Whole30 Notes (Day24)

By now, the old adage of "you are what you eat" is starting to ring true. The vibrant healthy foods you are putting inside your body are starting to show on the outside. Now that you are scrutinizing your food, consider doing the same thing with your personal care and household products.

On average, adults come in contact with over 100 ingredients daily to their skin. Many common products contain toxins; take a look at the labels! For example, formaldehyde, petroleum by-products, lead and mercury can be found in cosmetics, beauty products and household cleaners. Experiment with making your own using items you probably already have in your pantry, like vinegar and water instead of glass cleaner and coconut oil as a hair/skin moisturizer.
