𝒮𝓀𝒾𝓃𝒸𝒶𝓇𝑒 𝒟𝑜’𝓈 & 𝒟𝑜𝓃’𝓉𝓈

1.)Wear Sunscreen Daily-UV radiation can still make its way through the clouds so don’t skip on cloudy days. ☀️ ☁️

2.)Give your body some love…skincare isn’t limited to your face! 

3.)Load up on antioxidants they will help protect your skin from free radicals

4.)Remove makeup before bed so your face can breath 

5.)Don’t forget to moisturize daily…even if you have oily skin that can be a sign you need more moisture

6.)Don’t over exfoliate

7.)Don’t neglect your neck and décolletage area…these show signs of aging first.

8.)Don’t skimp on sleep- you need at least 7-8 hours of beauty rest a night.

Happy Tuesday, friends! 🌱

Nanoparticles

🌷 Today over in my Clean Living Community, https://www.facebook.com/groups/raisingclean/, it was Thirsty for Knowledge Thursday 🌷

I work alongside some of the most knowledgeable women I have EVER known and they are kind enough to share their wisdom! ❤️I love that we are all teaching each other! I also love that my company has a blacklist of ingredients we will NEVER use to ensure our products are 100% toxin free and safe. I recently learned about nanos from one of these brilliant women.

This is HUGE! Well, actually it’s very small. Like, nanoparticle small–but the impact is huge. The size of a nanoparticle can be difficult to grasp, so to make an analogy: if a nanoparticle were the size of an orange, an orange would be as big as the earth!! Before I was introduced to this toxin free lifestyle, I was unaware of nanotechnology and its application in cosmetics. After learning from others, I found some scary stuff!! Nanotechnology allows for cosmetics to be constructed nanoparticle by nanoparticle in a very controlled way preventing makeup from running and allowing lipstick to stay on the lips for days. Sounds cool, right?! Wrong. Unfortunately, nanotechnology has essentially taken over the manufacturing of cosmetics in many companies in the industry, but thankfully many studies on the potential risks caused to both human life and the environment have been underway. One of the many scary things about nanoparticles is that the materials are small enough to penetrate the skin or get inside the body through inhalation. Just to list a few common nanoparticles they are: titanium dioxide, zinc, silver, and fullerene. When these nanoparticles are absorbed into the bloodstream and carried around the body it can cause DNA and cell function damage, brain damage, liver damage, and affects on the immune system. On top of all of that, titanium dioxide specifically has shown MAJOR potential repercussions in offspring.

I am SO thankful to have found a beauty and skincare company that will NEVER put these in their products! Ladies, we don’t have to jeopardize our health for our beauty or our beauty for our health!
