Listened to a powerful podcast today about toxins in our environment and how it can affect miscarriages, birth defects, child hood diseases and allergies, global warming, animals, our bodies cells... the list goes on and on.
Toxins are EVERY WHERE.
In processed foods, carbon dioxide, ammonia, parabens, talcum powder... on and on!! Especially in your cosmetics and skincare.
It only takes 26 seconds for what you apply on your skin to be absorbed into your bloodstream.
Below is a list of items used daily that we should not only be investing in, but be informed and educated about what is in them. What chemicals are you putting on your new born? The skin absorbs everything that's put on it including, shampoos, hand creams and soaps.
Top products to look for cleanest ingredients:
- Anything you soak in (ie bubble bath)
- Anything you apply and do not wash off, such as lotion, face and body creams, and oils
- Body powder
- Shampoo and conditioner (which is a wash off, but has high exposure due to where you use it and the way it “washes” over your entire body)
- Any product you put on your child
We often can't choose the toxins we avoid, but we can choose the type of skin care, makeup and foods we put in our mouth and on our bodies. Be informed - this stuff is legitimately SCARY.
