Don’t deny that half your lipstick’s eaten up by mid-day! 😅
Yet, it’s strange that till very recently how less we knew or questioned or were concerned about the ingredients in our cosmetics. It probably has to do with the impatient need to look good at any cost, to associate with a haute brand or just convenience or habit. •
It’s all changing surely and not so slowly, beautiful! We are now increasingly mindful of what’s in our products and that awareness may just save us some health scares , nourish our skin WHILE making us look great and also be good for our planet & communities! •
Here’s some clean lipstick brands in India. Make a #cleanswap with all natural, nourishing lipsticks at brands like @soultree.in , @rubys.organics , @organistick , @barvaskintherapie , @qtrove (Vilvah Melted Lipstick)
If you have tried any of these or any other clean lipstick brand, drop in a comment with your yay or nay , a recommendation or a boycott! Would love to hear about it.💖
Though we are not in favour of giving coffee to the Kids !!! But what was the most hospitable thing done by @starbucksindia that left a very big impression . They have offered a flavoured milk to the baby when the one was very cranky over the cup of coffee being taken by us !!! Usually during travels you tend to face such problems and giving healthier is always a better idea . We still love her cute dress @trulybangkok and owl footwear which she losted just like her other ones @trulybangkok But @starbucksindia is amazing . If you are at airport do visit them for some milk for the baby and the amazing coffee for which we all know. #bangkok#indowestern#modern#minimodel#cutebabies#kidsfashion#mumbaimodel#mumbaikar#mumbai#delhibased#delhigram#gurugramdiaries#delhi#loveforkids #
Nopes. Not an industrial lab list. Just a few of the hundreds of chemical ingredients that go into making our cosmetics. Some of these contribute to endocrine disruption, allergies, skin discolouration and have been linked to cancer as well.
Till a few years back, in India one had no options or awareness but today, for almost every toxic cocktail out there, there is a clean substitute. It’s your local, artisan, plant-based, home grown clean beauty brand, made in small batches with safe ingredients. Products both effective and lush with natural nourishing goodness. Look out for them at stores, online , at farmer markets and pop-ups!
The choice as a consumer for your skin is in your hands - naughty or nice? Read the labels, be aware, look beyond fancy packaging and celeb endorsements, look out for quality clean beauty brands. Stay beautiful AND safe. 🌷
