To A More Beautiful You
It is probably everyone’s dream to have smooth, flawless skin and, true enough, a lot of us had been in continuous search of the perfect skin care product. But the real trick to achieving a youthful glow is Organic skin care.
Non-chemical-based beauty products have been revived in the past couple of years, and have been steadily gaining more popularity since. Unlike chemical products, organic skin care is not only safer but also cheaper. They are safe to use, gentle on the skin and provides ample and natural nourishment. So how do you take advantage of organic skin care? Here are some tips that you can follow:
Look for organic products.Instead of rushing to the counter with the first on sale cosmetic you can lay your hands on, take the time to read the labels first before buying a product. Make sure that the ingredients are mostly organic and that the product has the necessary certifications and approval.
- The simpler, the better.
The simpler your beauty regime is, the more effective it will actually be. Instead of slapping on 10 to 20 products on your face every day, stick to the basics. More often than not, a cleaner – toner – moisturizer – sunscreen routine should suffice.
- Stay away from products with fragrance.
Skin care products that are fragrant usually contains phthalates—an artificial fragrance. It can trigger allergic reactions or, worse, cause damage to the kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system.
- Stay away from petroleum by-products.
Aside from the fact that putting petroleum on your skin does not sound like a good idea in the first place, petroleum by-products such as paraffin hold greater chances of containing carcinogens. They will clog pores and obstruct the skin’s ability to detoxify.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Organic skin care is not only about the products, it is also about the practice. A healthy skin will most likely come from a healthy body, so make sure that you keep watch of your diet and general well-being, as well. Here is a checklist of things that you should do:
- Drink 8-10 glasses of water every day. If you can, drink more.
- Drink and eat fresh fruits and vegetables. When cooking vegetables, make sure that you cook it long enough to kill the bacteria but do not overcook.
- Exercise 3-4 times a week. You do not have to go the gym. A few minutes of running or stretching exercises at home should suffice.
- Get a good night’s sleep. It is the best way for the body to heal and repair itself.
- Think happy thoughts. Remember that a good disposition leads to better health.
- Wash hair every other day to help it retain its natural oils.
