Natural skincare products have been available – at a price – for some time, but now they are becoming more accessible to everyone. But does this really matter in everyday life?
Well, the answer is “Yes” it really does matter and it affects you and your future in some pretty important ways.
Your skin is one of the most important organs in your body – it’s certainly the largest – and so has to be well maintained. Its main role (apart from holding all your insides in place :-)) is to eliminate toxins from your body. However, your skin acts as a two-way membrane, and also allows toxins back in to your body!
Therefore it’s pretty important for you to consider what you’re putting on your face and body when you use your favourite moisturiser or body polish.
The fact is that skin care products that are not “natural” can contain some pretty harmful ingredients:-
- Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) – also used as industrial degreaser and floor cleaner
- Mineral oils – used in industry as cutting lubricants
- Propylene glycol – a major ingredient in brake and hydraulic fluids
And whilst these produce the results you’re looking for in the short term, the long term effects – particularly if they pass through your skin & into your bloodstream – may prove to be quite disastrous.
So, back to the main question, “Why use natural skincare products?” Let’s face it, everyone wants their skin to look its best, and that can only be achieved when it is at its healthiest. It’s unlikely that “healthy” comes into the equation when we’re gaily applying petrochemicals to our skin, so natural is the way to go.
Natural skincare products are formulated from carefully selected organic and natural ingredients, which are able to deliver the results you want whilst still being kind to you and your skin. Many of these products are hypoallergenic and suitable for vegans.
