Wondering what to buy at the Whole Foods Beauty Week sale? Look no further…
From March 21 to 27 is a little-known holiday called Whole Foods Beauty Week, which means that all of the grocery chain’s natural skin care products are 25 percent off. Wondering what to buy while the sale is on? We asked some of Philadelphia’s beauty and natural-wellness pros for their fave products in the Whole Foods beauty aisle to get you started.
“Acure has so many hits, but this one is my favorite. It’s amazing at reducing inflammation and redness in the skin, and is so budget-friendly. I use it after toner, and apply an extra layer of facial oil on top because it’s so light.” — Jolene Hart, health coach and author of Eat Pretty Every Day
“Aside from its super-cute, vintage-apothecary-like packaging and stellar price-point, it’s also a great medicine-cabinet staple for anyone suffering with Acne. Witch Hazel is a topical antiseptic and destroys the bacteria on the skin’s surface. For those prone to break-outs, Witch Hazel is an extra-step to help insure clear skin. You wipe down your face with a cotton-ball soaked with Witch Hazel, and then wash your face and proceed as usual. (This is an extra beneficial product for those who cannot resist the temptation of at-home extractions. A quick pat of Witch Hazel helps make sure the lesion is sterilized.)” — Becky Fenlin, About Face Skin Care
“Brown sugar is my favorite. If you’ve never exfoliated your lips, you must try! The thing I love about this product is that you don’t have to make it into a drawn-out beauty routine. You simply scrub on and lick the sugar off once you’ve moisturized and rubbed off any dry flakey skin. I’m a serial lip biter so lips always need a little extra TLC, especially in the winter! This product is made with nothing but the best hydrating oils.” — Dr. Tara Nayak, naturopathic medicine
“I always recommend these body oils to clients who are curious about switching from using a body lotion or cream. They’re budget-friendly and made with high-quality, biodynamic ingredients. Try the Pampering (rose) or the Relaxing (lavender) oils.” — Jolene Hart, health coach and author of Eat Pretty Every Day
“I buy this lotion two 32-ounce pump bottles at a time and keep one in my kitchen and the other in my bathroom! Citrus mint is my favorite scent as its sweet smell is uplifting and rejuvenating. I slather my son’s face with this on his way out the door to school every morning, dab a bit on my hands after washing, and use right out of the shower. This is the perfect summer lotion because it rubs right into the skin without feeling heavy, greasy, or hot.” — Dr. Tara Nayak, naturopathic medicine
“This sunscreen is one of my beach bag essentials. It feels wonderful on your skin (so nourishing with seabuckthorn extract), protects evenly, and I never burn while wearing it. It’s so clean and simple that my toddler uses it too.” — Jolene Hart, health coach and author of Eat Pretty Every Day
