Did you know that common beauty products are full of harmful toxins?
On a daily basis, millions of people around the world use body wash, soap, shampoo, perfume, foundation, mascara, moisturiser, lip balm, fake tan, hair spray, gel and so on. These products are commonly filled with harsh toxins and chemicals such as parabens, diethanolamine (DEA), talc, polyethylene glycols (PEGs), petroleum, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), aluminium and phthalates. Some of these chemicals mimic hormones in the body leading to endocrine disruption, some are carcinogenic, have been linked to infertility or have been associated with liver and kidney failure, migraines, respiratory issues, dermatitis and mood disorders.
Your skin is the largest organ of the body and every single product you apply to it is directly absorbed into the blood stream. Every chemical within each and every product, entering your body and wreaking havoc. How many products do you use on a daily basis? Read the backs of all the labels and think about how many chemicals you are absorbing. Your liver uses your skin as a major pathway for removing toxins from the body. It is not in your best interest to be clogging up all your pores with chemicals. Look for natural beauty/ personal care products that are free from the harmful ingredients, or better yet- go without. Give your body the best chance possible to be healthy. If you have been using a beauty regime like the one mentioned above, you would benefit from a detox, such as the Dr Cabot 15 Day Cleanse to clear out stored toxins and heavy metals. Ultimate Superfood powder and Ultimate Gut Health powder can be taken long term to support your liver and gut in getting rid of these toxins on a daily basis.
