oil blends to keep its products from separating or growing bacteria. With aloe juice and vitamin E to moisturize, and scents like lavender chamomile, rosemary mint and grapefruit bergamot, here’s a soak you can really enjoy.
