“As much as 60% of the topical skin-care products that people use now a days are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream,” says Dr. Nancy Lonsdrof, M.D. “They should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal.” There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders.
So there’s our problem….now how do we solve it? *By using skin/hair/body care lines that are free of these chemicals and toxins.
Are those kind of lines out there-do they exist? *Yes!!
Are they affordable? *Yes! Yay!!
Beyond that from a personal experience I can share with you how much my skin improved once I started using these pure skin care lines. It’s obviously not the only contributor to my skin improving as I also changed my diet and many other things that you can read about in my other blog posts and vids BUT this was a huge component of the changes in my skin and hair. One example is that I used to get blackheads on a regular basis and thought it was normal to have them all the time. Now I almost never have them anymore unless I eat like a whole pie of pizza in one night which might or might not have occurred once or twice or ten times or so….but anyway, you get my drift. Another important point: there are many places like whole foods that sell skin care lines, shampoos ect. that claim they are all organic, natural ect. which compared to the below recommended products are not worthy of your beautiful skin or your money. I for one know that I get nothing out of sharing this with you except the shear joy of knowing that you might start using products that are healing for your body, mind and spirit. Espavo!
So where can we buy them?
*Online. Here they are by Order of Personal Preference:
Living Libations If there was a skin care line that people use in heaven…this would be it! Every one of their products that I’ve used so far has been one of pure bliss! They have everything under the sun when it comes to hair, skin & body care including face creams, makeup, shampoos and even dental care! There is also a surprising and delightful poetic description about each product which shows the immense amount of energy and passion that is transmitted into this goodness. Obsessed am I? Totally! I especially love their dental care products, Underarm Charm deodorants, MaidenFern Blushing Balm, Ruby Juice Lover Lips, Everybody Loves the Sunshine sun screen, RoseGlow face creme, Maverick face creme, Seabuckthorn shampoo, Shine On Hair conditioner, and Lavender Essential Oil which I put in my bath, smoothie and raw chocolate treats!
Live-Live is a small store in the east village that carries the latest and purest organic products out there. The owners sell their own amazing natural skin care products. I highly recommend the “Bee Yummy Skin Food” face & body cream and the “Herbal Shampoo” which I also use as a face & body wash.
Pratima Ayurvedic Skincare The ingredients are all natural with Ayurvedic herbs.
Ascended Health Their products are amazing. They also include spiritual blessings from various traditions like kabbalah and native american. I love their dental products and their sufi bliss oil.
Morrocco Method They have great soaps, natural hair dye, natural eye liner ect.
Terressentials Their lines are 100% organic & natural and you can purchase samples of pretty much everything they sell. Their products are relatively affordable and you don’t have to worry about what you’re putting on your skin! I especially love their “Flower Therapy” toner, “Seductive Spice” body oil and “Lovin Lavender” hand soap!
ISUN Skincare What I like about this line is that some of the products contain gemstones.
100 Percent Pure has a great and affordable make up line. I especially love their eyeliners and mascara where they use black tea and other all natural products in their ingredients.
Crema de Cacao Pure & Delicious!
Futurenatural They have a large selection of natural and organic beauty products. I especially love their Alaska Glacial Mud. I remember how special the mud at the glaciers in Alaska was when I put some on my hand.
Bee Georgous Organics So simple and pure-godda love it!
Golden Path Alchemy Holistic herbal skin care with some unique ingredients.
Tata Harper Skin Care Sophisticated, conscious, and 100% natural products.
