Learn your skin

Switching to nontoxic beauty products won't necessarily lead to glowing skin immediately because each brand and formula will work differently from one person to the next. You should be patient to see how your skin reacts to this new experience. When you feed it certain nutrients and formulas, nontoxic products will do wonders for your health and let you know your skin all over again.
