Everyone knows that when it comes to your makeup, it’s best to go natural, but when everyone is claiming their products are natural – who can you believe?
It’s time to take a more careful look at your beauty products — they could contain toxic chemicals that not only damage your skin, but could affect your health in the long-term.

From your makeup remover to your mascara, your makeup might contain this dangerous and toxic chemical. How dangerous is it? Parabens have been found in the tissue of breast tumors. It’s time to set down those awful, toxic makeup products and go natural!
To look for better alternatives, there are companies out there who are dedicated in avoiding parabens in their products. If you’re looking for a new moisturizer, then Burt’s Bees is the company for you. They have the best in night creams, facial towelettes, and hand cremes.

It’s common knowledge to include sunscreen in your regular makeup routine, but are you using the right sunscreen? There are sunscreens out there that do more harm than good for you and your skin. Certain sunscreens containing the chemical oxybenzone can cause hormone disruption and allergic reaction similar to eczema.
Now, if you’re getting worried that you can never step outside in the sun again, don’t worry. Next time you hit up the beach, avoid dangerous chemicals and try instead these other safe and organic products: Block Islands Organic – Natural Mineral Sunscreen, Alba Botanica Hawaiian – Aloe Vera Suncreen, and John Masters Organic – Natural Sunscreen.
Your favorite shades of lipsticks might contain lead in them and when you have elevated levels of lead, they have disastrous effects — like cancer, seizures, and miscarriages. It sounds pretty scary, but don’t fear! You can get those pretty pink lips back again by trying out some new and natural lip shades.
For those looking for a more subtle, simple lip shade, RMS Beauty’s Lip2Cheek has a soft pink rose color that’s sure to keep those lips hydrated and beautiful. If you’re looking for a more dramatic look for the nighttime, check out Vapour Beauty’s Siren Lipstick. Not only will it give you lips that pop, it has an organic formula and it never sticks or dries. Why even bother with other #basic lipsticks, when your lips could be ravishing?
If your hair feels flat and dry, sulfates might be your problem. A common chemical in a wide variety of shampoos, sulfates can strip your hair of essential oils and cause build up in your hair. Doesn’t sound great, does it? Well, get rid of that bottle of shampoo and unlock your hair’s full potential with some sulfate-free products!
With avocado and almonds, this argan oil shampoo might be just good enough to eat (but really, don’t eat it). It’s great for all hair types, even for those of you who dye your hair! If you’re feeling really crafty, try out this DIY shampoo recipe with coconut milk and essential oils.
There’s no reason to keep subjecting your body to harmful chemicals in the name of beauty. Make the switch to these all-natural products and enjoy the amazing benefits.
