Did you know your skin is one of the most absorbent organs in your body? Well, it is – so what you put on it is important!
Growing up, I didn’t give too much thought (if any) to the body lotion, shampoo, or foundation I was using. During my teenage years, I only cared about two things when selecting those products; that they smelled good and that they were cheap. It wasn’t until years later that I started realizing that I probably shouldn’t be applying products that have parabens and other chemicals that could certainly give me cancer or damage my body in other ways.
And that’s when I decided to go “bare.” If you know me, you know I barely use makeup, lotions, scented soap, or deodorant (and for the record, you don’t have to stink to be healthy; applying fresh lemon in your armpits every morning works better than any deodorant on the market. And you’ll smell like citrus all day!). And for the special occasions when I wear makeup, I only wear the healthiest one: Honest Beauty.
The Honest Company was born out of a simple purpose: to create safe, effective products for everyone. They created a NO List™ — a list of over 2,500 chemicals/materials they choose not to use in their products.
These products are not only healthy and high-quality, they’re also affordable – unlike Dior, Clinique, and all the fancy high-end brands out there. And to round it all out, the company is founded by a Latina entrepreneur, actress, and mom of three: Jessica Alba.
Do you need any more reasons to switch to Honest? I sure don’t!
