The world is a very superficial place. Everyone wants to look good all the time. But very few people stop to think about the long-term effects of regular cosmetic use. Well, I did not want to be a part of the crowd anymore. While I am just as particular as anyone when it comes to how I look, I find that I am becoming more concerned about what I subject my skin to as I age. So when someone I know suggested that I use natural organic cosmetics, I decided to do some research into how it would help me and my skin before taking the plunge.
What are Natural Organic Cosmetics?
Although the term ‘organic’ is all over the place, there are still some who are not quite sure what it means. For their benefit, I’ll first briefly explain the term. Most foods today are grown with genetically modified seeds. In addition, pesticides and weed killers and other fatally poisonous chemicals are used in the growth process. These do not come off when washed with water so the whole planet is slowly but surely being poisoned since most of us consume these foods.
It is only recently that studies have uncovered the fact that pesticides and other chemicals that are common in agriculture today may be responsible for many modern diseases – everything from cancer to Alzheimer’s.
There are several cosmetics companies that manufacture their products using natural ingredients which are not organic. So there are still harmful chemicals in these so-called ‘natural’ products. However, it’s still better than regular cosmetics.
Organic farmers, on the other hand, are advocates of natural living. They do not use any chemicals in the growth process, the seeds are natural, the water is pure, and the soil is not treated in any way. So plants grown organically are safer for consumption and healthier too.
Natural organic cosmetics are made from extracts of plants that have been grown organically. So you can be sure that you are feeding your skin only the best that nature has to offer.
How Do Organic Cosmetics Benefit My Skin?
Here’s why organic makeup and products are better. Regular cosmetics are constantly damaging your skin, even though you will not notice until it is too late. They strip your skin of its natural oils, dry out your skin, damage your cells, leave harmful chemicals on the surface of your skin which will not go away even with a good cleanser, and finally, it is actually the use of regular products that will cause your skin to age prematurely.
Organic products will not cause any side effects, and will feed your skin the nutrition it needs to naturally repair itself. Your cells have the ability to replenish themselves on a daily basis. But it cannot do so if it has to fight against harsh chemicals. But give it natural nourishment and you will see the difference in less than a week.
Be kind to your skin – go organic.
