Healthy Skincare and Beauty Products Under $30 that You Can Find Almost Anywhere

When it comes to our health, we rarely think of how our beauty products affect our health. In actuality, we should be very concerned with the items we choose to apply topically.
 
We are in the middle of a “chemical revolution” where many companies produce products made with surprisingly harmful chemicals. Companies do not openly disclose the potential health hazards that those chemicals may pose to your wellbeing, from cancer-causing agents to endocrine disruptors and other chemicals that cause harm and could affect you immediately and/or in the future.
 
Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It absorbs everything you apply to it and sends those materials straight to your bloodstream. When you use products with questionable ingredients, you put your body at risk for numerous health complications. Enter the rise in adult and childhood cancers, autism and reproductive difficulties.
