Chemicals on Our Skin

Our skin is the largest organ of our body and the most ignored when it comes to health. We don't realize how many chemicals our skin comes into contact each day. Through our skin these chemicals can go into our blood stream and over time can cause possible side effects. It's alway a good idea to be aware of what chemicals you are eating, drinking or putting on your body.

Mind Body Green posted a great infograph from The Daily Mail that shows the 515 chemicals women put on their bodies everyday. Hmm I wonder if it's a good time to start thinking about switching to organic shampoos, make-up and lotions? I know it's a tough habit to break but it seems we all should take a look at slowly introducing organic beauty products into our daily beauty rituals.

Do you use organic beauty products? 



  1. I use organic moisturizer, body lotion and toner but my hair products are chemicals. Guess it's time to switch those too. Thanks for the info! Keep sharing :)


  2. The timing on this post couldn't be better...I've definitely been trying to live a cleaner life the past year or so and it just occurred to me that I should start being more careful about what products I use on my skin, hair, etc. This is a great wakeup call!
