I’ve talked about bad chi in your home and your mindset, but what about the bad chi in the things you are putting on your body? Why should you care about the ingredients in your cosmetics and cleaners? Because what you put on your body gets absorbed into your skin. So do you want your products to be clean or toxic?
You’ve probably heard about this topic, but you’ve put it on the back shelf because it seems overwhelming and too much information to research on your own. Or maybe you just don’t want to give up that perfect eyeliner you love! But this is not something you can ignore anymore, it is too important and now there is an easy app that brings all the information to your fingertips! Just this week I came across a new app called ThinkDirty. It’s an app that helps you determine how clean or toxic your beauty and cleansing products are.
You are probably familiar with a website called EWG with the same philosophy and information but it is so comprehensive and not always user-friendly. ThinkDirty is super quick and easy to use to compare your products with what is clean and what is dirty!
For me I eat clean, workout and meditate, but I still struggle with hormonal imbalances. I wonder if it could be what I am putting on my skin? I try to use non-toxic beauty products, I love my Pratima Skincare line, an ayurvedic line of skincare products made from natural organic oils, but I haven’t found the perfect makeup and hair care products that I feel 100% confident are clean, in fact by looking on ThinkDirty, I discovered many I thought were clean actually are not!
Yep, I’m not going to call out these well known brands that scream how non-toxic and eco-friendly they are, but their secret is out. I simply downloaded this free app and took out all my cleaning products and simply scanned each product and received a rating of clean or toxic. Not happy to learn that most of my hair care and some makeup was high on the toxicity levels. This may explain my allergy and hormonal struggles.
Here’s the best part once you scan the product and see the ingredients that are toxic, you can explore the products similar to this product but find the clean versions of them.
Now, I consider this a work in progress and you don’t have to dump all your stuff at once. I suggest, scan a couple of items first then find better alternatives and put them into your “like” list on the app and then here’s the fun part – go shopping! The app does allow you to shop online but I prefer in store. Yesterday, I went over to Whole Foods and was having fun using the scanner on the phone and boy it was disheartening to see how many products were not as clean as they claim, but it did feel good to know I wasn’t wasting my money!
So I encourage you, especially if you’ve been struggling with health problems, allergies, fatigue, brain fog, and illnesses to download this app and clean up your cosmetic and cleaning products to ensure you are putting things that are healthy on your body.
Let me know if you download the app – www.thinkdirtyapp.com – and your experience. If you would like me to share some of my favorite clean products, hit reply and say, “Yes send me a list!”
Keeping you on the track for a good life!
