If you are not already slathering organic face creams all over your face, then you are missing out on a recent trend which is to use skin care products made from all-natural, organic ingredients. Similar to the rise in popularity of organically grown food items, health and beauty products have followed suit. Not only have manufacturing companies started to use organic ingredients, but they went all-natural and (almost) chemical-free as well. In the next section, we will take a look at how you can make your beauty routine green, organic, and all-natural.
Make Your Beauty Routine Green!
When you’re taking a bath, you are using a number of skincare products for your body: soap, shaving gel, body wash, shampoo, and lotion. Before going to bed, you usually apply cleanser, facial oil, moisturizer, eye cream, anti-ageing serum, and a host of other products to keep your skin looking young and blemish-free. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, but if your bathroom products are all laden with chemicals which are easily absorbed by the skin, you are also putting your health at risk. You’ll never know how many ingredients in the label are harmful chemicals, so it really is better to go for organic and all-natural.
To give you an idea about how you can make your beauty routine green, here are a few quick tips to keep in mind:
- Simplify! Instead of slathering one skin care product after another on your face, start with a basic organic face wash. These are usually made from USDA certified organic ingredients. If you need to remove makeup, go for all natural face oils which can double up as a moisturizer.
- If you have acne-prone skin, go for a natural toner that’s made from green tea. You can also apply tea tree oil directly onto the problem spots.
- Next, moisturize using your serum or face cream of choice. If you prefer an organic face cream, there are many variants that you can choose from. A daily vitamin face cream made from all-natural ingredients is a good product to start with. Look for one that’s made with organic ingredients like aloe leaf juice, coconut oil, grapefruit oil, acai berry oil, and Bulgarian rose oil. The essential oils are highly moisturizing, and helps soften and smoothen the skin.
Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing is a good 3-step skin care routine to follow. When you minimize the number of skin care products you’re using, you are also helping reduce waste. When you add organic and all-natural ingredients to the equation, then you are well on your way towards having a truly green skin care routine.
