Many people claim that they are pursuing a healthy lifestyle and point to their balanced diet and exercise regime as proof. That’s great—but what about other aspects of their lives?
The average person lathers and sprays five or more beauty products onto their skin every day, unknowingly exposing the biggest organ in their body to the potentially harmful, harsh chemicals present in most commercial skincare products.
In a previous post, we outlined three important reasons to make an immediate switch to natural skin care products. We are adding to that list with three more benefits that will hopefully urge you to make the switch ASAP!
1. Natural Skincare Products Are Packed With Nutrients
A quick look at a product’s ingredient list will expose the simple truth: commercially available skincare products are made up mostly of chemicals synthesized in laboratories. While capable of performing their stated functions, there is a real danger in exposing your skin to these chemicals day in and day out.
On the other hand, natural skincare products are made from products found in nature, providing endless benefits to the skin and body. Organically-grown plants contain much higher levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and compounds than their synthetic counterparts. These help prevent pigmentation, protect your skin from free radicals, and generally help the body function at optimal levels.
A Daima’s Serengeti Sunrise facial oil, for example, blends rare oils and extracts from East Africa to help reduce dark marks and wrinkles, renew skin, and soothe with natural aromas. Just pour 3 to 5 drops of this oil into your hand and carefully pat it on your face. Massage it into your skin with upward and outward motions. You can do this once in the morning and once at night. There will be visible reductions in fine lines on the neck and pigmentation on the face with continued use.
The Serengeti Sunrise is comprised primarily of:
- Abyssinian oil – reduces hyperpigmentation, improve skin tone
- Baobab oil – improves skin elasticity
- Tamanu oil – promotes collagen production and healing of damaged skin
2. Natural Skincare Products Are Cruelty-Free
Many skin care companies have abandoned their practices of testing products on animals—but some still outsource their inhumane practices to other countries. It can be difficult to parse which brands or companies are 100% cruelty-free because they comprise so many subsidiaries.
Instead of going down search engine rabbit holes to try to figure out if your preferred brand really doesn’t harm animals, it’s much easier to make the switch to natural beauty products. These manufacturers do not harm other living beings and source all of their ingredients ethically.
3. Natural Skincare Products Protect Against Anti-Aging
There are hundreds of anti-aging products available in the market today. Many of them show excellent efficacy when it comes to collagen production and removing fine lines. Still, chemically-infused products will always come with harsh ingredients that will dry out your skin.
Meanwhile, natural skincare products contain naturally derived, highly nourishing oils that your skin needs to stay healthy and elastic for decades to come!
It can be challenging to switch to something new if you’ve been accustomed to doing things one way for a very long time. This certainly applies to skincare products—avid users grow attached to individual routines. But a close examination of synthetic vs. natural products will show you that you can make a better choice. Natural beauty products are out there waiting to help your skin look fantastic!
