The Beauty

We all know that exposure to toxins can have negative effects on our health and that it is best to avoid them when appropriate. But do you know how poisons penetrate our lives and how much damage they cause to our body as a result of direct exposure to them?

It is naive to believe that poisons can only be released from polluted air or household cleaning products. Our homes, the air we breathe, the food we eat, the cosmetics and personal care products we use, and other things regularly expose us to a wide variety of toxins. They are present in the salad you eat for dinner, in the candle you light at work, and in the artificial sugar you add to your coffee. They can even be found in a candle. The sheer volume of toxic substances we are exposed to on a daily basis is staggering and almost incomprehensible. Even by conservative estimates, we are exposed to over 700,000 unique poisons every day. These chemicals are part of the so-called “toxic load” that is known to have a negative impact on our health.

You may be surprised to know that toxins can have the following effects on your body, but here are some of them:

Weight gain. The body’s ability to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and metabolize cholesterol is negatively affected by the presence of toxins in the bloodstream. The fact that synthetic poisons are highly soluble in fat means that the body will produce extra fat to store them rather than flush them out of the body. Not only can this lead to weight gain, but it can also lead to diabetes in the long run.

Breakthroughs. Your organs and other body systems can overwork if your body is flooded with toxins. The liver and lymphatic system are essential for removing toxins from the body; but if they get clogged with toxins, the only way to get the toxins out of the body is through the skin. As a result, acne, eczema and other rashes can develop.

Digestive problems. When the liver, lymphatic system, and colon do not work in concert with each other, waste products are not removed from the body in an efficient manner. Inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, and perhaps even Crohn’s disease are just some of the chronic conditions that can result from carrying a significant toxic load.

Uneven Hormone Levels Toxins have the potential to disrupt the endocrine system, ie disturb the balance of hormones in the body. Estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormone, insulin, and cortisol are the hormones most commonly affected by stress. Hormonal imbalances can lead to a variety of adverse health outcomes, including infertility, early onset of puberty, obesity, heart disease, and possibly even breast and other cancers.

How then can you reduce the burden of toxins you carry with you? You can adjust your daily activities to reduce the amount of toxins entering your body with just a little awareness and effort. Here are some tips:

Detox. You should choose a cleansing or detox program that will help you quickly remove toxins from your body and restore health and balance.

Make sure you drink plenty of water. Water can help flush out toxins from your body, in addition to helping the liver and other organs contribute to the detoxification process. Nutritionist Kimberly Snyder highly recommends starting your day with a glass of hot water and a slice of lemon as an additional quick and easy detox method.

Use organic methods. The widespread use of chemical pesticides in agricultural machinery means that their residues can seep into the food you consume or into the ingredients of the cosmetics and personal care products you use. If you choose an organic alternative, you won’t have to worry about your salad or moisturizer containing any invisible contaminants.

Aerobic exercise. Among the many benefits of exercise is that it gets your legs moving, your heart beating faster, and your lungs breathing in and out at a healthy rate. Activities such as walking, running, yoga, cycling, and climbing benefit the circulatory system and help keep toxins moving, ultimately leading to their elimination from the body.

Avoid buying products containing BPA and phthalates. Phthalates are a group of eight different compounds that mimic hormones. They are added to plastics to make them more flexible (such as shower curtains), or to make candles or personal care products last longer. A chemical known as bisphenol A (BPA) is used in the manufacturing industry to make polymers stiff and shiny. Both substances behave similarly to hormones and can marry off babies as well as cause cancer later in life.

Your diet should include more nutrient-dense foods. Instead of processed, fried, or artificial flavors and colors, you should be thinking about foods like kale, broccoli, spinach, blueberries, and almonds. These meals provide the body with the vitamins and minerals needed to increase energy levels, improve overall health, and maintain a healthy weight. Making a green smoothie daily is a great way to make eating these foods easier.

With our bodies facing such an enormous toxic load, it is imperative to reduce exposure to harmful substances as much as possible for humans. It was from this concept that Sally B was born many years ago. Our contribution to a healthy lifestyle, which includes yours and ours, is the production of non-toxic products created from natural and organic ingredients. You can rest assured that Sally B’s products are good for both your skin and your health, unlike the potentially harmful options that are so common in the beauty department.
