Avoid These 6 Beauty Product Ingredients
Get in the habit of investigating cosmetics labels, just as you do for food labels.

Just like you would consult the back of a box of cookies to check the calorie content before eating, you should get in the habit of investigating the ingredient lists on your beauty products. Finding truly natural, nontoxic makeup and personal care products can be difficult!
It’s impossible (not to mention unrealistic) to avoid every single suspect ingredient — but by steering clear of products with ingredients that can harm both the health of your body and the health of the environment; you’re taking solid preventative measures. It’s a big step in the right direction.

Spanish artist Antonio Mora is a creative photographer who transforms simple portraits into dreamy landscapes filled with intriguing emotion. In the series, entitled Dream Portraits, the artist elegantly blends two elements together to form an abstract fusion where distinct lines and shapes are no longer evident. The captivating portraits feature hauntingly beautiful faces that emerge from misty black and white forms like tree branches, rivers, bridges, and cloudy skies.
