Did you know that our skin is the largest and most exposed organ of our body? Every day it is exposed to countless potentially harmful agents in our day-to-day lives. But don’t panic. All that means is that our skin needs and deserves some serious ongoing TLC. We also need to understand what could be potentially harming us and our skin and telling it to get lost.
One of the most common harmful elements that comes into contact with our skin regularly is potentially toxic chemicals used in mainstream skincare products. That’s why countless skincare specialists and enthusiasts are moving towards 100% natural skincare. And luckily for us, it’s become easier than ever to make the switch.
Why Make Your Own Natural Skincare Products?
I know that making your own skincare sounds pretty scary. And why should we bother when there’s a plethora of "all-natural" skincare ready and waiting on the shelves? The reason is because unfortunately some of the skincare manufacturers out there are lying to us (devastating I know). Many of us fall prey to devious marketing techniques and don’t pay enough attention to what those so-called “natural products” might be hiding under the fancy labels. To avoid this and make sure you only feed your skin the finest quality ingredients in their purest most natural form, we suggest creating your own natural products at home. You’ll have 100% control over what goes into your skincare products and, ultimately, on your skin. Oh, and you'll have heaps of fun in the process too - bonus!
Benefits of Using Your Own Natural Skincare Products
If you’re new to the natural skincare game, here are some of the perks:
Better for Your Skin
The key to achieving and maintaining safe and healthy skin is knowing what lies underneath the lid. If you look at the labels of most skincare products in the market, you may not be able to identify, let alone pronounce, most of the ingredients. With your custom-made skincare products, you know you’re feeding your skin with 100% pure, potent, and safe nutrients. Natural ingredients are packed to the rafters with essential vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids needed to keep your skin blooming with health and radiance.
Safer for the Environment
Since you’re creating your natural skincare products using natural ingredients, there will be no waste and nasty toxic chemicals leaching into our soil and waterways. The chemicals used in synthetic skincare products can pose a serious threat to our planet and all living beings on it. Furthermore, you’ll be supporting organic farming by producing clean skincare products, adding to the sustainability and health of our planet.
Better for Your Health
The pros of using natural skincare products aren’t limited to just your skin. Toxic chemicals in some skincare products can penetrate the skin and enter your bloodstream, leading to all types of health woes, especially when used for an extended period of time. With natural skincare products, this is one problem you don't need to stress about.
Better for People with Skin Conditions
Chemical-rich synthetic skincare products and even some natural skincare products contain fillers and other toxic ingredients, which may lead to an allergic reaction, irritation, and inflammation. This can be even more pronounced for people struggling with skin conditions like eczema, acne, and psoriasis. With at home 100% natural skincare products there are no harsh chemicals hiding anywhere making them less likely to aggravate your skin condition.
The Bottom Line
Ordinary skincare products are full of numerous harmful ingredients that can lead to serious skin and health issues. Moreover, some toxins can have a negative impact on our environment and everything living in it. That's why we need to be more mindful of what we are putting on our skin. All it takes is a little research and some creativity.
So, reap the benefits of what nature has to offer and embark on your journey to safer and healthier skin today!
