With loads of different makeup brands out there how do you know which ones to go with?!
When I made the decision to swap over to the natural outer beauty and cosmetics world years ago it was definitely an interesting and challenging ride!

Going Natural is all about trial and error, and finding what works for you.

I often get asked what I use, how do you look so young and fresh!
To be honest I don’t actually wear a lot of make up on a daily basis, a good bronzer and mascara is my daily mix.

I choose not to wear many products on my skin but when I do it is always of highest, purest most natural ingredients.

ASK YOURSELF THIS — How many products do you apply to your skin every day?

Count them… they say the average person uses a min 10 per day, and in return absorbing over 100+ chemicals straight into their blood stream.
These chemicals are found in her face wash, face lotion, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, deodorant, perfume, mascara, eye shadow, foundation…the list goes on.

Toxic load on the body can lead to so many bodily dysfunctions, hormonal, DNA damage, skin conditions, allergies and even cancer. Not only this most products are harmful to our environment and yes believe it or not our products are still being testing on animals, I know! I actually thought this was a thing of the past too!!!
More concerning is that companies are able to keep some chemicals as a secret. So we may not even know everything that is actually in our products!

Beauty and personal care products are a primary source of our chemical exposure.

Why did I go natural?
Why would you put it on your skin if you wouldn’t eat it? Same thing right! Well Almost.

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it absorbs up to 70% of the things you put on it!
Think about those nicotine patches, and how they work! Its absorbed through the skin!
Topically applied products go straight to your bloodstream, whereas ingested chemicals are filtered by the liver and kidneys.

What scares me a lot is that the beauty/make up industry is almost completely unregulated!?!?
That means they can add whatever they want to your little products.

Earths Purities – Natural Deodorant
This one was the priority to change!
The scary fact – Aluminium has been found in breast tissue. Also sweating is natural, believe it or not! Its one of the many amazing mechanisms the body has to keep us healthy. We need to perspire to release toxins. But your every day store bought deodorants are blocking the glands from doing this.
