515 Ways Your Makeup Is Out To Get You

According to today’s Daily Mail, the price for beauty is much higher than some of us may have thought.

Research shows that during the average woman’s daily grooming process she puts about 515 harmful, synthetic chemicals onto her body. Yuck is right. This isn’t quite a revelation, but to have it put so bluntly is making our foundation and blush covered skin crawl.  Apparently, perfume is the biggest culprit – it contains a whopping 250 baddies and could be linked to kidney damage. Eeek.

While we definitely don’t advocate for spending your life worrying about every little product, an easy way to decrease risk without sacrificing quality is by using paraben-free makeup. Josie Maran’s cream blush and Korres’ luscious lip gloss have no parabens, sulfates or petro-chemicals and will provide you with a fresh-faced, natural look.

For more safe choices, check out our guides to the best in paraben-free beauty and eco-friendly shopping.
