Skin Absorbs Most Toxins
By Joan Kesman, Skin Care Plus, the best facials and natural skin care products in Chicago, Geneva, Batavia, St. Charles and beyond.
Our spa is all about personal and natural skin care. Why should you care? Just like our fingerprints, everyone’s overall skin condition, complexion and chemistry is different. Combine that with age-related factors and dietary factors, allergies and sensitivities, and there is not a silver bullet or a one-size-fits-all remedy that we can pull off the shelf and apply like tonic water. A personal evaluation and a personal approach makes a noticeable difference quickly.
Secondly, the natural aspect of skin care is equally important. Remember, our skin is the largest organ of the body. It absorbs everything applied–good and bad. Some products are questionable. Some are outright toxic and carcinogenic. An alarming amount of skin care products contain petroleum byproducts, such as parabens (a group of chemicals widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries to extend the shelf life of products). They have been linked to cancer, and may have an estrogenic effect. These chemicals can be found in face and body moisturizers, body wash, and cleansers.
Bad skin care products can cause pores to become clogged and circulation impaired. So, age, race, diet, stress, place of residence and work (toxins), and hereditary factors all can play a role in skin condition, anti-aging and the personal treatment necessary to achieve optimum health.
