Lots of people moisturize these days. Even Vinnie Jones allegedly. But do you know exactly what you're putting onto your skin and therefore into your body...? Thought I'd make this a bit of an 'education' blog, with lots of help from Karyl Iles at Arbonne Shropshire.
Many folk are now starting to scrutinise the ingredients’ labels of skin products they are using. This is due to a growing trend of people wanting assurance that any products they use on their hair or skin contain only safe and natural ingredients.
Chemically based ingredients block the skin’s natural functions and can cause allergies or worse. Some health experts believe that the increasing number of children and adults born / developing sensitive skin is due to the high concentration of chemical formulations found in many ‘high street’ brands.
In addition, our skin is the largest organ of our body and everything that we apply is absorbed and enters the bloodstream. Just think about things like pain-relief gels and nicotine replacement patches and you start to realise how quickly the active ingredients in these products get absorbed.
It's scary but if you look carefully at what goes into your lotions and products, you could find:
I mean, paraffin!
So if you'd prefer to use skin care and hair care products containing ‘none of the above’, a natural range is now available right here in Shrewsbury. Arbonne products are Swiss-formulated and especially useful for dry, sensitive skin conditions such as Eczema and there are ranges for the whole family.
