What You Need to Know About What’s in Your Beauty Products
The average American woman uses 12 beauty products each morning, the average man uses six. But how healthy are they?
Pretty scary when you start thinking about it. Day after day we put these great smelling lotions and potions on our bodies. But what are they really made out of, and what are they doing inside our bodies? The answer is: making us toxic on the inside, contributing to an unhealthy body.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love great smelling products too. But when you realize what is in them and what they are doing to your health I think you will think twice about it.
Here is a great example to think about. When we take a shower we use pretty warm water. The warm water opens up all our pores, and the skin is able to absorb more due to the warm water and open pores.
Did you know there are around 20 toxic chemicals in your toothpaste alone?
We then take shampoo with lots of chemicals and shampoo our head. The skin between our head and our brain is less than one inch thick. Thank goodness there is a skull there to give the brain some protection.
Okay, so now the soap is running down the rest of our bodies is absorbing in the skin and then going down the drain and being recycled into our drinking water.
Makes you want to read the labels of your beauty products doesn’t it? These skin care products are my absolute favorite.
Start making better choices not only in your food (we all know organic is best), but in your beauty products too.
