The Skin: Nourishing your largest organ naturally
Your skin... It's the largest organ of the human body and yet it's one of the most mistreated.
Your SKIN is the very "outer layer" of who you are.
Not only is your skin exposed to outside forces every single day, most people don't realise that it's the most vital organ for eliminating toxins...so you need to take care of it as best you can.
One of the "controllable" aspects of skin care revolves around what we actually choose to put ON our skin on a daily basis.
For many folks, a new moisturiser, body scrub, lip balm or body spray makes them look and feel good - but most of us give no thought to what's actually in those products, not realising that they're actually adding toxicity into the body.
The history of cosmetics spans at least 6,000 years of human history and almost every society on earth uses them in some form - women AND men!
It's freaky to know that there are more than 10,000 ingredients approved for use in cosmetics and personal care items but more than 90% have never been tested for their effects on human health.
And of the chemicals that have been tested, many have been linked to a number of health problems from allergies and skin sensitivity to more serious hormonal disturbances, fertility problems and even cancer.
And ladies? Well, it's estimated that the average woman’s daily grooming and make-up routine results in a shocking 515 different synthetic chemicals on her body every single day.
It's exactly why my family and I went to the trouble of putting together a small line of organic, handcrafted personal care products based on recipes I found from ancient cultures when searching for "Pulse"!
So What Can We Do?
The answer is simple.
By using plant-based oils, vegetable extracts and salts from nature you can have everything you need to have beautiful, soft, healthy-looking skin.
Those that know me know my mantra: If you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin. It really is amazing how much better you actually feel when you go for simple plant-based products rather than the expensive, chemical-laden ones.
I know how difficult it can be to find the right stuff in stores, which is exactly why I went to the trouble of putting together a small line of personal care items myself, using only non-toxic, nature-made ingredients. I want people to experience it for themselves.
So next time you go to apply a moisturiser, a lip balm or any personal care item, I want you to ask yourself - would I eat this?
