younique mascara by Kristen YoumansWomen have long been enhancing or attempting to enhance their eyelashes for years.

Many have turned to mascara, and still others have ended up resorting to wearing false eyelashes. Although false eyelashes, otherwise known as falsies, can work to make a woman’s eyelashes more appealing, like many beauty products, they come with a price in more ways than one. Due to the chemical makeup in them, eyelash extensions can cause irritation of your eyes, eyelash loss, and even contribute to infections within the eyes.

Feel Beautiful, Look Beautiful, Be Beautiful,Inside and Out!

Some reactions are due to the woman herself rubbing her eyes, but the chemicals contained in the glue that adhere the individual lashes to a woman’s natural ones are to blame for the majority of negative reactions. The glue can contain formaldehyde among other chemicals. Formaldehyde is found in different beauty products but could be particularly volatile near the eyes or other sensitive membranes. Experts are trending towards advising women to use cosmetic enhancements with less potential side effects, such as mascara.

 

Many types of mascara contain unnecessary and harmful ingredients as well and it is wise to seek out a more natural alternative before deciding to apply anything cosmetic around or near your eyes.

All-natural or naturally-based products like Younique 3D Fiber Lashes may cause less irritation due to the naturally-based ingredients and the mascara could be a wise choice when looking for an alternative to falsies.

Whether you are vegan or not you are probably well aware of the amount of toxins in nearly every commercial beauty product on the market.The simplest rule to follow is to “If you won’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin“.Your skin absorbs everything, that you put on it so when possible choose organic vegan beauty products with no added chemicals or toxins.

Today is day 14 of the raw vegan detox-as I am getting closer to day 21  I am already making plans on how I am gonna celebrate completing it. Here is a quick video , that I just recorded .
Anything , that you put on your skin goes all over your body, so if you won’t eat it, don’t put on your skin”.

A lot of people out there think that vegan and/or safe mineral makeup and skin care products can’t perform as well as the other commercial  products. That is a common myth. There are people who also feel put off by the word ‘vegan’. You don’t have to be on a vegan diet to use vegan cosmetic products – these products are just about the safest products that you can apply on yourself and that is all!Here is whyvegan cosmetics

Harmful toxins are present in every single mainstream body care and makeup products that we use. You can see that by reading the ingredients’ list on any of these products. Unfortunately, these are the very same products that are more conveniently available to us. These products use synthetic chemicals, animal byproducts, little or none vegetable byproducts, and so on. Those  ingredients  are cheap, so the company can make a profit, at the expense of your health.At the end, the consumers suffer without realizing why they are suffering.vegan cosmetics

Safe cosmetics are any cosmetics that use safe minerals, vegetable byproducts, essential oils, fruit and vegetable extracts, floral extracts, nuts, various roots, various waxes. On the other hand, vegan cosmetics are those that use fruit and vegetable extracts and/or byproducts, various roots, plant extracts, essential oils, floral extracts, nuts– the difference is that vegan products do not use any animal byproducts; that includes waxes. So, safe cosmetics do not imply vegan cosmetics.

Here are some resources for you to choose your vegan cosmetics .
