Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.  However, are we putting our selves at risk? Toxic chemicals are showing up in most beauty products.  There is something we can do.

Author Dr Leigh Erin Connealy states, “From the time you wake up through the rest of your day, you should be examining what you’re putting on and in your body.” Dr. Connealy is one of the country’s leading integrative physicians and wrote a book called Cancer Revolution.

Follow these things to help avoid or minimize toxic chemicals in beauty products:

  • Hair Color with Natural Ingredients- Visit salons with natural ingredients and the safest possible hair products. Aveda Hair Color is derived from 96% plants and flowers. Aveda Hair Color has significantly less chemicals and more natural ingredients. Traditional hair color products are often packed with dangerous chemicals. Detoxing and drinking plenty of purified water is recommended after a hair color service.
  • Organic Food- The best way in terms of nutrition is to buy organic. Shopping at local farm markets when possible in ideal. Cancer and other diseases have been linked to toxic ingredients in the foods.  Also in products we use daily on our skin.
  • Drink Purified Water-  Drink at least 20 ounces of purified water upon waking up. Favoring the water with organic lemons is even better.  Everyone should drink plenty of water during the day.  Also, if you have constant exposure to toxic chemicals drink plenty of purified water and detox regularly.
  • Exercise- Keep moving! Exercise causes circulation,  If you don’t move your face doesn’t look good, says Dr Connealy.
  • Epson Salt Baths- Everyone needs time to relax and unwind. Bathing with Epson Salt will help your beauty shine through relaxation and detoxing at the same time.
  • Detoxing- When you detox you will feel better and beauty will shine. Detoxing should be done regularly. Ways to detox include a sauna, liver cleanses, epson salt baths.

The world we live in is a toxic environment. So, eat clean.  Also, use beauty products with natural ingredients.  Following this will help with overall health.
