On our most recent Mamavation TV show (watch it above!), we chatted with Sarah Johnson from RawSkinCeuticals and learned that we really do need to paying attention to the products we use. Sure, we hear this all the time about cleaning products or food, but many of us never think that makeup could be toxic to our skin and our bodies, too.
The bottom line of the conversation was this: You NEED to make changes. There are too many possible problems that could stem from the toxins we put on or in our bodies. Even if the products only have the teeniest bit of a chemical that could be harmful, those chemicals can build up over time.
Sarah shared the chemicals that we should most fear and avoid:
If nothing else, make sure you are reading your labels. Sarah asked us all to take time to do research and know what you’re putting on your skin. It’s understood that you may not make a full sweep change in your house, but you can at least educate yourself about what you’re choosing to purchase.
What have you learned about cosmetics and personal products that you didn’t realize before?
