Healthy Beauty Brands

As a health professional, I find that having healthy makeup brands is just as important as eating healthy foods. Everything that you put on your skin eventually makes it into your bloodstream. Because of this, you need to make sure that you are choosing products that don't contain harmful ingredients. If you would like to read more on this subject, you can check out A Dancer's Diary.

The most common ingredients that can be harmful to your health include:

Sodium lauryl sulfate (can cause skin irritations, sores, and acne)

Polyethylene/PEGs (carcinogen and contains pollutants)

Titanium dioxide (carcinogenic)

BHA (can cause liver damage and cancer)

Triclosan and triclocarban (can cause hormone disruptions, impaired immune response, and bacterial resistance)

Parabens (can cause breast cancer, hormone disruptions, and reproductive/developmental disorders)

Retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate, retinoic acid, and retinol (can become carcinogenic in the sunlight)

Petroleum distillates (contaminated with cancer-causing impurities)

"Fragrance" or parfum (chemicals that can be hormone disruptors)

Cocamide DEA (chemicals that can cause liver, skin, and thyroid cancers)

Even though this list may seem a little scary because most of those ingredients can be found in most beauty products, I am going to share some great natural companies that don't use any of the above toxins. If you would like to learn more about their products or would like to purchase, click the company title. (I'm not being sponsored by any of these companies)

These six companies are some of my favorites and they have proven to be some of the best in the business.

Combine this with a healthy diet and some exercise, and you're good to go!
