When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, many people think that it only includes eating healthy and exercising regularly. While these things are important, something many people overlook is what they are putting on their skin!
Our skin is our largest organ that absorbs everything we put onto it. On average, every individual will spray or lather on ten different beauty products onto their skin each day. Thus, unknowingly exposing themselves to dangerous chemicals that will eventually make it into their bloodstream.
If living a healthy life is important to you, then going with natural and organic skincare should be one of your priorities. Here are the benefits of natural skincare:
Organic skincare is made using natural ingredients that meet the standards that organic food does. These ingredients are produced using no harsh chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers, which means none of those things will be transferred to your body as you use the product. Many unnatural skincare products use chemical ingredients as fillers which will do you more harm than good. The product might help your skin look nice for a few days or weeks, but these ingredients will eventually cause irritation, clogged pores and congestion. By going with organic skincare, you will be using natural ingredients which work with your body rather than against it, which keeps your body in balance.
Most conventional skincare products contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals like phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and parabens. These substances are known carcinogens that can affect the health of not only your skin but can cause damage to your immune, reproductive and endocrine systems. If you tend to use a high amount of products, your body will be absorbing a higher level of toxic concentrations that can accumulate in your body and cause problems later on.
Organic skincare is made with organic ingredients which are produced using sustainable practices. Because there are no harsh chemicals involved in the making of these products, there will be less waste and toxins, which end up down the drain and back to the earth. When you go with organic products, you not only do good by your skin, but you also make a good impact on the environment.
