Why You Should Choose All-Natural & Organic Skincare Products

Why You Should Choose All-Natural & Organic Skincare Products

Did You Know?

The skin is our body’s largest organ and up to 60% of some of the chemicals we apply to our skin may be absorbed into the bloodstream?

We go through a daily combination of cleansers, toners, serums, day and night creams, eye gels, shower gels, body lotions, lip balms, etc., but how many of us are actually aware of what goes into these beauty products? If you have not been paying attention, well it is time to do so now.

Eczema is a common skin condition, which is characterized by dry, red and itchy skin. In recent years, there has been a drastic rise in the numbers of children being affected by eczema, especially in developed countries.

In Singapore, for instance, about one in five children and one in 10 adults suffer from eczema. If not managed properly, eczema can have a negative impact on one’s quality of life.

Unlike dietary toxins which will be detoxified by the enzymes in our liver, what we apply to our skin goes directly into the bloodstream. Skin sensitivities is one of the main reason for people turning to all-natural or organic skincare.

But what if you are not a sufferer? Does that mean that you don’t have to switch to using all-natural or organic skincare?

Perhaps, let me leave you with this question:
“If you avoid chemicals in your diet, why not do the same for your beauty regime?”

What Happens to Your Skin When You Switch to Using Organic Skincare Products?

When making the first switch to using organic skin care products, you might experience skin detoxification symptoms, such as breakouts, as this is the body’s way of cleansing itself from toxins. This is especially true for those with acne prone or sensitive skin. Although such reactions can happen when you use new products, the side effects are usually greater if your skin has become addicted to the harsh ingredients used in conventional skincare products.

The side effects of this ‘skin detox’ may continue up to a week or two, but if you continue using organic skincare products, you will start to notice a visible difference to your skin.

What Should You Look Out for In All-Natural or Organic Skincare Products?

The key thing to remember is not the ingredients that are present in skincare products but rather the ones that are absent.

Organic skincare products usually do not contain parabens, sodium laureth sulphates (SLS), synthetic chemicals, dyes, ethanol/ethyl-alcohol, preservatives, fillers, petroleum-derived ingredients (e.g. mineral oil, lanolin), or artificial colours and fragrances.

Did You Know?

  1. Most commercial personal-care products contain a high concentration of synthetic chemicals. These chemicals provide a ‘nice’ feeling on the skin, but they often offer few, if not no, benefits to the skin.

  2. Some of these synthetic chemicals are also known as “penetration enhancers”, because they help other ingredients to penetrate through the skin more easily. This could result in more toxins entering and depositing themselves in areas of the skin where they are usually not found in, such as organs and fatty tissues.
