Knowledge is power. Here at LUNAR Skincare, we're all about sharing our knowledge and lessons learnt to help others. A simple snippet of information is sometimes all we need to make a more informed decision about our health and wellbeing.
Today's we're sharing a few facts we're not taught about our bodies and the products we use daily...
🌙 It's estimated that women use between 12 to 15 personal care products a day, which can equate to a daily exposure of around 170 unique chemicals.
🌙 Many cosmetic and skincare products have over 10,500 unique chemical ingredients. That's just one out of the 12- 15 products you apply daily.
🌙 It takes just 60 - 90 seconds for your skincare products to be absorbed into your skin.
🌙 After 2 - 3 minutes of absorption, your skincare enters your bloodstream and is being pumped around your body.
🌙 Many of the chemicals and toxins found in mainstream skincare and beauty products can be linked to skin irritation and trigger allergies, contain known carcinogens, hormonal dysfunctions and impair liver and other vital organ functions.
🌙 For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals from the moment of conception to death.
Have you stopped to think about what ingredients are in the products you apply daily? Or how these products are affecting your overall wellbeing?
Your skin is your largest organ. Often the most overlooked.
The first step towards making better choices is choosing natural skincare brands that nourish your skin without nasty chemicals.
