Prompt: Write a global issue connecting it to a personal issue
I can’t go to deep into this, but I see the amount of chemicals used in many drugstore products. Especially, I am thinking about all the makeup that has parabens, and sulfates (etc.) and other chemicals that many woman are washing with or putting on their skin. The makeup just sits there all day and I don’t think much of it is good for your skin and causes breakouts, dry skin, and later, things like cancer or skin damage (etc.)
I have good reason to be concerned about this because I love makeup but I have to be extremely careful what I put on my skin because I will break out from chemicals in makeup or develop rashes. This is why I have begun to really look into the makeup I purchase. Is it natural? Does it contain products I can actually read? I have invested in a lot of mineral makeup from makeup lines such as Benefit Makeup, Purminerals, Tarte, Mac Mineral, , Bobbi brown, and Clinique, Even though a couple make ups I use such as Clinique and Bobbi brown aren’t quite natural they are gentle on my skin and often have mineral powders and other products in their lines of makeup. For bath products a big one I love to use is lush. Everything is fresh and produced with products I can read.
I’m not sure it is possible for people, especially woman to use natural and mineral products all the time but there is enough products out there now that we can try to use at least some of those products in our routines.
