Are you feeding or sealing?

A gorgeous natural beauty guru I follow, called Grace, shared an interesting article today.
It ties right in with the DIY scrub I just posted.

We often just don’t know what we get in our fancy, 1000 ingredients-list, skin care products anymore!
There’s actually a lot of stuff in there that’s used as a filler, to save the companies money.
It doesn’t contribute to your skin’s health, and some ingredients even do more bad than good!

If you’re curious, definitely read the acticle here. And then check the ingredient list on your products.

1st ingredient on the list here: paraffin, a filler that can clog pores and cause break outs.

As with everything though, what works for you is personal. If it works for you, why not.
I think it’s just generally important that we know, as consumers, what the ingredients are.
Not only because it’s good to know possible side effects, but also because there’s no need to pay a crazy amount of money for fillers.

The good news is, there’s a lot of brands out there that boycott these fillers as well.
Just be a conscious consumer and pick the right ones! LOL

What do you think? Do you think it’s important to check ingredients, and do you do this already? Let me know!
