If you’re happy with your usual moisturiser you might never have considered the hidden impact it is having on your body. But if you have ever suffered from eczema, skin allergies or break outs it could be time to listen up.
It’s no new news that your skin is the largest organ of your body and therefore makes sense to consider what you put on it. Have a look at your current skin moisturiser, most of the non-natural ones are full of chemicals that are secretly making it tough for your body to process. Anything with petroleum, parabens or acrylamide have been known to cause dermatological problems like clogged pores, toxin build up, hormonal disrupts and in the case of acrylamide links to mammary tumors.
The great news is that if you are ready to go natural there are plenty of gorgeous products that are free of toxins, chemical and artificials. Their natural ingredients make it easy for the body to process leaving your body free to deal with other toxins (like that 3rd glass of champagne last night).
Most of the latest natural moisturisers lean heavily toward ingredients like aloe vera and coconut oil that are nourishing and most importantly safe for your skin.
