We’re big believers in high-quality non-toxic mascara not only to make our eyes stand out but because conventional mascara is filled with chemicals and toxins! So, we went ahead and tried a few brands and picked out our favorites to share with you. No clumps, no goopy junk, no dried out mascara wands.
It’s a New Year, which means it’s time to dump out your old makeup and replace it with clean, non-toxic makeup because it builds up with bacteria that you don’t want in your body. Trust us.
We go through our makeup bags once a year to detox what’s old, especially mascara, which should be discarded every three months. Don’t let that stress you out. We know the feeling of finding a good mascara that you can’t live without and the thought of tossing it is heartbreaking. But, have no fear, we’re making your beauty routine easier than ever with our top non-toxic mascara brands.
Chemicals in Beauty Products
Before we share our favorites with you, let’s talk chemicals. First of all, your skin is your biggest organ so anything that you’re putting on your skin such as perfume, shampoo, conditioner, nail polish, mascara, body lotion, etc will get into your bloodstream. Don’t believe us? Check out our feature How to Detox Your Personal Care Products.
Amie’s best-selling book, Eating Clean: the 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation and Reset Your Body is filled with an entire chapter dedicated to chemicals that are lurking in your everyday products. This book includes charts of the chemicals to avoid and what brands she loves to use.
Our 5 Minute Makeup Routine
We like to keep our makeup simple whether it’s getting ready for weekend night out or a day at the office, all you need is a fabulous mascara (and an eyelash curler) as well as a little touch of blush on your cheekbones and a touch of the same color on your lips (or just add lip gloss). That’s our formula when we’re out and about. Easy, simple and super fresh, which is just what you need to make your life easier and cut down on your ‘getting ready’ time.
