Is Your Skincare Toxic?
Your skin is your biggest route of elimination - and absorption!
People generally understand the concept: “You are what you eat,” but what many don’t realize is how quickly what goes on your skin gets absorbed, and much of that enters the bloodstream. So, no, beauty is not skin deep. It goes much, much deeper than that.
Are you adding toxins into your body with your skincare?
Your body is already overloaded with more toxins than it was designed to handle. We’re exposed to thousands of chemicals that literally didn’t exist only 100 years ago. We should avoid adding to that already heavy toxic burden.
That’s why I’ve not only curated products that are nontoxic, but also truly beautiful and effective. Here are some of my favorites, but be sure to look around and see what you’re drawn to.
Bella Fiore Organic Med Spa’s Rosehip Kelp Antioxidant Face Cream. Formulated with ingredients like the anti-inflammatory ashwagandha, ethically harvested sea kelp, certified herbicide and pesticide-free clove, and certified organic rosehips (among others), our face cream promotes complete tissue restoration, has potent antioxidants, and helps support a healthy immune system.
This especially targets sun damage, age spots and wrinkles, promoting a youthful, radiant complexion. This is Bella Fiore’s Signature Cream.
ISUN Lavender-Sage Facial Cleansing Gelé- Lovingly created with this hydrating cleansing gele, it is based in organic aloe vera juice infused with purifying and skin soothing herbs. The natural, fresh herbal aroma of lavender, sage and lemon tea essential oils helps awaken your skin and senses as you cleanse.
Created by the founder of ISUN, the designer is my recent podcast guest Bunnie Gulick. Bunnie has a formal background in clinical nutrition and was self-educated and mentored in botanical chemistry specializing in skincare.
ISUN Revive Eye Gel- Did you know the skin around the eyes is thinner and much more sensitive than the rest of your facial skin? Lacking in sebaceous glands, collagen and elastin fibers, and truly under constant strain and use, this area of your face requires a little special attention.
The first signs of aging are readily seen because this skin is so delicate. Reduce visible signs of aging and minimize the appearance of puffiness and dark circles with this oil-free, soothing eye gel, based in a hydrating hyaluronic acid and aloe vera gel solution with age-defying concentrated herb extracts, probiotics, and a powerful oxygen-boosting yeast ferment.
