Did you know that 60%* of what you put onto your skin goes into your body?
More than ever we are aware of what we are putting into our bodies. There has been a huge shift towards eating cleaner diets which are protein rich and full of organic fresh vegetables and healthy fats. The application of this nutritional knowledge is applied to gain results; building muscle, trimming fat and helping to keep your body in peak condition.
The same should apply for your skincare. What goes into your skincare is absorbed through the skin, and will end up going into your body. Recent reports show that this can reach levels of between 60% and 70% absorption. The ingredients within the skincare you use can have a huge beneficial effect on your body and your overall health.
Many brands claim to be ‘green’ but the only way to really tell is to turn the product over (as you would food) and read the ingredients list. Here’s the top nasties to look out for and avoid, and also some good things to look for.
TOP FIVE TO AVOID
- Petrol chemicals, mineral oils (derived from Petroleum..yes you probably have accidentally put petrol on your face at some point in your life)
- Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
- Synthetic fragrance
TOP FIVE TO INCLUDE
- Organic Superfoods such as Acai, Pomegranate and Avocado
- Powerful Antioxidants such as Sea Buckthorn, Mountain Pepper and Jojoba
- Vitamins A, C and E
- Marine Botanicals
- Natural Proteins
