Do Organic Skin Care Products Work,
There is a fine balance between finding organic skin care products that are healthy, and ones that truly get results.
I am a skin care addict and love trying new lines… especially ones which are organic and chemical free. Checking out new natural and organic skin care products is something I am passionate about.
Obviously using chemical free products on this skin is preferable to risking cancer later on but at the same time, we all want to see results.
You’ve seen those amazing after and before photos where it looks like the wrinkles literally are erased, Well… let’s use some common sense, shall we,
First of all, good skin is about more than just what products you utilize. It also comes from drinking enough water so that our skin cells are plump and hydrated, as well as from eating the right foods and reducing stress in our lives.
Ideally, you desire your skin to be a pure and natural as possible, like a new born baby. So learn how to read labels for both the good as well as the bad.
Finding a line which is healthy but also works for your type of skin may take a little experimenting on your part.
I have used and compared many different natural skin care lines and also have worked for a couple different skin care companies, so I could possibly help you narrow down your search for any good organic anti aging line you will be happy with. Below are a few beneficial ingredients to look for in a skincare product, as well as ingredients to avoid.
First, let’s look at the good ingredients… those that make a difference:
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Vitamin C Ester
Alpha Hydroxy and Beta Hydroxy Acids
There are a ton of ingredients to avoid in skin care and beauty items but here are a few that are high on the ‘do not use’ list…
Dyes or Colouring Agents
Sodium Laurel/Laureth Sulfate
Mineral Oil or anything related to petroleum (usually starts with ‘petro’)
Of course, extreme raw foodists like David Wolfe will recommend such things as Olive Oil or Coconut Oil for your skin, but I personally find those a bit greasy for me, and am tend to break out in pimples after i put oil directly on my skin.
Other skin care experts, like Dr. Perricone, agree that by using the right products, you can literally reverse aging.
Remember though, great skin and anti aging is about more than organic skincare products. Lifestyle plays a BIG role.
The time in my life I got probably the most wrinkles was not from the products I used or my biological age. It was the time when stress was high… especially when it reached finances.
The restless nights worrying and the nagging fear at the back of my mind when the real estate market crashed, and lost a lot, put more wrinkles on my face than anything. A few gray hairs popped up too!
