Understanding the Importance of Natural Skincare

unduhan (41)With so many skincare products on the market today, how can you determine which ones are the best for your skin? You can easily narrow down your choices by making an effort to use only all-natural products. By understanding the importance of natural skincare, you will be able to see just how beneficial natural products are when compared to their chemical-laden counterparts.

According to The National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health, there are over 800 toxic ingredients being added to skincare products every day. 300 of those were proven to cause developmental abnormalities, while over 700 were shown to produce acute toxic effects. Many of these toxins contain particulates that are so small; they can be absorbed by the brain and body 3 times more quickly than water.

Skincare products that contain all-natural ingredients are designed to complement your skin’s sophisticated system. The skin has a remarkable ability to heal and maintain itself, but only when it is given the proper nutrients. Because the skin is the largest bodily organ, it can absorb any and everything you apply to it directly into the bloodstream. Even though you may follow a healthy diet, applying skincare products that contain known toxins can affect your health in detrimental ways, causing you to become ill.

There are numerous studies that have proven the link between illness and synthetic chemicals. Using skincare products that contain synthetics can result in headaches, disrupted hormone levels, breathing disorders, and even cancer. With so many dangers associated with synthetics, why would anyone want to use products that contain them?

There is a simple answer: because they provide instant gratification. Many chemical-based skincare products can instantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and even fade sunspots, but they do so through dangerous means. These products starve the skin of oxygen, and increase photo-sensitivity (makes the skin sensitive to the sunlight). Year’s later, extensive use of these products can increase the risk of sunspots and cause premature aging: the very things the products were designed to prevent.

Even though chemical-based products have been tested and proven to be ‘safe’, they can still cause harm. A product can be labeled as ‘non-toxic’ if 50% or less of lab animals it was tested on died within 2 weeks. Children’s shampoos that are labeled as a ‘no tears’ formula contain anesthetics to numb the burning sensation the eyes would experience with normal shampoo.

Many body lotions also contain dangerous chemicals, such as artificial fragrances and colors. They may also contain ingredients such as mineral oils and parabens that can clog the skin’s pores and cause breakouts. Natural skincare products allow the skin to breathe, which will help prevent acne, rashes, and other irritations.

To ensure your skin receives proper nourishment without harmful chemicals, only use products that contain plant-derived ingredients and are free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Products that state they contain the extracts of organically-grown ingredients are the best choice for proper skincare. By paying close attention to the products you apply to your skin, you can keep it at its healthiest and allow it to look younger for longer.

 

Tips for Finding the Best Moisturizer By Skin Type

A product can be designed for a certain skin type but if it doesn’t have pure ingredients, it could cause more harm than good.

The Dangers in Chemical Based Cosmetics

unduhan (39)Many cosmetics contain dangerous chemical ingredients that can cause damage much deeper than just skin level. The cosmetics industry adds synthetic chemicals to anything from shaving cream to body lotion to lipstick. Many of these ingredients are the same ones that can be found in products used to stabilize pesticides and clean industrial equipment. You may think that it would be illegal to include such dangerous ingredients in cosmetics that are sold to the public, but major loopholes in federal laws allows the practice to continue, despite these ingredients being linked to birth defects, infertility, and even cancer.

Many individuals do not thoroughly understand the dangers in chemical based cosmetics, and never give a second thought to what they may be applying to their skin. Remember, the skin is the largest bodily organ. Whatever is applied to it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. The continuous use of chemical based cosmetics has been linked to numerous adverse health effects, yet most people continue to use them without realizing just how dangerous they really are.

Below, we will discuss a few of the most-used chemicals in cosmetics, and how they affect your health.

Lead

Lead has been found in over 650 various cosmetics, including lipstick, nail polish, bleaching toothpaste, foundation and sunscreen. Lead is a known neurotoxin that has been linked to behavioral problems, speech delays, and learning disabilities in children. It has been shown to delay puberty in girls and reduce the fertility of both men and women.

Ethylene Oxide

Ethylene oxide is a chemical substance that is traditionally used to sterilize surgical instruments. Because it has been shown to buffer the effects of sudsing agents, trace amounts of it can be found in body washes, shampoos and facial cleansers. According to the National Toxicology Program, is it also classified as a carcinogen?

Parabens

Parabens are one of the most commonly found chemicals in chemical-based cosmetics. They are used in deodorants, creams, lotions, and ointments as a type of preservative. They are very easily absorbed by the skin, making them one of the most dangerous chemical ingredients known. In fact, they have even been identified in samples of breast tumors.

Phthalates

Phthalates are chemicals found in synthetic fragrances (such as scented body sprays) and nail polish which have been shown to disrupt the endocrine system. This can cause girls to experience puberty early, which increases their risk of developing breast cancer later in life.

Triclosan

Triclosan is a popular chemical used extensively in toothpastes, deodorants, and liquid antibacterial soaps to prevent the growth of mold. This chemical is technically classified as a pesticide. Studies have shown that using products that contain this chemical can disrupt thyroid function and hinder normal breast development. Many hand sanitizers also contain triclosan, and have been proven to contribute to bacterial resistance.

Although most cosmetics contain some form of chemical, there is something you can do to avoid using them. Make sure the cosmetics you use contain only natural ingredients, preferably harvested from organically grown and GMO-free sources. What you put IN your body is important for optimal health, but what you put ON your body is just as important.
