I found an interesting article on Consumers Health Digest about The toxic things in many skin care products.
Because of this I love to make as many of our skin care products as we can using very simple ingredients. Did you know that a few drops of vitamin E in your homemade skin care products will help to preserve them? Also coconut oil is one of the least likely oils to go rancid and is wonderful for the skin. Coconut oil has one of the quickest absorbent rates of the oils so it won’t leave the skin feeling oily very long.
Ok here is the article By Consumer Health Digest (1):
Our skin needs to be taken care of consistently in order to look beautiful. We need to practice an effective daily skincare regimen, use the right skincare products and consume the right amount of nutrients every day in order to upkeep our skin, teeth, hair and nails. When we do not practice such a regimen, we are often faced with oily or dry skin that often starts to scale, break out in acne, develop dark spots or show signs of premature aging. These factors not only affect how we look, but also has a major impact on our self-esteem – we all know that first impressions matter and we want to look our best when we meet someone to, in order to convey a better first impression towards the new people we meet.
