7 Benefits of Organic Skincare
3 min read
It's no secret that our body loves organic ingredients. Every time you nourish yourself with clean, organic foods, you really do feel better. It does make you wonder whether or not your complexion could benefit too. Survey says: YES! Your body absorbs everything you put on your skin, so if you see ingredients you wouldn't eat or can't even pronounce, there's a good chance your skin isn't crazy about them either.
Organic skincare products are a true investment in your skin because they offer so many benefits and can effectively treat some of the conditions you might be struggling with. There are so many great reasons to make the change over to organic that we couldn't pick just one. Here are the top 7 reasons why you should switch to organic skincare products today.
1. Made with natural ingredients that your skin will love
Organic products are made with care. Every ingredient you see on the label was explicitly chosen to help improve and maintain your beautiful complexion.
You can feel at ease knowing that your certified organic skincare is made from plants and naturally occurring ingredients that are grown without the use of harmful chemicals, pesticides, or additives. You won't be absorbing any harmful ingredients, and your skin will thank you for it.
2. Free of the ingredients that are harmful to your skin
One of the best things about organic skincare products is knowing just how many harmful ingredients you aren't slathering on your face and body every day. Non-organic skin care products contain many ingredients that you can't even pronounce. Most of them are man-made chemicals and toxins that shouldn't be anywhere near your body.
Parabens, paraffin, and mineral oil are just some of the most common ones you should be avoiding. Your skin can actually develop a paraffin addiction where it loses its ability to produce naturally occurring oils, so you end up needing even more product to feel moisturized. Meanwhile, using harmful ingredients in excess can cause skin irritation, and you're absorbing even more toxins into your bloodstream.
3. Less allergic reactions and flare-ups
The fewer ingredients there are in your skincare products, the easier it is to identify what your skin is having a reaction to. Most non-organic skincare products have at least 20 ingredients, so it's nearly impossible to figure out exactly which one is causing your flare-ups.
With organic products, you're more focused on finding which ingredients work best for your skin instead of reading the labels looking for the ingredients you should be avoiding. If you do have any sort of reaction, it's a specific allergy to one of the natural ingredients and not your skin's response to something more harmful.
4. Happier and healthier skin
When you eat ingredients that your body doesn't like, it has some "interesting ways" of letting you know, and they can be downright uncomfortable. When it comes to your skin, this isn't always the case.
When using harmful products, you might experience some irritation, but more often than not, you'll actually start to see immediate results. While this seems like the perfect outcome, you're actually doing some severe damage below the surface. These man-made ingredients can actually weaken your skin's ability to self-moisturize. Those "pore shrinking" products often clog just your pores. This reduces the oxygen your skin is taking in and hurts its ability to produce natural oils. While your skin may appear smoother, you're actually creating a whole new set of problems. Without these oils, your risk of developing sunspots increases, and you will likely be speeding up the aging process of your skin as well.
With organic products, you're getting all of the benefits from these naturally occurring ingredients that have been nourishing people's skin for years. The results on the surface may not come as quickly as you're used to, and that's ok. Over time, you will start to see the positive effects of using gentler products on your skin, and you'll be preventing any further harm.
5. Every ingredient has a purpose, and they work better
With so few ingredients in your organic products, you know that each one is there for a reason. You can actually take the time to research the beneficial properties of each natural ingredient and get excited about the gift you're about to give your skin.
Better yet, plants and organic ingredients contain natural nutrients, active ingredients, and vital antioxidant vitamins, unlike their non-organic counterparts. Up to 95% of your organic skincare product is made up of active ingredients, whereas non-organic is upwards of 10%.
With your organic products, you've got the benefit of fewer ingredients, and they're doing a lot more work to make your skin glow.
6. Completely cruelty-free skincare
There are so many harsh chemicals and harmful ingredients in traditional skin care products that the beauty industry has to test them first to make sure they're safe for humans. Because of this, thousands of animals have suffered while being used as test subjects to ensure our safety.
Organic skincare brands don't perform this kind of cruel testing. So, when you buy organic, know that you're protecting animals and supporting an entire movement to abolish animal testing in the beauty industry.
7. You're doing your part for the environment
Organic skincare products are derived from natural ingredients that have been grown without the use of any toxic pesticides or fertilizers. This means that the products you're buying have a drastically reduced impact on wildlife and the environment surrounding the organic farms.
