Linda Cousins-Newton, Storyteller, Shares Her Favorite Natural Beauty Products

We were recently reminded of the miracle that is coconut oil by this lovely Brooklyn resident. But that wasn't the only beauty secret of Linda Cousins-Newton. The storyteller also shared her favorite natural beauty products.

"I use the Dr. Bronner's liquid and solid soaps (usually the citrus or rose fragrances) as a body and facial wash," said Cousins-Newton. "When bathing rather than showering, I also add organic apple cider vinegar to the bath water and sometimes organic sea salt."

She follows up her cleansing routine by smoothing on African shea butter mixed with Aura Glow Coconut Musk oil combined with Black Rose coconut oil. These oils also add sheen and moisture to her locks along with Nature's Blessings Hair Pomade. For a pop of color, Cousins-Newton uses Physician's Formula Organic Wear Natural Origin Bronzer and Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Raisin. Simply gorgeous!
