Now, let’s talk about toxins!
I’ve written several posts on my blog about toxins and what products I use. Here are 3 examples and make sure to check out my Spoonie Products page too to see the products I suggest using!
It really is important to remember every toxin that we encounter affects our body and our immune system. Most times we don’t even realize this is occurring!
Toxins in the air, toxins in the water, toxins in our beauty products, toxins in our medications, toxins in our food . . . some we can control and others we really don’t have control over.
You don’t need to throw everything out right away.
That would be WAY too overwhelming and would cost you a fortune! My top tip? Whenever you run out of your items, replace them with a more natural product instead of rebuying the same thing. So, next time your window cleaner is empty, replace it with an all-natural cleaner. Whenever your blush runs out, replace it with an organic mineral blush. Once you kick your hair gel, switch over to a paraben/sulfate/alcohol free gel.
Taking small steps to eliminate the toxic load in your body will help so so sooooooo much.
It will help reduce inflammation, it will help decrease the toxic load on your liver and overall will help your body to thrive.
Here are some resources to help you figure out what ingredients you should be steering clear of:
And I’ll leave you with a great Mind Body Green post that talks about using nontoxic household products in your beauty routine!
Do you ever wonder how much money you spend on beauty products? Do you ever wonder if you really need all the bottles and jars in your medicine cabinet? Do you ever wonder how many toxins are in the prepackaged formulas you regularly put on your skin and hair and into your body?
Wishing You A Pain Free Day!
