I sat down to my computer last night to blog and I just couldn’t. I was exhausted. (The title from this blog didn’t come out of nowhere lol.) I’ve been dealing with some emotional stuff lately and perhaps I’ll blog about that when I’m ready. Just know that it is hard to be a mommy. It is the most rewarding thing in life I believe, but it comes with its challenges. I wouldn’t trade it for anything…but I have my moments like everyone. Thankfully I had a good therapy session this morning and felt rejuvenated. So here we go…
The tip today is really a recommendation for a really great website! I mentioned it in my previous post. Environmental Working Group: Skin Deep This website is fantastic, especially right before sunscreen season! (Well, every season should be sunscreen season, but you know what I mean).
This website allows you to research all of your cosmetic products to see the environmental impact and health risks associated with them! It gives each item a rating and breaks down each ingredient. It tells you how dangerous the ingredient is and how it could affect you and/or the environment. Every year they release their list of recommended sunscreens for children and I consult it every year before buying more.
There is so much to learn from this website. I have referenced it for years and it has made me a more educated consumer. I feel so much better knowing exactly what I’m putting on my body and what I’m exposing my babies to! The truth is…there are so many harmful products and exposures for ourselves and our kids. Their little systems are still developing and I want to do the best I can to expose them to as few chemicals as possible (within reason!). Check it out!
