My awareness for harsh ingredients all started with a lecture of the book “No more dirty looks” by Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt. It was one of the most life-changing books I’ve read so far.
It was shocking to read what hazardous chemicals we let our bodies penetrate daily just by using our beloved cosmetics.
They summarize like that:
NO MORE DIRTY LOOKS: The Truth About Your Beauty Products and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetic is an exciting new book from journalists Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt.
Your lipstick. Your nail polish. Your conditioner. Most of us don’t realize that the products we use every day can expose us to thousands of chemicals that are readily absorbed through our skin. The impact on your health? It’s not pretty. In this must-read new book, Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt leave no bottle unturned. They found out all kinds of things the cosmetics industry doesn’t want you to know, and now they’re going to share it with you.
• The most dangerous ingredients in widely-used brands— and how they’re still not regulated
• Insider secrets from top scientists, dermatologists, and experts
• The 100 best clean makeup, hair care, and skin care products
• Cheap and simple do-it-yourself beauty recipes
It’s easy to make the switch to clean cosmetics. From mascara to moisturizers, shampoos to sunscreens, No More Dirty Looks will help you detox your regimen. Now you can be beautiful inside and out—because coming clean is the best look yet.
I encourage you to read that book. It’s where I started understanding why I had these sensitive skin issues, split hair ends and dried out nails.
My aim for 2014 is to use up the few unclean products I still have and to become totally natural. It is the two ladies from the book who could convince me that healthy beauty products aren’t boring, limited or bad. They’re fun and make you look a lot prettier than all the filthy crap out there.
