Your skin absorbs up to 60 % of your personal care products
Your skin is the largest organ of your body consisting of an absorption and penetration system. Depending on the toxin, absorption happens in the bloodstream and penetration happens within the deep layers of the skin. If you are still using products that contain sulfates, parabens, and all the other yucky stuff, your body is absorbing that. Just to put it into perspective, we use lotion, soap, and deodorant on a daily basis.
That's 365 days that our skin is trying to fight off toxins in ALL of those non- green products!
This is why you should cleanse your skin everyday! Sleeping in makeup preages your skin, traps dirt underneath the surface, and doesn't allow your skin cells to renew. So each night, I begin my skin care routine with either a DIY makeup remover/clarifying wipe or a simple store bought option.
This is how I make my own DIY Cleansing wipes.
What you will need:
- 4 oz container & top
- 5 Cotton Pads
- 2 TBS Organic Coconut Oil
- 2 TBS Organic Castor Oil
Directions: Insert the cotton pads into the container, pour the melted coconut oil, and castor oil over the pads. Once the pads are saturated, you can use them to cleanse your skin! Simple right!! Click here to see the video and store recommendations or watch below!
