the beauty part

so 5 years ago I went on a search for a natural/organic/non chemical sunblock...This is easier to find now than it was then. I also found a very thorough list of chemicals to avoid in products we use on our bodies faces and hair. That made it more complicated. Then I also discovered EWG.org which is the base of the Environmental working group which works on our behalf to make this world safer for all of us by raising awareness regarding chemicals in our lives. On their website they have a link called SkinDeep where you can find out all about all those products you use that you really shouldn't be using...you will be amazed by what is in your makeup, shampoo, soap and moisturizer. Go for a visit...later I will be posting the products and companies I like best for myself...
I really shouldn't have gotten cancer...Eating organic and changing my products was not enough but it probably made it all better...

Just a reminder---I had a mammogram Jan of 09, a doctor's exam April of 09 and found my lump late June 09--in just two months I went from non-palpable to palpable...

Do your breast self exam! It needs to be a part of our beauty routine like my friend Mary Nilan of Get In Touch says
"Breast self exam like brushing your teeth!"
