There is so much you need to know about organic skincare. Most people think organic means the food you eat, but that’s not always true. Organic skincare is something entirely different, even if the foods you eat still contain organic ingredients.

What You Need to Know About Organic Beauty Products
But organic skin care is not just about the ingredients; it’s about the whole process. When you care for your skin with organic beauty products and techniques, you are working with your body’s natural healing systems, balancing your skin’s pH level, improving circulation, boosting your immune system, cleansing pores and softening the skin, while preserving vital nutrients and fighting free-radical damage. Organic skin care products should contain only natural ingredients because these are the ones that your body can actually use. If a product is made from synthetic chemicals, it’s best to keep looking for another brand.
One of the keys to successful organic skin care is to balance the levels of chemicals your body uses against naturally occurring compounds called “free radicals”. These naturally occur in the environment (and in your body) and are created by things like UV rays from the sun, cigarette smoke, air pollution, etc. The molecules of these naturally occurring radicals are extremely tiny and can attach to any healthy tissue. But when they become too big, they damage our cells, cause inflammation, and lead to many serious diseases like cancer.
