The idea: a life with less stress, less strain, more energy and more beauty on every level. If you are searching for holistic wellness, you know that your beauty routine is not exempt from a little need for detoxification. There are more chemicals in your average bathroom and makeup bag than you can imagine, and the typical bathroom and makeup bag contains more than a few doozies where your health is concerned. From hormone interruptors to carcinogens lurking in your bathroom toilitries, there are compelling reasons to pay more attention to the labels of your beauty products. A small switch here and there can really make a difference where the toxic load of your life is concerned.
Celebrity makeup artist Chantal Moore tests and curates the best of balanced beauty here weekly, and I can’t thank her enough for introducing me to lip glosses, body scrubs, natural serums and even holistic remedies that have transformed my skin and my whole beauty routine in 2013. Chantal takes a balanced approach to beauty and her very high standard for products has been eye-opening for me. If you are looking to switch to more “natural” beauty and you are not sure what actually “works as well” as the traditional lab-hatched makeup and beauty goodies, this list will get you going!
