When I was young, broke and didn’t know any better, I’d smother the cheapest store-bought skin care products on my face, never thinking for a split second about what was actually IN them. Nice packaging? Great commercial? They were probably good enough.
Growing up during the height of a processed food nation, it would take a rare mind to stop and think, “Hmm … what’s in this stuff?” Should I actually read the label? And even if I do, do I know what these ingredients are, let alone how to pronounce them?
In other words, I stayed uneducated and oblivious, taking things as they were — until, as an adult, my health became compromised on numerous levels. You name it. I suffered from it.
But once I started learning the real deal about health, I had to go into complete overhaul. Let’s face it, you can’t just change one or two little habits and think your life will transform.
I was waking up. I was making a conscious effort to take my health seriously. I had one body, one life, and I was ready to take control.
That meant I needed to make quality and conscious decisions about not only what I was going to eat, who I was going to spend time with, what products I was going to clean my house with, and for gawd’s sake, what I was going to put on my skin. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and absorbs more than 80% of what we put on it. So if you’re putting toxins on it, you’re making yourself toxic! EEEK!
Going organic is not just a fad. It’s not something you subscribe to because you want to appear and look ‘cool.’
Organic means safe, and that’s the bottom line.
I choose to switch to a gluten-free, vegan, 100% organic, non-GMO skin care line. You can bet once I was in the know, there was no way anything toxic was going to enter this body of mine!
You can nourish your skin, fight the signs of aging, and glow by doing the same. If you're on the fence, try it for yourself. I know you’ll become a believer too.
