clean your brushes

How often do you clean your brushes? I have asked family and friends this question and to my surprise most of them answered that they have never done it!

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.
