Happy healthy Thursday to you!
Today we want to talk about something very important with you and that is what we put on our skin. That is probably something most of us are doing and maybe not realizing what a big impact it has on our bodies and well-being. We might think we are treating our bodies well but unconsciously – we might not!
Imagine all kind of cosmetics and creams, specially women but also men, are putting everyday on our bodies with the purpose to look good and therefore.. feel better (that is truly the opposite way it should be when we know the glow comes from inside). However, our skin is the biggest organ we have and should be treated with respect! In the end we are only creating a negative spiral when putting toxic on our bodies which make us crave more products to fix the harm the previous products did to us. Our bodies are magnificient and really do the best they can to fix and digest everything we are giving them. Is it not amazing? Not talking about the LOVE our bodies are giving to us.. and how are we treating it back?! If you cannot understand the labels, if there are a too complicated ingredient and you would not eat it – yes then you should probably not put it on your body. It is simple as that but yet if you enter any cosmetic shop you will be bombard with advertisement that one product does miracle to you. It might do – on a outwardly.. but what are you really feeding your body with? Pure toxic! The question is, how long will that superficial glow last when your body from the inside is shrivelled? It might sound like hard words but this is how we find it and it is better to be honest and simply work for a change in this world. We cannot continue to support the big cooperations that are living on selling bad stuff and making the whole world addicted to toxins and chemicals.
So let us all try to be more conscious with our choices. We are the customers and can whenever we feel for it change our puchase habits! Let´s educate ourselves and each other to live an even better and healthier life. We might not today suffer from our facial creams but time will surely tell.
We are far from perfect yet and looking for substitute all the time. Please feel free to share your tips and tricks on staying healthy in all aspects. But one amazing product we have discovered is coconut cream! It is pure magic and works in so many different areas in life. You can cook with it (eventhough we are not) and make amazing raw cakes. Furthermore, it is the absolute perfect facial- and body cream. Not only smells delicious but truly does wonders for your body and face. You can also use it for your hair. Some use it as a deodorant as well. The options are endless! Make sure to buy organic and get rid of all your chemical creams you might have at home and you are ready to glow 😉
