Just like the old adage, “you are what you eat” – the same goes for your skincare regime, you are what you apply to your skin. The skin is the body’s largest organ; therefore taking good care of your skin is vital.
It seems easy enough though, right? Wrong. Every day, we are inundated with thousands of “effective” skincare products on the market, often being promoted by flawless models and false promises. More often than not, these mainstream products contain nasty toxins and chemicals that suffocate the skin – and quite frankly, your skin deserves better!
So what’s the secret to naturally gorgeous, radiant skin? Organic skincare products!
Going organic is not only more effective in helping you aid your skin issues; you’re also feeding your skin with fresh, pure and natural ingredients, which means that those with sensitive skin can rejoice! Think no more rashes, irritations or burning sensations (eek). Another great benefit is that you’ll be protecting the environment. Organic products are much more environmentally friendly than their non-organic opponents. Products with toxins and chemicals cause detrimental effects to the planet.
But before you scour your local health market, it’s important to be conscious of what you’re slathering on your face or body, as even organic skincare products can contain pesky preservatives and preparation aids. We advocate reading the product’s ingredients list first! This can be a challenge at first, as you may be faced with a multitude of foreign, four-syllable words that make zero sense to you. To help you separate the nasty from the nurturing, we have provided a list below featuring the harmful ingredients to steer clear of!
So have you gone green yet?
