Everyone wants healthy, glowing skin. There are many options in the beauty and health care market to choose from; educating yourself about the ingredients in them will help you make the best decisions for your body and your skin.
Skin creams and cosmetics don’t stay on the surface of your skin without penetrating it to some degree. Using all-natural, organic products can help you avoid applying harmful chemicals to your skin. Removing petroleum-based products, or those with other synthetic ingredients, can help clear up skin problems like acne, contact dermatitis, allergies, and skin irritations.
For a makeup or skin care product to be certified as organic, they must meet strict standards in all the ingredients and the manufacturing processes. This prohibits manufacturers from using ingredients that aren’t regulated.
Organic makeup and skin care products offer a safe, effective alternative to chemically-produced makeup and other products. Not only are they eco-friendly, they avoid using harsh chemicals such as parabens, aluminum, and phthalates, which have been linked to certain types of cancer.
Organic products offer scents without the toxic compounds found in synthetically produced makeup and beauty products. Make sure the products you use have scents derived from 100% natural ingredients, such as essential oils. Organic products are also rich in nutrients; a good rule of thumb to follow is “if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin”. Read labels carefully to make the best choices. Herbal extracts, vitamin C, and organic mineral ingredients such as titanium oxide, zinc oxide, and iron oxide are considered safe and gentle for your skin.
While studies are still ongoing, using organic makeup and beauty products certainly won’t cause harm; try them for awhile to see if you notice a difference in your allergies, skin irritations, and the general health of your skin. For more information, please contact:
