You have undoubtedly heard about the effects of eating organic. And just as you now probably study food labels more closely, you should learn to study beauty product labels more closely. Upon examination of your beauty products at home, are there words that have about 17 syllables that you can’t pronounce? Things like “hydroxyethylaminoranisole”? (Yeah, that’s a real thing.) Well, it’s time to get back to basics with your beauty products.
Organic skin care is actually easy to detect because most organic brands are very good about labeling their things accordingly. Things you should see on their labels: rose oil extract, shea butter, aloe vera, chamomile, lemongrass and vitamin C. All of these things sound familiar and that’s because they’re natural and have really powerful effects in the right amounts for your skin. The trouble with chemical skin care is that it tries to change your skin using harsh man-made components. This gets absorbed into your skin and therefore, exists in your body. Sounds gross, right? But what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it, so why not put on natural products that will help balance, soothe and illuminate your skin?
Some people say that organic skin care products just aren’t as strong, and therefore less effective, but it’s not true. Just because they’re gentle doesn’t mean they don’t pack a punch. And there is just as much selection in organics than in chemicals. There are lines specially designed for oily, combination, dry, matured or sensitive skin types. And with the organic label, you can also be sure that you are endorsing a company that is eco-conscious and tries to minimize or eliminate their impact on the earth. They are invested in natural resources, as that is all that is in their products, so it is in their best interest to preserve all they can.
So what are you waiting for? Go to your bathroom, read the labels and start changing your life with organic skin care.
