Natural Beauty & Personal Care For Optimal Health
In my opinion, natural beauty and personal care doesn’t get enough attention when it comes to optimal health. We think a lot about what we eat, but what about what we put on our skin?
My motto is if you can’t eat it, you shouldn’t be putting it on your skin.
Chemicals from shampoos, deodorants, perfumes and many other items get into the bloodstream from the skin. Many of these are known carcinogens (cancer causing). Just think about how a nicotine patch works, right? By placing it on your skin the nicotine enters into your bloodstream.
Keeping our skin clean is super important. When all our pores are open we can excrete up to 2kg of waste material from our skin. Really? Yes!
But for most of us this simply isn’t the case, our pores are blocked from the skin products we are using. Ingredients like petrochemicals can block pores, resulting in pimples and irritations. Regular soap doesn’t have the ability to really deep clean the skin and just works on the surface.
Naturally Deep Clean Your Skin To Unblock Pores
But don’t worry, I have the answer for both cleaning skin and for natural personal care products.
For an ultimate deep skin clean check out this article on Guasha (gwa-sha). It’ll clean your skin like nothing else and you’ll be glowing.
Bentonite Clay is another favourite for drawing out skin impurities. Adding water activates the clay which has a negative charge whereas the toxins have a positive charge, so they attract each other. As the bentonite clay pulls out toxins from the cells it helps get oxygen in. It’s so perfect, it’s an absolute winner.
Natural Personal Care Products That Are Chemical Free
Ok so when it comes to natural personal care, I think deodorant is one of the first things to look at. I mean firstly, why is it that we smell? I can show you how to remove body odour naturally, and make your own deodorant. Secondly, anti-perspirants are linked to breast cancer.
Skin conditions are one of the major reasons we apply products to our skin. But the ULTIMATE way to clear up ANY skin condition is juice fasting (this has been proven in fasting studies by the University of Chicago).
Nothing is better.
Ok so I’ve got you covered. There are some other great articles to help inspire and educate you about natural beauty and personal care.
Of course the best way to achieve natural beauty and be glowing is to clean your body. A 4 Day Colon Cleanse is for sure the number one thing you can do to clean our your body, followed by a juice cleanse.
I’m sharing so much information here, to show you that natural beauty really is all down to following a simple healthy lifestyle.
