26 seconds is all it takes for chemicals to enter into your bloodstream
WHAT YOU PUT ON YOUR SKIN GETS ABSORBED INTO THE BLOODSTREAM. Most people think of their skin as a barrier. They see it as more of a shield that protects their internal body. While that is true to some extent, our skin is more like a door than a shield. Like a sponge, your skin absorbs what you put on it and then allows the ingredients of those products to circulate through your blood stream. Most over-the-counter bath and body products contain harsh chemicals, parabens and certain sulfates! A lot of these things are linked to cancer and other health problems. When you use skin care products that are not all natural, you are allowing these chemicals into your system day after day.
