Natural Beauty...Ideas

So, I've thought long and hard recently about chemicals and my skin, and I've come to the conclusion that they are not for me. I want to slowly weed out any unnatural products and replace them with a 100% natural way of life.

I've already done this with my shampoo. I'm using Petal Fresh Organics. They are paraben, color, sulfate and phthalate free. I am using soap from the organic section of krogers, I don't remember what kind I bought, but it smells like peppermint and I like it.

I want to encompass "natural" into other areas of my life--I have some plans for organic make-up (I need to research this more, I don't really like the idea of putting mica on my face...) and I want to make a pledge to only buy handmade and thrifted clothes (this will take some dedication, I have a soft spot for...uh, things...). I also want to use cloth pads for my menstrual cycle and discontinue using store bought ones that contain chemicals and even sometimes plastics.

I also want start eating healthier.

This idea of mine is going to take a long time to implement. Does anyone use natural products in their daily life and can give me some good tips?

I desire to care better for my body, since it belongs to the Lord. I also want to be safe and make informed decisions about the things I put in and on myself. Any advice you can give would be wonderful!
