What is going to be provided, is the Blueprint to what I feel is necessary to obtaining natural healthy glowing skin. So let's build the foundation before diving into the depths of the benefits of what I'm going to share with you. For starters, let's discuss what exactly are Essential Oils. Essential oils are highly concentrated versions of the natural oils found in plants. These oils are extracted from the plants by the process of distillation. Using essential oils for healing purposes is often called aromatherapy, which is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental and emotional health.
Now in order for these plants and trees to fully mature and bear fruit they had to grow. Just like our own bodies, plants need thirteen different minerals from the soil in order to fully develop. Six of these nutrients are needed in large quantities. These six Essential Nutrients are nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur and calcium. The same Essential Nutrients that are required for many of our bodies natural required functions.
History has shown that Ancient Egyptians kept their skin vibrant and flawless with just the application of oils. Essential Oils are lipophilic which allow them to penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water, nutrients and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins out. Many well renowned dermatologists feel that facial oils may be that missing step in your facial care routine.
Essential Oils have stood the test of time with providing benefits that beautify the skin by providing so many nutrients and many more. For example the linoleic acid and oleic acids found in oils can’t be produced by the body but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-aging. With the proper formulations, Essential Oils also help to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier and they can be much more effective at moisturizing than your standard over-the-counter lotions and creams.
Have you ever stopped to look at all the ingredients on the back of the products you apply to your face? Looks something like (Methalaei23-, Yfuk-it413n0, 1La.CfdTF-9 and then the word "Fragrance") You're likely to find Triclosan, which can disrupt the Thyroid hormone as well several others and increased exposure can contribute to the development of breast cancer and more. You will also find "fragrance", which is usually a safe word for (Phthalates) a chemical which can cause birth defects and liver damage. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton most recently signed a bill legalizing a measure banning Triclosan -containing products in the state. The law went into effect January 1, 2017. There are so many chemicals that are used in nearly all "moisturizers'' sold in stores today.
The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet. Whatever you do decide to use 60% of it will be absorbed into your bloodstream through your skin. More than 10,000 “ingredients” are allowed for use in personal care products and the average woman wears 515 of them every day, according to a 2009 British study that looked at the routines of over 2,000 women. VERY little is known about the health effects of these chemicals. More than 90% have never been tested for their effects on human health, and complete toxicity data are available for ONLY 7% of them. Even though government agencies are aware of the health hazards of some ingredients, such as hydroquinone or phthalates, they are still allowed in personal care products.
The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet. In essence Our skin protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. The skin has three layers: The Epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. The Dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands. The deeper subcutaneous tissue (The Hypo-Dermis) is made of fat and connective tissue.
The epidermis also hosts different types of cells: keratinocytes and Langerhans cells. Keratinocytes produce the protein known as Keratin, the main component of the epidermis. The skin is a very awesome complex organ comprising of numerous specialized cells that simply put help support skin function.
For example, nutritional support for the regenerating epidermis and dermis layers of the skin during the latter stages of wound healing is not only important in long-term wound resolution but will promote the restoration of strong, healthy skin. In order for us to enjoy the benefits of EO's we need to remember that our body does not just solely absorb nutrients through the digestion of food in the gut, but also through our skin.
Again, your skin absorbs about 60% of materials that are applied or exposed to the skin (topically). Nutrients or other materials can be either natural (found in nature) or chemical (produced as a chemical compound or synthetically), and in this respect, skin nutrient strategies or products are a significant preventative lifestyle requirement in the modern era of exposure to chemical pollution in food, soil, water and the air. It's just the world we live in now!
While the chemical, biological and structural design of the skin will slow absorption and limit penetration of some large molecules through the skin, along with limiting the loss of vital nutrients and water from the underlying tissue; the skin is a primary pathway for absorption of nutrients and water.
Blood vessels that supply nutrients for all skin layers are found in the skin dermis layer. Also, new skin cells are continuously produced in the outer cells of the skin layer are enzymatically detached from this layer and then shed. Think dust! Therefore it's obvious that we must provide these nutrients topically and using the natural resources of the Earth. That’s the plus side of our body’s brilliant design. If you want healthier and younger looking skin, the "trick" is to topically feed your body as well with nutrient rich natural products instead of chemical products that introduce unwanted toxins into your system.
