The approaching new year is a time for evaluation. A time for thinking, "What needs to change in my life?" One of the more common new year resolutions is to be healthier and lead a more organic lifestyle. This is no easy feat, especially if trying to change everything all at once!
But there's no need to make serious commitments or radical decisions that might take too much effort to maintain. In fact, incorporating a few easy steps can really change your life! If you've ever read the book, "The Compound Effect", you'll know that it's not about making drastic changes but rather about making small decisions and consistency. Here are a few ideas for small changes you can implement:
#1 Reading Ingredient Labels
Flip that item over and READ! You'll be shocked at what you read... And it just might make you think twice before buying. Commercial soaps are mass produced and often contain harmful chemicals and detergents that are really not very “clean” after all. Instead of cleaning your body, they end up doing more harm than good. Have you read the ingredients on commercial soap packages? If so, you probably noticed a bunch of ingredients you can barely pronounce, let alone understand. Your skin is your largest organ so it’s important to take care of it. Why? Because what you put on your skin is directly absorbed into your body.
#2 Do Your Research
Ask a question and then do a little Googling. Like, "What are the chances that soybean oil is GMO?"
With thousands of products to choose from and hundreds of blogs, books, and infographics dedicated to educating and helping those with skin struggles, there's great advice and also some pretty popular myths.
We discovered many of these myths through trial and error when Chance, our third oldest son, was 5 years old and suffering from the bloody, raw, rashes of eczema. Our search for healing products sent us on a treasure hunt for creams, treatments, and expensive cures, eventually resulting in us creating our own natural goat's milk soap.
#3 Just Start Somewhere!
Start with diet? Start with exercise? Start with your skin care products? Cleaning products? Just start somewhere! One of the easiest New Year's resolutions for you to keep this year doesn't require discipline, budgeting, and virtually zero sacrifices. In fact, it's actually something many people consider to be fun and is one of the most rewarding changes you can make in your life! This resolution could even be helping to prevent dangerous diseases, like cancer. So, what is it?
This year, make the easy switch to taking care of your skin and avoiding dangerous toxins by purchasing all-natural goat milk soap. With just a few ingredients that are pure and nourishing, our soap helps your skin be healthy and smooth all year long.
