Organic skin care has stayed neglected under a layer of modernization for quite a long time. But what effect has this put on our faces, in the long run, is no secret. We prefer natural food products over adulterated ones then why isn't it the same for our skin. Every time we eat, the food moves through the digestive tract and the liver expels the harmful toxins. Although, a major part of the synthetic skin care products we use on our skin gets absorbed into the bloodstream and sticks to the base. So, now you know what significance natural skin care products withhold in our daily routine.
Do not follow a natural skincare routine just because it is a trend among celebrities, follow it so your skin glows, stays hydrated, stays young and is wrinkle-free in the long run. So, if this gets you hooked up, then stay motivated while we take you through those 5 benefits of choosing natural over synthetic skin care products.
Benefits of Organic Skin Care Products:
1. Nutritious For The Skin:
One of the most famous advantages of natural skin care products is their nutritious value. If you check a bottle of synthetically made product, you'll find names such as Sodium Laureth or laurel Sulfate, Formaldehyde, Phthalates, Sunscreen filters, Mineral Oils, Petroleum, Fragrances, Parabens. These compounds are toxins added to show instant temporary effects and can cause skin dryness, hormonal imbalance, skin allergies, and in the worst case, skin cancer.
On the other hand, natural skin care products are a composition of coconut oil, peppermint, shea butter, milk, etc., a lot of which we generally consume on a diet. These ingredients are equally nutritious to the skin as to our bodies.
2. Safer on the skin:
In comparison, natural products are safer than synthetic ones on all scales. That is because the ingredients used in natural products are directly derived from mother nature and are not at all messed around. As we discussed earlier, when a lotion gets applied to the skin, it seeps into the bloodstream. Now, if the ingredients added to the cream are beneficial, the lotion can do wonders while your skin makes friends with it. On the other hand, if the cream is a composition of toxic ingredients, the same will reflect you. Can you imagine toxins building up in the way of your bloodstream?
So, by using a natural skin care product, you are safeguarding not just your skin but also your body from all the adverse health effects of synthetic ones.
3. Better for Environment:
Cutting to the chase, natural skin care products are safer for the environment when compared to synthetic skin care products. There are numerous reasons behind this fact.
In the main, synthetic skin care products have chemicals capable of harming the faunas they get in contact with. Once the chemicals seep into the ground, they have enough potential to cause harmful effects on the surrounding environment and cause a biological imbalance.
Secondly, the manufacture of traditional skin care products sets heavy loads of stress on the ecosystem. A reason behind this is that the retrieval of some ingredients to create such products demands mine. Unsurprisingly, mining results in carbon emissions which ultimately act as a slow poison for the ecosystem.
On the opposite side, natural skin care products are made from ingredients that do not need mining. They can be extracted directly from plants without causing any harm to them. This helps to maintain biological harmony.
4. Have Better Efficiency:
A lot of controversies are rolling around the harms of synthetic skin care products. The blunt consequences it leaves on the skin are not unknown now. Not just this, but as we all have experienced, they lose their effect only after quite a while, which represents their inefficiency.
Contrary to this, we have natural skin care products that do give you an instant improvement of looks but they have a deeper purpose. Natural skin care products repair every cell of your skin to the maximum potential your skin has. Where synthetic products are hiding your real beauty behind a layer of cream, natural ones are doing the complete opposite. Hence, we can easily measure where most of the efficiency lies.
5. Higher Rates of Sustainability:
While we hustle to impress ourselves in the mirror, we need to answer this, "What are we leaving behind?". Yes, synthetic skin care products as discussed above are a contributor to global warming. The stress our ecosystem goes through to provide you with one small tube of lotion is tremendous. Animals are massacred for their nutrients, and exhaustible resources are getting mined. So, are we willing to leave nothing for the upcoming generation? No, right.
On the brighter side, natural skin care products are sustainable.
These are made out of natural resources like leaves, milk, etc., that do not harm the environment. These are all derived from plants and animals in the safest form possible and are completely inexhaustible. Thus, we need not be a reason for the exhaustion of a resource or the extinction of a species.
So the time is now, to analyze the points we have mentioned and hold the hands of nature. Natural skin care products have existed for ages, many great 'Acharyas' gave great composition. Whereas, synthetic products have been launched recently only when man understood creating them could be economic and easier but at the cost of your health.
