When you start becoming aware of what you’re putting into your body, you’ll eventually start thinking about what you are putting on your body as well. And then, bit by bit, it trickles down to everything you use in your house like the cleaning products you use and type of bed sheets you sleep in. At least that’s what happened to me. The more I learnt, the bigger my eyes grew in disbelief. How can we be exposing ourselves to all these unpronounaceable ingredients and not know about it!? I was baffled.
I don’t want to overload you with facts about why you should make the switch to healthier skin products, but I do want to point out this super powerful piece of information that really got under my skin (no pin intended) when I first heard it. Most of us know that the skin is our largest organ. But did you know that 60-90% of all products that you put on your skin actually end up in your blood stream? Up to 90%! Mind. Blown.
Once you learn this, you can’t un-learn it.
And so I decided it was time to cut the crap and start healthy-fying my home. Luckily Phil and I were just about to move to Australia at the time , so I had the chance to start from scratch and only bring products into my home that I had consciously thought about and researched.
|What you put on your skin is just as important as what you eat and should be just as nourishing. And each and every day we make choices which impact our health and happiness, as well as that of the planet.|
I’m really enjoying my journey toward a toxin free existence, and have become increasingly passionate about sharing my knowledge with others. Whenever someone asks me what products I use – I am more than happy to share because I hope it will raise the collective awareness of healthier, more natural and more sustainable alternatives. In the end we all vote with our money, and the more people make the switch, the better it will be for everyone’s health and the health for our planet.
