This week we are featuring the leading ladies of natural beauty and discussing beauty each day of the week. Learn from these pros how to get a safe, beautiful, and natural glow.
What is the connection between beauty and health? Many of us are unknowingly applying carcinogens and toxins to our bodies as part of our beauty routines. The lead in our lipstick, cancer causing ingredients in our bath products, and toxic chemicals in our nail polish may be leading to significant health risks.
Why isn't there more regulation? Well, the cosmetics industry is currently self-policing, and they're not doing much testing. Experience Life Magazine reports that "99 percent of the chemical ingredients in personal-care products sold in the United States have never been tested for safety, despite research showing long-term health risks associated with some of these compounds."
Choosing effective, safe, gentle products isn’t just for our glamour -- it's also for our health. Check in this week and learn from the natural beauty gurus how to get your glow, apply your SPF, and lather your locks. Today we ask the group about how they define beauty.
