Lately, I’ve been looking at the ingredients in my favorite skincare products which I’m using every day, and I was quite surprised to see so many different chemicals with unpronounceable names and with unknown benefits for the skin. I’ve always looked at the ingredients in my food: cutting back on processed and refined foods in favor of whole foods. But what am I washing my hair with? What is contained in the day cream that I’m using every day? What chemicals am I applying to my body through my body lotion?
When it comes to personal care products, many of us are unaware of the chemicals that we slather over our skin through beauty products. The truth is that not all ingredients are “clean” and some are actually slowly poisoning our bodies, speeding up the aging process and even causing cancer.
What we put on our skin should be as clean as what we eat.
But for most people, it’s not.
