Better Beauty: How I Broke Up with My Toxic Makeup for Good

| Beauty and Style, natural beauty, Self Care, Wellness

My Better Beauty Makeup Routine is a Perfect follow up to my Safer Skincare Regimine.

You can read about my safer skincare transition here!

Once I realized that toxins in the environment can negatively impact anyone’s health and mess with my already compromised immune system (rheumatoid arthritis is quite enough to deal with, thank you very much) I made the commitment to swap out our products containing dangerous chemicals for ones that have tested safe on the EWG database. You can check your products here. 



I started my better beauty quest with a set to get a jump on my makeup overhaul.

I am not a patient person once I have made a decision, so I cannot adequately explain how freeing it was to toss out countless half-used toxin-filled products from my overflowing makeup drawer all at once!


I said goodbye to lead, heavy metals, parabens, synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde, and more and Hello, to REAL beauty with the Beautycounter Flawless in Five set!
