2020 is off and running. I remember being in college and saying to my friends, “Holy sh**, I’m going to be THIRTY-FOUR in the year 2000!” (Said with the tone of, “Geez, I’m going to have one foot in the grave by 2000!”) And here I am looking at “2020” on my calendar. Time certainly does fly when we’re having fun.

Body Sass: Something SK-INteresting

 

Over my holiday break (which was FANtabulous) I was able to get into Gunther von Hagens’ Body Worlds exhibit at Boston’s Museum of Science. It was fascinating. Among other visual intriguements, I was reminded about the brilliance of our largest organ. Nope, not our brain (3rd largest). Nope, not our liver (2nd largest). Our SKIN.

Yes, your skin is an organ. It’s our largest and heaviest organ which, among other things:

  • Acts as a barrier to micro-organisms
  • Keeps us from drying out
  • Regulates our temperature
  • Provides us with info about our environment

…and is the only organ that directly interfaces with our environment. Which is all great and snazzy, except that folks miss the fact that our skin is like a giant mouth. Meaning, our skin absorbs things that then get incorporated into our body via our vascular system. Nutrients and chemicals that come into contact with our skin become part of our physiology. I was surprised the exhibit didn’t mention this, so decided to share it here.

This skin-as-giant-mouth concept can be great if you’re soaking in an Espom Salt bath; those minerals make our body happy! However, many of the personal care products we use contain creepy ingredients that make our body very sad. The average man uses 5-7 personal care products per day, while the average woman uses 9-12 and the average teenage girl uses SEVENTEEN. And there is very little regulation in place as to what companies can put in these products.

Given the skin-as-giant-mouth idea, this is pretty disturbing and the scores of chemical ingredients contained therein can greatly interfere with our Body Sass®. A great place to learn more and to search up on all kinds of personal care products that you’re using, and uncover how safe they are (or not), is the Skin Deep® Database at EWG.org. 

Information can indeed be powerful. An easy way to get started is to search the database for your personal care products until you find one with a disturbing rating (won’t likely take long). Then, replace just that ONE product this month. Next month, search and replace another. Rinse and repeat.
