"The best thing is to look natural,
but it takes makeup to look natural."
- Calvin Klein


With thousands of beauty products on the market for men and women, how do you know what is truly beneficial or actually causing harm? The skin is the largest organ of the human body. What you feed your skin soaks into the internal organs, thus affecting how they work. Like skin, fingernails and toenails are porous. What you feed your nails soaks into the body as well.

As with food intake, read the label of ingredients in the product. If you cannot pronounce the word or are not familiar with it, look it up. Sometimes organic/natural products use the latin word of the herb, oil or fower in the description. Be aware of the terminology by searching the internet prior to purchasing a new product.
