Organic Skin Care
From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, how many beauty products do you use??? We constantly use products on our bodies without a thought about what they are made of and the consequences they may have on our health.
We all know the saying "You are what you eat."...but what people tend to overlook is you also are what you put on your skin.
So, what exactly are these products made of? Carcinogens? Parabens? Artificial Fragrance? It's scary! Skin is the largest organ of our body. It must be treated with sheer kindness. Whatever we apply to our skin has direct access to our bloodstream. These products filled with artificial, toxic, GMO can lead to many health issues.
Similarly to reading food labels, this commitment needs to extend to all our skin product labels too. Basically, if you can't pronounce it or the list is too long...Put it back on shelf!
Top toxins to look for: parabens, formaldehyde, fragrance, propylene glycol, coal tar dyes, talc, mineral oil, aluminum zirconium, sodium laureate, BHA & BHT.
There are plenty of clean, healthy alternatives that will have you forgetting those once loved products you use (or used to use).
For starters, look for certified organic, natural brands. When in doubt about a product, swap it out! Secondly, don't overwhelm yourself with buying everything new all at once. Use(or finish ?) up products you already have and purchase a new, clean version when you run out. Conveniently, these days you can find clean products everywhere from @wholefoodsmarket to @target. If you ever have question about a certain product...I LOVE to use @thinkdirtyapp! It allows you to scan a product and gives you a rating on how toxic it is. This simple step will help you decide whether it's worthy for your use or not in just seconds!
This is your body...this is your future...make a conscious choice to change to organic skincare and cosmetics today!
