Let’s face facts: Livia Firth is a fantastic facilitator for earth-friendly fabrics, as per her recent appearance at the 2011 Golden Globes (that was fun to say, right?).

Between “Eco Age,” her green-friendly shop in London, and her recent hookup with Made, a company which manufactures accessories from local, recyclable materials, Livia has been non-stop on her campaign towards more organic living.

So it’s no surprise when we heard about her recent “Green Beauty Challenge.”

Livia claims that years of hanging around celebrities and the red carpet has given her what she describes as “Red Carpet Fever” (or Syndrome), which makes her feel she is entitled to the countless hours of beauty preparations before making a public appearance. All the primping and prepping takes at least two hours, and the result is Livia looking nearly a decade younger.

Sounds serious.

Unfortunately, the toxins in all that makeup can really wear on a person’s skin (and not in a good way), and Livia started to get concerned about her own well-being.

Fortunately, while in New York for the premiere of The King’s Speech, she ran into fellow health advocate and natural beauty expert / make-up artist, Jessa Blades, where she learned of some new, beneficial ways to treat your skin.

The major tips she received from Jessa, was to wash face morning and night with organic, raw coconut oil (which you can buy at your local health food store), then apply Argan Oil by Kahina Giving Beauty. She also lists a series of different organic make-ups to use— but if you don’t have the time to run around looking for each thing and just want to get your hands on a complete green make-up line, she recommends Jane Iredale.

I think Livia is an ideal representative for organic living, don’t you?  Firth for the Earth!
