What's your number one resolution for 2011? If you answered, "getting more action," you're not only honest, you've come to the right post. Perhaps you're green, single, and hoping to hook up with someone on the same page. Whether you're looking to spice up your current relationship or start something new and steamy, here's how start doing it (and doing it well).

Eco-Sex starts with your relationship to your own body. In order to seduce (and allow yourself to be seduced) it always helps to begin with feeling beautiful. The fastest way to get there? Embrace healthy self-care habits, instead of slathering a poisonous brew of conventional, chemical-laden products on your skin, your biggest organ. The vast majority of personal care items for sale at your local pharmacy are just plain bad for you. What's the point of getting gussied up when you're simultaneously killing yourself with toxins that cause cancer and disrupt your hormones? Join the ecosexual revolution and do it the only way you should -- the green way.

Commandment 1: Your Skin: Going Deeper and Deeper
1 of 10
Choose multi-use, natural oils like argan or coconut oil. A little goes a long way.If you're new to greening your routine, you can easily get caught up in greenwashing schemes. Avoid all that by going to only trusted brands. If you're unsure about anything already in your stash, you can check it out using the Environmental Working Group's truly awesome cosmetic safety database.

People complain about the expense of a lot of green personal care products, and it's a legitimate concern. Until supply and demand dictate that everything we buy is clean, green, non-toxic, and fair trade, the big companies will keep pushing the poison on us. But even if your budget is tight, you can be a lean, green, sexy machine. Start with the all-in-one theory of beauty -- find products that do more than one thing. So many fall prey to using every product in a conventional line: cleanser, toner, moisturizer, eye cream, etc.
