You massage your skin daily with ointments, creams, ointments! Do you know that there is a much more natural alternative?
There is a good chance that in your bathroom you will have a number of ointments, creams or ointments bought in pharmacies or perfumeries to maintain and care for your skin and hair. Next to that, in an adjoining room, your kitchen in this case, you certainly have a few bottles of oil, be it olive, sunflower, sesame, or grapeseed oil, oils that you use daily for cooking and seasoning.
First, I would suggest that you take a close look at the ingredient labels of the various ointments, creams and ointments you have in your bathroom and compare them to the list of ingredients in the oils you have in your bathroom. your kitchen. I don't think I'm wrong in saying up front that the list of ingredients in your bathroom products is much longer than the list of oils you use daily in your kitchen.
Secondly, I will suggest that you identify each ingredient in the list of products for your bathroom. As an example, I will take the case of "paraffinum liquidum" or "mineral oil" or "white paraffin" or "petrolatum", an element that is likely to appear on the list of ingredients in the product you are using. If you do not know the origin and the properties of this product, I invite you googling the name of this product on your computer to identify it. You will then see that it is a derivative of hydrocarbons. Do you feel comfortable coating your body with a product extracted from petroleum or even oil shale? If this is not the case, continue your research about other ingredients whose properties you do not know in order to know more precisely what they are and better
realize what you put on your body. I would not be surprised if you are really surprised by the result of this investigation to the point of asking yourself the question of whether you should continue to use these products as you have done so far.
Now do the same with the vegetable oils you have in your kitchen. I think you will immediately realize the difference they present in their composition with the products in your bathroom. A list of ingredients that generally mentions the oil in question as the only ingredient.
All that to say that it is always important to read the labels carefully and to be informed about the content of the products that we use and that we consume. This is an area where you have to be curious to take charge and not let yourself be influenced too much by marketing and packaging. This is the basis of a responsible life and an important step towards living in well-being and harmony.
Now you will tell me what relationship can there be between products developed by teams of researchers, biologists and aestheticians and sold in the most sophisticated containers and simply cold-pressed vegetable oils in quantities that are measured in tons and sold in liter bottles? It is precisely that there is a very close link between the products in your bathroom and those in your kitchen. As mentioned above, you have purchased those salves, creams and ointments that sit in your bathroom to protect, maintain and care for your skin. However, it turns out that some of the oils in your kitchen can also be used as body oils and that they will have the most beneficial effects on your well-being and especially on your skin and hair.
Indeed, the list of vegetable body oils with beneficial properties is long: olive oil, sweet almond oil, linseed oil, St. John's wort oil, avocado oil, macadamia oil, aloe vera oil, and many others. All have their virtues. Some are good for our skin, just by protecting them against external aggressions, wind, cold, particles, …. Others nourish our skin, giving it suppleness, shine and radiance. Some have the power to reduce pain: muscle pain, burns, bruises, insect bites and others... Finally, some are all indicated to maintain and restore life to our hair.
The properties of natural oils are many and varied. To name just a few, note that they can be: curative, healing, soothing, softening, nourishing, softening, toning. So many qualifiers that can only encourage us to adopt them as part of our daily lifestyle. Adoption made even more attractive by the fact that they are generally much cheaper than cosmetic products fulfilling the same functions and sold in pharmacies, perfumeries or supermarkets. Another advantage, for a price difference that is sometimes insignificant given the small quantities used daily, you can be sure to use oils of irreproachable quality, first cold pressing and certified organic.
This should encourage you to use these natural vegetable oils to maintain and care for both your skin and your hair. I would strongly advise you to be sure to buy first cold pressed and organic virgin oils. Given the quantities used, this choice will only result in a minimal additional cost compared to the benefits to your health.
I therefore propose in a future news item to give you some suggestions on the use of vegetable oils to protect, maintain and care for your skin and your hair.
