Detoxify Your Makeup Bag

Skin does provide a barrier to the world, but not an impenetrable one.

Any product you put on your face or body will eventually be absorbed into your bloodstream.

If you look on the back of your cosmetics, you will most likely see some scary unfamiliar ingredients like:

Urea
Examples: diazolindyl urea, imidazolindyl urea
Common preservatives that release formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, that is irritating to the mucous membranes and known to cause contact dermatitis, headaches and internal bleeding.

Parabens
Examples: butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben
Common preservatives that are linked to breast cancer.

Petroleum By-Products
Examples: mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, dipropylene, glycol, butylene glycol, disodium EDTA, tetrasodium EDTA, trisodium EDTA, polybutene, triclosan, polyethylene
Petroleum by-products interfere with the skin’s natural functions, clog the pores, exacerbates acne, and are highly likely to be contaminated with carcinogens that are linked to breast cancer.

Makeup may seem harmless but in reality, it can be very damaging and be an underlying cause to many skin conditions and health concerns.

Try using natural, non-toxic makeup that will enhance your natural beauty but also care for your health.

Remember:

Health = Beauty
