Treat your skin with a little tender loving care(TLC) by switching to natural skin care products. Organic and natural skin care offer many benefits, all of which contribute to a more beautiful you. If teetering on the edge of the natural skin care cliff but aren’t sure whether to take the plunge, convince yourself via the following five reasons.
Skin And Body Health
Your skin is your largest organ, and it absorbs nearly everything you put on it! Be good to this essential part of yourself by using products featuring skin-loving ingredients instead of harsh chemicals. Read the label of every product you purchase, and keep in mind words such as “fragrance” are broad terms used to “cover up” a wide range of chemical additives. A study by the National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health found over 800 toxic ingredients in skin care products, 700 of which cause acute toxic effects. Some 300 of these ingredients result in developmental problems and abnormalities.
In addition to fragrances, harmful toxins found in skin care products include mineral oil, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, FD&C color pigments, and many, many others.
Studies indicate women of child-bearing age are at great risk of infertility and reproductive problems due to exposure to various chemical ingredients. The crazy number of toxins people are exposed to on a daily basis has resulted in high birth defect rates.
Natural skin care products contain nutrients skin needs to look radiant and beautiful, unlike their chemical counterparts. Cocoa butter is a common natural skin care ingredient that provides flesh with the hydration and essential fatty acids it needs to look young and fresh. White tea, pomegranate, grape, and apricot extracts all offer antioxidant protection. Natural mineral sunscreens are another common ingredient in such products that protect skin from aging UV rays.
Less Allergic Reactions
Many chemicals found in typical skin care products cause allergic reactions, breakouts, redness, or other irritation. Natural skin care saves your largest organ from these issues.
Organic and natural skin care products are much safer for the environment. Harsh commercial skin care ingredients such as aluminum, petroleum, and lead require serious mining, usually insensitive and vital locations such as the Amazon Rainforest. The manufacturing of natural skin care products does not require this practice and otherwise puts substantially fewer chemicals into the water and air. !
Make the switch today….your skin and the planet will thank you!
