The skin is our largest organ and the most visible one too!
Being nice to your skin will make you feel good, look good and even boost self-esteem.
There are many different ways to care for your skin:
- Washing and moisturizing is on the top of this care list.
- Drinking plenty of filtered water throughout the day allows for easier cleansing of impurities to happen.
- Eating a healthy diet will supply your skin with the nutrients it needs to detox and evolve healthily.
- Staying away from harmful chemicals in care products as well as in the air.
On average a person uses approximately 10 different skin care products on their body every day. Since our skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier it absorbs about 130 different chemicals we are exposed to. A study from UC Berkeley proved that taking a short break from certain personal care products can lead to a dramatic drop in the levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals within the body.
