Alright, ladies! Time to talk beauty! I’m sure you know that the skin is the largest organ of the body. What does that mean? What goes on, goes in! 60% of what you apply to your skin will soon be making it to your blood stream! How Lovely!! A good example of how this occurs would be to look at how birth control and nicotine patches work.
I hate to say it, babes, but Cancer, specifically breast cancer, did not just fall from the sky! We have a say in our health! Human beings, especially Women, are applying cancer causing chemicals to their entire body every single day. Shampoos, soaps, anti-perspiring deodorant, prescription acne and skin treatments, lotions, sunblock (don’t even get me started), make-ups, perfumes, etc.
If you look at the body as a machine, it was essentially created to perfection! The lymphatic system is designed to carry toxins to the outside of the body.
Yes, ladies, we were meant to sweat! Surprise!
Were we meant to stink though? No, not necessarily! The body is responding to the foods we eat. It’s quite simple – we eat crap, we smell like crap. When we put anti-perspiring deodorant on, aka Aluminum, not only are we trapping the toxins inside the body but we are also adding to the toxic load – causing more odor in the long run. See how they keep you trapped? Ha! Bitches.
Now what? Well, the body can’t release the toxins through the skin, so it has to create a system of storing it. Essentially, our body creates garbage bins – which we call Tumors.
We do this with all conventional skin products! It’s messed up actually. You want to believe that we can trust these products that tell us if we use them, we will be more beautiful, more radiant, and more perfect.. Nope! It’s a bunch of shit! Once you start using them, you will be trapped in the world of constantly covering up, and adding to, the toxic system that is your body.
Awesome news though! There are natural, food grade, organic, non-toxic options for all of these products!
Best advice I ever received was to not put anything on my skin that I couldn’t put in my mouth!
This is my new and improved makeup bag! Everything was handcrafted by myself, a family member, or Moon Rise Creek – a trusted small-time creator of herbal and botanical makeup and skin products! Right now, I have a foundation powder, cover-up, and mascara from her that is the bomb!
My bronzer is made with medical mushrooms – a secret family recipe! (:
My blush? Beet root powder, mica, and a few other natural minerals.
My makeup no longer makes me break out. I could fall asleep without scrubbing my face and know that the products on my skin are doing no harm to my body.
My lotion and sunscreen?
Organic butter (Shae, Cacao), Cold pressed oil (coconut, grape seed, argan, etc..). Seabuckthorn oil is a great to add to your homemade lotions for some extra sun protection! My favorite thing to use, when it’s available, is an all organic EDIBLE chocolate body butter that my mother has made to perfection.
Deodorant and Perfume? A good diet, Samahadi incense powder, and essential oils! Get “fragrance” out of your life!
There are better options for everything, you just have to dig to find them, or make them your own damn self! It’s gold!
TRUE BEAUTY PRODUCTS DO EXIST!
Products that don’t just mask the toxic system but actually aid in the healing of it!
It’s time we look into, and research, the cosmetic and beauty products that we have been using on our skin – this includes prescription skin treatments given to you by your “trusted professional.” Throw that shit away! If thats too stressfull, finish up on the things you have and as they run out, buy, or make, a better version of that product! It’s that simple!
I say, trust no one, but yourself! Educate yourself and make a conscious choice about what you will put on your body!
Love your body fully!
Love, Z (your moon babe)
