How deep is our skin?
When we teach about nutritional cleansing and the importance of whole ingredients for your body and skin, I tend to use the 'garden' or the 'wild' as an example simply because our skin is not that thick and when you look at the earth, the soil is super super super deep; but yet when you throw chemicals directly into the soil, you notice how things die within weeks or days or hours? Ever wonder what it's doing for you?
Did you know the best way to take your vitamins is trans-dermally; through your skin? So that means that literally everything you put onto your skin is absorbed and yet, most don't think about this when they put on their 'white creamy' skincare and products and what that will do, not to mention that they are looking for the results the label tells them they are going to experience the next morning!? Wow.
So how about prevention or slowing aging and making the body healthier so the immune system is strong? I always say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and today everyone knows this to be true...not that everyone is practicing this, but still, day by day, there is more awareness and though it seems that the stats are against us, the dark ages of the cosmetic industry and food industry here in Canada and the U.S. are soon to be over. From contrast always comes beauty and good so set yourself apart and make the decision based on the fact you want to live a LONG and healthy life. Me? I'm going for 150!
