I recently read No More Dirty Looks and There’s Lead in Your Lipstick, two books about all the nasty chemicals that are commonly found in cosmetics and personal care products. They are what the documentary Earthlings was to me last year – eye opening and life changing. The kind of information once you’ve digested, it’s impossible to forget. Since reading these I’ve throw out or given away the majority of my products. Besides scaring myself thinking about all the chemicals and how they may have affected my health over the years, it also made me realize I just had too much stuff.
While I haven’t replaced everything, I am currently in the process of doing so which I will write about here. Join me!
