All we hear about these days is organic this and organic that. Many of us might have switched to organic milk or eggs, but maybe haven’t made the switch in other areas. Organic lollipops? Organic skin care? Is there no end?
You might be surprised to know that of all the organic products available, organic skin care products are one of the most effective and helpful. While what you put into your body is important, we often don’t give much thought to what we put on our skin, yet it’s equally important.
Organic skin care products and organic face creams are free of additives that can harm your skin. While you might think you are giving your skin a good dose of good stuff when you use your traditional products, you are actually putting chemicals on it (like sodium lauryl sulfate, which is actually a degreaser) that can strip it of essential oils and harm, rather than benefit, your skin.
When products are certified organic, they are free of these kinds of chemicals and additives that only harm skin. They will be made using only the highest quality pure ingredients that they can be made of.
What’s in organic products?
Most organic products contain plant-based ingredients that can soften, smooth and cleanse the skin, depending on what the product is designed to do. When you look into organic products, you might be surprised to find out exactly how much natural ingredients can do for your skin.
If you look at the ingredient list of an organic product, you might find the following ingredients (these are some of the ingredients in Athena’s 7 Minute Lift:
Orange peel oil
Grapefruit peel oil
Rose flower oil
Sweet almond oil
What do these do? They lift the skin to reduce wrinkles in 7 minutes which gives just about the fastest results available for any wrinkle cream, and also they contain antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the skin against free radicals.
These are all products that you can not only pronounce, but that you could eat if need be. It’s far less scary to put this stuff on your face than some of the other products available on beauty aisles these days.
Where to find organic products
It’s ideal if you can use both skin and body care products that are organic. If you feed your body well, you will give it a one-two punch of good care if you also put organic products on top of the skin.
These days, you can find some organic products in drug and department stores, but there are also plenty of choices online. One of the advantages of shopping online is you can do a good deal of research before settling on a product; it’s less likely you will get caught up in the promises of a salesperson as you might in a store.
Feed your body well with good food and then treat it well with organic products. They are easy to find, not much more expensive and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
