The largest organ we have is our skin…yet, I have to say many of us take it for granted not using enough sunblock or moisturizer or putting thought in to what goes ON our skin.
Did you know that your body absorbs things via skin much faster than anything you ingest? It’s wonderful that many of us have chosen to eat organic foods and remove processed foods from our diets to eliminate chemicals and toxins…but we aren’t eliminating some of the major chemicals in our lives.
HAIR CARE I have often wondered if a natural product would provide the same results as my highly marketed curl defining, super powerful frizz fighting shampoo and conditioner. Celadon Road has been my first step in to trying out natural hair care products. I am still using it in rotation with my other hair care because the truth is I’m just worried about my hair. Vain? Yes. In that case, I should be far more concerned with the long term impacts of the chemicals I’m slathering on. So far what I can say is this…the smell is so much better than any other shampoo, the container is recyclable and pretty, my hair feels great when I use it and I feel great about it! For those of you who highlight or color your hair, a natural shampoo will be sulfate free which helps ensure your hair isn’t being stripped of color or natural oils.
Natural shampoo benefits:
- will not strip your scalp of moisture
- will not coat your hair in silicon or leave other residue
- reduces your carbon footprint
- gentle on your skin
- provides natural ingredients to stimulate growth and health
Also very cool for many of you entrepreneurs is that Celadon Road has a program much like Arbonne or Avon that allows you to sell products you truly believe will make the lives of those around you better.
MOISTURIZER I posted previously about Sunfood MSM Lotion and have continued to use the MSM moisturizer instead of any fragrance items. I do feel really good about this and know it has helped with bruises healing faster (of which I have too many) and helped to even out my skin tone as well. I am sold on the all natural skin care here! FACIAL Recently, I took up the Skintactix 30 day challenge. I love the face wash which smells like cinnamon and the final mask of green tea. The smells are really refreshing and I noticed once I washed with a bar soap in a hotel the other night how much my skin had gotten used to those friendlier ingredients. I won’t lie, it takes something labeled 1, 2, 3 to make sure I use it daily and correctly. In fact, my biggest complaint is that you are supposed to use small amounts and any time I squeeze the bottle I get a handful, so I'm wasting good product….I’m also still breaking out a little, so maybe 1,2,3 isn’t enough for me.
