What are you putting into your body?

With words like “detox” and “clean living” gaining more popularity, you might wonder where we encounter these toxins in the first place.  Here’s a few places you might be unintentionally letting toxins into your body.

  1. Skincare products

The average woman uses 16 beauty products on a daily basis.  16.  AND the ingredients in those products enter our bloodstream after just 26 seconds, so you can see how important it is to know what we are putting on our skin.  It isn’t an easy task to research the ingredients in every product you use…and that’s why I use Beatycounter!  All of the ingredients in their products are researched.  I don’t have to worry that what I am putting on my skin will cause any irritation or issues internally.

2. Fruit and Veggies

Fruit and vegetables often carry trace amounts of the pesticides and fertilizers on their skin.  The EWG tested 48 popular fruits and vegetables for pesticide persistence.  Studies have linked these chemicals to a range of health problems.  This emphasizes the importance of thoroughly washing produce and buying organic when possible.

3. Your shoes

When we leave the house, we are exposed to all sorts of germs and chemicals.  We don’t have to bring them into the house, though!  A good quality floor mat will keep those toxic substances in the entryway.  Indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental health problems in America.  Where do these pollutants come from?  85% of contaminants are brought into our home in the first four steps, but a good quality entry mat can put a stop to that.  It will remove many pesticides and pollutants and reduce the time you have to spend cleaning up dirty footprints!
