Your skin takes it in..
Beauty is only skin deep, but toxins go deep to the bone...if what you put in shows on the outside, what you put on shows on the inside.
Studies show that what is put on the skin, gets absorbed by the skin and into the body. Scary, right?
The majority of skincare products, whether they’re cheap ‘n nasty, or come off the shelves of an expensive beauty department, contain toxic chemicals that end up in the bloodstream and the lymphatic system. These toxins can make your skin sensitive, and even cause cancer.
Choosing the right products
Now what if you’re using bad toothpaste, bad hair shampoo, bad hair conditioner, bad moisturizer, bad soap, and bad makeup every day? What might be going on inside as a result? Horrors!
To avoid the nasties, you have got to pay attention not only to what goes into your mouth, but also what goes onto your skin.
For many women, it is a natural desire to want to “use stuff”; to improve your skin and delay the effects of ageing. Natural body care, devoid of all the baddies, can do that, by focusing on the long-term benefits instead of only the short-term.
Natural body care and cosmetics benefit your skin in this way:
- They contain no bad chemicals, irritants, or preservatives that harm your body.
- They are not allergenic and contain only natural, and often organic ingredients.
- Very importantly, natural products are never tested on animals (no beauty with cruelty in these babies).
And there are more benefits too, like this one: a study conducted stated that natural body care can help treat hyper-pigmentation and inflammation, and another suggested that it can help with photo-aging (skin damage over time, due to sun exposure).
Go for natural body care and makeup, because, by choosing natural products, you really are (in the words of a world leader’s beauty brand tagline) showing yourself, “you’re worth it”.
