What's in Your Make Up?

Have you ever read the ingredients on your make up labels? There's a lot going on in there. One ingredient you want to watch out for is parabens. What are they? They are synthetic preservatives and they can disrupt hormones. Not only that, but according to recent studies, may be linked to cancer development. Not a good thing. Luckily, many health and beauty brands are stepping up and offering paraben-free make up, moisturizers and hair care products. Be savvy when you shop. Read the labels before you buy!

  1. My favorite brands are Dr. Haushka, jurlique and nvey ECO. Im a little disappointed w/Dr H. though. Their face powder has talc in it, which widens your pores and is said to be structurally similar to asbestos. I investigated further into it, and I was told that their talc is safe. I still feel bothered by it though and wont use it. Everything else they have is wonderful :)
