Current cravings: Edible beauty products

Take a bite out of this: Many skin-care and beauty brands are going au naturel, swapping out any chemicals and parabens in their products for organic food-grade ingredients.

From body scrubs to lipsticks, here are the products making our mouths water.

a. Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Facial Towelettes, $10,

For the first step in our nightly skin-care routine we use these refreshing towelettes – ripe with vitamin C and lycopene antioxidants – to remove our makeup, lightly exfoliate and prepare our skin for cleanser. These 98 per cent natural wipes score double points for convenience: tuck these babies into your bag for a midday makeup refresher.

b. Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick, $28,

Snopes may have disproven the rumour that the average woman eats six pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, but considering how often we paint our pouts it can’t hurt to play it safe – especially when safe comes in over 25 colours, contains as many antioxidants as five glasses of wine and is formulated without sulfates, genetically modified organisms and synthetic dyes. Finally! A lipstick that’s as good for you as it looks.

c. Rocky Mountain Vanilla Coconut Organic Sugar Scrub, $23,

We took one whiff of this sugary sweet body scrub and felt ourselves transported to a white sandy beach, piña colada in hand. We suggest you snap back to reality before you take a sip! The scrub’s ingredient list may sound totally delicious – full of cane sugar, ginger and sunflower seed oil – but save this exfoliant for the shower and your smooth skin will thank you.

d. Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion, $16.50,

Remember the pomegranate craze of 2008? Pomegranate juice was so in vogue we’re thinking the economic crash may not have happened had we all bought stock in Pom Wonderful. Five years later, Weleda continues to hail the benefits of the antioxidant-rich superfruit, which helps firm the skin and prevent premature aging. Pomegranates are cool again – and this time, they’re backed by science. How can we resist?
