Saying No to Toxic Ingredients

Happy New Year HIH Family! In the new year, everyone has things they’d like to change, for me, this year I’d like to be more conscious about the ingredients in products I’m using. I’m not someone who is allergic to a lot of things or have sensitive skin so I wasn’t too picky when it came to the ingredients list in my products and as a girl … I use so many products on a daily basis!
