Hi everyone Ali here,
I have just recently come across a huge amount of information that is scaring the crap out of me, so I feel the need to share it and let you and yours know about it too.
Did you know that there are over 3000 ingredients used in personal care products, cleaning products, supplements and bathroom products that are Toxic. These hidden toxins can cause skin and eye irritation, cell mutation (also known as cancer), inflammation, liver damage, kidney damage etc. And you know what’s worse? They don’t even tell us about it. Have a look at your personal care and skin care products, do you see parabens? sodium laurel sulfates? Do you even know what they are? I didn’t. Can you pronounce the ingredients on the label? I dare you to Google half of those ingredients. Do yourself and your family a favour and use this amazing wealth of information called the internet and educate yourself on the products you are putting on your skin, and on your child’s skin. The bubble baths you use, the shampoos you use, the body washes you use. I was horrified. I’m now looking for a product I can use that has very little, if any toxins in it. As my mentor Isabel De Los Rios (creator of Beyond Diet) says if you can’t pronounce it don’t use it. Lets look at an example
Eczema is a chronic skin disorder categorised by scaly and itching rashes.People with eczema often have a family history of allergic conditions like asthma and hay fever
Eczema is most common in infants, and at least half of those cases clear by age 36 months, but why is it happening at all? In adults, it is generally a chronic or recurring condition. A hypersensitivity reaction, similar to an allergy, occurs in the skin causing chronic inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become itchy and scaly. Chronic irritation and scratching can cause the skin to thicken and become leathery-textured. Exposure to environmental irritants can worsen symptoms, as can dryness of the skin, exposure to water, temperature changes, and stress.
Dry skin often makes the condition worse. When washing or bathing, keep water contact as brief as possible, and use soap alternatives . After bathing, it is important to trap the moisture in the skin by applying lubricating cream on the skin while it is damp. Temperature changes and stress may cause sweating, and aggravate the condition.
Eczema is a chronic condition, but it may be controlled with treatment and avoidance of irritants.
Prevention and Complimentary Approach
Many people today suffer with eczema; it’s very common in babies and adults alike. There are always lots of different factors involved, and there will be differences in each case.There have been some excellent results for people who boost the immune system with minerals and antioxidants, as well as removing all irritants from the home and bathroom.These irritants are found in products with ingredients such as Sodium Laurel Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, DEA, TEA, MEA, alcohol, animal fats, butane, mineral oil and talc.
