KNOW YOUR INGREDIENTS
Don't just fall for the party line—check the labels of your beauty products to ferret out their ingredients. Avoid anything with sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, propylene glycol, phthalates, fragrance, or talc. Conventional cosmetic and personal-care products are chock-full of toxic chemicals, but once you identify what they are, shopping for healthier options become much easier.
