When people ponder health and their lifestyle choices…they usually think about diet and exercise…but they often forget what they wash and put on their bodies is just as important. Just like in our diets, using whole and natural products leads to a healthier and more long lasting results. Often we forget that our skin needs the love too!
Why Use Natural Products?
Often the products that we see in stores, name brand hygiene products, are loaded with chemicals and tend to cause the very problems you are trying to fix. By using a more more natural products, you can avoid irritation, break outs, and gross body odor.
A lot of times, when you start to use more gentle products, people notice more breakouts or that their deodorant doesn’t last as long. That’s okay. It’s your body trying to flush out all the chemicals and products that have been forcefully controlling your body’s natural process. If you are patient, after just a week or two…you’ll find that the natural products are working even better than what you used previously and even find that you don’t have to use many products at all…due to your body getting used to being able taking care of itself. It might just be worth a week of crazy changes for the result! Of course the disclaimer: If you do not have a healthy diet…you won’t smell pretty…you smell like what you eat and that’s the hard truth.
Also, plant-based products tend to be more earth friendly. By making unnatural products, the chemicals and toxins that are used in the product, are put into the air and sometimes even the water, during manufacturing. When your products contain less chemicals…the less chemicals are being put put into the world and who doesn’t like a healthier world. Healthy Earth= Healthy Us.
Lastly, in the long run, gentle products will be kinder to your skin. Your body will go through less wear and tear and you can look younger for longer…and who wouldn’t want that.
In the picture shown above, I featured products from my local soap shop here in Idaho. If you are interested, here is a link that will send you to Amanda William’s little store: goldenbeesoap.com/ .
Products, like Amanda’s, are all natural and use essential oils to help heal and clean the body. Whether you make your own or find brands that are plant-based, there are endless benefits that I will go into more detail in upcoming blogs.
