Hey guys! I wanted to share a change in my lifestyle and it's for the better. It's my beauty routine. Now, I love makeup! It's my time during the day where I can get to be girly and it makes me feel better. Do any of you get that way? Even when you have those days where you feel gross but then you put on some makeup and it instantly gives you a little boost. It's the best! But let's be honest we love the getting home and taking it all off. Us women consume about FIVE POUNDS! YES, FIVE POUNDS! Of makeup every year on our skin. So all those chemicals that we are putting on our body go directly into our bloodstream within seconds. Our skin is the biggest organ and this is why I decided to switch from mainstream brands to indie beauty brands.
During the last few months of 2017 I started changing my beauty routine from conventional makeup and skincare brands to indie beauty or green beauty. When I started researching and looking into what my makeup and skincare care products had in them I was shocked. There are so many chemicals. In the US there are only 11 toxic ingredients banned from our skincare and beauty products. And in Europe, it's over 1300! There is such a lack of regulation in the US and it's up to you to make the change for your body. So make sure you are reading what your beauty products have in them
