Pink Floyd’s song, “Another Brick in the Wall” is as popular today as it was when first released in the 1970’s. The lyrics talk about education and at one point in the song the denoted teacher tells students “How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?” I think of our skin in the same way. How do you expect to have good skin if you don’t look after it and feed it the minerals that it needs?
The skin is the largest organ in our body. We absorb and excrete more elements through our skin than any other source in our body, other than our mouths. So how do we treat our skin? Most of the time we don’t treat it very well, it’s one of those areas that is overlooked. Our skin is the first impression the world sees about us. As we get older we strive to keep our skin younger looking, smooth, and with as few wrinkles as possible. Every year we spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars putting our best skin forward for everyone to see.
There is some truth to the saying beauty is skin deep. If we don’t have the best skin available, we don’t project our outer beauty, and then no one can see our true inner beauty. ??? – not sure I agree with this ?
As we carried out our research for the launch of Ojaván Products, one thing rang true every step of the way … our earth is the most glorious and beautiful thing we have and we need to respect and learn from it. The Great Salt Lake, once thought of as a dead area of water, is now looked at as a natural source of healing for mankind and is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year.
What I find wonderful about what we have re-discovered about the Great Salt Lake is that over 80 trace minerals and elements naturally occur in the waters and along the shores and these are all beneficial to the skin. Our skin absorbs these minerals and elements through topical application or bathing and we are feeding our skin what it needs to remain healthy. Over time skin will become softer and rejuvenated making it younger looking in appearance. The mineral mud will also pull out the toxins and dirt that become embed in our pores on a daily basis through environmental and airborne pollutants.
