Let’s talk organic skin care: things you should know
Just because something says natural doesn’t necessarily mean it’s really organic or good for your skin. Maybe you have noticed that after switching from one “natural” product to another there can be a lot of difference on the look of your skin. After months or even years of being unsure what the sources of your skin imperfections are, it is about time to alter your skin care and start using organic instead. And now, you probably think what to do first. Well, go through these tips and tricks that will help you with taking that first crucial step.
Find out what is your skin type
It is very important to know your skin type before choosing your skin care. Don’t just buy what you find visually appealing, or what you think smells good because it may damage your skin and leave you with consequences that will show later on. It is normal for your skin to get thinner as years go by, with tendency to become wrinkled, but why not slow the process?
With the right preparation, you can achieve bloomy looking skin that glows and postpone the aging process. Read the labels; find organic products that are made for your exact skin type to keep it elastic, healthy and nourished. It is time to change the way you took care of your face and body, to get rid of all the bad habits and start treating your skin the right way.
There are tons of DIY skin care alternatives that you can apply to your face and body to get the results you want. There are recipes you can make with various fruits and vegetables that can be helpful not only for hydrating but for exfoliating too. Exfoliation is very important because that way you remove dead skin cells and as a result, get smoother skin while keeping it fresh and clean. Applying homemade apricot face scrub is the best way to exfoliate your skin because of the abrasive texture provided by the fruit itself. Try using high-quality honey to make face mask since honey is natural antibacterial and it also hydrates and calms the skin.
Be sure that you have read everything written on a cosmetic product before purchasing it. Educate yourself about the impact different chemicals have on your skin, such as parabens or phthalates. Many researches show that using products consisting aluminum can severely damage your health so think about the consequences. Check the list of ingredients on the products you are using now and replace them with organic chemical-free cosmetics to prevent skin irritation or allergic reaction. Think in advance to help your skin retain its elasticity and freshness. So be smart, choose your organic skincare products wisely and start making changes. Help your skin look beautiful, be smooth and stay healthy.

Natural organic skin care usually have mild smell, mostly you can recognize it as scent of natural ingredients. If you really need your cosmetic to be fragranced, try combining it with essential oils for the extra touch of aroma. For example, using tea tree oil not only will make your skin smell good but also make it healthy and reduce the amount of acne. Not to mention you can use it on your hair as well to make it stronger and give it shiny look.
Now that you know what, why and how to do it, there are no more excuses.
