As I continue my research and education on skin care I came across a myriad of reasons why everyone should make a concerted effort to care for their skin. The skin is, after all, the largest organ on the human body and it also absorbs everything you put on it into your blood stream. What you put on your skin largely contributes to the level of toxins in your blood, thus possibly having an impact on your health. This is terribly alarming.
At risk of going off topic, I strongly recommend you do research on the amount of toxins you are exposed to daily and the possible adverse effects of products you use on your skin like lotions, makeup, hair dye, after shave, perfumes and of course body soaps. Soaps comprised of chemicals essentially defeat the purpose of cleaning the body if they are effectively contaminating your blood stream.
So… what do we do about it?
I’ve long since gone organic after reading countless articles and studies that support the claim we are unwittingly absorbing toxins into our blood stream every day. Aside from Witch Hazel, and Coconut Oil.. I have become a huge fan of olive oil. Olive oil has many healthy benefits to your skin. It has many uses aside from cooking with it. Some of the major beneficial properties include healthier skin and anti-aging properties. Organic olive oil based skin products really make a difference and it’s also very good for hydrating the skin and removing make up. It is also sensitive skin friendly.
I tend to be on the go with a life mantra of “there aren’t enough hours in the day.” It is quite important to make sure I make the most out of my daily routine. It makes perfect sense to incorporate an organic skin product with an active ingredient that has multiple uses.
Removes dirt and makeup without over stripping the face causing break outs
Sensitive skin friendly
Positive effects on blood stream if it sinks into the skin – even better
Repairs and maintains skin health
You’re winning all around if you can get these benefits out of one product – particularly soap. I prefer all natural handmade products with ingredients that are beneficial to over all health which is why I am taken with Love You Olive Oil Soap. Aside from being made from love, you’ll be loving your skin by cleansing it with ingredients that promote health rather than contributing more toxins to your body thus compromising your health.
