Every day millions of women open their cosmetic bags full of chemicals and earth enemy potions and lotions. Never fear, feel great, look great and help the environment with these tricks.
Did you know each woman uses an average of twelve beauty products on their skin each and every single day. These twelve products can contain hundreds of different ingredients creating a chemical cocktail that gets unwittingly slathered, powdered and puffed onto (and into) our bodies. Not necessarily something you’re thinking about at the crack of dawn, but over the years these chemicals can take a toll on your health and the environment.
The good news is you have more choices than ever when it comes to responsible and skin safe products. Since most of us don’t have time to become chemists, we need to learn practical ways to decipher labels. Yes, that means you need to become a label reader. The more unpronounceable, complex chemical names you see, the less chance you’re looking at a natural product.
You could also try to simply use less products. Ultimately, the less makeup, lotions and potions you put on your body do add to the body burden and the work our system has to do to cleanse our blood. Exercising and eating right can go a long way to adding that natural glow and beauty to skin, hair and nails. Drinking filtered water as much as you can also helps cleanse and detoxify your system. Every day we are bombarded with toxins in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the products we use and trust. Our best defense is to cleanse our body on a consistent basis.
