By Sherrell Dorsey
E-Book (available as PDF files)
About the Author
The foundation of beauty isn’t smeared across a fashion magazine or displayed prominently on a cosmetics counter. It is shaped in the notion of knowing that beauty is much more than skin deep and shouldn’t be tainted by the products we use to enhance what we’ve already got. Unfortunately, the products we buy to feel “beautiful” come at a not-so-glamorous cost. Carcinogenic chemicals and other toxic ingredients are found in our every day personal care products. As a result, our glamorous routines are affecting the very health of our bodies and our environment. Eco-glamour expert, beauty writer, environmental justice advocate and social entrepreneur Sherrell Dorsey brings you the need-to-know resources and solutions to green your glam. She’ll walk you through detoxing your beauty closet, avoiding toxic chemicals in your go-to items, and discovering a more glamorous way to go green. Eco-Glamorous is an easy to understand resource guide that condenses the wealth of eco-beauty information for the woman looking to take her first steps into the world of eco-glamorous living. This guide spells out how to begin sans the confusion and frustration. In this guide you will learn, discover and share: • • The top chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products to avoid • • Brands that are meeting the mark when it comes to safe cosmetics • • Hands on pampering recipes for healthy skin and a plentiful bank account • • Resources for expanding your eco-glamorous lifestyle beyond the basics In a friendly and compassionate voice, Sherrell Dorsey gives you the primary tools you need to transform your beauty routine all the while staying glamorous while going green.
Welcome to the Green Side of Glamour! I’m that girl that gets ridiculously excited about a trip to the farmer’s market and fervently tweets photos on the abundance of affordable organic items I find during my weekly trips to Trader Joe’s. On the off chance I forget my reusable shopping bag I toss on my shades and go incognito feeling as though I just committed a sin against the planet. If I could recycle everything (and believe me when I say that I’ve tried), I would. Composting has become my new pastime alongside discovering one-of-a-kind items from a consignment or thrift store. And to top it all off, I’d rather mix up a batch of beauty products at home using ingredients I can easily pronounce than struggle with beauty counter trivia. Plain and simple, I adore being green! But I’m not your typical planet-pusher. I don a red lipstick, ombre lacquered nails and at least a four inch heel even on my day off. I’ve completely designed my life around the key principles of eco-glamour: sustainability, healthy-living and cruelty-free fabulousness. With so much information floating around about how to live eco-friendly, I know that it can be overwhelming, confusing and a downright hassle to go green—especially if your schedule consists of long days at the office, running a household and trying not to go insane from the pressures of life. While it can be a pain to add one more thing to your list, now more than ever it is time to pay attention to our planet, our environment and how our bad habits are negatively impacting our health. In our beauty routines alone, hundreds of the products on the market (yes, the ones we use and purchase every day) contain unsafe and potentially cancer-causing chemicals. The truth is, many of us want to find new ways to go green. And whether you’re finally getting started or just need a kick in the skinny jeans to get motivated to do more, this guide will be your personal eco-glamour consultant giving you the need-to-know and how to do it. My goal is that you are inspired and empowered to make small but impactful changes and carry the torch by sharing with the women in your life the benefits of eco-glam living.
