Clean Beauty Series: Lesson #4

It takes 26 seconds for what you put on your skin to pass through your protector (skin) and enter your bloodstream.

They all pass through your skin and into your bloodstream. In just 26 seconds they can improve your health and beauty, or they can impair your life and change your future.

You are in control. You are becoming a Clean Beauty Snob (CBS) empowered to say NO to drugs and toxins in beauty products.

Beautiful skin and teeth can happen when whole-body health is established. Detox your skin and body care products and witness your health and your beauty come back to life.

Here is why what you put
on your skin matters:

You have a few protective organs that work hard to keep your body clean of toxins when you eat. These protective organs get bypassed and do not come into play with your skincare products.

When you ingest food through your mouth, your saliva, digestive juices, and liver ultimately break these toxins down and convert them into water-soluble compounds so you can excrete them through your urine (kidneys), breath (lungs), lymphatics and sweat (skin).

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health looked into the skin’s absorption rates of chemicals found in drinking water. It showed that the skin absorbed an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage(1).

Water… tap water.  Crap water loaded with toxins that is the primary ingredient of almost every personal care product on the shelf.

Other studies found the face to be several times more permeable than broad body surfaces and an absorption rate of 100% for underarms and genitalia(2). And another peer-reviewed study showed 100% absorption for fragrance ingredients(3).

Your body is not designed to protect you from toxins you absorb through your skin…

What you absorb from your skincare goes directly into your bloodstream and travels throughout your body.  It goes to your brain, heart, lungs, placenta, and all of your organs.

Only a very small percentage will go to your liver or lungs to be converted for elimination via your urine or breath. This is why it is so important to use only CLEAN beauty products.

In the next lesson, I am going to teach you how to find hidden toxins in what looks like clean ingredients.
