Greening Your Beauty Routine

March 9, 2009 10:08:29 AM PDT
Most Americans use an average of 9 separate products with 126 chemical ingredients each morning. That's not good for your health or the environment. But it is easy to go green, says makeup artist Meredith Baraf. It is so important for people to follow the three "R's" when it comes to going green, Meredith adds: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. From eco-friendly shower gel to toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body products, low-electricity hair-dryers, there are safe, low-cost alternatives.
