Did you know that your skin is the largest organ on your body? If you use skincare products filled with chemicals and additives, you may do your skin more harm than good. Yes, the package may promise beautiful skin, but it won’t tell you the side effects of the ingredients inside.
Organic and natural skincare products, on the other hand, use ingredients that support your skin and body, providing you with smooth, beautiful skin without the harmful side effects.
Reasons to Consider Natural Skincare Products
Are you still wondering if all of the hype surrounding natural skincare products is really worth it? Check out some of the top reasons you should care about the products that touch your skin:
Eliminate harmful reactions – Have you ever broken out in a rash, felt itchy, or broken out after using a new skincare product? Chances are it was a reaction to the chemicals used. Natural skincare products use ingredients that support your skin rather than irritate it, using the Earth’s natural ingredients to supply the beautiful skin you desire.
Stop smelling harmful chemicals – Have you ever gotten a headache from a skincare product or experienced sinus pain? It could be from the toxic fumes coming from chemically made skincare products. Natural skincare products use natural ingredients and no fillers, so you don’t have to worry about the harmful and possibly toxic smells that harm your organs without you realizing.
You won’t experience dried out skin – Did you know the fillers in many chemically created products actually dry out your skin? Yes, a product meant to create soft, supple skin can have the opposite effect due to its chemical construction. Natural products use ingredients that work with your body, not against it.
Natural products last longer – Because natural skincare products have natural ingredients, they do their job with much less product use. When you use less product, you have to replace it less often, which means more money in your wallet and a healthier body.
What to Look for in Natural Skincare Products
As you shop for natural skincare products, make sure you read the label carefully. Anyone can market their products as ‘natural,’ there’s very little regulation surrounding the industry. Natural can mean they used one natural ingredient and filled the rest with chemicals and toxins.
Know how to read the labels. Look for ingredients, such as:
- Artificial fragrance
- DEA, MEA and TEA (*thanolamine)
- BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)
Each of these ingredients increases your risk of allergies, respiratory issues, hormone issues, cancer, and fertility issues.
Knowing what’s in your skincare products helps protect your overall health. We know that you want beautiful skin, but not at the cost of your overall health. Read labels and choose natural skincare products that support your skin as well as protect your overall health, eliminating any harmful reactions, issues, or concerns at the expense of having beautiful skin.
