The online Dictionary defines food as: ‘Any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth.What we need to note is that food can be ingested into the body by other means besides the mouth. Our bodies can be fed through the pores of our skin. Today, a lot of drugs and medicines are given through transdermal skin patches such as Nicotine patches. This method of medication has proven to be 95% more effective than oral medication.
Many chemicals in cosmetics slowly poison us thorough repeated use. Our bodies absorb directly into the bloodstream close to 60% of the topical products that our skin comes into contact with.
Every year our bodies absorb 2 kilograms of chemicals from chemicals found in skincare and hair products and studies have shown that babies are born with 200 chemicals already in their bloodstream.We cannot afford to live in ignorance anymore – we really should be in control of what is in our skincare products.
Ideally, our skincare products should be free from synthetic chemicals and harmful ingredients.
It’s important that we take the time to read the ingredients of any product that goes on our skin as it eventually ends up in our blood stream. The way you read the nutritional contents of your food items when you go grocery shopping is what is expected when shopping for skincare products. Educate yourself on the ingredients contained in these products.The best way to stay toxin free in your skincare regime is to make your skincare products yourself. Nothing beats knowing what’s going on your skin. Just as it’s good to be in control of what you eat, it’s also good to be in control of what goes on your skin. FEED YOUR SKIN FROM NATURES GOODNESS!
