Now a days consumers are becoming more and more aware of what is actually in their food. We are learning that if you can't pronounce it, we shouldn't eat it. We are taking more time to read our labels and look for sneaky fillers and toxins that are being labeled as edible and seeking alternatives or just plain learning a new way to eat. It is the age of information and with that comes change. We can't go back! No, once you know the truth, you can't go back.
Well, did you know that the skin is the largest organ of the body and it absorbs nutrients or chemicals directly into your bloodstream?
While our skin is a protective barrier for our most vital organs, toxic ingredients in skin care can have a direct effect on your health seeing as how the chemicals can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream without the help of the liver or kidneys.
In going as natural as possible I have begun using a gentle soap and warm water to cleanse my skin followed by a firming, all natural Baobab Fruit Powder mask. It is amazing. The fruit powder is so rich in antioxidants I can literally feel the years falling off my face! There are no chemicals, no fillers, just FRUIT!
It's just so simple. After mixing a tablespoon of the raw, organic, powdered fruit with just enough water to form a paste, I apply it directly to my face and neck just like any face mask. It smells wonderful, a tangy citrus aroma straight from the earth.
After fifteen minutes, I simply rinse with warm water and moisturize with extra virgin olive oil. I use coconut or olive oil daily to moisturize my face and body! It's a face mask you can taste. Your body will thank you!
