Think about your daily routine. Do you wash your body, hair, and face? Use lotion? Deodorant? Makeup? I’m thinking yes to most, if not all, of those.
But what a lot of people don’t think about (including me, sometimes) is that all of these substances are absorbed into your skin and all of the toxins in them culminate in your body. Have you ever heard of a lidocaine/analgesic cream, motion sickness patch, birth control patch, or a nicotine patch? They work by passing a medicine through the skin and entering the blood stream to cause a given effect.
Although I admittedly do not make all of my own beauty products, I do condition my hair with coconut oil (in each shower), do oil pulling on my teeth (when I remember), and make my own deodorant. If you’re curious about the products you use, try: The Skin Deep Database.
I have very sensitive skin, so I have to be aware of what I am putting on it, and I would LOVE to be able to make more of my own beauty products. That’s why I’m so excited to be hosting this Natural Beauty Giveaway with some fabulous bloggers to help you on your DIY Beauty journey!
