Staying healthy this Halloween

Being healthy involves what you put in, on, and around your body.

As Halloween approaches, along with changes in temperatures, you may be reaching more for face paint and moisturizing creams to add to your body. Before you reach just any product take a look at the ingredients. Can you pronounce them? If not, then what in the heck are you putting on your largest organ that then filters into your body?

 

I have to admit being in Nicaragua, Ometepe, is not the best option for my skin due to the water and limited products available. Initially I was using Palmolive soap which left my skin feeling yucky and sticky until I came across a completely natural bar of soap with tea tree oil. The price tag was astronomical, $140 cordobas or $5 for a bar of soap. Yet the feeling I received as my skin felt soft and actually clean was priceless. I had brought my own shampoo and fortunately was able to find this all natural shampoo at a local salon.
All natural ingredients
Sadly, we have to now pay a higher price for living healthywith all natural products yet that’s in the short term. In the long term we benefit from staying healthy longer as we are more focused on what we put in and on our bodies.
 
Recently, a client asked what beauty products should be avoided and as the universe would have it, I received an informative email highlighting the top 10 toxic chemicals to avoid. As not to repeat an already beautifully written article, I offer it you by clicking here for the top 10 toxic chemicals to avoid.
Thankfully there are growing companies dedicated to keeping you safe, such as Annmarie, Burt’s Bees, DoTerra, and Pangea to name a few. Here are a few of my favorite resources and tips to staying safe all year long regardless of where you are.
Beauty Tips:
  • You may pay more initially yet the lasting health outcome is well worth it.
  • Avoid items that list “fragrance” and choose essential oils.
  • If you cannot pronounce the ingredients, don’t buy it.
  • Choose organic only if it has the USDA organic symbol.
  • Avoid lead products; Common places to find lead are lipsticks and deodorant.
  • Natural does not always mean safe, always read the ingredients and when in doubt ask.
