Some people believe natural matters and some don’t. Some people don't care about natural and the ones that do can’t even agree on what “natural” really means. And while everyone has their opinion, there is evidence that points to natural and organic skincare as being superior to chemical and artificial ingredient filled skincare products. Perhaps the most convincing pieces of evidence are the results from using natural and organic products.
When I say skincare results, I am not just talking about the immediate effects, but long term effects as well. In fact, the long term effects are perhaps the most important results because they are a true testament to what’s actually going on with the products you’re using. If the skincare products you’re using don’t yield long term results that are better than the effects you see in the short term with that product, then it’s not worth your time and money. And that’s where natural skincare comes in.
Natural skincare comes into the realm of greater efficacy over time rather than conventional skincare because, when properly formulated and sourced, the ingredients in each and every formula work to strengthen, protect and enhance your skin’s natural regenerative processes. Natural skincare ingredients like wildcrafted geranium, plant peptides, and seabuckthorn oil are all perfectly equipped to repair and support your skin. If you think about it, it’s what they exist to do in the first place. The same just cannot be said for harsh chemicals and cheaply sourced, poor quality ingredients.
What can be said for poor quality ingredients is that instead of contributing to the overall wellness and youth of your skin, they actually end up aiding in the development of premature signs of aging that nobody wants. But that's how things go when your skin is forced to deal daily with the stress of trying to protect itself from petroleum based, harsh ingredients and skincare products that aren’t formulated with optimal results in mind.
When it comes down to it, using natural skincare is worth it. Whether or not you choose to go super simple and try one product or dive in and do a complete skincare overhaul, your skin will thank you. Treat yourself to better skincare. Treat yourself to natural skincare. Treat yourself to healthy skin.
