Skin care- what is healthy? Skin is your largest organ.

There are many products on the market that offer cosmetics, and creams that are actually more damaging to your skin and your overall health than many realize. The toxic elements and ingredients found in most cosmetics would make you sick. Most brands use an element of mineral oil that should be banned. Mineral oil is just a derivative of motor oil. You would never slather motor oil all over your body but when you use lotions, makeup, and other beauty products which you are not aware of the ingredients, you are subjecting yourself to incredible health hazards. Baby products are even under scrutiny and investigation because products displaying "all natural and safe" for baby, are not even safe and are using carcinogens as preservatives. Carcinogens over time cause cancer.
Women are not looking into this like they should when purchasing their make-up. What you put on your skin gets into your blood stream. Lotions, perfume, make-up, shampoo, is all ending up in your body. Can you imagine how toxic your system is right now from years of unknowing damage?Unless you change something quickly, you can be making yourself very sick.
There are science backed nutrients that are good for you skin and healthy for you!
- Omega 3's help soothe skin from the inside out, this also has amazing digestive benefits to ensure you are ridding your body of toxic elements. Aging occurs over time when the skin is not moisturized and taken care of from the inside.
-Probiotics- These can help balance your digestive tract, and in some cases will help fight skin problems, such as dermatitis.
-Collagen, Vitamin A, C, and E- These all support skin and overall cell health and production.
-Green Tea and Lycopene can prevent damage from UV rays and fight off cancer.
