I mentioned a little in this post about the importance of not putting toxins on our bodies and I also promised to share all my favourite products with you, soooo here it is! Our skin is our biggest organ and whatever we put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream. That’s why I don’t put anything on my skin that I wouldn’t put into my body; it just makes sense!
When looking for natural products, there are a few things you want to look out for. You always want to check the ingredients and make sure you don’t see anything funky on there. We should avoid parabens, sulfates, fragrances, phthalates, artificial colours, BHA and BHT. These ingredients have been linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, allergies, respiratory irritation among other things! Crazy, right? These ingredients are literally in everything and it’s not common knowledge to everyone that they are harmful. It’s something that I am passionate about because the more we know, the better choices we will make and we will demand better from body care companies so that they can make healthier products for us! You can also check out the EWG Skindeep data base to find out what your favourite products rate on the toxicity scale. You may be surprised!
Thankfully, there are many amazing companies and independent skin care creators that make beautiful, all-natural products that actually work! Here are some of my favourites! Click the links to shop!
