DITCH FACE WASH!
This past week, I was looking through old files trying to find our marriage license so that I could keep Larry on our insurance coverage. Do you know what I found? A whole file of Proactiv invoices! Yep. I used to order that stuff monthly. It made me cringe when I saw it, but also proud that I’m so much more knowledgeable about what to allow and not to allow in my home and on my body.
The top three ingredients on this graphic are actually three of the greatest offenders when we are talking about chemicals that you want to avoid. And we are putting this near our eyes and mouth and it’s getting absorbed into our blood stream!
The first is sodium lauryl sulfate. It is a known skin irritant, pollutes our ground water and is a pesticide/herbicide. No thanks.
DITCH CHEMICAL FILLED FACE WASH. SWITCH TO Orange Blossom Face Wash.
This face wash makes my list of top 10 fave YL products that are not oils. So good! And when diluted in a foaming soap dispenser, it lasts forever.
DIY – simply wash with coconut oil. Yep. I know it sounds counter-intutitive to wash your face with an oil, but you can google it. I alternate between this and Orange Blossom.
