Like most people, I'm a sucker for convenience. If there’s a way that I can get all of my errands done as efficiently as possible without breaking any traffic laws, I’m going to be all for it. And that’s why Whole Foods can be so appealing. Sure, I can pick up groceries and maybe even get a bite to eat while I’m there. But I can also grab a few skincare items on my way out, and that’s why the store is especially helpful.

The Whole Foods’ Whole Body section is stocked with nontoxic, natural products that cover head-to-toe concerns, from inflammation and breakouts to hydration and smoothness. The array of covetable items on the shelves may even be surprising at first—after all, this is a place for organic tomatoes—but that’s the point.

As Maren Giuliano, the head of beauty and wellness at Whole Foods, told Byrdie, “Our goal is to carry the best natural skin care products on the market, and we’re always looking to elevate our standards,” she says. “We have strict standards for what we allow in every aisle of our store, but that’s especially true for our beauty department.”

Make the most of a trip down one of these aisles with the 13 Whole Foods skin care products we’d grab on an errand run—and you can make it even easier by picking them up online.
