Did you know that your skin is your body's largest organ? It serves as one of the major exit places for toxins that may build up in your body. In addition, your skin will protect your body from the earth's elements, if you treat it right.
Use a good natural moisturizer on your skin all year round. A moisturizer acts as a protective layer, and aids in keeping your skin hydrated. Failure to do so may speed up the skinís aging process, because your collagen structure may become damaged due to a lack of moisture. The end result could be a lifetime of fine lines and wrinkles all over the body.
So, go moisturize your skin!
We're not merely using words to get your attention - we really want you to Make The Connection. Abike's former slogan was, "pamper your mind, pamper your body and pamper your spirit." Today, we say, "love yourself, respect your body, and nurture your soul." because what you put in is what you get out.
A healthy lifestyle requires balance. What you put into it is what you get out of it. The vibration you put out you also attract. That's basically how the Law of Attraction works. It involves the alignment of your thoughts and intentions, your relationship with The Creator/Your Source. Simply put, you are what you think you are.
When you are out of balance, stress puts wear and tear on your mind and body.
A healthy lifestyle requires a good diet. Get back to eating raw foods. We live in a world where many of the foods we eat are processed, processed with pesticides and injected with hormones. We are pressed for time and want less time in the kitchen. We have not made the connection that the long-term use of pesticides, and the ingestion of hormone-injected meats and foods processed with preservatives compromises our health. In the meantime, our physical health suffers and pays the price. It shows up in the form of food allergies, lactose intolerance, and skin diseases such as chronic dry skin, eczema and dermatitis.
Today, childhood obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer are as common as the seasonal cold. Why? What we read and watch on television would lead you to believe that our country is more advanced than we were 30 years ago. If that is so, why are more people suffering from so many different diseases?
Make the Connection. This concept applies to the body care products you use on your skin. Also, most skin care products on the market today contain toxic chemicals, which are harmful to our short-term and long long-term health.
The common thing we all share is our water supply, the air we breathe, and our basic food supply. Are you making the connection? You have to question everything and not rely on EPA saying your air quality is safe or the FDA saying the food supply is safe, or your local government saying your water supply is safe. Who is it safe for? What determines a safe level? What can I do to make things safer for my family?
A healthy lifestyle is a choice. It requires the balancing of thoughts, diet and most importantly, accurate knowledge. Knowledge is power and you can't make wise decisions without accurate information. Read labels. The Internet is the most powerful research tool in the world.
Just remember: in all you do, what you put in is what you get out!
