Beauty Tips / Make It Work

Loftiss says “Make It Work” Monday: Products with Purpose

As you know I’m the Beauty Editor for Central Florida Magazine and this month I wrote an article called “Products with Purpose. November is a month to be thankful for what you have and to give back to the world around you. Many style and beauty brands have chosen to “do good” with their success. Next time you are shopping for yourself or for someone else, reach for these brands and feel happy knowing your money is going to a good cause. I thought I’d share with you my favorite ones that will warm your heart.
