Not So Pretty in Pink: Marketing Toxic Makeup to Young Girls

Companies market makeup to girls as young as 3, exposing them to toxic chemicals and early puberty.

Lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, perfume: Jessica Assaf applied them all, and more, before she hit 12. By her midteens, she estimates, she was using 15 to 20 beauty products a day. Like many girls, Assaf was indoctrinated into beauty culture at a young age, with makeover-themed birthday parties as early as kindergarten and trips to the nail salon starting in grade school.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm
looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
for something completely unique. P.
S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hello, I do think your site may be having browser compatibility problems.
When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared
to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think
about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to
hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having
side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
Thanks

I think that what you published was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title?
I am not suggesting your content is not good., however
suppose you added a post title to maybe get a person's attention? I mean "Not So Pretty in Pink: Marketing Toxic Makeup to Young Girls" is a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they
create article headlines to get viewers to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get
people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
