The 80/20 concept is not a new one. This rule suggests that 20 percent of your activities will account for 80 percent of your results.
One of the simplest changes you can make for major impact is switch up the body products you are using. Our skin is our largest organ and the products we put on our body every day matter. When you use a body lotion daily, it sits on the skin and is absorbed into the bloodstream. By using natural products, you can feel good knowing that you are not exposing yourself to added chemicals and preservatives. Many of the ingredients considered safe in traditional skin care products are known endocrine disruptors. These chemicals can cause reproductive issues, increase your cancer risk and wreak havoc on your immune system. The more products with these chemicals that you are using, the higher toxic load you are placing on the body and can cause problems for you now or down the road.
