When you begin to switch over to the green way of living it can be intimidating. There are so many choices to be made, so many toxins to avoid, and things get even crazier when you want to dig deep and see what a company truly practices. Green beauty is just one of the areas of natural living that can seem overwhelming.
Our skin absorbs everything that we slather on it. Did you know that? All that makeup doesn’t just stay on the surface like it appears! What we put on in the morning gets sucked into our body and those ingredients can greatly change our body! Thus the quest for green beauty. Well there are actually a lot of reasons to switch to green beauty products. Health is just one of them but don’t forget the environmental factors that come with using less toxins and less plastics.
So you decided you want to use green beauty products but where do you start? How do you know which brands are actually green and non-toxic? You can go digging and researching yourself to find great natural brands and I do encourage you to do that but…. there is an easy way to get started!
