Skin Care: What Are You Putting In Your Bloodstream?

Skin Care: What Are You Putting In Your Bloodstream?

By Guest Blogger, Emily F.

Naturally based skin-care is on the rise, and it makes sense as to why. Your skin is your bodies largest organ. Anything you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream within 26 seconds. Majority of products on the market today are made up of 95% fillers, such as crude oil and animal byproduct. The harsh chemicals and ingredients found in certain skin care and beauty products are linked to many health problems such as eczema, cancer, hormone interruption, neurological diseases, and birth defects. Arbonne, a company that believes in the power of naturally based products, does not regulate over 2000 chemicals from being used in their products. The U.S. only prohibits the use of 10.

If you are looking for a healthier alternative that will have your skin glowing, looking young and refreshed, you are going to want to get your hands on some of Arbonne’s vegan skincare! Start off with cleansing your face with RE9 Advanced Prepwork Micellar Water. Micelles (tiny bunches of molecules) in this formula trap dirt, makeup and daily grime while coconut water conditions skin with hydration. After you get all the dirt and grime off your face, go in with the RE9 Advanced Skincare set. You’ll see results in just 24 hours! Who doesn’t want radiant, firm, hydrated and smooth skin that will only continue to improve over time? This skincare set, along with Arbonne’s others, are believed in by dermatologists. Don’t miss out on this anti-aging skincare, opportunity.

The Best Things In Life Are Free (Kinda)

The Best Things In Life Are Free (Kinda)

Sometimes, the best things in life are the things that the earth gives us. We don’t have to expand or develop on the things that it grows or produces in order for it to be something that we can use or adapt to our lifestyle. While this sounds a bit cryptic, we are probably missing out on quite a lot in our lives simply by skimming over the basics and leaning towards more complicated products – and it simply doesn’t have to be this way.

Products: Toothpaste and toothbrush

Swap for: Miswak or Charcoal

Swapping your toothpaste and toothbrush for miswak is like taking a step in the right direction. Miswak https://miswakclub.com/ comes from the Peeru tree and is harvested with your teeth’s health in mind. It naturally releases antiseptics, oils and sodium bicarbonate to help you achieve a whiter smile and fresher breath without having to use toothpaste or even water. There have been many reports to the benefits of charcoal powder used to whiten teeth too, and while it may seem counterproductive putting something black on your teeth in order to get them to a lighter and brighter colour, it’s one of those strange things in life that actually works … just don’t question it.

Products: Shampoo and conditioner

Swap for: Kitchen ingredients

You don’t have to be going to the store and investing in the latest shampoos and conditioners. Chances are that you already have the ingredients readily available in your kitchen to make your own. Generally speaking, the fewer ingredients you use, the better; you don’t want to overcomplicate matters by adding in stuff that isn’t necessary. A lot of people have cited coconut oil as the thing that works wonders for their hair, and olive oil and honey are constant contenders in the best ranked products that you can slather on your scalp. Although it may sound quite sticky, be assured that you can wash it out quite simply – you can find out more about different homemade shampoo and conditioner recipes at http://hair.allwomenstalk.com/fantastic-natural-homemade-shampoos/.

Products: Facemasks

Swap for: Fruit, Vegetables and Water

There is no way that you’ll ever be buying another facemask again after finding out how simple it is to make your own. It’s probably cheaper in the long run, too – especially if you make in bulk for a pamper party. As with the shampoo and conditioner, you probably have the ingredients lying around your house just waiting to be used up. Drinking a lot more water will help with the hydration of your skin and the receptiveness to the natural products that you are putting on it. Blend up your selected fruits and vegetables with natural oils and oats to make a thick mask which will do nothing but benefit your skin. Things like bananas and vinegar may seem like a messy (and rather stinky) combination, but your face will thank you for it. Utilise what you have got around you and see if it works – if you see any signs of a reaction, stop the use immediately and try something else.

5 reasons why you should use essential oils

You may or may not have already heard about essential oils, but as more research is conducted and more people talk about their incredible benefits you might want to jump on the bandwagon and start taking advantage of them!

Essential oils can be incorporated into your routine in a number of ways, but you must remember not to drink them!
A popular method is to incorporate them into your skincare routine, you can also inhale them as part of aromatherapy, use them in massage, in a diffuser and also as a compress.

But why would you want to use essential oils?

1. Glowing skin.

If you want a radiant glow, try adding some essential oils into your skincare at night. Popular essential oils to incorporate are frankincense and myrrh.
Adding a couple of drops of these oils into your moisturizer can help in a range of ways, from reducing inflammation (meaning it’s good for acne), to premature aging and wound healing it’s hard to stop using it once you’ve started!

2. Mood-boosting.

Mental health is just as important as physical health and it’s important we give attention to how we are feeling inside. When applied topically, ylang ylang essential oil in particular has been found to relieve stress, calm people down and has an overall relaxing effect on the mind.
Finding or making your own ylang ylang blend and taking some with you as you travel about your day could be a simple remedy to help stay relaxed and focus on your mental well-being.

3. Beauty sleep.

A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for your health; from improving your memory to staying in shape, you should try and attain the best nights sleep you can. Certain essential oils can help you get the better quality sleep more of the time. Interested? Try lavender oil. Lavender has been shown to improve quality of sleep and also shown to reduce anxiety.

4. All-rounders.

When you buy essential oils, make sure to buy high quality and organic, or you might not get the full benefit of the oil. If an oil isn’t organic you might get some unwanted effects from traces of pesticide residue concentrated in the oil. Buying the highest quality oils can sometimes be quite pricey, however, you don’t have to buy every essential oil there is – even though it can be quite tempting when you realize each of their benefits!

A good idea, particularly if you’re new to essential oils is to purchase an essential oil that is versatile and possesses a wide range of benefits. Tea tree oil is one of these great all-rounders to add to or begin your collection. The infographic below demonstrates some of tea tree oil’s benefits.

5. Immune boosters

Not feeling so great? When you’re feeling run down, different essential oils can combat different symptoms. Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial and can help clear your sinuses. It also stimulates your immune system, which in turn is going to help you feel better, faster.
The “flu fighter” oregano oil can also help you when you’re not feeling 100%, from helping with sore throats to it’s antiviral properties, it might be a suitable one to add to your collection if you’re prone to colds.

As you can see, the myriad of benefits essential oils can potentially provide are worth looking into and trying for yourself!
