Beauty and Makeup Advice to Avoid Like the Plague

Occasionally, bad beauty advice runs amok on social media – causing not a few cringe-worthy makeup moments. Even before the advent of social media, nonsensical beauty “tips” would appear in popular magazines and TV shows. For example, in a magazine for teen girls, the following advice was dispensed: if your mom doesn’t let you wear blush, just pinch your cheeks to give yourself that blushed appearance. First of all, ouch. Second of all, this is “horribad” beauty advice because pinching your cheeks can break blood vessels and create premature wrinkles. Needless to say: don’t pinch your cheeks if you’ve run out of blush. And, along with that suggestion, we’ve got other suggestions for you, too: here’s some beauty and makeup “advice” to avoid like the plague, even if that one random internet stranger thinks everyone should try it.   The Bad Advice: To easily clean your brushes, soak them overnight in soapy, hot water. The Fate That Will Befall You If You Follow This Advice: You’ll wake up. You’ll (sleepily) […]

Erase Your Acne Scars with Natural Remedies (and Organic Makeup)

Acne scars: you hate them, we hate them. And they’re pretty difficult to remove – unless you’re willing to go through somewhat complicated dermatological procedures. Fortunately, though, there are several time-tested, natural ways to heal away those scars and give your facial skin better complexion and clarity.   Here are a few natural approaches you may wish to explore to heal your own skin.   Wearing regular cucumber facial masks – cucumber is jam-packed with potent natural ingredients which treat your skin kindly – rejuvenating it and giving it greater health. For example, cucumber is a good source of silica, which helps nourish your skin cells. It’s also a rich source of potassium – an element which your body uses to keep your skin cells well hydrated. And, to top it all off, cucumber is loaded with vitamin A. This vitamin boosts the production of healthy skin cells and wards off damage from the sun’s UV rays.   Lather your face in lemon juice – because of its acidity, lemon […]

What You Put on Your Skin Goes in Your Body: Make the Switch to Organic Makeup in 2018

What you put on your skin goes in your body. Although skin is an amazingly efficient barrier protecting your internal organs, it is not perfect. After all, skin evolved to block out dirt, bacteria, and other particles found out “in the wild.” Human skin did not have to confront the tiny, insidious industrial chemicals found in many cosmetic formulations – like parabens and formaldehyde – until recently. So when you put these toxic chemicals on your skin, they slip right through your pores and into your body. This is something that cosmetic companies – which base their products on synthetic chemicals, instead of nourishing organic ingredients – don’t want you to know. But it’s true all the same, and the result is a disastrous effect on the health of women around the world. For example, many of the toxic chemicals in cosmetics cause menopause to occur at an earlier age in women. This isn’t something you’ll hear about in the slick advertisements of big-brand cosmetics. You won’t read about this […]

Organic Makeup Lover’s 5 Beauty Hacks

5 Beauty Hacks for the Organic Makeup Lover If you’re anything like us, then you love learning about new “beauty hacks” using completely natural and organic substances (especially considering how toxic chemicals “sneak” into the makeup ingredients of non-organic brands). So, with that in mind, we thought it would be fun to “spill the beans” – to share with you just a few of the organic beauty hacks we’ve come across over the years. It’s all right here – have a look.   Had a recent breakout on your face (eek!)? Try applying some witch hazel to your face – not only can it very effectively help contain breakouts, but sometimes it can even eliminate a breakout entirely. Also along these lines: tea tree oil has been reported as an effective natural oil for treating breakouts. (Note about the witch hazel: if it’s got alcohol in the ingredients, make sure you aren’t putting it near your eyes!)   Looking for a natural makeup remover? Grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, and avocado […]

Why Switching to Organic Makeup is a MUST if You’re in Your 30s

Did you know: (1) The Ancient Egyptians were one of the first people to use makeup (2) You shed about 50,000 skin cells a minute (3) As you age, the pores on your skin get bigger It’s this third and last fact that we’re going to talk about here. So why do your skin pores become larger as you age? One of the reasons why: years of daily exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause your skin to gradually lose its elasticity – so your pores slowly lose the ability to “spring back” to a smaller size after getting clogged with dirt and other particles (this is why it’s so important to clean your face regularly!). Now – not unsurprisingly – this has implications for your makeup (and anything else you put on your face). For example, bigger skin pores means it’s easier for toxic makeup ingredients to slip in through your skin and gradually wreak havoc on your overall health. Consider this: a common poisonous compound found in […]

How Poisonous Metals Sneak Into the Ingredients of Everyday Makeup (And What You Can Do About It)

It may come as an unsavory surprise to some, but toxic compounds have been used in makeup products for thousands of years. In fact, in 18th century Europe lead poisoning reached almost epidemic proportions – largely because of lead-based materials used in face powders and rouges. Today, there is growing awareness of the sheer extent of poisonous chemicals used in makeup and cosmetics. With the publication of Rachel Carson’s seminal Silent Spring in 1962, more and more research has been carried out on the various toxic materials that can be found in products of every kind – and in every area of day-to-day living. It is with this in mind that inspires True Glue to continually push the boundaries of innovation and create completely organic, all-natural makeup lines. Nonetheless, there are still many women who are – sadly – unaware of the dangers of traditional, conventional makeups. And one of the most disturbing aspects of many makeups today is that they frequently contain poisonous metals. Metals like lead (yikes!), arsenic, […]
