This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with AVEENO and Latina Bloggers Connect, however all opinions are sincere and are my own.
Growing up I always felt very close to the land, not just close to mi tierra but close to the earth. Guatemala is knows as the land of eternal spring, a rich country where everything is green and farmers still grow crops the same way their ancestors did 200 years ago. I grew up in a country where you still buy your fruits and vegetables at mercados instead of getting them at the supermarket and where those fruits and vegetables are always in season and never in your freezer, where food is made from scratch and where we recognize the power of natural ingredients not just for nutrition but also for health and to use in beauty products.
I firmly believe in natural beauty, in a beauty that comes from within as well as from without and that that has to do with what you put in your body. My grandmother always used natural beauty products, even creams she made herself her skin always looked radiant and healthy. I wish I had the time to make my own creams and beauty products but since eI can not I always trust the advice I got from my grandmother and look for beauty products that include the use of ingredients that are found in nature. That is why I am have always loved the AVEENO active naturals line of products.
Today I want to share AVEENO’s video “The Beauty of Nature,” a video narrative featuring Brand Ambassador Jennifer Aniston, which celebrates the abundance of ingredients found in nature with the vast potential to help enhance our natural beauty.
What I like the most about this video is that it highlights the journey of oats, the brands first ACTIVE NATURALS ingredient, from the farm to the AVEENO finished product. It also shares the historical uses of oats and it’s wonderful properties and scientific proof of how using this super natural ingredient will leave your skin looking healthy.
By tapping into ancient folklore as well as historical uses of oat and using science to identify its most useful properties for healthy skin, AVEENO® scientists have unlocked the hidden benefits within the small but mighty oat which is comprised of five vital elements that are also found in healthy skin: proteins, anti-oxidants, enzymes, vitamins and lipids.
