The Story of Cosmetics

Throughout my personal search for the best beauty products for myself, I've taken the time to educate myself on ingredients that are included in a lot of beauty products. I am able to read ingredient labels well enough to know if the products that I am interested in purchasing and trying on myself, and potentially recommending to friends and family, are not only effective with beneficial ingredients, but safe as well. A lot of ingredients that are used in cosmetics and other beauty products contain toxins that can be harmful to the body. They can increase the risk of cancer, cause reproduction problems in men and women, and even increase learning disablilities. Crazy, huh?? Whats even more crazy is that the FDA has no regulation of the ingredients that go into our products, and does not even assess how safe these ingredients are! Thats just insane!!

I found this video that really brings to light the dangers of using "just any" products on yourself and your loved ones. I consider myself to really be aware of what I'm using on my body, but this video really drove something home to me: the importance of using pure, safe, and beneficial products and informing the people that I love (and even who I dont know) about making better decisions about what they use as well. Its so important.

PLEASE watch this video. Maybe it will make you think the way it made me think about things. Maybe you will learn something you didnt know before. Maybe it will drive you to take action like I am. Message me with your thoughts, and if you are interested in learning how you can make a difference in your life and the life of others through choosing better products, please feel free to contact me.

Here's the link to the video: The Story of Cosmetics
