The Ban on Plastic Microbeads Is Finally Here

The ban on plastic microbreads was a long time coming. I wrote about it over a year ago and am so happy to see it has finally passed! Here’s the quick summary: a few years ago, a number of beauty brands started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs instead of natural exfoliators like coffee grounds, sugar, or nuts because the costs are significantly lower. Unfortunately, as a result, billions of plastic microbeads have been polluting waterways and poisoning fish (the beads soak up toxins in the water which are then absorbed by fish who mistakenly eat the beads thinking they’re food).

Full-Bodied Skin Care: Splurge vs. Save

Anti-aging shouldn’t stop at the neck. In fact, hands are one of the easiest places to spot someone’s age; they’re rarely cared for as well as the face is, and the rest of the body often ends up equally overlooked. If you really want to stay soft skinned, you must pamper yourself from head to toe…
