From Toxic to Non-Toxic Beauty:  Get Your Glow Back

According to ancient Ayurvedic medicine, which is thousands of years old, whatever you put on your skin, you should be able to ingest. We love all of our skin products because they make us feel good and we want our skin to glow, but many people don't realize what these products are really costing us, not only financially, but health wise as well. Read on to learn more about these toxic products and how you can make the change from toxic to all-natural.
