Do you ever even look at the ingredients in your beauty products? If not, it’s ok, we’re not judging you. And we’re not trying to scare you, but many beauty products contain some pretty mysterious chemicals. Things like parabens or triclosan might sound like tongue twisters, but they’re also the names of some pretty common chemicals in your favorite shampoos, moisturizers and face creams. Spoiler alert: they shouldn’t be.
When many of our beauty products are filled to the brim with chemicals that we can’t even pronounce, it’s easy to turn a blind eye to them and just hope for the best. But you shouldn’t — these chemicals do more harm than good, and you should be paying attention to where they’re coming from.
Check out the full list of ingredients to ditch below and opt for more natural products — your skin (and body) will thank you for it.
