The average woman uses 22 skin care and cosmetic products each day, many based on promises of special formulas that produce a specific result. Like fad diets that give temporary results, products made with artificial or chemical ingredients offer the same thing: a temporary mask without improving skin from deep within.
When grocery shopping, none of us would choose food in the same way as many of us choose skin care products. Studies and experience have taught us that eating organically is the best decision for our overall health. When choosing foods, you pay attention to the nutrition facts and ingredient lists, choosing foods that fuel your healthy daily allowances and aren’t made with artificial ingredients. But are you as scrupulous with your skin care selections?
When shopping for skin care, one of the first decisions you can make for the benefit of your skin and overall health is choosing organic skin care products. Organic products are made with ingredients from nature grown without the aid of chemical pesticides. When pesticides are used in the growing process, chemical residue can leach into the ingredient, making its way into your skin care product and your bloodstream.
Think about a transdermal patch, a small patch that is applied directly to the skin to deliver a dose of medication to the bloodstream. Your skin allows the medication on these patches – most often aids to help people quit smoking, or birth control methods – to enter your skin and alter your body’s functions. There is no special delivery system in these patches...except for your skin of course. The ingredients in your skin care products are no different; when you massage lotion on your skin, where does it disappear? The ingredients are absorbed by the skin and into the bloodstream.
While choosing organic skin care ingredients may take a bit more research and due diligence, your health is worth it. Here are 5 reasons why it is worth searching out organic and plant-based skin care products:
