7 Clean & Sustainable Beauty Products For Healthier Skin
When browsing for a new facial cleanser at your local drug store, you may spend hours reading into different products. Seeing the words, “all natural” plastered on a bottle of face wash may have you sold. The harsh reality of those so called “all natural” products is that they aren’t natural at all! The chemicals you can’t pronounce on the back of the bottle can hurt your skin and the environment.
