Most of us think about health in terms of a balanced diet and regular exercise. Someone might think these things are unimportant, but what about the products we use on our body? Choosing natural, organic skincare should be a priority for those looking to live a healthier lifestyle. Skin is the most important organ on the body and it will absorb anything you put onto it. The average person applies about ten different beauty products to their skin every day. Unknowingly taking in a variety of chemicals from other sources, which eventually make their way into our bloodstream.
Here are my top 3 reasons why:
- Better for your skin
Organic skin care is made with ingredients that are the same as organic foods. This means that we will not use any harsh chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers. In many cases, chemical fillers are used to make products cheaper. These ingredients do more harm than good. Synthetic ingredients can make your skin look fresh for a while, but they cause problems in the long run. When choosing organic skin care products, your body is capable of balancing and healing itself without the chemicals.
- Better for your health
Conventional skin care products are not just irritating to the skin – they also contain chemicals that can be harmful. These cancer-causing substances can wreak havoc on the immune, reproductive, and endocrine systems.When you use a lot of products, the toxic concentration in your body can increase and cause problems.
- Better for the environment
Organic skin care is healthy for your skin because it begins with organic ingredients often sourced under sustainable practices. Since there’s less expected waste in these products, it produces significantly less toxins and chemicals being released into the environment. When you choose organic beauty products not only are you making your skin and internal health happy, but also the environment.
