Toximation (toxic oxidation/inflammation) is the process that damages your body, inside and out. Your skin is an outward reflection of this process, but the exact same process is involved in heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune conditions and Alzheimer’s. Oxidation is physical damage to cells of the skin and other organs in the body. Oxidation is caused by “free radicals”. Think of free radicals as sparks from a fire place. If they land on your skin, they would cause physical damage. In order to prevent this, you use a barrier in front of your fire place. Barriers used to prevent oxidation caused by the free radical sparks are called antioxidants. Sunlight will cause oxidative damage to your car dash and the outside paint. Armor All is an antioxidant for cars.

Your body has many natural antioxidants because the production of free radicals goes along with your body naturally burning sugar the same way sparks go along with burning wood. One major antioxidant for the body is vitamin C. Vitamin C absorbs free radicals and prevents damage from oxidation. Most animals make their own vitamin C in their livers. Humans do not. We must get vitamin C from our diets or use a supplement. As our diets have changed from fresh produce to chemicalized foods, people get less skin protection from vitamin C and other antioxidants plants use as sun screen. This is why even though humans have much less sun exposure than 100 years ago, we see more skin cancer.

So, sunlight and normal metabolism of sugar for energy are 2 sources of free radicals. The third primary source is your immune system. Your immune system is a quite literal “army”. Immune cells patrol your body trying to keep your critters under control. On a good day, you have 10 times more critters in and on you than normal cells. If critter numbers get out of control, your immune system goes to war. This war is called “inflammation”. Weapons of mass destruction used by your immune system cells include:  histamines, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, tumor necrosis factor and more. Conventionally, we use drugs that will block one or more of these chemicals. Antihistamines block histamine. Asthma drugs block leukotrienes. Steroid drugs shut down the immune system. Another weapon of the immune cells is free radicals. Certain immune system cells will spit out free radicals like a flame thrower. Problem is that not only critters are damaged by free radical, normal cells are too.

This leads us to a fairly simple solution not only for maintaining beautiful skin but also the health of cells inside our bodies. You must load your skin and body with natural antioxidants, and you must keep your critter levels down. This is the way to prevent wrinkles. It’s also the way to prevent Alzheimer’s and “heart attacks”. The Girl Friends combination of skin nutraceuticals does that for your skin. Use the Touch My Face soap to cleanse your face and kill critters. Argan, coconut, and olive oils have natural critter killers. The fats from these oils also contain building blocks for new skin cells. The I Mist You spray is a more powerful critter killer. There’s no doubt about this when you spray it on. The I Mist You 2 is a milder solution. These two also act as exfoliants, getting rid of dead skin cells and stimulating new cell growth. The vitamin C we use is “liposomal”. Liposomes are fat bubbles made from fats normally found in human cells. When these fat bubbles come in contact with your cells, they naturally melt into your normal cells, delivering whatever is contained inside. Vitamin C is not only an antioxidant. It also repairs oxidative damage and restores collagen–the skeleton of the skin. Use one squirt of the liposomal C mixed with one squirt of the Touch My Face Serum for face application. Touch My Face Serum contains building blocks for new skin cells. It also gives a protective critter killing effect throughout the day.
