written by Nina Shantel, blog: RealDietHelp.com, published January 24, 2023

I have very sensitive skin, allergies and autoimmune conditions, so I’m very picky about what I put on my skin. Below is a list of my favorite clean cosmetics that meet my strict standards; they must be vegan, cruelty-free, never tested on animals, paraben-free, gluten-free, safe, and sustainable.

The cosmetics I use and recommend cannot contain over 2000 of the known toxic ingredients that are linked to cancer or hormone disruption, harmful to the environment, or irritating, such as aluminum, BHA, BHT, formaldehyde, toluene, EDTA, phthalates, triclosan and petro chemicals.

Best CLEAN cosmetics (vegan and cruelty free)

It’s much more difficult to find non-toxic, vegan, paraben-free cosmetics that perform well and don’t smell like glue. I have very sensitive skin, so if a product makes my skin break out, or irritates it or smells bad, it doesn’t make the list.

Below are my favorite vegan beauty products I use and love:

Best CLEAN wrinkle serum

Hydrating wrinkle oil. This gentle oil from Herbivore Botanicals Prism with AHA doesn’t irritate my finicky skin, gives it a little hydration and had faded some of the fine lines around my eyes.

I am excited to be part of a unique vegan bundle.

It drops Feb 3rd.

I will share the details then!

Best CLEAN gentle face cleanser

Caudalie’s Vinoclean almond cleansing milk is a gentle cleanser that removes makeup and excess oil, doesn’t dry out my skin, and makes my face and neck feel soft and clean.

Best priced CLEAN hand and body lotion

Hand & Body lotion. I love the smell of lemon in this gentle, creamy lotion that I apply all over my body. I even put this lotion on my face when my skin is dry. The scent is subtle and fades quickly, which I like. Avalon Organics, Refreshing Lemon Hand or Body Lotion

Best CLEAN lip balm

I prefer Dr. Bronner’s clean lip balms because they don’t dry out my lips when it wears off like Chapstick does. I also like to add this lip balm on top of dark, matte or dry lipsticks to create shine and add hydration. Rose is my favorite, but it’s usually out of stock. They all go on clear.

See the before and after I add lip balm to the short video below:

Best CLEAN creamy shimmer lipstick

Hydrating creamy lipstick. These shimmer lipsticks from Ilia are my favorite because they glide on gently and leave my lips hydrated.

The color Runaway gives my lips just the right subtle rose-pink shade with a touch of shimmer for a more natural look, good for daytime. For evening outings, I would recommend a much darker shade.

Best CLEAN eye shadow pallets

BEST Gold shimmer eye shadow pallet. These eye shadows from ATHR Beauty have five different gold shimmers, a highlighter and a few different pretty brown shades in their Desert Sunset pallet. I use a solid matte eyeshadow on my lid and add one of the shimmers over that to get the shimmer to pop.

BEST CLEAN neutral Eye Shadow pallet for everyone

BEST clean warm eyeshadow pallet: These warm eyeshadows from Ilia will compliment all skin tints. The eyeshadows are neutral enough to wear in the daytime and you can create a bolder look by brushing on more of the Hunter brick or the elegant Lineup brown shades.

The set includes six shades for less than $10 per eyeshadow. The shades include a shimmer champagne highlighter, the perfect matte nude for the lid or crease, shimmery peachy-gold, and matte light, medium and dark browns.

You can’t go wrong with this pallet; it’s perfect for the beginner makeup artist and for the person who doesn’t want to look “made-up.”

BEST Bold & Beautiful Eye Shadow pallet. This fun eye shadow pallet called “Party in the Nude” from PYT beauty is so versatile, I can go full glam or casual-natural.

I apply the turquoise eyeshadow on a brow brush over black eyeliner, and the end result is a light blue eye shadow/liner that stays put all day.

