Let’s keep talking about toxins
The average woman uses 12 beauty or skincare products a day that contain over 168 different toxic chemicals (Environmental Working Group)
The worst place to ingest chemicals is your skin, as it is your largest organ and it only takes 26 seconds to be absorbed
Side effects of cosmetic chemicals that can cause immediate reactions include: allergies, skin rash, headache, mood disturbance, brain fog or fatigue. Not to freak you out but when chemicals are continually compounded they CAN eventually lead to cancer, fertility issues, birth defects, neurological disturbances, and even auto-immune issues.
Don’t get my wrong I LOVE makeup as you can tell by my for real Makeup Arsenal (not pictures my airbrush machine and brush collection...) but if you’re going to be purchasing skincare and beauty products/cosmetics, why not make the extra effort to go as organic and natural as possible?! Ok fine, so I still use some “prestige brands” for stage/photo shoots but I’ve managed to switch mostly everything else over through brands I know and trust plus the Environmental Working Group has a great app that will tell you how toxic nearly every product you put on your skin is! I’ve also reviewed some of my favorites under the reviews section on this site (not all have been updated since learning all of this important info so bear with me as I update!)
