Toxins we use on a daily basis

Did you know that, on average, every single day, women use 10 products containing around 120 chemical toxins? It’s easy to focus on what we eat, but we forget what we’re putting on our skin. Our skin is the biggest organ in our body; it absorbs at least 60-90% of what we put on it, in a matter of minutes. You will be surprised to know how many chemicals you’re using every day, without even knowing. Think about it: On a daily basis we use shampoo, soap, skin care, toothpaste, makeup, perfume, deodorant and even nail polish, all of which contain countless chemicals that are a risk to our health.  These chemicals are associated with allergic reactions and are known to cause not only asthma, headaches and dermatitis, but also hormone disruption, nervous system disruption, mental illness and even cancer. Now, we know this sounds daunting, but there are plenty of healthy alternatives available to you and you can find them by just reading the labels! It can be difficult to know exactly what you should be …

Pro Tips: Create a flawless base

I’m going to let you in on a BIG secret…You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to create a fabulously, flawless makeup base. Shhhhhhh! With just a little help Ere Perez and moi, you can create a photoshoot-ready base with minimal fuss, each and every day. Hooray! STEP 1: Prep the base When creating a work of art, it’s so important to have a clean, smooth canvas to begin with. The same principle applies to your skin! Firstly, make sure your face is clean, then prepare the skin with your moisturizer of choice. Gently press a small amount of oil or lotion onto your skin – this not only ensures there’s no excess product, but also brings blood-flow back to the surface, which will ensure you’re glowing from the get-go. Allow a few minutes for it to soak in before moving on to Step 2. STEP 2: Creating a beautiful foundation Now comes the fun part with Ere Perez’s gorgeous Natural Oatmilk Foundation and Eco Vegan Multipurpose Brush. When it comes to foundation application, consider …

Health is a journey, not a destination

By guest blogger, Dr Leandra Brady-Walker, aka “Cosmo Hippy”. “I want it all!” It’s the catch cry of the millennials. We want to be able to juggle career and home, be healthy, be happy, take time out while climbing the social and work ladder. We want eco, we want fashionable, we want luxury, we want affordable. In short, we want it all. I firmly believe that we can have it all. But just not all of it right now. You see, real lasting change takes baby steps. Just as Rome wasn’t built in a day, a balanced life takes time and commitment to build. So start small. Commit to doing one new thing a week. Maybe it’s getting an extra hour of sleep or drinking an extra glass of water or swapping your toxic lipstick for a healthier version. Whatever it may be, it is these small steps that add up to the big picture. And if you fall, just pick yourself up and keep going, remembering that health is a journey and not a …

Ere Perez Supports Clean Cut Fashion @ MBFWA

We’re really excited and proud to support Clean Cut Fashion at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (Australia) this year!  Clean Cut is an Australian Ethical and Sustainable Fashion Association advocating and innovating action for a positive impact for future fashion. Their second seminar in the MBFWA Future Talks series was held on May 17, and what a fantastic discussion! The open forum, held by a panel of leading Australian fashion industry professionals, discussed the production of clothing with ethical and sustainable principals in mind. Led by Kellie Hush, Editor-in-chief of Harpers BAZAAR Australia, the discussion included an interview with Ramon Martin, Co-Founder of TOME; Lucy King, Group Sustainability Manager at Country Road Group and Sigrid McCarthy of Ethical Clothing Australia. Sometimes we find ourselves torn between taking good care of ourselves, the environment and trying to look our best. Like Clean Cut, Ere Perez likes to take care of people and the environment while enhancing our own natural beauty. Yes, it is possible to do both! The discussion fits so well with our values as a company, …
