Tips for Lips - How To Treat Cracked Lips

I think it’s fair to say WINTER is finally here! Are you experience more than normal dry skin, due to the brutal cold winds? Last week on the Dr. Oz show he mentioned how important it is to keep your body moisturized during the winter months.  He also said showering with hot water will dehydrate the skin. So, turn down the HOT water, and use warm water when bathing and showering. 

The key to combating dry skin is moisturizing. The first step is to exfoliate to remove the barrier of dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin. Think about it, if you have a pile of dry skin the creams, butters or lotions will not be able to penetrate the skin, which will ultimate increase dryness of your skin. Therefore, this is why exfoliation is very important to include in your skin care regimen. Try to exfoliate at least 2-3 times per week to see results.  The next step is to cleanse your skin with a moisturizing soap, preferably soaps made with natural oils and butters (not the commercial bars found in stores). One of my customers shared with me that commercial soap dry out her skin. I recommended for her to use moisturizing soaps as I am recommending the same for you. Finally, after you have exfoliated and cleansed, you must now moisturized your skin.

One more tip….Do not forget to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily. Water will hydrate your skin as well. If you work out try to drink at least 12-15 glasses of water daily.

What Chemicals Are In Makeup

Let’s talk about our skin! Did you know your skin is the LARGEST organ of your body? Yep, so everything you are putting onto your skin is absorbed in your bloodstream. All the chemicals found in commercial soaps, body wash, lotions, creams, face and body moisturizers, hair products, make-up removers, lipsticks and even the products used to clean your home are all absorbed into your bloodstream. You see, the body cannot breakdown chemicals because they are not made to be digested by the body. Ultimately, this causes health issues or ailments for many people due to chemical buildup in the body. On the other hand, when using natural plant based ingredients, the body naturally pulls all nutrients and benefits from the ingredients, which the body can easily breakdown because this is what the body is designed to do. So, in simple terms, natural plant based ingredients are created for your skin.
The following are some chemicals known as parabens. They are widely found and used as preservatives in personal care, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries:
  • Methylparaben (methyl)
  • Propylparaben (propyl)
  • IIsoparaben
  • Butylparaben (butyl)
Parabens are a group of chemicals used to extend shelf life and due to its low cost is why most commercial companies use them to preserve products. Unfortunately, these chemicals are all linked to CANCER.

Here are a few more chemicals found in personal care products you SHOULD stay away from: 

  • Propylene Glycol is an industrial anti-freeze and the major ingredient in brake and hydraulic fluid. According to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on Propylene Glycol warn to avoid skin contact as it is systemic and can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.
  • Petroleum/Mineral Oil (by product of gas) comes from crude oil used in the industry as metal cutting fluid.  This chemical may suffocate the skin by forming an oil film (clogging your pores). Healthy skin needs to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide.
The question lately has been “Why is there a high increase in CANCER”…well think about the chemicals you are putting onto your skin and ultimately entering your bloodstream!
Don’t take my word for it…please do your own make up research on harmful chemicals in products you are using and the harm they are causing.

If you're ready to break away from using chemical based skincare products, then we invite you to visit us on the web at www.NaturalWorldEssentials.com or call us at (877) 326-2009.  We offer a complete line of natural bath and body skincare products that are all made with pure, wholesome ingredients found in your very own kitchen.

Natural Skin Care Blog - Natural World Essentials

Welcome to Natural World Essentials first BLOG POST….YAY! I would first like to introduce myself, I am Nickola Jones the Founder of Natural World Essentials. I founded this company in a desperate need of a nature based solution for my daughter’s eczema. My daughter, who will be 3 yrs old in October, was diagnosed at the age of seven months with eczema, and I was given a prescription by her pediatrician to treat her condition. However, I did not feel comfortable with putting the chemicals of the prescription onto my baby’s skin. So, I decided to research “natural remedies for eczema”, and found a wealth of great information on how to naturally treat this skin condition and my journey had began. During my research, I found articles and information on how to make handmade soap, body butter, body wash, body oil and Natural World Essentials was born.
