Think Dirty (but DIY Clean)

lip balm DIY

I was shopping for lip color the other day when I found one I really liked, a sort of deep pink with hints of plum. However, when I scanned the label with my think dirty app (you should really download this) I was shocked- it was actually full of harmful chemicals. No thanks.

We all know that many of our favorite cosmetics are full of toxins. In fact, the average woman puts something like 12 to 20 chemicals on their skin a day. Yikes!

In an effort to live a bit cleaner, I thought I’d share this super easy, chemical free, DIY lip tint from Erika Brechtel via sis-site &B. The full “recipe” is here and uses 100% natural ingredients including organic coconut oil, organic beeswax,  organic shea butter,  beetroot powder,  raw cacao powder, and essential oils. I can’t wait to try this!

If DIY isn’t your thing, stick to brands like Burt’s Bees (my favorite 100% natural brand) or vegan, cruelty, and gluten-free Pacifica.