There are two pink matte eye shadows, one light and subtle, and other is bright and more noticeable. There are two pretty peach matte colors, two shades of matte brown and a highlighter. The glitter shades only add a touch of shimmer and don’t stay put. Use the glitter or shimmers from the ATHR Beauty pallet above if you want to add a lot of pigmented sparkle to your lids.

best CLEAN eye shadow primer

Eye shadow primer. This light and creamy eye shadow primer from Alima Pure dries clear and allows my eye shadow to stay on all day with minimal creasing. Some primers dry the lid or make my lids itch, but this primer doesn’t feel like I put anything on my lids, and it’s easy to remove. I apply the primer on my lids and let it dry completely. Then I apply a nude eye shadow from lid to brow, which makes the shadows stay on longer. I also apply the primer to my eyebrows because I like to fill in my brows with taupe eye shadow, which keeps the eyeshadow in place a lot longer.

Best CLEAN liquid eyeliner

Ilia is a clean cosmetics brand; their liquid liner is easy to apply, and doesn’t flake or smudge.

Easiest liquid eyeliner to apply

Ilia is not just a clean cosmetics brand, but their eyeliner is really easy to apply because the bristles aren’t flimsy and floppy like all the other liquid brushes I’ve tried. The applicator brush is firm with a little bit of give, that makes lining the lids much easier. Watch the video demonstration I did on my hand below:

Best CLEAN brow gel with color

I use Kosas brow gel in Taupe to keep my eyebrow hairs in place and to add a little bit of extra color to fill in any spaces. My hair is brown and I like that the Taupe shade is not too dark and not too blond. It has a mascara-like wand that’s easy to use and apply.

Give this a try if you have unruly or thin brows. This brow gel would probably work even better than an eye brow pencil for a more natural look if you have barely-there eyebrow hairs.

Best CLEAN no clump mascara

Ilia’s limitless mascara is one of the few mascaras I found that hardly clumps and it doesn’t flake. It has two different sizes of combs, one short that I use for my lower lashes, and on the other side are longer combs or bristles I use to coat the upper lashes. (It’s not vegan because it contains beeswax).

Best CLEAN volumizing mascara

If you’re looking for fuller, thicker lashes, try Ilia’s Fullest Volumizing mascara that clumps just the right amount to give lashes more width.

Best CLEAN makeup remover

Makeup remover. I use Evolve Micellar Water to remove all my makeup, from eye shadow, to blush, and even foundation. It’s gentle and has no scent. I like that I don’t have to bend over the sink and splash water on my face as with a cream facial cleanser to remove my make up. This micellar water doesn’t make my skin feel dry, tight or sticky like other cleansers.

I also dip a Q-tip into the product to clean up eye shadow on my outer corners to give my eyes an uplifted look.

Best CLEAN foundation stick

Foundation stick. I use W3LL foundation stick in shade 1C (I have very fair skin with blue undertones) to cover up any redness on my face or body. It’s also has a pretty subtle shimmer to it so I like to apply it down the middle of my nose and high on my cheeks for a highlighted look. I blot it with my fingers instead of with a makeup sponge so that it blends easily and flawlessly.

Best CLEAN medium coverage liquid foundation

While I rarely wear a full face of foundation, unless I’m doing a photo shoot, this medium coverage foundation with an SFP of 40 by ILIA is my favorite clean foundation so far. I primarily use this foundation on my chest and shoulders when I’m out in the sun, which prevents a sunburn and gives my skin a flawless appearance and dewy finish. I have fair skin and wear shade DIAZ ST7.

I put a few drops of foundation (it includes a dropper) onto my skin and disburse the product with a large fluffy brush to achieve a natural look. My complaints with this product is that it doesn’t include a pump, and it uses more foundation because it’s thicker than the sheer coverage foundations that I’m accustomed to.

Best CLEAN bug bite itch gel

Bug bites – stop the itch. I know this is a toner, but I use it to stop scratching and itching from mosquito bites and it works well. I pour a small amount of the GoPure hydrating toner gel onto a cotton ball and massage the product onto and around the bug bite area. I’m guessing the witch hazel and the aloe vera are what helps take the pain away. I apply two to three times a day for all-day relief.

