Flawless and radiant skin is a dream for any woman and for that matter all of us. We all seek a glowing and smooth complexion that can be protected from all harmful external factors.
If you are really serious about nourishment and protection of your skin health, you need to check the quality of skincare products you have been using, are they really healthy for your skin? But what exactly do we mean by nourishing and healthy?
Why is your skincare so important and what should you do to identify and decide on the best skincare and cosmetic products? Let’s face it, many of us think chemical products are not really that dangerous. Let’s be practical instead of being fooled by all that advertising in mass media. If you are one of those people, I beg to differ with you.
Ok, did you know that our skin actually absorbs 60% of the substances we apply externally in our daily routine? If this does not surprise you, are you even aware that if you are pregnant, beware of the products you use! Harmful chemicals cause the most disease when they are present during pregnancy. Such chemicals and toxic substances can lead to serious illnesses, such as cancer or infertility.
Now the question arises, if not chemical-based products then what is the solution? What are natural cosmetics and where can you get them? Let’s try to simplify the subject for you, Natural cosmetics contain ingredients derived from plants and minerals. Ingredients such as aloe, apricot oil, chamomile, shea butter, beeswax, or essential oils have a lot of benefits for hair and skin.
Natural cosmetics are also environmentally friendly, when you decide to buy that overrated and often advertised brand of anti-wrinkle cream that has been advertised daily, and apparently being used by a film star, you are encouraging the pollution on the planet. That chemical-based cream is surely not nourishing your skin or the skin of that film star and she probably is using a plant-based natural cosmetic product herself. Unfortunately, many commercial cosmetic products contain toxic substances for both skin and body. The side effects cannot be discovered immediately, but they will leave marks on the body over time.
Cosmetics can damage both the environment and health. Chemicals used in cosmetics are washed into rivers, lakes, and streams. Thousands of plastic packages are left behind, chemical elements pollute waters affecting marine life and, generally, life on Earth.
On the other hand, natural products are not just beneficial to you, but to the entire environment as well. Why? Because the ingredients are based on sustainable agriculture. They come directly from plants that have not been chemically treated.
Natural cosmetics and skincare products are free of Parabens, sulfates, or any petrochemicals? When you choose to use daily organic skincare, you no longer have to worry about all these ingredients that may have a negative impact on your skin.
Instead, what would you say about: Apricot oil, sesame oil, aloe vera, shea butter, coconut oil, eucalyptus, green tea, and other similar ingredients. These are just some of the natural ingredients used in various cosmetics.
Natural products are extremely rich in nutrients, most natural makeup products contain coconut butter or cold-pressed oils. Their fatty acids may help reduce wrinkles, dry skin, and blemishes. You can also find ingredients such as peach extracts, grapes, and white tea, which prevent aging skin and naturally build collagen for glowing, youthful skin. All such natural cosmetics help you slow down the aging process beautifully and they are also gentle with the skin.
These natural products are created selectively as they can’t be mass-produced in factories. Now you need to decide if you want the best and most natural skin care for yourself.
