Are toxic chemicals in makeup harming your health?

toxic ingredientsDo you realize that toxic ingredients in cosmetics can be harmful for your health?

If you are a woman and wear makeup everyday to work, parties and other social events, then it’s better to take a better look into what you are putting on your face on a daily basis, and make sure that your products do not contain harmful chemicals that are associated with certain health problems.

If you are planning to have a baby, then I highly recommend you choose safe products during pregnancy. Any toxic chemicals the mother uses on herself will also be transferred to the baby! A great article that you can read about toxic chemicals in personal care products is found HERE.

This video about toxic chemicals in cosmetics will be an eye opener for everybody. It was produced in conjunction with the campaign for safe cosmetics. This is the main reason why I chose to use natural and organic products. I believe everyone should make that same choice too.

    I stopped wearing lipstick when I found out what was in it. I never wore foundation so that doesn’t affect me, but the stuff I have found in makeup is atrocious at best. I only wear it twice a week, and I’m pretty much appalled by how these companies make their makeup. Read the labels, do your research, know your facts.
