INDIE LEE: All Natural Beauty

Indie Lee 
Eco Glamazine's Wonder Woman January 2012

For our Summer issue, when it comes to natural beauty, there is no other Wonder Woman more inspiring than Indie Lee. This confident & strong New York mum embraces natural living and believes that life truly is beautiful. She has this incredible glass-is-always-half-full way of approaching her life. She describes herself as a Lover of Life. It's our absolute honour to present this spotlight article & feature about Indie Lee - our January 2012 Wonder Woman. 


Indie Lee. Miss Independent. 
"Indie" is a shortform for independence or independent. "Lee" means sheltered from the storm... Both words perfectly describe Indie Lee. Her storm was surviving a brain tumour. Just 3 years ago her whole life turned upside down.... "November 4th 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour that changed my whole life....No one should ever have to say goodbye to their kids like that.  I'm grateful for the tumour, it changed my life for the better." 

Beauty is Energy. 
Indie explains what beauty means to her. "Beauty is an energy, it's created within. Being on a beach and just listening to the waves crash, that to me is beautiful and that natural rhythm nourishes me. That is an energy that you just can't bottle.... Life for me is beautiful. Every moment, every breath is beautiful."

One thing we know for sure this woman knows beauty! We adore her Natural Beauty Recipes. You can watch her helpful beauty how-to videos on YoutubeVimeo and Beautylish


Indie loves using the power of honey as a Natural Blemish Relief  for those annoying zits! 
Try this Beauty Recipe from Indie Lee for fixing those unwanted blemishes: 
1.Wash your face - preferably with an all-natural cleanser – and pat dry. 
2. Dab the Manuka honey onto the affected area 
3. Let the honey dry for up to twenty minutes or longer. Just remember, if you fall asleep with it on, your pillow will get sticky. 
4. Rinse with warm water. 
5. Put ice on the affected area for five minutes to help reduce swelling. You can use an ice pack, vodka bottle, frozen peas – whatever you find in your freezer.

We all love Summer but not those nasty insect bites - Ouch! To keep the bugs at bay while enjoying the great outdoors try Indie's all natural safe insect repellent; Lemon Eucalyptus Oil.  

From Geek to Gorgeous. 
After her brain tumor was removed this ex finance geek traded-up pushing papers for mixing beauty potions and began a quest to create her all natural beauty products. The result - her very own line of deluxe natural and safe beauty products called Indie Lee. 

"On Earth Day 2009, I was given another chance at life and a new perspective on beauty. I awoke from brain surgery to discover that a potentially fatal tumour had been successfully removed. Having learned that environmental toxins may have been the culprits, I began devoting myself to leading a healthier lifestyle. Using the finest, all natural ingredients, I created a luxurious line of beauty products. Remember what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it." 


Passionate about Natural Skin Care. 
Indie is changing the way we look at skin care one ingredient at a time. She believes in the power of mother nature and only includes the very best ingredients in her beauty products. Indie's favourite product is her amazing 100% natural Carrot French Clay Cleansing Bar. Toning essential oils and revitalising French Clay, cleanse and refresh your skin. "My carrot french clay soap changed my life - never have hormonal acne anymore."

For younger looking, glowing gorgeous skin try Indie Lee's natural skin care including balms, cleansers, soaps, moisturising oils, scrubs and hair care products. 
Being a devoted mother of 2, Indie created a line of natural and safe baby products, which include her My Angel Cleansing Bar, Baby Balm, Baby Powder and Belly balm for new mummies. 

If you can't get your hands on Indie's natural beauty products, don't worry - We found this great how-to video where Indie shows you step-by-step how to make her natural Vanilla Spread body creme.   

Green can be Glamorous. 
Indie Lee inspires us to live life with a new sense of appreciation and gratitude. "Sometimes in the moments of utter chaos true clarity can be achieved." 


We hope Indie Lee has inspired you to re-think your beauty routine to include more natural non-toxic beauty products. Indie says, "Together we will create change. Remember what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it."
