"Pretty Poisons" vs. Holistic Beauty
One of the most popular sayings is “When you know better, you do better.” But how true is this? Some of us know better about plenty of things in life but have we changed? What pushes you to change? For some, it may be for family, some for health reasons, and some people just have that amazing willpower to re-adjust without thinking twice. Discipline is key.
When cold hard facts are presented its hard to ignore them and not want to shift your mindset or usual operations. While the thought of scrapping everything as you know it to try something new is a daunting task, it’s totally necessary for your health long term. Purging your toxic beauty and body products is a great start.
We know that “clean eating” is all the rage but have you gotten on the “clean beauty” train? If not ALL ABOARD! Today we’ll discuss the difference between synthetic and holistic beauty products and also provide you with a list of great alternatives for your beauty staples!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Synthetic (Dirty): This is basically man-made chemicals. While some synthetic ingredients may be DERIVED from a natural source, it’s definitely not the real thing. They also often come with a hefty long-term tax on your face, body, and health. Don't be fooled by these "Pretty Poisons". They carry a myriad of side-effects.
Holistic (Clean): The best there is! These products are sourced straight from the Earth, you can usually pronounce every or at least, most ingredients. This is the real deal. Clean beauty is also vegan-friendly and cruelty-free so these products contribute to a greater cause which is amazing. Most of these ingredients also rank low on the "irritation & sensitivity" chart. Who says you can’t save the planet and slay at once?
