Do you really know what is in your beauty and personal care products? Look it up.
Your skin grows from the inside out, so overall nutrition is important. But caring
for your skin is not just an inside job. Your skin plays a major role in your health.
It is our largest organ, and absorbs and excretes nutrients and toxins through its
pores. The condition of your skin is a reflection of just how healthy you are on
Your skin absorbs about 60% of what is put on it, so careful choices are critical.
Most skin care products contain toxic chemical ingredients. You should never put
anything on your skin that you would not put in your mouth. It is scientifically
proven that synthetic chemicals applied to your skin enter your bloodstream. (This
is why many drugs now come in a skin patch.) In fact, it is probably safer to eat
these ingredients than to rub them on your skin. If eaten, your body produces enzymes
to break down toxins (at least until you overload). This does not readily occur
when toxins are absorbed directly through the skin.
Why are harmful ingredients used? Because they are cheap and profitable, readily
available, and the FDA does not regulate beauty and personal care products. This
industry is “self-regulated” by agreement with the FDA, because the FDA does not
have the resources to do it. Mercury, lead, coal tar, known carcinogens and toxins
- about 10,000 chemicals are allowed to be used in personal care products. Check the
ingredients in your products. Do you really want these on your skin? You are best
served by monitoring your own products and using those made of natural substances
you recognize and could even eat. Your skin will reach its pinnacle of health and
beauty. Begin today to achieve a new level of beauty that contributes to, instead
of compromises, your overall health. It really is possible to look and feel good.