Best CLEAN glitter nail polish

This is my favorite glitter nail polish from Ella+Mila called Pixie Dust. It lasts longer than solid colors that chip the following day. I sometimes wear just one coat for shimmer, or if I want a true glam look to showcase the glitter, I’ll apply three coats of nail polish. It has a built-in top coat so I don’t have to put on a base or clear nail polish.

Best muscle pain relief gel

Muscle pain gel. As a trainer, my clients are always asking what to do when they have sore muscles the day or two following an exercise session. This clear, odorless gel absorbs into the skin quickly and is very effective at helping sore muscle pain subside. Massage a generous amount of gel onto skin two to three times a day.

Best CLEAN cortisone cream

Itch and burning Hydrocortisone cream without toxic ingredients. This PROcure Hydrocortisone Cream with Calendula is gentle, odorless and gets rid of itching and redness. I used it on my chin when I had a painful, itching rash and the pain, redness and flaking went away quickly and never returned. I keep this product in my cabinet at all times in case I need it.

Best CLEAN lightweight hairspray

Healthy hair spray that doesn’t make me cough, sneeze and holds my hair is really difficult to find. This product from Josh Rosebrook provides a light hold. I spritz the product onto my dry hair and blow dry the spray until it’s completely dry. Sometimes I’ll apply two coats, blow drying between each application. If you are looking for a heavy hold product, this isn’t for you.

Best CLEAN hair conditioner

After years of searching for a gentle shampoo and conditioner, I found a brand I like: Bogavia. It doesn’t weight down my curls, has a pleasant gentle scent and washes out easily. My only complaint is that the stores run out of stock too frequently. Presently, I cannot find their shampoo anywhere, even from the Bogavia website.

Best CLEAN shower bar soap

Body bar soap. My skin is very sensitive. This gentle body soap has a subtle rose scent that doesn’t dry or irritate my skin. I use this in the shower.

Best CLEAN toothpaste

Dr. Bronner has some wonderfully clean products. I like the taste of the anise toothpaste, which tastes like licorice. The spearmint toothpaste is yummy too. These toothpastes gently clean teeth without foaming or whitening, or make me gag like traditional toothpastes do.

Best aluminum-free deodorant

I’ve been using Desert Essence’s Spring Fresh aluminum-free deodorant for years and love its clean scent. It is vegan, non GMO, doesn’t irritate my gentle skin, doesn’t stain my tops, and goes on smoothly. On hot days or after a workout, a second application is usually required, but that’s typical for a clean deodorant that does not contain aluminum. Another bonus is that this deodorant is affordable at around $6.00.

Desert Essence’s Spring Fresh aluminum-free deodorant doesn’t appear to be available on Amazon so I included the link to the company store below. You might also be able to find this product at natural grocery stores.

Here’s some other cosmetics that I love that aren’t available at Amazon, but are worth mentioning and purchasing:

Best CLEAN exfoliator

The Clean Circle Konjac Facial Sponge is a gentle exfoliator and it’s a great price at just $10. I wet the sponge a few times with water, squeeze out the excess water and press the sponge into my cheeks, forehead, neck and chin in a circular motion to get rid of dead skin cells. The soft sponge, when wet, feels like a wonderful massage. Make sure to wet it thoroughly and hang it with the attached string to air it out to prevent mildew. I love it so much, I bought more and gave one away as a gift.

To go to the company website, click the name of the product below:

Best CLEAN face sunscreen

I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily. I don’t like sunscreen that is thick, greasy, casts a white sheen, makes my skin shiny, or is difficult to spread; this sunscreen from Saint Jane doesn’t have any of those issues. Saint Jane’s SPF 30 sunscreen is lightweight and invisible. It feels like a light cream instead of a sunscreen, and dries clear.

