I want to ask you something…
Do you ever feel like life is just too much?
Too much work.
Too much chaos.
Too much weight.
And I’m not just talking about physical weight, although that’s a big challenge, too.
I’m talking about the burden of living a life that’s so full of demands, you never get to fulfill your real purpose.
We can all agree that nothing makes you look or feel as gorgeous as sun-kissed, skin?!!
From the beginning of the season to the end, showing off that summer skin is what we all look forward to while we’re sunning, funning and beaching! Am I right…or am I right?
But it’s not all bronzing and bathing suits, sun-kissed skin has the potential to become a real beauty hazard. No, I’m not referring to sun damage because I know all my Primal Lifers are using the right products for daily summer care, and before and after sun protection.
I’m referring to “mismatched foundation syndrome”.
Yes, you heard that right! That’s when your golden-glow
and makeup are no longer perfectly paired.
It’s well known from extensive research that fragrance is a common sensitizing ingredient for all skin types. Yet, despite this information, fragrance is common in more skincare products than you can imagine.
Many people don’t realize the damage fragrance does to your skin and your body… and if you think you are “safe” because you purchase “unscented” products, think again.
Many synthetic ingredients used in skincare (natural products included, especially water-based skincare) have a horrible odor.
In order to cover up the bad odor, so you will apply it to your face or body, companies will use fragrance (the F-word of skincare) to neutralize the bad odor… odor eater chemicals if you will.
So, when it comes to your beauty care products, the magic rule of thumb is the first 5 ingredients are the ones that matter the most. After the fifth ingredient everything else is probably below the 1% line. This is where a lot of “questionable and obscure” ingredients hide.
What? 1% line? What the heck is that?
Simply put, any ingredient that is less than 1% of the total recipe can be listed in any order. This is a great marketing ploy and a way companies can make you believe the ingredients are “better” than they really are.
How to find the 1% line?
Are you feeling like a Clean Beauty Snob (CBS) yet?
Today’s lesson is going to open your eyes to what clean really means.
Natural sounds healthy right? But when you take a closer look, does natural mean toxin-free?
Not when you are a CBS.
