Eco-chic wedding beauty tips

Avoid Toxic Ingredients: Some perfumes and other fraganced beauty products contain phthalates, which are suspected of causing cancer, birth defects, and irritation, and are present in many personal care products.

Try hydrosols: a hydrosol is the water that remains after using steam or water distillation to create an essential oil, which can be used as facial toners or in other skin-care products. It can also be used as light cologne or body spray.

Find non-toxic products: There are a number of chemical-free beauty product alternatives. Some are in the form of essential oils, many of which have been used to trigger positive psychological and physical reactions. Aromas such as bergamot, grapefruit, jasmine, and lavender, for instance, all smell great and have also been reported to help reduce stress, while cypress and orange are support confidence. Organically grown essential oils are much healthier for the environment, the people who cultivate them, and the people who use them.

Support companies doing good
: Choose products from companies like Burt's Bees, Kiss my Face, Jasons products, Avalon Organics. All of these companies have signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, a pledge that their products are free of chemicals known or suspected of causing cancer, mutation, or birth defects.

Avoid Benzoyl Peroxide: This ingredient often causes excessive dryness of the skin, and salicylic acid is a notorious skin irritant - both of which are found in non-natural pimple creams.
