Our skin reacts much better to natural skin care, so why would you ever use anything else? Check out our guide on why natural skin care is the best skin care.
More than likely you have over a dozen creams in your bathroom that never seemed to live up to their promises.
Even though no one can turn back time, there are certain things you can do to change the appearance of your skin by making a few simple changes.
Switching to a natural skin care regimen is one of those changes that will leave your skin less irritated and keep side effects away.
The problem with creams that are filled with synthetic ingredients isn’t only that they don’t live up to their promises.
The skin is the biggest organ of the human body and it absorbs a lot of chemicals that are found in creams.
If you want to simplify your beauty routine and switch to products that won’t have a negative impact on your body, read on.
Learn how to detect natural skin care products
There are many products out there that have “all natural” written on the label. However, nobody actually checks those claims.
You will have to actually look for other clues to figure it out if the products you see on the shelf would actually be a good candidate for your skin care routine.
Is there anything on the label that you can’t spell?
This might sound like a silly rule but all synthetic chemicals have hard-to-spell names.
Argan oil is easy to spell, and so are many other oils and natural ingredients. However, sulfates and other harsh chemicals will have foreign-looking names.
Also, if you aren’t sure what you’re looking at, make sure you always conduct some research on each ingredient you encounter in your creams.
Many skincare addicts find it hard to switch to a natural skin care regimen because they prefer creams that smell good!
However, perfume is made out of irritants such as alcohol, which can even dehydrate oily skin.
The benefits of using eco-friendly products
The truth is that most people use harsh chemicals because they’re advised by specialists to do so without thinking about the long-term effects.
Fortunately, there are natural alternatives to your current skincare regime.
No more sensitive skin
One of the most used ingredients in anti-aging and acne regimes is salicylic acid. What few people know, however, is that over time it can make your skin more sensitive.
Salicylic acid can thin your skin layers, which often creates more damage than good.
No initial breakouts
Natural skin care regimens don’t lead to initial breakouts, unlike many well-known over the counter creams.
Initial breakouts are caused by inflammation, as well as the fact that skin needs time to adjust to chemicals it is exposed to.
Fortunately, natural skin care products don’t trigger an inflammatory response because they’re more gentle on the skin.
A natural skin care regime not only saves your skin from harsh chemicals, but it also saves the environment.
Perfume, alcohol, sulfates, and parabens all impact your health on long-term, not only by irritating your skin but also by getting into your bloodstream.
