Harmful Products in Lotions You Use

The health and beauty industry is much like Hollywood, beauty on the surface toxicity at the core. It’s scary to think about all the harmful chemicals that are used in our products without our knowledge.

Try shopping local, organic, and handmade with products you can guarantee are an excellent addition to your skin care routine.

Bye for now. One Love.
