DIY Natural Face Wash | Reduce Acne and Scarring
I'm a big believer in cleansing from the inside out. What you eat and what is happening internally (emotions, hormones, stress, etc) shows up on your face. We can use all the latest anti-aging products we want but lifestyle is the most important factor when searching for soft, hydrated, and clear skin. While all that is true, what we use topically is extremely important because our skin is our largest organ. Our porous skin absorbs anything we put on it. That includes water, skincare, makeup, lotions, environmental toxins, the list goes on. So if there are toxins and chemicals in those products they go deep into the skin layers and are absorbed into the bloodstream which then loads up the liver and can cause havoc on hormones.
Along with that, having a pure face wash that removes make up, reduces inflammation and redness, clears acne and leaves your face moisturized is a must! All these ingredients are non toxic and chemical free. You can snag most of them on the Shop My Favorites tab.
