Why And How To Detoxify Your Beauty Cabinet

What they say is true, beauty really is skin-deep; and that means that healthy, glowing skin starts from the inside out.

What many people don’t know is that our skin absorbs almost everything it comes into contact with, meaning that our moisturisers, makeup and even deodorants can have serious effects on the health and appearance of our skin.

Unfortunately many of us think we are making a healthy choice by purchasing brands that advertise as ‘natural’ or ’organic’ when this may not really be the case. In fact, you would be amazed at some of the hoops companies jump through to falsely advertise their products.

And so we thought we would share how we keep our beauty cabinet clean and low-tox.

Read Your Labels

Now this may seem like an obvious one but to be honest, reading ingredients on a moisturiser is a heck of a lot harder than any food item.

The key to this is looking for minimal ingredients, preferably organic and if possible - ones you recognise.

This is why we love the Pure Deo Co. Lip Balms (found in our Summer Box!) and the absolute transparency that is their ingredients list. Organic Shea Nut Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Grapeseed Oil, Extra Virgin Organic Avocado Oil, Calendula Flower Extract and Organic Lime Essential Oil (100% pure). What’s not to love?

Stick With The Good Ones

If you find a brand that ‘ticks all of the boxes’ and you love the way the product looks or makes you feel, then support it with your dollar. The best way we can support change truly is with our dollar.

Ditch The Perfume

Many people embracing a more natural lifestyle have moved away from commercial perfumes - and with good reason. This is because the chemicals used in conventional perfumes have been proven todisrupthealthy hormone production in the body and even irritate skin. In fact, many common perfume ingredients are actually listed on the US Environmental Protection Agency’s “Hazardous Waste list”.

But if applying perfume is really your thing, why not go down the natural route? Pure essential oils for example can be diluted in a carrier oil, such as coconut, and applied to the skin for a therapeutic, toxin-free scent.

These three simple tricks will work wonders when it comes to reducing the toxic load we’re carrying on our skin. So why not put them into practice and see what miraculous changes await!

You can find Pure Deo Co's range of all-natural lip balms, deodorants and other all-natural products on their website: www.puredeoco.com.au

Each year, millions of coffee drinkers sip on their coffees without knowing the truth behind their cup. To understand the huge impact, we must understand first that coffee is actually a cherry that grows on a shrub, and at least 80% of the coffee fruit is wasted during processing. In fact, it is one of the only fruits where the seeds are consumed and not the fruit itself.
