Best Natural Ingredients - Infographic from Dr. Josh Axe
There are many good reasons to consider forgoing store bought commercial skincare and beauty products and using homemade natural ingredients instead.
For one thing, do-it-yourself (DIY) products tend to be much less expensive since many of the ingredients are already in your kitchen fridge or pantry.
Another compelling reason is compassion. The chemicals used in commercial products, as well as the products themselves, are tested on animals. Animal testing often involves unimaginable cruelty.
But perhaps the most persuasive argument is health. Not only the health of your skin - which, in and of itself is a big deal - since your skin is your body's largest "organ" but also your overall health. Remember that whatever you put anywhere on your body is absorbed into your body through the skin.
>>> What Toxic Chemicals Are You Absorbing?
Toxins in Commercial Products
Most commercial skincare and beauty products are laden with chemicals that are known or suspected to be toxic to humans. These include artificial colors, fragrance, stabilizers and preservatives.
Scientific studies done to date suggest that the chemicals found in commercial skincare and beauty products (as well as other self-care, hygiene and household products) can potentially have adverse health consequences.
These adverse health consequences include hormone imbalances, allergies, infertility and possibly even cancer.
Best Ingredients for Natural Skin Care
Nature has already provided us with the best skincare ingredients. Natural skincare "products" contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals and other nutrients that have been studied for their health effects.
