You sleep 8 hours, exercise, drink green juices, mediate – Basically, you do everything within your power to live a healthy lifestyle.
But…what about the skincare products you apply on your body every single day? Have you ever thought of all the chemicals you’re feeding your skin?
We focus so much on what goes in, but neglect what we put on.
On average, women apply 165 chemicals daily and men apply about 89 per day. Isn’t that insane?
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and it only takes 26 seconds for all those harmful chemicals in our skincare care products to enter the blood stream.
And the bloodstream irrigates every organ, including the gut.
Our gut health is precious. It’s the root cause of everything.
- Are you dealing with acne? Check your gut
- Feeling tired? Check your gut
- Struggling with your weight? Check your gut
- Craving sugars? Check your gut
You get the point, right? Our gut health is gold!
The gut has many important functions that are essential for us to feel like a million bucks, but if it gets compromised we can start experiencing symptoms that can make us feel like crap.
And if you’re saying…”This doesn’t apply to me because my skincare products are organic, vegan, gluten-free and made with magical powders…” then you’ll be surprised to know that those labels don’t mean much and are commonly used as marketing tools.
This is why on today’s video I share:
- How your skincare affects your gut health
- Three common harmful toxins we should avoid like the plague
- The lack of regulations in the Beauty industry
Are you motivated to make a change or at least become more aware of the products you use every day?
If you’re saying YES YES!
Here are a couple of tools to help you make more informed decisions next time you’re in the market for skincare products:
The Environmental Working Group has a large database where you can check the safety of the products you’re using. You can also download their app “Heathy Living.”
Beautycounter is a skincare company that’s revolutionizing the Beauty industry and has eliminated WAY MORE harmful chemicals than the FDA and any other company in USA. It has created The Never List – composed on dangerous ingredients we should all avoid and Beautycounter has promised to never use in any other their products.
If you’d like to learn more about safer options, these are the skincare products I use on a regular basis and recommend to my clients.
Our health is our most precious asset. It’s through this vehicle that we’re able to create memories, help others and make a positive impact in the world. And it’s our responsibility to stay informed and do the best we can to take care of this precious tool.
