Have you ever wondered what ingredients are in the day to day items that you put on your skin? There are people who never even consider the ingredients that are in their skin products, let alone their makeup. In many countries, ingredients and chemicals used in products are not regulated or restricted. But people still assume that what is sold in stores is safe.
Did you know that everything you put on your skin, your body absorbs? It absorbs into your bloodstream and organs. EW! EW! EW!
You might be standing in your bathroom now checking the ingredients of your skincare products and makeup. Here are some things you NEVER want on your skin.
Lead: Many types of lipstick can have traces of lead.
Mercury & Coal Tar: Mascara can hold both of these elements. Coal tar is a carcinogen.
Talc: Can Cause lung and breathing issues
Bismuth Oxychloride: Heavy metal, which is ok for music but not in our makeup!
