Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This toxin causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning called botulism. How Botox works in the facial rejuvenation industry is by weakening or paralysing certain muscles or in some forms of medicine by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three months for wrinkles. The most common side effects are pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. Flu-like symptoms, headache, and upset stomachs have been reported occasionally. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids.
Wildcrafted organic Australian botanicals and other extraordinary nutraceuticals from around the globe provide us with the ideal natural ingredients for skin care without the concerns of synthetic oestrogen compounds or toxic chemicals found in most commercial products.
Papaya Enzyme Mask
Papaya contain proteolytic (protein dissolving) plant enzymes called papain, that dissolve the top layer of dead skin cells and old scar tissue trapped in the pores. It is an ideal treatment for acne. The enzymes stimulate new cell turnover while digesting and removing the old impacted proteins in the pores, allowing the skin to regenerate again, improving skin texture and appearance.
Activated charcoal is a natural potent treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body cannot reabsorb them.
It is a fine black, odourless powder made from wood, coal or other materials such as nut shells that has been exposed to very high temperatures in an airless environment.
The product is then reheated or activated with oxidized gas creating a very fine powder increasing its ability to absorb various substances. Due to its incredibly large surface area, a small bit of charcoal can bind a tremendous amount. It is important to select activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources when considering uses as a natural skincare ingredient.
Worried about toxic skincare ingredients? Your skin is the largest organ in your body and what you place on your skin goes much deeper than the surface. The cosmetic industry uses thousands of synthetic chemicals in its products. As well as being toxic for the environment, unsurprisingly, many skin care ingredients are toxic for your overall health and well-being.
