detox your beauty routine

 

Did you know that beauty is one of the least regulated industries in the United States. Seriously! Less than 20% of cosmetics have been tested for safety. And it's been 81 years since Congress last voted to regulate them. 

Since the average woman begins playing with makeup around middle school, that's a lot of potential for toxic build up. It's time to take a look at the products you use every day and say...it's time to detox. 

cleanser

Love your suds? Did you know that most suds come from sodium lauryl sulfate, a known skin irritant that can be toxic when combined with other chemicals in your system. Swap out your traditional cleanser, for this NEW foaming facial soap from Honey Belle. It's super gentle and contains Tea Tree Essential Oil to show your skin some major love.

moisturizer

The parabéns, dioxane and SLSs found in many moisturizers can interfere with nervous and reproductive systems. Because moisturizer is something we often place on our skin right after leaving the shower, when our skin's pores are most open, we need to be to paying close attention to what's inside.

INDIE LEE SQUALANE FACIAL CREAM
An anti-aging asset that soothes, nurtures, and moisturizes skin thanks to olive-derived squalane oil and hyaluronic acid - which have been known to improve cellular function, skin texture (minimizes pores), tone (evens out complexion), and color (revives natural glow so that complexion is less ashen).

The result? Younger, healthier, and more radiant skin.

lip care

Anything you put on your mouth is ingested over time. Petrolatum, which binds most balms, is a derivative from the crude oil process and is linked to organ system toxicity. Petroleum Jelly, ring a bell? If you're watching what you eat, you should be paying close attention to what you're placing on your lips too.

INDIE LEE LIP TREAT
This antioxidant-rich conditioning balm not only soothes and protects, it keeps lips feeling smooth and supple.

deodorant

There's no such thing as a safe antiperspirant. Any product that prevents underarm sweat does so by blocking your endocrine system and locking toxins inside. Walk away from dangerous alumnimum based antiperspirants and look for one with charcoal that removes sweat and order without any scary side effects.

KAIA NATURALS THE TAKESUMI DETOX DEODORANT
Charcoal is so potent that one gram (the size of your fingernail) can absorb enough toxins to fill four tennis courts.
