4. Shower Gel
Shower gel is a purchase you can refrain from next time you go shopping. You might wonder what the substitute for shower gel is. The answer would be soap. Use olive soap instead of shower gel. Olive oil contains nutrients and vitamins, softens your skin and does not damage it. On the other hand, most shower gels contain diethanolamine, lauryl sulphate, and parabens that penetrate into your skin, are absorbed into the blood stream and do harm to brains and inner organs. Your skin might feel a little bit dry after soap, but this is normal and after a short period of time you will get used to this healthier alternative.
