Applications of Ionized Acid Water: Body, Skin & Hair

 

Your body is constantly struggling to achieve alkaline-acid balance, just like it must always be regulating its temperature. Your blood must remain slightly alkaline at 7.365 pH 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to survive.

When we continuously consume acidic food and drinks, our body has to compensate by borrowing alkaline minerals from places like our eyes, bones and teeth in order to combat the acidity (and thus prevent death).

A healthy body is slightly alkaline on the inside and slightly acidic (to fight off viruses and bacteria) on the outside. But most people are struggling with an overacidic internal environment, and overly alkaline skin. An overacidic internal environment can lead to weight gain and diseases of all kinds, while overly alkaline skin may reveal itself in the form of pimples, fungus, skin conditions like rashes, etc.

One solution is to drink ionized alkaline water and eat more alkaline foods (vegetables, non-sweet fruits, nuts and seeds) which will help combat the internal acidity and naturally help correct the external problem. Another solution for the skin, body and hair is to topically apply ionized acid water in order to achieve alkaline-acid balance externally. You can get both types of ionized water (alkaline and acid) from a water ionizer for pennies on the gallon.

Ionized acid water with a pH of 5.5 is a natural astringent with antibacterial properties that can also reduce inflammation. The Japanese refer to it as “beauty water” because it is so beneficial for the skin, and those who wash with it tend to look younger and healthier than those who using ordinary tap water or even expensive beauty products.

Here are some of the many applications of ionized acid water on the body, skin and hair:

What Toxic Chemicals Are Lurking in Your Beauty Products?

You wouldn’t knowingly apply formaldehyde or lead to your face, would you? Slather on a toxic cocktail of cancer-causing ingredients in the name of beauty?

Unfortunately, particularly if you are a woman, chances are that you already have. Many times over.

Consider these alarming statistics:

-The average woman wears nearly 515 chemicals a day.

-More than 10,000 chemicals are approved for use in personal care products, over 850 of which have been determined to be toxic.

-Our skin absorbs 60% of every chemical we apply.

-EWG conducted a study of 20 teen girls and found that they had an average of 13 hormone-altering cosmetic chemicals in their bodies.

-An FDA study found lead in 100% of lipsticks tested.

-Research conducted by EWG confirmed that nearly 22% of all personal care products–including children’s–contain the cancer-causing contaminant 1,4-dioxide.

-95% of the chemicals used in perfumes and colognes come from petroleum.

-The average woman will eat nearly 4 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime.

-The U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that 37% of makeup tested contains cancer-causing nitrosamines.

So remember, it’s not just what we put in our bodies, but also what we put on them.

Here’s a list of the most common cosmetic ingredients to avoid and why:

Petroleum is a crude oil substance that comes from the ground and can be very toxic. It can be difficult for your body to eliminate, and block the body from releasing toxins causing a buildup in various organs of the body.

Toluene is a petroleum by-product found in nail polish and cosmetics which can affect brain function and the central nervous system, as well as interfere with fetal and childhood development.

Lead is a highly toxic heavy metal which has been linked to neurological problems, blood disorders, depression, and behavior and learning disabilities in children.

Aluminum is a toxic metal that can be found in everything from deodorant to shampoo. May disrupt the function of the endocrine system, and have estrogen-like effects.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like synthetic formaldehyde cause indoor air pollution which is toxic to the liver and carcinogenic.

Parabens are synthetic preservatives which have been linked to severe allergies and endocrine system interruption. Over 25,000 beauty products catalogued by the Environmental Working Group contain parabens.

Diethanolamine (DEA) and ethanolamine (TEA) combine with other chemicals to produce cancer-causing compounds known as nitrosamines.

Imidazolidinyl urea and diazolidinyl urea are preservatives which release cancer-causing formaldehyde.

Artificial colorants are known cancer-causing agents. (Appears as FD&C or D&C followed by a color name and a number on the label).

“Fragrance” (usually petrochemicals) can damage the central nervous system, depression, hyperactivity, irritability, inability to cope, behavioral damages, headaches, dizziness, rashes, hyper-pigmentation, vomiting, coughing, and skin irritation.

Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a common foaming agent used in shampoo and soap which causes eye irritations, skin rashes, hair loss, changes to DNA, and allergic reactions.
