We have a Tox-Sick problem.
There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market that have never been properly studied to see if they are toxic to our health and theWorld Health Organization, reporting a rise in the prevalence of chronic disease to 57% by the year 2020.
With the link between toxicity and chronic disease undisputed. We are more conscious now than ever about the importance of health and well being, For many, this is limited to diet and exercise.
The evidence shows, these toxins are getting everywhere, They are in our environment, our foods and our water supply and even our personal care products.
What you put on your body is just as important to what you put in your body
Which is why I would like to introduce to you today the first two product in our range of Armorvida skin care
My name is Kirsty, Kirsty Terry and I’m a functional medicine practitioner, I’ve been working with clients with chronic health conditions linked digestive issues for the last 10 years. I work from a biomedical standpoint, so I’m looking at the underlying issues, at the root cause, and helping toget those chemicals out, Plays a big part.
I want to share the importance of caring for your skin as one of the essential barriers to freedom from future health challenges.
So let me share with you three important pieces of information.
1)The role of the skin
2)Why cosmetics can harm
3)How Armorvida solves this problem.
1)The role of the skin in protecting the body against the dangers of the outside world cannot be overemphasized. It is one of the most important organs in our bodies and therefore, it deserves ultimate care. Having luscious, beautiful and healthy skin is attractive and a sign of greater health within.
The skin is usually the body’s first line of defence against harmful invasions as it repels toxins and destroys pathogens, using it’s own internal army of biological weapons such as the Langerhans cells, macrophages and other cells that are part of the skin immune system present in the epidermis.
2)Why are cosmetics are problem and Why should you care?
An EWG 2004 consumer survey has shown that women use an average of about twelve personal care products a day and that exposes them to more than 160 chemical ingredients. men use an average of six a day, exposing themselves to more than 80 unique ingredients.
I’ve noticed in my practice is, these skincare products that contain harmful or even toxic ingredients contributing to many of the modern-day skin complaints.
The effects are not only uncomfortable for my clients, they can also be unsightly, and affect confidence and self-esteem.
Why should you care?
The cosmetics industry is largely unregulated and a self-policing industry.
Most cosmetic marketing claims are unregulated, and descriptions such as “hypoallergenic” or “natural” can “mean anything or nothing at all”.
Products labelled natural or organic often contain synthetic chemicals, and even truly natural or organic ingredients are not necessarily risk-free.
A study showed by the EWG on a drug store’s top selling moisturizer, tested one ingredient , ‘parfum/fragrance’. – the average fragrance product, contained 14 secret chemicals not listed on the label. Among them are toxic chemicals associated with hormone disruption and allergic reactions.
There are a whole host of other toxic ingredients and links to health conditions, too many to mention in this short video, however check out the graphic on the Top 10 worst offenders.
Which brings me to Armorvida skincare, we call it ‘intensive skinmunology nutrition.
Armorvida is an innovative and luxurious brand of skincare products that combine high-quality nutrition for the skin with a unique proprietory nano protein blend.
With the nanotechnology in Armorvida’s protein processes, these products are designed to nourish the immune cells so they can work to improve overall skin health and reduce aging at the cellular level.
Additionally, Armorvida’s products source the best ingredients we can find to ensure they are natural and chemical free. Our products are vegan, not tested on animals, and they are paraben and sulphate free. They cater to the needs of all skin types like silky smooth skin, dry skin, and so many others.
Among the full range of products planned, there are two initially that stood out as being important to introduce to your daily skincare routine.
Frank, intensive massage cream.
Our face exposed to the environment come rain or shine, and how we face the outside world, so we have Rose, anti-aging face cream.
And understanding the importance of lymphatic drainage in the removal of toxins and the role of the Vegus nerve in the communication pathways, so we have Frank, intensive massage cream.
We can all do our bit to reduce our toxin exposure, when it comes to the skin, and I would love you support my campaign.
