We love looking nice here at Swish Suits, and I know most women do too. I think you would be hard pressed to find any women that would part ways with all of her cosmetics. That being said, do you know how many toxic chemicals are in your shower kit? Your makeup bag? Your perfume? And what about all these products do you use them all? This month's eco tip revolves around greening up your cosmetics, making beauty healthier for you and better for the environment.

Tip One: Simplfy!

Start by heading to your bathroom. Now throw out anything that you do not use or that is expired. As you are throwing things out think about why you do not use them and be sure not to buy them again.

Tip Two: Go Au Natural

Give yourself a break. You do not have to be made up all the time. Do you really need the a;; makeup, or the fragerence everyday? I am guessing you are pretty beautiful as is.

Tip Three: Choose natural

Many cosmetics are made from chemicals that are harmful to ourselves and the environment, yet we slather them on everyday! (ie deoderant) Choose products that are all natural. They will probably smell better than your perfume anyways. One product that I love is coconut oil. I use it as a deep conditioner and a moisturizer. The lovely nutty smell always lingers too!

Now breath in deep. Ahhhh! Don't you feel better with less clutter and less chemicals? Your body will thank you in the long run. So will the environment!
