Today we’re going to be talking about natural beauty and body products. This topic has become increasingly popular, and since what we use on our bodies impacts our health, I thought it would be great to make this topic an episode. We’re chatting with Megan Roosevelt, who’s a registered dietitian and the founder of Healthy Grocery Girl. I came across Megan on the interwebs, and saw that she had written a few pieces on naturalizing your beauty pantry. I absolutely love her site, articles, and recipes, and so it’s such a treat to have her chat with us about this topic today!
Here’s an overview of what we covered:
- Why is it important to watch out for what ingredients we put on our body (lotions, makeup, soaps, etc)?
- What exactly is considered natural in cosmetics?
- Key ingredients to avoid when choosing makeup & some of the major ingredients to avoid in body care products
- Practical tips for introducing safer products
- Helpful nutrition tips for healthy skin & more!
