In honor of breast cancer awareness month, I decided to share my top non toxic picks from the drugstore beauty department. Drug stores are known for having affordable cosmetics, but not so much the natural kind. I had to really search my local CVS to find these! They are not next to the regular crap which was odd to me.
Why should you use natural skin care products?
Our skin absorbs most of what we put on it so when you place parabens, fragrance, phthalates and other crap on it, that shit goes into your blood stream. There have been studies that suggest these chemicals can potentially cause cancer, disrupt your hormones and have a very negative impact on your overall well being once they get inside. It’s easy to think only in the present when you are young, but hitting 30 last spring made me re-evaluate what I’m using on my face and body.
This weekend I threw out a bunch of products that I knew were toxic (which is hard for a self proclaimed cosmetics horder).
