The average woman uses about twelve personal care products every day. That means she is applying a harmful chemical cocktail to her body every day. Many of the chemicals in personal care products can, at the least, cause allergic reaction, irritate the skin, disrupt hormones and at the worst lead to cancer. These chemicals also flow out of bathroom drains and into the environment. It is simple and satisfying to make your own personal care products such as cleansers, deodorants, moisturisers, bath oils, body lotions, exfoliators and shampoos. This is an ideal opportunity to discover how beneficial herbs can be when used externally because apart from enhancing your natural beauty they are also extremely helpful with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
