A New Beauty Essential :: No More Dirty Looks.

There is no doubt that the Summer of 2010 has been the beginning of something truly beautiful. Not only are more eco fashion collections gaining the attention of mainstream media and fashion editors, but many of our outdated notions about what constitutes healthy beauty are increasingly being peeled back and laid bare for closer inspection. The recent release of No More Dirty Looks by journalists Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt, is a welcome blast of fresh air in an industry that has been dulled by stifling policies and toxic attitudes about consumer health and safety. It seems obvious that with increased focus on what is in our food, our textiles, and the environment at large – we might finally take a closer look at the daily regimes we adopt as part of our personal cosmetic rituals. No More Dirty Looks serves as an accessible and refreshingly sassy guide for consumers to become better informed about hazardous ingredients in beauty and cosmetic brands, as well as the impact of pervasive mystery ingredients on our long-term health. Emma Grady at Treehugger asked the authors some pointed questions about their findings during an interview at the NYC book launch party this past week*. Do not miss Emma’s video chat with Siobhan and Alexandra and see how their candid discussion reveals that ‘dirty looks’ and industry practices impact every woman, girlfriend, and beloved family member. The decisions we make about responsible beauty and ‘how to get that glow’ are ones that we now must make with bold investigation and open doors.
