DIY Natural Skin Care

Everything you put on your skin is absorbed into your body.

Toxins and chemicals in store-bought products and fragrances are linked to all sorts of issues.

From hormonal problems, irregular periods and infertility to allergies and even cancer.

Over 1,300 ingredients have been banned for use in cosmetics in the European Union known or suspected to cause cancer, genetic mutation, or birth defects.

Only 10 of these products are banned here in the U.S.

You can still use  store-bought products, but always look at the ingredients list and know what you are putting on your skin.
