If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your body.Posted: May 2, 2012
That’s a mouthful. Most of us have a bathroom cabinet full of products, I will hazard a guess and say over 50% of those products are half full or maybe even unopened. Now the really uncomfortable question, how long have they been there?
Yup, if it’s been over 6 months even the products that are “all natural” should be trash bound. The un-natural lot of products sitting there were toxic to begin with so time isn’t really an issue.
What is the issue?
Our bodies absorb what ever you slather, squirt, spray, rub, dab on your sweet bod. Meaning, you could be eating all your veggies, thwarting all refined sugar from your diet but if you are covering yourself in toxic, chemical laden products you might not be feeling so hot.
This is a big topic and I can’t pretend to have all the answers BUT I do have one and with summer around the corner I’m feeling very timely.
Soapwalla Deodorant, it’s tried and true by both myself and my husband. You can read the creator’s story here. I found out about this product while reading an article about Tata Harper, current natural beauty queen, the article covered products she uses herself – all natural of course. Like me she did not have luck with the deodorant crystals or Burt’s Bee’s products BUT Soapwalla worked for her and it’s working for me too. One caveat – you get used to the cream application, just do your whole under arm area.
And to quote Billy Joel, “I love you just the way you are” (even if you’re stinky….that part’s me not Billy)
