Beauty is a Big Deal

Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies, and it absorbs what it contacts, including hair products, deodorants, and lotions. If these products have chemical ingredients, they are absorbed into the body, and because they cannot be broken down, they remain in the body as toxins which can detrimentally affect the liver, the spleen, the nerves, and other areas. For example, most deodorants contain aluminum, a heavy metal, which prevents your body from sweating. Sweating is a natural way that the body releases toxins and other waste materials. When these wastes cannot be released, they clog the lymphatic system, namely in the area of the breast tissue, and can manifest into breast lumps. Look for deodorants that do not contain aluminum, and try to find shampoos, lotions, and other products with ingredients whose names you can pronounce and are safe for you both inside and out.
