The Journey To Healthy Skin

Updated: Feb 26, 2019

Is Natural Necessary?

When did you first really notice your skin's health, tone and texture? 

Most people become distinctly aware of their skin's appearance in adolescence. The occasional or acute acne that seems to sabotage our reflection in the mirror and dampen any self confidence has been an ongoing struggle from youth.

And as our skin matures, it reflects our journey through life, the passage of time, our lifestyle, our health, hormones, genetic qualities and our environment...all of which can be a plus or minus in our complexions. 

So, let's discuss Why Natural is Necessary in your Journey to Healthy Skin....

Using 100% Pure Skin Care products that are rich in antioxidants and natural anti-bacterial properties is vital to a healthy appearance. It quickly absorbs and replenishes lost moisture (associated with aging) at a cellular level, rejuvenating skin cells and nourishing damaged layers.   

Alternative Health Expert, Dr. Edward Group with The Global Healing Center offers insight on how to Protect our skin with Natural Ingredients:

"Think about all of the products you may use on a daily basis that may come in contact with your skin. Clothes, moisturizers, cleansers, fragrances, city treated water during showering, deodorant, the list goes on. Remember, it’s not only what you eat that matters, but also what you put on your skin. Natural skin care is one of the best choices you can make for your health."

Protecting your Skin

"As the largest organ of the body, your skin not only absorbs lots of nutrients, but it can also take in a number of toxins each day. Since your skin acts as your body’s barrier against those toxins, it’s so important to be aware of just what you’re using! If you’re putting dangerous ingredients on your skin, you can bet those are getting into your body—exactly where they don’t belong.

For example, many traditional skin care products can contain endocrine-disrupting phthalates or parabens. [1] While these poisons can cause reproductive issues, they’re also linked to increased cancer risk, and studies also suggest the more products you use, the higher toxic concentrations can get in your body. [2] And, because cosmetics are notorious for having these toxic ingredients, I suggest avoiding makeup completely. But if you must use it, why not look for natural or organic makeup instead?"

Benefits of Natural Ingredients

"Many of us can use up to 10 skin care products each day; that could be 10 products full of toxic chemicals! Going organic with your skin care routine will help your skin and body steer clear of those toxins—and there are other perks! A recent study suggests using natural ingredients for skin care can help treat hyperpigmentation and inflammation, while another comments on how it can help with photoaging (skin damage caused by the sun’s rays over our lifetimes)." 

Now that you understand the importance of protecting your skin from harmful products, the next step is choosing your products wisely. Visit our previous Blog Insights for more helpful tips.
