The Gradual Path to Organic Life
Going green with your beauty routine does not have to be rushed. A lot of people become overwhelmed with everything they have to buy to start going organic. Like I have said before, it’s a process. You have to take it step by step. Prioritize what is most important to you and start there first.
[The first product you should change over is your deodorant because conventional deodorant is linked to breast cancer, Alzheimer's and hormone problems.]
Up until recently, I was still using eye shadow I bought at the discount store.
For the most part, you can either use up or throw out what you currently use.
In this case, I loved the color so much, I didn’t want to throw it out. Well, when I ran out, I went back to the store and was able to see the ingredients on the package. I was horrified. One of the top ingredients was talc, a substance I stay far away from.
Talc has been shown to cause cancer, especially in women as we use make-up and products containing talc more often than men.
So instead of walking away empty-handed, this discount store provided me with another option. Some mainstream makeup brands are starting to see the light and come out with all natural versions.
I was able to purchase Almay pure blends, a new line which is hypoallergenic and 98.2% natural. It contains fruit and flower extracts and no parabens (which mimic hormones in the body) or talc! They make eye shadows, blush, lip gloss, powder, and foundation. If you can’t find the time to get to the natural grocery to buy your cosmetics or wait for it to come in the mail, this is a great way to get what you need in a safe, eco-friendly product. By the way, I purchased the eyeshadow in ivory, a great every day color for $6.44!
