All-natural Skin Care

Feb 5, 2008
Taking care of your skin is a great way to show your body how much you care. Great looking skin can help keep you looking younger, healthier and happier - all by taking a few steps each day to just revitalize that outer layer of epidermis. But what is the best skin care out there?

Organic skin care is great for your skin because it doesn't include the chemicals that typical skin care companies use in their products. While typical skin care may work on your skin problems or concerns just fine, do you really want to use products that contain chemicals you can't pronounce?

Look at the back of your skin care package, and read the ingredients carefully. Can you pronounce them? Chances are, even with the big skin care companies like those you'll find in department stores - the ingredient list will make you tongue-tied.

Organic skin care goes beyond even natural skin care, which takes care to use ingredients from nature in their products. These ingredients include items that are taken from plants - such as extracts that might come from vegetables, or fruits. They might even use herbs or teas.

These items taken from the earth are just as effective as the chemicals that have been used in high end skin care for years, but they are more gentle - both to your skin and to the environment. In some cases, the substances derived from some herbs and plants may actually be more effective.

While buying these natural skin care items may seem easier than making them at home, it is really not difficult to make some items and it is actually more beneficial to do so. A simple cleanser can be made out of olive oil and salt - and if you are worried about organic ingredients, you can rest your fears.

For an item to be deemed organic, it must be grown and harvested without the use of chemicals. That means that no chemical fertilizers can be used to accelerate the growth of the crop, and no chemical pesticides can be used to ward off insects while the crop is growing.

Items can only be certified organic if they have been produced without chemicals - so you can be sure that you are using the purest forms of these plant based products on your skin. Looking for premade skin care items that are organic is also a great idea if you are concerned about purity.

Be kind to your skin, and find some all natural skin care that works for you. It's better for your skin and better for the environment as well - when you aren't using chemicals on your skin, you're not putting as many chemicals into the water supply.
