Last Fall, I had the opportunity to do some freelance work for a few natural and clean beauty companies. I was very excited to work with them because I would be able to put my knowledge of beauty to good use. What I didn’t know was how much more I would learn in the process!
The work I did exposed me to the harsh (and dirty) realities of the beauty industry. I learned all about the nasty ingredients my favorite brands used, their tactics for selling more products and making them last longer on store shelves. And ultimately, I learned about the negative long-term effects all of this has on the body.
I realized how important this was for me to know more about, especially being the beauty lover that I am. But more importantly, I had to know more about it for the sake of my own well-being!
