Did you know that most women apply over 80+ toxic chemicals to their bodies before they leave the house in the morning? To me, that is just astonishing! If you are looking to reduce that amount, then it is time to start looking at natural solutions for your skincare routine. Let me help you learn about how to say goodbye to those chemical-filled skincare products and say hello to some natural yet effective facial cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and more.
There are several ways you can reduce your toxic load by reevaluating products in your bathroom. Think about products that touch your skin or that you inhale. Are you someone who takes a shower first thing in the mornings and gets ready for your day? What do you do? Jump in the shower and wash your hair, body, and face. So what products touch your skin? Shampoo and conditioner – are you using natural products that you are sure don’t have chemicals in them? How about your body wash and face wash? Here are the natural products that are in my shower.
Natural Products in Your Shower
I love doTERRA’s Protecting Shampoo and Smoothing Conditioner. The Protecting Shampoo is a professional formula with a blend of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils, gentle cleansers, and botanical ingredients. While the Smoothing Conditioner is a professional formula of conditioning emollients, botanical extracts, and natural proteins. These products leave hair clean, soft, and shiny without damaging it or putting toxins in your body. This would be a great place to start reducing your toxic load and not to mention an easy switch.
So many soaps these days have chemicals that claim to kill bacteria. The bad thing about that is they all contain chemicals that can wreak havoc on your system. With refreshing oils like Bergamot, Grapefruit, and Cedarwood, doTERRA’s Refreshing Body Wash is a great alternative to replace those toxic soaps. This natural gel cleanser foams up perfectly which helps it glide across the skin without stripping the skin of its natural oils. I love how it leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth, and refreshed.
I have tried a lot of skincare lines in my days and this one is by far my favorite. I use many products from the Essential Skin Care Line, but right now I want to focus on this facial cleanser. With my acne-prone and very moody (dry to oily overnight) skin, this has been a lifesaver. It contains both Melaleuca (Tea Tree) and Peppermint essential oils that help purify and tone the skin, which helps support a healthy complexion. With natural cleansers of Yucca Root Extract and Soapbark Extract, it gently washes away impurities leaving skin looking clean, fresh, and smooth.
Now that we have touched on replacing your shower products, with natural options, let’s talk about everything you put on your face. As I mentioned above, I love the Essential Skin Care Line from doTERRA. Let me show you my routine below and explain to you what I use and why I use it. I hope you find this helpful and you start to consider natural options for your face as well.
