Supporting the Black Community-One Beauty Product at a Time
It is all about beauty/cosmetics today! I am consciously trying to make an effort to practically and continuously support the Black community. In my life, I use and buy a lot of beauty products so I figured, why not ditch and switch to aid in this.
I am no stranger to the "ditch and switch" . When I really started paying attention to ingredients and quality I swapped my high school ride or di e products for cleaner options. Again, when I sold beauty products for an MLM company, I switched my products to exclusively use theirs basically overnight. And now, I am switching the majority of my beauty and cosmetic companies to support brands that are Black owned or are heavily supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. This is so important to me. I really want to be more intentional and aware about where I am giving my hard earned money to.
