So, you’re going greener and more natural – you’re eating organic, riding your bike to work and investing in some hemp clothing. You are on your way… well, except for the fact that you have a makeup drawer full of not-so-green cosmetics, never mind your bathroom cabinet stacked with lotions and creams with labels that might as well be in a foreign language.
But, you really do love your makeup and skin care products. Must you give them up? If you want to live a healthier life, the answer is yes.
