Hi joyous readers,
Due to the popularity of my, what's in my makeup bag video, and all the questions I get on beauty products I knew it was time for a new video on facial products that I love.
The key difference with the products I mention in my video is that they are toxin-free and any chemical they do contain is completely harmless. These are products that truly nourish your skin without the use of harsh chemicals or toxins such as:
By the way, when I refer to the “endrocine disruption” what I mean by that is there are literally hundreds upon hundreds of chemicals that can disrupt or “mess” with our hormonal system. The endocrine system is a collection of glands (thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, pineal etc) that produce hormones that regulate reproductive function, sexual function, sleep, mood, metabolism and so on. You can learn about 12 Hormone Altering Chemicals that are found in products beyond just personal care.
Here is the video and I will list out links to all the products below:
I really want you to feel well-informed when shopping for products to use on your face. After watching this video, you can visit a great website run by the Environmental Working Group called SKIN DEEP. Simply type in the search area any product and it will give you a rating of 1 to 10. 10 being severely toxic and associated with many health problems and 1 being safe. I personally avoid products over 3 or 4, but for the most part all my products are a 0 or 1. You will notice many very popular brands of sunblocks top of the list of very toxic.
If you spend a lot of time outside in the sun or you have little ones, I highly recommend you read all 3 of these posts on sunscreen on joyous health. You will be pleased to know there are many safe and clean brands of sunscreen you can use that are very affordable! Green Beaver has a kid's sunblock that I highly recommend.
Here are the products I mention in my video:
Please keep in mind I am not an esthetician so it's important to talk to an expert on your skin needs. I recommend these products because they are clean and they work for me. However, each brand will have other products that may be better suited to your skin than mine. My skin is more prone to dryness. However, certain products in the past have definitely made me break out if they are too heavy.
I do not have any financial ties to these brands and do not make any monetary gains from recommending them.
So we've got your face covered with some great options above, but what about natural beauty products for your body? All of the Joyous Natural Beauty Essentials, from my Smooth Like Body Butta, to Natural Deodorant and more are completely clean and toxin-free.

I hope you enjoyed my video! Keep the questions coming because these types of videos are always inspired by your great questions.
Have a joyous day!
