Is your morning routine making you sick? The average woman applies between six to twelve cosmetic items per day and some of these will include toxic chemicals that could impact your health. And, we wonder why cancer, infertility, allergies, and other health issues are on the rise. Never mind what these toxic chemicals are doing to our environment too. 

According to Healthline Canada

Unlike certain foods and drugs, personal care products aren’t required to announce the harmful byproducts and carcinogens they may contain.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may prohibit certain ingredientsTrusted Source 

The only way to know for sure if there are harmful ingredients in your makeup or skincare products is to read the labels. Here are the top 10 ingredients to avoid in makeup and skincare…

  • Parabens
  • Artificial fragrances
  • Sulfates…SLS/SLES
  • Toluene
  • Phthalate
  • Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)
  • Formaldehyde
  • Oxybenzone
  • Diethanolamine
  • Triclosan

Studies have shown that the above harmful ingredients are used in various capacities as in preservatives, foaming agents, solvents, and thickeners, etc. If these ingredients cause health issues why do we use them? We see the commercials for our daily products of cleansing, beautifying, and glamorous benefits cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance, but where are the health warnings? We should be able to make healthier choices.

Does “Natural” mean safer, not necessarily! It’s always a good idea to look for makeup that is mineral-based, and skincare that is fragrance-free or made from natural oils.

We need to educate ourselves to reduce the chemical exposures in our life. Don’t despair…there are some simple steps to create a better, non-toxic world and I can show you how.
