Education on toxins in body products
During the winter time it is important to moisturize your skin and ensure you increase your fatty acids to decrease dry skin concerns. The best source is to eat them or substitute them with fish oils or cod liver oils. It is also important we get adequate vitamin D. Soaps are drying to the skin and especially the face, because it causes wrinkles to occur. It is important you limit facial cleansers that have soap ingredients. Particularly Sodium laureth sulfate have toxins that have been linked to cancer and other health care problems. It is important to remember that your body absorbs anything placed on the skin. It is also important that we pay attention to skin care products that have preservatives such as Parabens and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), because they have also been linked to breast and prostate cancer. My Body Butter currently has all natural preservatives that include grape seed extract and liquid germall. Anyone who is trying to lose weight will appreciate this last bit of information. Fat cells are released to protect your body from toxins, so the more toxins you expose your body to the more fat cells that will be released. I hope you were able to learn something new about skin care products.
