Going organic with your skincare regime, is now the best and safest way to protect your skin while getting the desired results of a healthy and glowing skin.
You probably already know that one of the benefits of organic food is that it helps protect you from toxic chemical residues commonly found on preservatives used on chemical foods; it is also for this same reason advisable to use organic skincare products to avoid exposing your skin to toxic chemicals.
In most cases, organic skincare products are much healthier on the skin than any chemical based products due to nature of the ingredients, and type of ingredients that are left out, e.g harsh preservatives, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances – none of which are found in true organic skincare products anyway
For teens, organic skincare omits the chemicals that can compete with and interfere with hormones that are being produced at this stage of your young life.
Limiting exposure to chemicals during teen years is much more beneficial in the long term and will set the foundation for the wellbeing of your skin throughout the many decades to come.
This is the time in a woman’s life when she can really establish a natural, clean base for her skin while it is still young and resilient. This is the age to begin to protect the skin from the sun and as young women tend to wear makeup daily, it’s important that you choose products that won’t clog pores.
This is also the prime time to start using a good organic cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliator to protect and strengthen the skin to help prevent premature lines from forming.
This is when the first real signs of ageing begin to show. Sun damage and age spots begin to appear and it’s important to look after your skin as it begins to enter a more mature stage. Organic products have a very high antioxidant content, which can protect and help reverse the visible signs of ageing.
Also, women in their thirties may be thinking of pregnancy, which is the most significant time in a woman’s life when she should be considering everything going in and on her body for the wellbeing of her unborn child. Toxins are so readily absorbed into the skin, every effort should be made to omit any or, if possible, all products that could potentially affect the child’s development.
This is the age where women need to slow down the ageing process as much as possible! Luckily, some of the most effective anti-ageing discoveries of all time can be found in nature.
Powerful anti-aging ingredients such as coconut oil, honey, cucumber face mask can be applied topically with excellent results.
