When it comes to our skin, we all aspire to have a firm, glowy, even, smooth, plump and clear complexion but sadly, the way to accomplish that often requires the use of harsh, conventional retinol treatments! When it comes to skincare, retinol is basically the ultimate anti-aging ingredient we all want to get our hands on. Nearly every major cosmetic brand has one and almost every dermatologist and skin-care expert recommends it so, what is it exactly?
I don’t know about you but for me, I love a minimalist makeup look with a polished lipstick as my go-to look; however, the sad truth is that lipstick is one of the WORST offenders when it comes to toxic ingredients. While I do believe that any beauty product we use should be clean because lipstick is something that we actually consume while wearing, you always want to make sure the lip products you are choosing are as clean as possible! Another sad truth is that while many stores try to offer us cleaner options, for me, they are still not clean enough for use on the mouth.
