Is Your Makeup Poisoning You?

Have you ever realized that by the time you get home in the evening, you never seem to have on as much makeup as when you left in the morning? Sure, it comes off as we rub our eyes and talk on the phone throughout the day, but an interesting study just revealed that women absorb 5 pounds of chemicals from our makeup every year. Really makes you reconsider what you put on your face.

And the chemical absorption isn’t limited to just makeup. Moisturizers, night creams, self-tanners, teeth bleaching cream – your body absorbs some amount of the chemicals in all these products. The idea of bleach and whatever other toxins are in whitening strips floating around in my body? Not very appealing.

So if you ever needed a reason to switch to organic beauty products, this should probably be it. While they may not sound all that sexy — although the new Nvey line is quite sexy — organic beauty products are made from natural ingredients which means they’re not only better for the environment, but better for you as well. Check out a few picks from our favorite natural lines:
