A simple and fairly easy step in transitioning toward the ever-evolving landscape of healthy living, is to clean up your makeup bag. DON’T FREAK OUT! Ha! I am not about to tell you to throw everything out and replace all your beauty faves with purely organic, color pigment vials or anything like that. What I will recommend is this- take one piece of your beauty routine, one step at a time, and dive into 30 minutes or so of research into the ingredients list and manufacturing practices of said brand. You’d be surprised what kind of toxins and potentially irritating ingredients are in some of the most popular makeup brands!
The benefits of making a slow, but intentional switch to natural beauty products include healthier, overall skin health- due to nourishing and protective ingredients often found in natural beauty lines. So, let’s start with what covers most of your face: Foundation.
Now, trust me, I understand in full the struggle and journey that goes into finding the perfect foundation color. (I am currently blending two colors into a thirds combo as I transition to summer.) It goes beyond color even and for most of us, requires a certain texture, longevity and coverage to feel just perfect! What’s wonderful about switching to a natural, cleaner foundation right now, however, are the MANY MANY OPTIONS available to us, that were no where to be found just a decade ago.
With a generous variety of shades offered from drugstore brands like Burts Bees, this is an attainable switch for even the smallest budget!
