Posted Jul 26 2009 10:01pm
Embracing holistic practices and natural health remedies involves a life long process of learning and experience. As more people begin to understand the philosophies behind holistic beauty and treatment practices, the awareness increases and this can lead to a lifestyle conversion.
As some of you may know, there are some very harmful chemicals used in manufacturing the most common inorganic skin care products and make-up items. Such chemicals are very easily absorbed by skin but human body can’t get rid of them. So these toxins remain inside and eventually get spread in the body causing damage throughout.
Organic skin care products provide skin the strength and treatment that it needs to defend itself against foreign attacks and disturbing conditions. Use of organic products enables skin to enhance to its greatest potential and a strengthened and healthy skin gives youth and vigor to a person. So it’s both healthy and smart to use holistic beauty products.
Organic products are a little costly when compared to inorganic products. However, it’s a small price to pay for the beauty and health of your skin. You should view it as an investment, just like how you would invest in good patio furniture covers to protect your favourite furniture, you should also protect your skin from inorganic harm. Moreover, people who use inorganic products end up spending more money on anti-ageing and skin cleansing products to correct the bad effects on their skin.
There is also some debate about what can be considered organic? Some people say that for a product to be organic even the plant that it’s derived from must be grown in a non-toxic and chemical-free environment. So you can’t simply close your eyes and trust any organic product. Make sure that the organic product you choose actually does not contain any substance that’s bad for skin.
Organic Skin care is also not only about creams, lotions and ointments. We don’t always have to use all the modern products for our skin. We can even try some home-made remedies that can make our skin look healthy and beautiful. However, always try to get an expert’s advice before applying anything to your skin. Just keep one simple thing in mind, ‘don’t put anything on your skin that you would not put in your mouth’.
Another good reason to switch to holistic beauty products is that they are environment-friendly. There are no synthetic chemicals and fertilizers used in organic farming which means less water, soil and air pollution. So next time when you choose natural health remedies for your skin care, consider organic skin care product over its inorganic counterpart, not only are you being nice on yourself but you’re helping the environment also.
