Natural Skin Care Ingredients To Be Aware Of
The food we eat and the beauty products we use greatly affect our outward appearance. It is a fact
that like our food supply most of our beauty products are full of toxins, preservatives, and even
Most of the beauty products you see on TV and in magazines are targeted towards us to make us
think we need their product to look younger, sexier, and skinnier. These products actually age us
because of all the poisons, toxins and preservatives in the product!
Even some natural products contain hidden toxins and preservatives so it is important to read labels
carefully. Go to your local health foods store and purchase products that are certified organic.
Read Your Labels:
If your shampoo, conditioner, soap, face wash, deodorant, make-up, shaving cream or lotions contain
any of these ingredients, ditch them immediately:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: Literally a poison that causes eye irritation, scalp irritation, and tangled hair.
Parabens: (methyl, butyl, propyl, and ethyl): These preservatives are a group of chemicals widely
used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries that are linked to breast
cancer! The E.P.A. has found that they interfere with your body's endocrine system: your
hypothalamus, your ovaries, and your thyroid
Propylene/Butylene Glycol: The main ingredient in antifreeze. Need more be said?
Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea: Preservatives used in cosmetics that release formaldehyde
and cause dermatitis.
Synthetic Colors and Dyes: Cancer-causing toxins that often lead to skin allergies, and a whole other
host of problems. Most dyes are not regulated by the government and many have been linked to
allergic reactions, skin rashes, hyperactivity and asthma.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids: Popular skin exfoliating acids which compromise the skins protective functions
and possibly even alter the natural biorhythms of the skin with long term use.
Diethanolamine/Triethanolamine: Causes dryness of hair and skin, and when mixed with certain
chemicals, becomes carcinogenic.
Give your Makeup A Makeover!
Toxins exit our bodies through our skin. Lotions and powders may soften the skin temporarily, but
they actually end up inhibiting the health of our skin by weighing it down and causing it to sag and
Anything we put on our skin is absorbed right into our body. This goes for our makeup too. You want
to be sure your makeup is free and mineral-based of preservatives, dyes and chemicals. Chemicals in
your makeup not only go directly into your bloodstream but also clog your pores and cause your skin
to age prematurely.
Choose all-natural mineral-based makeup. Mineral-based makeup contains all natural elements from
the earth broken down into tiny particles so it can be easily absorbed into our skin. These natural
minerals contain skin-healing properties and give us that natural "glow.".
Spare Your Hair:.
Typical hair shampoos and conditioners are full of toxic chemicals and preservatives. Celebrity
stylist Chaz Dean says using regular shampoos on your hair is like using laundry detergent on your
hair. "And what happens when you use laundry detergent to wash your clothes? The fabrics break
down and fall apart. Your hair is doing the same thing. These harsh detergents are stripping your
hair, robbing your hair and it's becoming finer, thinner and weaker. So it's not you, it's what you
have been doing to your hair.".
Again, read your labels. Buy only certified organic hair products and you can reclaim those lustrous
