The article points out that over three hundred chemicals have been discovered in humans over the past seventy-two years that were never there before, and explains that we absorb chemicals in through our skin. It lists different problems that can form, including hormonal imbalances, hyper-sensitivity, obesity, and cancer.
We all know that some beauty procedures are bad for you, like tanning, but I never thought that my foundation might be harming me. I certainly hope that makeup brands put more effort into making their lipsticks and lip gloss safe, because the average woman consumes six pounds of lipstick in her lifetime. Now, I'm trying to suggest that we all need to go shopping right now and replace all of your makeup with natural products. That would be a waste of money, especially if you have a lot of a product left. I do think that as I run out of a certain product, I should look into a natural substitute for it.
What do you think about natural vs. synthetic makeup?
