Smarter Makeup Choices

Ladies, we’ve all heard the expression “beauty is pain”. But I, for one, have never heard anything about beauty having to be toxic. The sad fact and reality is that toxins are absolutely everywhere these days, including on your face, in your makeup bag, and on your body. We may not notice them when they’re being masked with delicious scents that make us swoon, but trust me, they’re there. And the effects of repeatedly exposing your body to these toxins over time, can be profound.

Of course, being in the profession of naturopathic medicine often means looking for cleaner alternatives, even when it comes to cosmetics. I was fortunate enough to be part of the opening of one of the most amazing stores in Toronto – The Detox Market.

Here, I learned all about the cleanest, most environmentally friendly, organic products including shampoo, deodorant, lipstick, bronzer, mascara, household items, soap, toothpaste, skincare, and so much more. I want to share some of my favourites with you and have attached a gallery of all of my go-to items. Keep in mind that while most of these products are from TDM, I am in no way sponsored by the company and have also shared brands found at other stores. Klorane Dry Shampoo can be found at drug stores like CVS or Shoppers Drug Mart, and Lavanila’s Healthy Deodorant can be found at Sephora.
