Can we all agree that everything we do begins and ends on a cellular level? Is that not how we all began in the womb? When we have a thought in our mind, does it not send a signal through our nervous system and tell the body to move? It’s crazy to me to think that the computer I am typing on right now is moving, vibrating so fast at a molecular level I can’t even see it. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Science is neat.
So, then can we agree that just because we don’t see it, it doesn’t mean it’s not affecting us? When you do something to one part of your body, it affects it all. Hubby rubbed my back and neck last night, my whole body felt at ease, even my feet.
This is a long post just for some personal care products 🤪
But that’s the whole point. When we use toxic products on our skin and hair, at the deepest level, one not plainly visible to us, we are affected. Most products contain EDC’s or Endocrine Disrupting Hormones, that affect our ENTIRE body, causing a domino affect, a bad one, that will eventually manifest back in the physical. We finally see it’s affect in infertility, thyroid issues, inflammatory response, etc.
The world seems to think that ingesting things is the only way for it to enter our body. So wrong. Our skin is our biggest organ. The primary function of the skin is to act as a barrier.
The skin provides protection from: mechanical impacts and pressure, variations in temperature, micro-organisms, radiation and chemicals (https://www.clinimed.co.uk/wound-care/wound-essentials/structure-and-function-of-the-skin).
So when we develop that rash, our skin is screaming at us saying, “NO, toxic chemical, you can’t come in!” Or it's trying to detox them from your system. (Our bodies were created to take in good and release bad or what's not needed)
Or when those chemicals mimic our own hormones, our bodies can’t tell the difference and is deceived, letting those toxins even pass through a mother’s placenta straight to her unborn child.
Let’s take notice of what we are putting on our skin and yes, our hair too. It is connected and should be considered alive and able to affect every part of the rest of us.
Snapped a candid of my face + hair routine. Copaiba Vanilla S+C and Orange Blossom Face Wash! Not only does it NOT contain yucky stuff, we have the added benefit (major benefit) of essential oils in these products 🙌🌿
