Our skin is our largest organ, so it makes sense that the products we put on it or come in contact with have access to do some damage to our hormones & overall wellbeing.
Have a habit of buying cheap skincare, body care, or beauty products? Drugstore makeup junkie?
Bewareeee – Unfortunately your favorite items mayyy not love you as much as you love them & could be contributing factors to acne or hormonal imbalance symptoms!
This applies ESPECIALLY to our guys out there who tend to not think about this stuff much♥️
EWG.com has a database called SkinDeep where you can check the products you love. There’s also an app called ThinkDirty with similar functions. Sometimes products don’t show up in either, so try doing your research by scouting labels & surfing the companies websites.
