Luxury Holistic Face Treatment

It is now widely recognised that our skin absorbs many of the ingredients included in cosmetics. On Natural Facial in Rochester Medway kentone hand this is good, because it means our skin can be nourished with some wonderful natural ingredients but on the other hand the news is bad, because many skin care products contain harmful chemical ingredients we would never be allowed to take orally, but are still absorbed into the blood stream through our skin. It is estimated that the average woman applies 175 different chemicals to her body in the form of cosmetics every day and will eat two pounds of lipstick in her lifetime! The majority of these products contain a mind-boggling cocktail of industrially produced synthetic chemicals, which can cause a range of conditions from skin allergies to more serious medical conditions.
