Every cosmetic company advocates more products, less nutritional concentration, and more layers to leave on your face all day... which adds more preservatives, gums, fillers and gunk sitting on your skin.
We've all been taught this flawed system for skin care: 1. Spray toner, 2. Vitamin C Serum, 3. Eye serum, 4. Toning Gel serum, 5. Face Cream, 6. Sunscreen, 7. Foundation, 8. Powder, 9. Blush, 10, Eye makeup and other makeup. For each of these layers, you're adding gels (made from gums), fillers, another preservative for each layer, and emulsifiers (waxes that bind water & oil so it doesn't separate). All of these layers sit on your skin night and day.
Skin Care Companies Prey on Women's Insecurities
Many skin care and cosmetic companies are promoting this flawed system not because it helps your skin... it is to put more money in their pockets. The more products you buy from them, the more money they make. But what if there is a different way? What if skin care could be a nutritional supplement for your skin instead of layers of toxic preservatives mixed with fillers?
We as conscious men and women need to look carefully at what we put in and on our bodies. The fact is, many people are on to the truth about toxins in skin care... but are not getting the entire picture of what is wrong with the skin care industry. We want organic products, but fail to see that many organic skin creams still have pore-clogging emulsifying waxes, fillers and preservatives as a non organic skin cream.. even if these so called organic products include some high quality ingredients.
Let me ask a question here. Who decided cream was a good thing anyway?
