How to Choose Eco-Conscious Makeup
Eco-conscious makeup artist Paige Padgett has incorporated her ecological lifestyle efforts into her passion for beauty. Up to 60 percent of what goes on your skin is absorbed, so what is put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body.
Here are a few tips from the green makeup artist:
1. Read Labels. Shopping for cosmetics is like shopping for groceries. You have to read labels and watch out for toxic ingredients.
2. Plan ahead.Make shopping easier by checking online first for chemically safe companies at www.safecosmetics.org.
3. Trash disposables. Purchase organic cotton wash clothes and natural sponges that you can wash and reuse.
