Your skin is a liv­ing, dy­namic or­gan, and what you put on it is ab­sorbed into the cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem. at means harsh chem­i­cals, ir­ri­tat­ing fra­grances, and toxic preser­va­tives in your makeup may be mak­ing a steady route into your body. Ready to re­vamp your make-up bag? Here’s a sam­pling of some of our fa­vorite all-nat­u­ral (and still beau­ti­ful) op­tions.

. Foun­da­tion and con­cealer. Be­cause foun­da­tion, con­ceal­ers, bronz­ers, and blushes are not washed o —like soap or sham­poo—they’re in con­tact with your skin for hours at a time and have a greater chance of caus­ing ir­ri­ta­tion and introducing tox­ins. In­stead of harsh bases, liq­uid foun­da­tions and con­ceal­ers con­tain nat­u­ral oils and botan­i­cals like shea but­ter, avo­cado, aloe vera, jo­joba, rose hip oil, chamomile, and cal­en­dula to soften and nour­ish skin. An­tiox­i­dants like rose­mary, pome­gran­ate, green tea, and white tea ex­tract help in­hibit en­zymes that break down the skin’s elas­tic­ity. And be sure your foun­da­tion also con­tains non­toxic sun pro­tec­tion. Best choices—ti­ta­nium diox­ide or zinc ox­ide. Beau­ti­ful choices: Min­eral Fu­sion Liq­uid Foun­da­tion, Zuzu Luxe Cream Con­cealer, Gabriel Cos­met­ics Mois­tur­iz­ing Liq­uid Foun­da­tion, Min­eral Fu­sion Sheer Tints, Zuzu Luxe Oil-free Liq­uid Foun­da­tion . Pow­ders, bronz­ers, and blush. Main­stream pow­dered bronz­ers and blush are made with talc, which can be con­tam­i­nated with as­bestos bers and may be toxic and car­cino­genic. Nat­u­ral pow­ders and pow­dered bronz­ers or blush are made with kaolin, corn starch, or mica. Col­ors and tints usu­ally come from nat­u­ral min­eral pig­ments like black, red, and yel­low iron ox­ide, not coal tar or syn­thetic dyes.
