What’s Lurking in Your Beauty Products?

I have a question for you, dear readers: How many beauty and personal care products do you and your family members use per day? Myself, I go through the usual products: soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, lotion, sunscreen (sometimes), makeup (sometimes), deodorant. The average adult uses between 9 and 15 products a day, according to a survey conducted by the Environmental Working Group. Here’s what you might not realize: By using standard, conventional products, the average woman puts more than 150…

I Choose Joy This Holiday Season

Dear Readers: I’ve been feeling defeated lately. Mentally exhausted. Worn out. Maybe you have, too. The world is weighing on me, readers, with a capital W. Maybe it’s weighing on you, too.
