No, I'm not talking about walking around naked! I'm talking about venturing into the world fresh faced and "bare" of make up! Ha, I knew that would scare you!
Normally I do not wear make-up, but there are days that I still choose to. My husband is not against me wearing make-up, but he does prefer me to not wear it. I personally, am not against wearing make-up in general, but I do have issue with some of the reasons why some ladies wear it. Additionally, I will say that I am totally against make-up that has been badly applied!!! ;)
The purpose of this post however, is to highlight the dangerous chemicals that are in most cosmetics.
Here are just a few of the websites/articles I found online, that are a good source of information about the dangers of chemical laden cosmetics, and which ingredients to watch out for:
Campaign for Safe Cosmetics
Natural Skin Care - Tree Hugger
EWG Cosmetics database
The Rise of Organic Make-Up - Mercola
The Ominous Truth Behind Cosmetic Beauty Claims - Mercola
I couldn't believe how many chemicals the average lady applies to her body and face each day: 130-500 depending on the source!!!
Ladies you are beautiful...I bet your husbands would agree too! We women have also been created in the image of God, that means that God is 100% happy with how you look naturally! If you were unpleasing to Him, He wouldn't have made you that way. So scrape off the "war paint" ladies, let us see the real you, and dare to go bare!