My only complaints are the high cost, that it’s a small bottle and the nozzle that the product comes out of is so narrow, it takes longer to get enough product out of the bottle. It’s expensive at $38 for 1.7 fluid ounces, but if you just use it on your face, like I do, it’s worth the extra money.

best CLEAN color corrector

I finally found a clean product that will cover up blemishes and any pink spots on my skin for a flawless look by EXA. I am wearing the shade pink for fair skin in the color corrector category. It appears it’s out of stock so I included the link to another site that I purchase from that orders this fabulous product and will contact you when it’s back in stock.

Is coconut oil healthy to eat? (Does coconut oil help with weight loss?)

clear glass bowl with white liquid

My friend told me her husband started eating coconut oil because he heard what great benefits it has. She didn’t bother telling him what a bad idea that was because she said he doesn’t follow her advice. After two months of adding coconut oil to his diet, he complained of stomachaches and weight gain. She laughed and said, “It’s the coconut oil you’re eating, you idiot!”

Coconut oil is a high-calorie, processed saturated fat. It has more calories than butter and traditional oils. I used to to sauté vegetables in coconut oil because I love its tropical flavor, but stopped doing so because coconut oil increases cholesterol and weight gain. 

Coconut oil is not a miracle food; it has a lot of concentrated calories and is 100% fat, and just like any high-fat food, it can make you fat.

Fats do not result in weight loss, in fact, it can do the opposite, and result in weight gain. A lot of people decide to follow a ketogenic diet because they want to lose weight and don’t want to give up steak, pork chops and their favorite meats, but a  ketogenic diet is a high-saturated fat diet, which will make it harder to lose all the weight you need, and increases cholesterol and heart disease. The reason why people lose weight on ketogenic diets is because they are eating fewer calories from sugary foods.

The less oil and less fat you eat, the more bodyfat you will lose because fats contain more calories than protein or carbohydrates.

There is no oil that will result in weight loss. If you want to lose weight, avoid all oils.

Coconut oil, a MCT oil, is one of the worst, if not THE worst of the plant oils, because it is extremely high in saturated fat.

Coconut flakes are a healthier option compared to coconut oil, but it is still fattening because food containing coconut, like whole coconut milk and coconut flakes are high-fat foods.

What about the Mediterranean diet? There is no such thing as healthy oil. Even olive oil is unhealthy.

The reason health improves on a Mediterranean diet is because they eat less animal products and eat more vegetables. (see video above)

 

A diet that promotes fast bodyfat loss and improves health is a low-fat, low-protein diet, that is high in micronutrients from fruit, vegetables, beans and whole grains.

A LFPB (low-fat, plant-based) diet is THE optimal diet for the humans race.

Is olive oil healthy? (why are people avoiding oil?)

bowl being poured with yellow liquid

Oil is a processed food that is 100% fat. Dr. McDougall is correct that the “fat you eat is the fat you wear.” Oil is fattening and causes weight gain. People are fatter today because the rate of oil consumption has gone up.

One fatty meal impairs your blood vessel function for up to 8 hours after you eat it, which is why it’s called “sludge blood.”

Oils cause endothelial cell dysfunction and insulin resistance.

Red blood cells shape changes from smooth to having spikes to it, so it doesn’t flow as well.

Oils cause red blood cells to become deformed.

Olive oil is not a health food. When a study compares olive oil to pork fat or coconut oil, it’s a healthier fat, but it’s not a “healthy fat.”

Vegetable oil is healthier than butter, but there is no such thing as a healthy oil; all oils are unhealthy, and should be omitted from one’s diet.

Oils are one of the reasons why people are sick and overweight.

People with heart disease should especially avoid oils; the cause of heart disease is the accumulation of too much fat, so a low-fat diet, without oils, is best for heart health, and overall health.

Best plant-based, weight loss and disease reversal nutrition books

written by Nina Shantel, blog: RealDietHelp.com, published January 3, 2023

When I was in severe pain with erythromelalgia and Raynaud’s, I spent every free moment reading books and articles, and watching videos to figure out what could be the culprit of my pain, and how to heal my body. The following disease reversal, plant-based, vegan, how-to books are my favorites. I am now pain-free from applying the knowledge and following the advice from these brilliant individuals.

