Of course, I’ve always known that my skin is my largest organ that absorbs tons of things each day. It wasn’t until I really started to intentionally reduce and eliminate toxic products from our home that I truly realized the relevance of what I put on my body and the impact it has on my health. I’m more of a label reader now, and I am trying my best to switch out all of the chemically loaded products that I used to use. Body wash, hand soap, hand purifier, dish soap, laundry soap, kitchen cleaner, toothpaste are all items we use on a daily basis, and they are essential items in our homes. But, they also include so many chemicals and toxins that are detrimental to our health. I have already made the switch to natural, chemical-free Young Living products in our home in some areas; there are more products to switch, but of course, it’s a process and a lifestyle change that will take some time. I’m doing it for my health and the health of my family.
Because I’m more conscious about the products I use now, I’ve been wanting to make the switch to chemical-free makeup. I’ve thought about it for a long while now, and I have finally went all in and purchased Sweet Savvy makeup. Blush, lipstick, foundation, eye shadow, and mascara are the items I ordered, and I cannot wait to get them in the mail. This will be my first makeup switch. And I will admit, I’m a little nervous making this switch. I’ve used an expensive brand of makeup, the kind you find at Dillards, my entire life, but I’m ready to make this lifestyle change.
I come to this realization after applying a moisturizer to my face that was this particular brand and experienced an intense burning sensation. I mean my face was on fire!!! I knew right then that I needed to make a change and find a natural makeup that would benefit my health, instead of continuing to use a makeup brand that was truly harming my body.
Sweet Savvy is going to be my first encounter with this type of makeup, but I’m also interested in Beauty Counter too, which I may try in the near future : )
If you have been wanting to switch up your beauty routine and start fresh with chemical-free makeup, I encourage you to go all in and make this change along with me. There will be challenges along the way, as is with any new thing you try, but I know, for me, it’s time to make this change for the benefit of my health.
I also ordered the makeup brush kit because I have never owned proper brushes to use to apply my makeup. I’m ecstatic about receiving them too and seeing what using the right brush will do for my makeup application : )
