Many people believe that if they are not ingesting a product, it cannot harm them internally. This simply is not the case. Skin care product ingredients are monitored by the FDA, but it is a known fact that the very products we use to put on our skin, hair, or on our nails can be filled with chemicals and toxins that are extremely harmful, both internally (through the pores or skin abrasions and cuts) and externally, causing skin irritations and break outs. Just so you are aware, some of the more harmful and toxic ingredients are; alcohol, mercury, and ammonium laureth sulfate.
There is also a belief that all-natural, exotic, and organic skincare products are more expensive, or just unaffordable for some. This too could not be further from the truth. Have you ever heard that when you begin to eat more natural, easily digestible, whole, and organic foods, you don’t have as many cravings or feel as hungry because your body accepts these foods, and they are so much more easily digested that your body will respond more positively.
Eating processed foods with chemicals, sugars, carbohydrates, and other toxic additives that don’t allow your body to feel satiated and send your brain the message that you are severely hungry and need to eat more of the same, only exacerbates the issue of having to buy more food so that you can eat more often. Conversely, when you are eating all-natural, whole foods, your body feels satiated and satisfied, you will feel less hungry when you are not ingesting processed, chemical-based, sugar-filled foods. Therefore, you can eat much less food which means spending much less money at the grocery store, or for sugary snacks throughout the day.
The same is true for your skin when you switch to all-natural, organic, skincare products made from natural sources and places like the Amazon forest in South America , where nature has learned to preserve, heal, and maintain order for hundreds of years. There may be some products that are more expensive, but the whole idea about using these high-quality skincare products is that you don’t have to use as much, and when a little bit goes a long way because your skin is being “fed” ingredients that causes it to respond more positively, you don’t have to purchase the product as often as the alternative. In which case, you could potentially end up saving money.
In addition to the obvious personal health benefits of using all-natural skincare products, one must consider the positive effects on the environment. Consider using sunscreen lotion that is laced with toxic chemicals and swimming around in the ocean? What if there were 100 other people doing the same? Can you imagine the effects on the wildlife and the fish? The same is true when we shower or clean our bodies – the toxins go straight down the drain and into the ecosystem wreaking havoc on our natural environment.
There are so many reasons to go all-natural! One of the most inspiring would be that, aside from all of the negative side effects listed above, it actually makes your skin feel better, fresher, tighter, moisturized, and cleaner than those “other” products. Just to name a few benefits!
