Most of our skincare products we have been using for years can be potentially harmful. The repercussions of using these products are far-reaching, not only on our health but on the environment too.
It’s time to start a more mindful and natural beauty routine just as women and men did centuries before us.
Mass produced products are pumped with tons of artificial ingredients which could cause potential damage. These synthetic components are meant to preserve and fragrance the products.
We buy them in the hopes of solving a problem area for our skin and in turn this could lead to the cause of hormonal and endocrine imbalances and in some cases worsen your skin’s condition or cause extreme counter effects.
I always say that when it’s difficult to pronounce an ingredient it’s a warning sign. Time to help your skin naturally and start the hunt for unprocessed and clean products.
The closer to nature the natural skincare treatment is the more receptive your skin will become and open to healing.
