Episode 10 - Clean Beauty

Today's LightStyle tip is: 

Your biggest organ is your skin and whatever you put onto it is directly absorbed into your bloodstream!

This is important to know because what's absorbed into your bloodstream can effect you in good or bad ways. Harsh chemicals such as parabens, synthetic colors, fragrance, and all those other ingredients that are basically impossible to pronounce, (Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Toluene...you get the idea) are rampant in most products on the shelves today. 

If you thought the FDA does a mediocre job in regulating what goes into our food supply, you’ll be equally appalled, on its regulation of cosmetic and personal-care products. The same way you look at food labels, you should do the same for your beauty products. This industry is highly unregulated, and companies have cart blanche to use any ingredient without government review or approval. 

Many of these synthetic chemicals are skin irritants, skin penetrators, endocrine disrupters and are carcinogenic. 

So! To get you started on your clean beauty journey, in this video I share some of my favorite products and brands I've found along the way. Plus, an App called 'Think Dirty' I highly recommend you download and start using when on the hunt for clean beauty products.
