Our Pick: 7 Scientific Beauty Bloggers to Follow
The days of putting our health under harm so that we can look pretty are far gone. There’s no need to put on your skin or a hair product loaded with toxic chemicals. These beauty bloggers are here to help you to make thorough decisions.
Are you able to read through a hair or skin product and in a minute and get to know the ingredients that are detrimental to your health? It is most likely no, mainly because so many products have an exhausting list of ingredients, and some brands use and abuse marketing jargon and adapt some terms (not to say hide) that confuse and deceive customers.
