What you will learn this week

How to Develop Natural Beauty?

I think most of us would like to look and feel our best, whether we are a man or a woman.

It's a little more challenging with sensitive skin, and so many of the product we would like to use end up making us look or feel worse!

Some of this lesson will educate you and empower you to make smarter and healthier choices about that ...

But there is a whole other level I'd like to address here.

This course isn't just about helping you to find less irritating creams or lotions for your face, or better makeup.

It's helping you to develop a stronger and more lasting form of natural beauty which comes from within.

Have you ever seen a wild animal up close? If you are lucky enough to see it in the woods or in their natural habitat, you will notice that they are usually radiant and healthy looking.

They are in harmony with their environment and it shows in their appearance.

This course will help you to develop a lasting, natural inner radiance which reflects the beauty of your inner being.

Why Cleanse and Purify?

Cleansing and purifying helps us to create a strong foundation for natural inner and outer beauty. It also has many benefits for your sensitive skin and your appearance!
  • You will decrease the eruptions and breakouts on your skin.

  • Your circulation will improve, which will bring color and radiance to your complexion.

  • You will increase your vitality and energy levels.
Did you know that your skin is one of the elimination systems of your body>

It tends to erupt when the other elimination systems such as the colon get sluggish or clogged.

Although no one likes to talk about this, poor elimination isn't just an inconvenience. It is downright bad for your good looks!

Poor elimination can create skin eruptions and break outs, bad breath, body odor, and tiredness.

Over many years poor elimination leads to an overall decline in health which leaves you more vulnerable to chronic disease.

Cleansing Your Body

Cleansing your body starts with your intentions. Is there "excess baggage" in your life that you feel you need to let go of?

Having an intention to let go will help you to cleanse and purify your body. You will look AND feel like a huge weight has been lifted!

A simple and natural way to cleanse your body is to simply increase the amount of pure water that you are drinking.

A good guideline is to drink half your body weight in ounces each day. So if you weigh 150 lbs., drink 75 ounces of water each day.

Be sure to drink pure water, so that your body can have the full benefit of cleansing. If your water is chlorinated, get a filter to remove the chlorine from your drinking water and also from your shower.

Drink a glass or two when you first get up in the morning, which helps continue the cleansing process that happens at night when you sleep.

Another simple way to cleanse your body is by eating plenty of raw fruits and vegetables each day.

I recommend that you start slowly, by adding one new serving of fruit and one new serving of vegetables a day. Do this for a week and see how you feel.

If it is going well, increase to two extra pieces of fresh fruit and two extra servings of vegetables each day. Try that for a week and see how you feel!

When your body receives the nutrients it needs, it can begin to "detox" your body of chemical residues. Sometimes you will feel headachey, cranky, or extra tired when you begin to cleanse your body.

If this happens, drink more pure water and find some time to rest and allow your body to pass through this cleansing phase.

We will address cleansing in more detail in Lesson #4, as it is so important to your health and your natural beauty!

Natural Beauty Action Step #1

Cleansing What You Put on Your Body

Now, I'm going to show you how to learn the truth about the ingredients in the products you are using on your hair, skin and body.

After all that pure water and healthy fruits and vegetables, you want to be sure that you are not adding MORE toxins to your body!

With this information you will be fully empowered to make choices about what products and substances you want put on your body.

When you finish this Action Step You will be able to evaluate your personal care products.

You will know how to learn which products and product lines are less toxic and with less possibility for irritating to your skin, disrupting the delicate hormonal and endocrine systems of your body, and creating a build up toxicity in your body.

First, learn about some of the basic ingredients that we recommend you avoid if you have sensitive skin, here at our Safe Cosmetics Guide.

I will show you a simple way to quickly check the ingredients in your skin care and personal products, so you can eliminate those that are more toxic or more likely create more inflammation and irritation on your skin.

  1. Go to the online Cosmetics Database.

  2. Enter into the search box the name of a personal care or skin care product you use. For example, let's enter "Clairol Nice and Easy Hair Color"

  3. Press the "GO" button and you'll be brought to this page with your search results.

  4. Now, look at the right hand side of the page under "Hazard Score".

  5. Products are rated from 0 to 10 in terms of toxcity, with 10 being most toxic and 0 being least toxic. Click the links to see a detailed explanation.

Any hazard score in red is considered a High Hazard should be avoided as it contains a LOT of toxic ingredients. That's why it has a red light!

A rating in yellow is considered Moderately Hazardous. If you have sensitive skin, or tend to have chronic health challenges, I recommend you avoid those products as well.

They contain ingredients that cause inflammation and irritation, and sometimes hormone disruption and organ toxicity which can cause acne breakouts and sensitive skin eruptions.

A green rating will generally be free of most irritating ingredients. This does not mean that YOUR sensitive skin will like the products that are rated green, but there is a much better chance that they will not irritate your skin.

A note about products in the Cosmetics Database - sometimes companies do not update this database with their most recent products. In this case you may get results for products that are not longer in their product line.

What if Your Product Isn't In the Cosmetics Database?

If this is the case, you have two choices.

One, you can look up the company to see if they are listed in the database. If so, there may be some similar products listed.

Your second choice is to look at the label of your shampoo or skin care product. When you find an ingredient that sounds like it could be irritating, type it into the search box.

Click "GO" and you'll get a search results page for that ingredient, along with a hazard rating. Again, I recommend choosing ingredients that are "green lights".

Sometimes you can't find an ingredient, but you can find a similar one.

What Did you Discover?

What did you learn from looking up your products on the cosmetic database? How did your products rate? Were you surprised?

I know sure was!! I discovered my 'pure and natural' laundry detergent is actually quite allergenic!!

Are there healthier product choices you could make?