The BEST evidence-based, plant-based nutrition books on what causes disease

The China Study,” by Dr. T. Colin Campbell, is a book that every physician, nurse and person should read. It goes into detail about large studies and what they found: why certain parts of the world were sicker, and some were virtually disease-free.

Whole” is another fantastic book by Dr. T. Colin Campbell, that explains nutrition in detail, why it’s important to eat whole foods, not isolated nutrients, and how the pharmaceutical companies, medical establishments, and food industries shape government policies and conceal the cause of why people become ill.

Dr. Greger’s book titled, “How to Survive a Pandemic” should have been titled, “Foods that Cause Sudden Death and Chronic Disease: a Guide to Prevent the Next Pandemic.” This book discusses what goes on in slaughter houses and explains that there is no such thing as clean or healthy meat, chicken, eggs, fish, or pork because they all contain bacteria, viruses, hormones and endotoxins, which cannot be cooked off.

Animal foods are the causes of past pandemics: bats contain coronaviruses and chickens contain influenza, which get transmitted to other animals and humans.

To prevent future pandemics, people need to stop eating, transporting and handling animals. He provides specific information on what needs to be done to prevent future pandemics to avoid total destruction of our planet and the human species.

Dr. Greger provides sources and alerts the general public to what ranchers already know and hide: the way animals are held and killed for meat is dangerous, disgusting, filthy and harmful to the environment and humans; the only thing the meat and dairy industries care about is making as much money as possible.

The BEST plant-based book for diabetes with recipes

Mastering Diabetes” is an excellent book for diabetics. It explains, in easy to understand language, what causes insulin resistance and how to reverse it. If you are a Type-1 diabetic, don’t dismiss this book; it will show you how to add more carbohydrates to your diet, while reducing the amount of insulin you need to administer.

There are recipes included in the back of the book, but they didn’t look tasty to me, and I’ve tried some of their other recipes from their website, which I didn’t care for. Buy the book for the valuable information, not the recipes.

The BEST plant-based book for hormonal issues with recipes

Your Body in Balance,” by Dr. Neal Barnard, is a wonderfully written book. He writes the way he speaks, in simple terms that makes sense. He explains why hormones like testosterone goes to low, and estrogen gets elevated, and how to modify your diet to optimize health.

By changing one’s diet to the plant-based diet he proposes, his patients were able to get pregnant and no longer require surgery. I did not try any of recipes from this book because the recipes I’ve tried off his website were not to my liking (maybe I’m picky). Buy the book for the life-saving information.

The BEST plant-based book for disease reversal (for those who like pasta & bread)

The Starch Solution” by Dr. McDougall, is a book I recommend to people who love bread, white rice and pasta and don’t want to give up these tasty, starchy carbohydrates. Dr. McDougall’s starch-based diet has allowed people to lose tons of pounds, and reverse diseases (even Lupus and MS); some of the recipes taste good too.

The BEST vegan, low-fat, plant-based, oil-free cookbook

The High-Five Diet is a compilation of nutritional information I learned from the above books (and numerous others), my story of food allergies, getting Type-1 diabetes in my 30’s, and two additional autoimmune conditions: Raynaud’s and erythromelalgia years later. I share what worked and didn’t work for weight loss, pain, and insulin resistance. I also include my favorite plant-based, no sugar, vegan recipes. The majority of the recipes are low-fat, gluten-free and oil-free.

The BEST vegan, whole food, plant-based, dessert cookbook

Slimming Dairy-Free Smoothies and Desserts is a vegan cookbook with decadent treats made with whole foods, such as nuts and fruit. I do not use flour or sugar in any of the recipes. The majority of the recipes are gluten-free and oil-free.

The BEST plant-based gut health book with recipes

Fiber Fueled” is an excellent book for those with gut issues. Dr. Bulsiewicz, a gastroenterologist, explains why fiber is essential to gut health and disease reversal. There are recipes in the back of this book, but they are higher in fat (I eat a low-fat diet) so I’ve never tried them, buy they look delicious.

