The 2015 Great NEWS posts share Healthy Habits to enhance our appearance, health and longevity. Today’s post on Natural Cosmetics for Face, Hair and Skin will offer some super special suggestions to help improve our beauty, health and skin. Women around the world are spending billions of dollars on facials, makeup, manicures, pedicures, skin care products and various lotions and potions to help improve their looks and skin. Unfortunately most of them are doing this without carefully investigating the product ingredients or production methods. Did you know that many make up and skin care products are derived from tallow which comes from animals? Most people would not consciously put rendered fat from cats, chickens, cows, dogs, pigs and roadkill on their face and body. Yet that is exactly what many women are doing unconsciously when they are using lip balm, lipstick and lotions made with rendered animal products. With so many unhealthy body care and skin care products on the market it is hard to know which ones to avoid and which ones to trust. This post will share some simple suggestions to help you discover the benefits of using natural cosmetics for face, hair and skin care you can trust.
Rendering is the process of cooking and extracting fats also called tallow from any products that originated from animals. This could include the whole or unused parts of animals from butcher shops, factory farms, roadkill and zoos as well as deceased animals from shelters and veterinary offices. Some of these animal products could be diseased and rotting but could still end up at the rendering factory. You have no way of knowing what was actually in the animal feed stock that ends up in the many products you buy that may contain animal fat or tallow.
Therefore the best way to protect yourself from these types of products is to use plant based products. While this sounds like the perfect solution many of the body care and skin care products on the market today come from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) sources that are also treated with synthetic chemicals, fertilizers and herbicides so they are contaminated with harmful compounds. We also know that many palm oil products comes from ecologically and environmentally destructive palm oil plantations that destroy animal habitat, indigenous peoples land and rainforests to create giant mono crop factory farmers.
So what is a woman to do in order to take great care of her face, hair and skin? First of all avoid the many cleaning agents, creams, lotions, shampoos and soaps made with synthetic chemicals and compounds. Synthetic chemical fragrances, parabens and preservatives are harmful and toxic. Only use organic and natural products for your beauty and body care needs. It is best to use a little totally natural organic product like Dr. Bronner’s soap for body, face and hair. They have a great reputation for using natural organic plant based oils to make their products.
We can strip the natural protective oils and sebum necessary to protect our hair and skin using synthetic chemicals and soaps. We actually need very little cleaning compounds to keep our body, face and hair clean, healthy and vibrant. Unfortunately most of the clogged pores, dirty hair and foul smells are the result of consuming and using products containing fats and oils that have been highly heated, refined and treated with chemicals and compounds. These unhealthy products go rancid and create foul compounds and smells that are more difficult to remove since they are processed of products very similar to paints or plastics. Adding more toxic conditioners, fragrances, lotions, make up, oils, shampoos, soaps, and sun screens make the skin even more contaminated, damaged and unhealthy.
By using only a minimal amount of natural cleaner like Dr Bronner’s soap we can gently clean our hair and skin. It is mainly our pits and privates that need some soap and water cleaning. There are many factors to determine if and how much cleaning our hair even needs. Using gobs of shampoo to lather up our hair is harmful to our hair and scalp as well as exposing us to numerous chemicals. After we are clean and fresh from washing with water we can use natural organic plant oils and products to provide beauty care, cosmetics, conditioners, facials, exfoliants, moisturizers, sun protection and treatments.
