The outer beauty is just a reflection for the inner health, you can know if someone is healthy and well nourished by checking the state of their skin, eyes and hair. But while you may be trying too hard to maintain a good health by eating healthy foods, you could be loading your skin with hazardous toxins and chemicals promoted to be natural and good for skin.
Unfortunately most of the regular beauty care products most of us use on daily basis are loaded with chemicals that toxify our bodies over time.
Luckily there are natural great products that can substitute our conventional beauty care products, they even cost less and work just as good or better with no side effects or risks.
Here’s a list of the beauty-care products you can rule out of your daily uses and their natural substitutes.
1- Antiperspirants and Deodorants.
Antiperspirant and deodorants are of the worst thing to use directly on your skin and unfortunately all of us use such products multiple times a day.
Doctors a researchers found a significant link between the regular use of such products and the increased risk of developing breast cancer.
It was reported that women who develop breast cancer start with tumors near their armpits area then the situation evolve.
Not to mention that antiperspirant contain aluminum and seal your body’s natural way to eliminate toxins through sweating.
Fortunately there are great natural ways to substitute deodorants and antiperspirant.
Baking soda and lemon juice are great effective substitutes to make you smelling fresh all day, you can either use lemon juice or baking soda each by itself or add some coconut oil to the baking soda to make it less messy if you want to wear black tops.
The coconut oil can even boost the hours you can stay fresh for because it is antifungal and antibacterial, indeed the health benefits of these natural ingredients go beyond just keeping you smelling fresh.
Lotions too can be eliminated of your life immediately, even what is promoted to be natural lotions contain harmful chemicals that get absorbed by the skin and stored within the fat tissue. All that increase the toxins in your body over time and can even lead to skin aging signs eventually.
The best natural option for lotions is the coconut oil in it’s unprocessed raw way, or you can even consider chia or coconut butter for people who are prone to eczema and dry skin. Natural aloe vera gel will work great if you have oily skin and even just pure olive oil can nourish and moisturize your skin and hair.
Toothpaste is a must on daily basis and unfortunately most of the brands you can buy from stores contain fluoride which is a chemical strongly linked with many diseases and thyroid cancer in particular. Moreover, most toothpaste also contain sugar which sounds ironic to a product made to fight cavities in the first place.
Even though there are many tooth paste brands now that are fluoride-free, it is always better to stick to nature if we have the alternative.
Natural substitute is baking soda, it may taste a bit salty or bitter but it will do a good job cleaning your teeth and making them white and sparkling. Mix the baking soda with peppermint liquid Castile soap to form a thick paste that you can put on your tooth brush and brush your teeth.
4- Makeup Removal.
The chemical makeup removals contain alcohol which can dry up your skin with frequent use. You can use coconut oil or olive oil to clean your skin from makeup rescue.
Just soak a cotton ball in the oil and wipe your skin clean of makeup.
This remedy won’t only ensure that your face is clean and less likely to get acne breakouts but will also moisturize your skin.
