Skincare is an amazing thing – let’s be honest, we couldn’t live without it. But how many times do we check the back of the bottle to see what kinds of chemicals we’re applying to our skin? Depending on your skin type, using products with added chemicals can be the cause of skin problems, such as acne, eczema or dry skin. Organic and natural skincare products are far less harmful to your body and can be a great alternative. But what exactly are they?
When the word natural is used in skincare, it means that the product contains ingredients that are a plant, mineral or animal by-product. Organic refers to how the ingredient was farmed, e.g. without chemical fertilisers, pesticides, or growth hormones, etc. Changing your skincare routine to organic products can be quite a challenge and in most cases impossible. So first, start to switch your drugstore skincare products for natural alternatives, you can also include a few organic ones, like a 100% certified organic rosehip oil – it’s all about balance after all!
