We recently went on a trip to Wyoming and Colorado. There are two things that happen to be when traveling. I don't sleep well and my beauty routine is not what it should be, plus the environment is different from at home. It's funny the environment I can deal with and the beauty routine as well. It's the lack of sleep that shows up on my face and really makes my skin look shallow and lacking in color. They say you never catch up on sleep but after last night's big snore I am not so sure that's true. I feel a thousand times better and happier today just because I got a lot of sleep.
It't no secret I am an animal lover, so much so that sometimes even my husband wonders what he's married. Animals are a gift and how we treat them says a lot about us. Yesterday there was a story about the cosmetic line Benefit on the morning news. Of course I checked to see if they tested their products on animals. They apparently don't like to answer that question. I sent them an email asking them if they do indeed test on animals I will let you know when I get a reply. Remember if a product needs to be tested on an animal it means there is something in it that is not good for you. They just want to make sure it's not that toxic or harmful. Shame on any company that does animal testing. More to come.
I would encourage all of you to visit the website http://safecosmetics.org/, this website will help you evaluate products that you use everyday on your hair, your body and for women the make-up you use. Our beautfy industry is not regulainted in terms of toxicity of chemicals used. This is a breeding ground of products that we all use everyday that our harmful to our well being and that of those we buy these products for. Chemicals in our products cause cancer, neurological problems, and reproductive problems not to mention skin problems. This website provides a place for you to find out what is in your product and how safe that product is. So before you go into that bathroom tomorrow morning find out what your using on your body, your skin and what's in your make-up.
