About Beauty Lite

Hi everyone!  Welcome and thank you for checking out my blog!  I’m just your average woman who is slightly addicted to makeup, skin care, hair & beauty products.  I distinctly remember my friends back in middle school calling me a product junkie!

More recently, my love of reading makeup & beauty blogs along with watching Annie Leonard’s “Story of Cosmetics”, has opened my eyes to all of the chemicals and toxins we expose ourselves to every day.  There have been multiple studies done on these ingredients and they have been found to be related to higher cancer rates and reproductive issues, among other things.  Personally, my family has been affected by cancer more than once.  Both of my parents have had “run in’s” with skin cancer and my mom later passed away from breast cancer.  Because of this (and other reasons mentioned in the video) I have chosen to reduce the amount of toxins, chemicals, and artificial fragrances I expose myself to.

I am going to be blogging about my transition from using beauty products and cosmetics full of toxins to more pure products.  I can’t guarantee there won’t be fumbles and missteps along the way, that’s just all part of the journey, and I really hope you will join me.

Thank you! ~Danielle
