As women, we are constantly worrying about the food we eat and the calories we burn. We do killer workouts, juice cleanses, and a plethora of diets. We are so worried about what we put into our body, but do we ever consider what we put on our body?
According to a survey by the Environmental Working Group, the average woman encounters 168 chemical ingredients in her beauty regimen every day. Many women are learning more about the potential problems associated with suspect chemicals and preservatives in beauty products and are beginning to straying from the local drugstore cosmetics and turning to natural topical merchandise.
You’re probably wondering what exactly “natural” means. Natural beauty products contain high levels of plant-based elements, leaving out harsh ingredients that cause dryness and more beauty problems later in life. With natural products, skin is left moisturized and radiant, leaving you looking 10 years younger.
