What's sinking into my skin?!

I'm so aware of tiny particles. I believe there are so many things that we can't see and being aware of that does change how I live in this modern society. Take lotions for example. Most of those ingredients are preservatives or created in a lab. That stuff sinks in! I can't imagine how many heavy metals or tiny particles enter our body just through our skin in our daily lives. I've been making home made, all natural and organic creams and lotions for a little while now and I can't tell you how happy it makes me. I love the feel of it on my skin. I love how I don't have to question what is going into my body. It just feels good.

I recently whipped up a batch of face cream and lip balm. I had my Mom as a guinea pig for the face cream when I was coming up with a recipe and I can't believe her transformation. I notice it most in the morning, when she gets up. She comes out into the living room and her face is glowing. Moisturizer applied every day really does seem to reduce wrinkles! These ingredients I keep using are filled with vitamin E, emollient and have so many minute particles that we can't measure and don't know about yet in modern science.

What do you love about your skincare regimen?
