Do Your Beauty Products Age Your Skin and Harm Your Health?

Even though the brand you use has words like “all natural” and “organic” on their bottle, the product can be loaded with chemicals, parabens, phthalates, nitrosamines, lead and other harmful ingredients that are absorbed through your skin. I can’t tell you how many times someone has called me asking to compare my lines with such and such product, and with rare exceptions, when I checked the ingredient list of their products, I found that they were far from organic or all natural. If fact, while there might be a few herbal ingredients listed, there were
plenty of unhealthy toxic ingredients.

There are no regulations in the beauty industry, so manufacturers can use any ingredients they want. And when you make products for mass consumption, you need those products to have a long shelflife. This means lots of chemicals and preservatives are added that are harmful to your health.

At InspiredLiving.com, before I decide to carry a product line, the first thing I look at is the ingredient list. I also verify the products with the Environmental Working Group’s online safety profiles for cosmetics and personal care products. They rate products based on the ingredients, and have three scoring ranges, the lower the score the safer the product:

  • 0-2 GREEN are the most safe products
  • 3-6 ORANGE for moderately safe products
  • 7-10 RED for hazardous products

All beauty and hygiene products carried by InspiredLiving.com fall within the 0-2 GREEN zone (except lip gloss, which is a 3)

Persistence is the key to success, but realize that this is not an overnight fix but a routine that may require three to six months. Using the Lazarus oil treatment along with the shampoo and conditioner will not disappoint.

P.S. My 91 year-old mother started using only the shampoo last December and I’ve already noticed a little change in the thickness of her hair. I’ve been using it for about 2 years now and love it.

Approved by the FDA for Pain Relief, Too.

Not only does the Deep Penetrating Light rejuvenate and improve skin, but it is also approved for pain relief by the FDA. And far infrared accelerates healing, something I took advantage of a month ago when I misstepped on a drainage bump and lost my balance getting out of a car. I fell on my hip on cement, and when I got into my house, I immediately gave my hip an 18 minute DPL treatment, followed by a dose of Transdermal Magnesium, which was then followed by ice. Amazingly, other than a massive bruise, I had no pain or problems with my hip.
