It’s almost November! You know what that means! That means that you’re about to read a post that’s a month late!!! Bet you’re so pumped! If you’ve been following along at all, you know that one of the things we try to do over here at AllisonRanting.com is empower women. Part of that empowerment is educating women and giving them access to products that are significantly better for their health, than what they’re currently using. If you don’t think the make up you’re wearing now is that that bad, you’re going to want to put a pause on this, and read up on the Five Toxins on Your Face Right Now.
Part of my mission over here at Allison Ranting is to empower and educate other women while I continue to learn myself! I think a HUGE part of being empowered, is choice. When it comes to beauty products, there’s nothing more empowering than knowing what options exist, what exactly is in them, and being able to make the best decisions for your body/health.
Just like the food we put in our bodies, the things we put ON our bodies have incredible effects on our health and wellness. Shampoos, lotions, foundations, etc can actually be very harmful. Ingredients in them have been linked to so many crazy things like hormonal disruptions and even cancer. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably rolling your eyes right now because “everything can cause cancer”. I know there are lots of studies with lots of different perspectives and opinions, but it is ignorant to believe that the things you put on your skin and in your hair (which goes directly into your bloodstream) doesn’t affect your health in any way.
