Organic Skin Care

You do all of the right things: you limit your fat intake, take your vitamins, exercise daily, drink plenty of water, eat plenty of organic fruits and vegetables, and stay out of the sun. But what about the products you slather on your skin in your quest for moist, wrinkle-free skin? Are you using as much care in selecting skin care products as you do the rest of your life. If you are trying to live a green or vegan lifestyle, organic skin care is an eco-friendly choice that's good for the earth, the animals, and your skin!Earth-friendly natural skin care products are better for the environment because they are made with organic ingredients without pesticides (think herbal and plant-based products), synthetic preservatives, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances, or other harmful substances. In addition, companies dedicated to promoting an organic line are generally dedicated to operating "green" businesses. You'll find that the organic skin care industry has embraced green packaging, soy inks, and other eco-friendly business practices.

For those concerned about living a vegan lifestyle, choosing skin care products that do not use animal byproducts or engage in animal testing is important. While not all organic skin care products will pass the vegan test, you'll find plenty of organic choices that do. Read labels carefully to ensure that your organic choices meet your vegan lifestyle. Many organic skin care product lines are 100% vegetarian and vegan-friendly.

Organic skin care products leave a smaller footprint on the earth and leave animals alone but what can they do for you and your skin? By eliminating the synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colors, chemicals, acids, solvents, and other harsh ingredients and using only natural ingredients such as distilled water, safflower oil, seaweed extract, herbal infusions, avocado, and aloe vera, organic products naturally care for your skin using Earth's bounty.

People have been using natural ingredients since ancient times to care for their skin. From the healing and soothing properties of the aloe vera plant to the antiseptic properties of natural astringents such as rosemary and the moisturizing goodness of essential oils, your skin will love it when you make the switch from over-processed, harsh skin care products to pure and natural organics.

The organic movement is growing. Not only can you go to the local supermarket and buy organic bananas and tomatoes, you can now find a variety of natural, organic skin care products ranging from moisturizers, facial toners, masks, eye creams, toners, cleansers, body creams, and topical medicinal products.

Your skin offers the world a snapshot of your overall health. Does your skin look clean and healthy? Or dry and worn out? Many beauty products claim to be the ultimate in science and suggest that they can stop the aging process. There's no such thing as a 'Fountain of Youth" but you can give your skin the care it needs by choosing natural ingredients and shunning the harsh chemical concoctions.
