Perfume, lotion, shampoo, face wash, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, makeup, hair spray. Holy shnikeys, we put a lot on our body! Even if you’re the simplest of ladies or gents, chances are you use at least a few of these items. Look at the ingredients list of each item you use. Do you know what each ingredient is? Or do we have to find a chemical-specialist to translate? All these ingredients are being absorbed into our skin (or even inhaled or ingested), influencing our internal system and health.
Good rule of thumb: go as natural as you can and know what you’re slathering onto your skin or dabbing onto your lips. Chemicals aren’t very tasty. As Jimmy Fallon so eloquently says, “Ew!”
