Clearing out my make up and nail polishes (formaldehyde et al), and I cannot believe there are parabens in LUSH make up. I really thought they'd be 'nasty free', considering they're 'natural'!!!
I'm replacing all my make up that contains parabens, phtalates, and other chemical nasties, with natural (and organic where possible), False lashes and lash glue (replacing my glue with a natural formula), and an extensive nail Polish collection, with stick on nails etc, to natural ones.
So far I've ordered one new zoya nail polish in white (as that's the shade I wear most.), have bought benecos concealer, some nude coloured lipstick, gloss and pencils by avril, and brown eyeliner and bronzer, couloeur caramel black eyeshadow (which is what I'm gonna use for winged eyeliner above my eyelids) and more hurraw lip balms.
Just need to get a few other bits, so I'll have a more minimalistic make up dressing table, that will not only take up less space, but will do my skin, body and nervous system wonders!
I started changing up my skincare routine a few weeks back too, using coconut oil or the inside on banana skin as cleanser, Apple cider vinegar if I've had a breakout, oats to wash my face, and organic vitamin c solution for my skin, sometimes rosehip oil for moisturiser, alongside a few other organic and natural face creams I use on rotation.
For a face mask, I concocted one that I keep in the fridge. It has avocado, ground flaxseed, oats, a little acv, and purified water all blended together until smooth.
Research into WHY these nasties are no good for us. I vaguely knew parabens weren't good, but never fully knew WHY.
I DO NOW!! (Explains why my female cycle was all out of sync. Contributing factors of chemical laden make up products did not help matters one bit!!)
The skin is our largest organ, and we do absorb everything we put on it.
