Link Love: The Week of Love

Some love-ly links to share for the week of love!

6 Ways Kissing Makes You Stronger, from Reader’s Digest.

Hot Water + ACV = Metabolism booster? (I am already testing this one out: and it turns out hot water, even just on its own, is very soothing and energizing—helping me cut back on my mid-afternoon caffeine fix.)

Saffron Rouge has a great post about the benefits of natural mascaras. (Side note: I’m still loving my Living Nature Gentle Makeup Remover.)

The state of California is classifying BPA as a “reproductive hazard,” and I’m thrilled. But there’s more to the story…scan to the end of this page for a little nugget about why you might need to be skeptical of some “BPA-free” claims.

Jolene has a great recipe for “skin juice” a la the gorgeous Naomi Watts.

Finally, this op-ed in The New York Times is generating a lot of buzz. Here’s a snippet:

“Well, the ever-popular formaldehyde — used in nail polish, shampoo, soap and hair straighteners — frequently appears on ingredient lists (sometimes disguised as “formalin”); it’s a known carcinogen. So is dioxane, which rarely appears on labels because it’s not an intentionally added ingredient but a byproduct of manufacturing. (It’s found, for example, in bubble bath.) Some 400 hair dyes and lipsticks contain lead. (In small amounts, but you might not want to kiss your kids if you’re wearing lead-tainted lipstick.) The endocrine disrupters known as phthalates were found by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in pretty much everyone.”

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you have plans for a fantastic weekend. —Aleigh

Beauty Obsession: Living Nature

   
A few weeks ago, I mentioned to Catherine at Saffron Rouge that I’ve been looking for a gentle natural makeup remover. I’m still trying really hard to stick with this year’s beauty resolutions, and the first one—not going to bed with makeup on—was reinforced last week when lovely makeup artist Sally Biondo mentioned that it’s the number one bad beauty habit she encourages people to break.

This idea of never going to bed without cleansing your face is not new—we all know it’s important. And yet, I have to admit, I’m sometimes guilty of breaking this rule. Usually it’s when I’m tired and also trying to also stick with the fourth rule—getting enough sleep! (Which is really an extremely wimpy excuse for not taking good care of your skin.)

Luckily, Catherine sent me three products* that are helping me keep up with my nighttime routine, from a company I’d been longing to try: Living Nature. Read on for details!
