1. Skin Deep by Environmental Working Group: make sure your beauty products are safe by scanning a product’s barcode or by browsing for a product by its name. Skin Deep rates products 1 – 10 depending on their ingredients and provides information about health hazard, UVA/UVB protection, sunscreen stability.
2. GoodGuide: you can browse for a product or you can scan a product’s barcode to find out how safe is a product you already use or want to purchase. Basically, it’s similar to Skin Deep. However, GoodGuide not only provides health hazard ratings, but also rates social and environmental impacts of a product.
3. Cruelty-Free by The Leaping Bunny: check for cruelty-free brands on the go! A simple and easy to use app.
4. Calm: meditation, relaxation and mindfulness app, which helps you stay focused and achieve more clarity, joy and peace of mind.
5. Sleep Time: this app with an integrated alarm analyzes your sleep cycles.
6. 100+ Smoothie Recipes: if you are a smoothie monster, you might have already done these recipes a thousand times. But it’s a great introduction for beginners!
7. Period Tracker Lite: a must-have app for every woman. Not only you can track your period, but also fertile days and ovulation. Additionally, you can note your moods and symptoms.
8. Daily Yoga: I would only recommend this app in case you don’t have a better source with you, like youtube or yoga DVD. However, there are times when you don’t have such a luxury and have to use what you have. Also, this app is great for beginners to get acquainted with yoga poses and simple yoga routines.
