October’s wellness event at Whole Body Fitness located in Brookville, Ohio
will be discussing toxin free beauty care and will be presented by our Yoga instructor Danielle.
Danielle states,”I believe that God created our earth and our bodies to coexist together in a specific way that He designed. Our modern world has strayed far from this, and in turn our bodies are struggling to adapt.
If we lessen the processed foods we eat and the products we use containing toxins not meant for our bodies to absorb, we will be allowing our bodies to do what they already know how to do – thrive!
The mind, body, and spirit are all connected and we must take care of each part.”.
Benefits of using chemical free skin care products
[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″ center=”no” class=””] When looking for true chemical free skin care products you must read the ingredients. Just because the label says “natural and organic, but not all natural products are organic, or even 100 percent natural.”. According to an article, “Benefits of Using Organic and Natural Skincare” written by Brianne Nemiroff , “Major brands are catching on to the fact to that consumers want natural and organic skincare. Without even changing the formulas, many are slapping a “natural” or “organic” sticker when it’s not. If it says “natural,” read the label fully. If it says “organic,” make sure it’s labeled USDA certified organic. While major corporations may want you to stick to the brands you’ve always been exposed to in magazines and on television, it’s time to treat your body with respect by switching to what it really needs: natural and organic skincare.”. The term organic means “If the product is USDA certified organic, that means it is made of 95 percent or more of organic ingredients derived from plant sources (See Documents). All of these ingredients were grown without pesticides, bioengineered genes, or petroleum-based fertilizers, which could be toxic to the environment. Also, these ingredients were farmed using organic farming methods that recycle sources and promote biodiversity. Natural products are simply derived from natural sources without added synthetic compounds.” [/su_column]

When products are made naturally and organically they will smell better, like they were meant to. ‘Keep an eye out for chemicals that act as a fragrance such as limonene, a liquid that gives off an orange-like smell.”. Another way you benefit from going the organic route is your skin will be softer. “Did you know that many drugstore and luxury brands add drying agents to products such as moisturizers, lip balm, and conditioner? If you actually want your products to moisturize, make sure they say “sulfate-free.”. Your skin might clear up. “The reason this is a “might” is because everyone’s tolerance varies for different ingredients, both natural and unnatural. You might break out using only toxic makeup and switching to organic makeup might be your cure.”.
