Like you, in other words, the average artist simply wants to look prettyit’s just that she’s a pro at nailing it. So we asked Hollywood insider Kayleen McAdams what she uses on herself. Let’s take a look. The 32-year-old look-alike sibling of actress Rachel McAdams , Kayleen always loved makeup but never knew it could be a career.

Think Dirty App Reveals Just How Toxic Certain Beauty Products Are

Eco-friendly products, like plant ingredients, have a long history of safe usage. They offer the element of safety from harmful after-effects. The benefits of going green > Our body responds well to natural ingredients, while it has an in-built resistance to chemical ones. Since many mainstream beauty products use ingredients, that in small doses may not affect us, but in the long-run, can have the reverse effect on our bodies. For eg: Many facial cleansers contain alcohol-based ingredients that end up drying your skin. Knowing your products are chemical-free will ease any worries of allergic and chemical reactions. > A whole range of beauty products exist in nature, as plant extracts are remarkably versatile. So now you will find eco-friendly make-up, hair, skin care and other beauty products as well as herbal remedies free from bulking and binding agents. > With the use of cleaner ingredients, comes cleaner manufacturing. Eco-friendly products use a minimum of packaging waste, and are made of post-consumer recycle wherever possible. So the waste that is disposed off after manufacturing natural products is bio- degradable and free from toxins that do not cause harm to the environment. Are they heavy on the pocket?

But, alas, not all beauty product packages are made equally, and actually squeezing a package to get a product out doesn’t work most of the time. MORE: 25 Thoughts Every Beauty Junkie Has At Sephora Below, we clue you in on a few of the best tips and tricks for getting the most out of your beauty products, before you run to the store to stock up on more. And while you’re there, you may not even have to pick up extras, since this one will last you so much longer. MORE: Are Cult Beauty Products Worth Their Hype? Lotion: Lotions can be one of the hardest products to get every last drop out of. If you’re dealing with a plastic bottle, simply remove the top and cut the neck off with scissors so that it’s large enough to scoop the remaining product out with a spatula or butter knife. You can then store your lotion in a clean tupperware container. Shampoo: For shampoo or conditioner, you can add a tiny bit of water into your bottle and shake it to get the last bit out, but it will dilute the product of course so this will be your last few uses. If you have a plastic container – cut it! To cover it, use tape to seal. Nail Polish: As you get to the end of a nail polish bottle, it tends to thicken up.

Monistat for Hair Growth?

For now, if you want to avoid toxins and chemicals in your food or beauty products and choose effective natural ingredients instead you are going to have to take extra time and energy to do so. I know, it’s frustrating. As is often the case, technology has answered consumer demand for information more quickly than the companies that manufacture the products can produce the info we want. This time it’s an app that will break down what exactly is in your cosmetics and personal care products. This info can be hard or impossible to find, since many products don’t include ingredients listings (they aren’t required to by the government, and claim ‘trade secrets’ are more important that you and me knowing exactly what’s in the stuff we slather on our bodies every day). Products that aren’t ingested aren’t held to the same standards as food or drugs, and many of the chemicals used in everyday products have never been tested for safety they are on the GRAS list, which stands for Generally Recognized As Safe (which only means that they haven’t been proven to be harmful to people, but they also haven’t been proven to be safe). We want you to Think Dirty. from Think Dirty on Vimeo . If you are looking to avoid chemicals like phthalates, parabens and synthetic fragrances, the Think Dirty app is a guiding hand through the confusing world of beauty product labeling. You can input a product name, and you can also scan a product’s barcode.
