What Does Cruelty-Free Makeup Have to do With Self-Care?
Are the products you use in your daily routine compromising your self-care? Find out why you should be paying more attention to animal testing.
Animal testing involves exposing animals to increasingly larger amounts of products until either a negative response or lethal dose is found.
Animals used in these practices include bunnies, guinea pigs, mice, and rats. These animals feel pain just like our dogs, cats, and other pets we cherish so much at home. Beauty should never require this barbaric torture and abuse of animals.
You wouldn't subject your puppy to this kind of abuse!
And since humans and animals are so different genetically, these test often mean nothing from a scientific standpoint: which means all that abuse is for nothing.
What does this have to do with self-care?
While self-care and self-love are an on-going practice typically associated with staying mindful throughout your day, journalling, conscious reflection, and physical care, it also involves identifying the things you do subconsciously that are destructive towards yourself and others.
Take care of yourself and the animals!
By consciously avoiding brands that profit off the abuse of animals, you are doing good for yourself, the animals, and the planet! Self-care involves being aware of the effects of your actions, so you should always be striving to mitigate the harm you do to others.
Choosing cosmetic brands that have taken a stand against animal testing is a great first step in the right direction.