The BEST plant-based book with recipes for athletes

For anyone into fitness who doesn’t have a medical condition or is on medication,* who wants to learn how to gain strength, increase speed and agility, and reduce recovery time, “The Plant Based Athlete,” explains which foods to eat and which foods to avoid. It also provides many stories from an array of athletes, from body builders to Olympians, and what they eat to excel.

*If someone is on medication, then a stricter diet with less fat and the omission of processed foods like protein powders, is advised.

There are lots of recipes included The Plant-Based Athlete book, but I didn’t make any of those recipes, either because they didn’t appeal to me, they include dried fruit or processed foods like powders, or are high in fat (the book claims that athletes need a higher fat intake). Nevertheless, these recipes are superior in nutrition and taste compared to what most athletes currently eat, and are certain to boost blood flow, endurance, overall wellness and reduce the risk of disease.

Best book about the safety of GMO’s

Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey M. Smith explains that GMOs, genetically engineered foods, have been proven to be harmful to humans, animals, plants and the environment.

He explains which foods have been genetically modified, why GMO’s are allowed in the US and banned in Europe, how they can cause allergic reactions, have caused anaphylaxis & death, may provoke autoimmune attacks, could cause cancer, and why some people and scientists think GMO’s are safe and beneficial.

This book may be available at your library too.

Is soy good or bad for you? Does soy cause cancer?

tofu
Is soy good or bad for you? Doesn’t soy cause cancer? The theory that soy has estrogenic effects and increases estrogen levels and cancer risk has been debunked. The phytoestrogens in soy are actually protective against cancer, and those who eat more soy have a lowered risk of cancer.

Animal milk and animal products increase estrogen and contain estrogen, bacteria, hormones, cholesterol, viruses, and saturated animal fat.

Soy milk does not contain estrogen (or the gross items above), nor does it increase estrogen levels.

Soy milk is a healthy alternative to animal milks.

There are soy products that are harmful to health. The soy to avoid is GMO soy and isolated soy protein, which is found is protein powders, processed foods and bars.

The soy that is protective and healthy is organic tofu and organic edamame.

Soy is good for you and reduces cancer risk. You can eat soy every day, but it is a food that’s moderate in fat, so keep portion size to no more than six ounces per meal, which will contain about eight grams of healthy fats.

Pair tofu with vegetables for a nutritious, high-fiber, health-promoting meal.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (plant-based, no sugar, oil-free, no dates)

chocolate peanut butter cups in white paper cup

written by Nina Shantel, blog: RealDietHelp.com, published December 20, 2022

These chocolate peanut butter cups, also known as peanut butter cups, are not only sugar-free, vegan, oil-free, plant-based and don’t contain dates or dried fruit.

I also provide options to make these candies peanut-free.

My husband says they taste like frozen Reese’s peanut butter cups.

For the vegan chocolate filling ingredients:

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 3 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract, optional
  • 3 teaspoons tahini, almond butter, cashew butter or peanut butter (salt & oil-free)
  • 3 level tablespoons cocoa powder

For the toppings:

  • chopped walnuts, toasted peanut halves or toasted chopped pecans
  • peanut butter, almond butter, tahini or cashew butter (unsalted & oil-free)
  • toasted coconut flakes, unsweetened, sulfur-free (optional)

Directions: Peel and break bananas into 1-inch pieces and blend in a small food processor until it resembles pudding. Add remaining ingredients to the food processor, mixing for about 1-minute; the mixture should now look like melted chocolate.

Add 3 pieces of chopped walnuts, 3 toasted peanut halves or 4-5 pieces toasted pecans to each mold. Pour chocolate filling into silicon candy molds.

Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter, almond butter, tahini or cashew butter on top, in the middle (the more, the better it tastes). Drizzle more chocolate on top to cover (optional).

For the tahini filled chocolates, I drizzled about ½ teaspoon tahini on the top of each chocolate cup. Sprinkle with coconut flakes on top, if desired.

It takes 3-5 hours to freeze through.

Below are the silicone candy molds I use:
