3 WAYS TO CHANGE OVER TO NATURAL PRODUCTS FOR YOUR SKIN
The quantity of skincare products expands every year all you need do is walk down the aisles of any chemist, or the beauty section in the supermarket and you’ll see hundreds of beauty products that make all sorts of promises.
The problem is everything we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bodies.
Ordinary skin care products are often filled with chemicals we would never consider allowing in our bodies if we were eating them.
Switching to all-natural skin care means using products that are healthy for your skin and your body—and the planet as a whole.
Here are a few things you might find helpful in making the transition to all natural..
1. Give it time.
Any time you radically change up your skin care routine, there’s a bit of an adjustment period.
When you first change over, you might notice differences—maybe your skin is a little oilier than normal. Maybe it’s drier.
The good news: We are adaptable creatures. We got used to using chemicals on our skin, and we can also adapt to natural ingredients.
When we make the switch to simpler, more natural ingredients, sometimes we can react in odd ways as our bodies reconnect with their natural equilibrium.
Instead of taking this as a sign that your skin doesn’t “like” the new products, try giving it a couple weeks. Give your body a chance to shift back into its natural balance.
2. Remember your connection to the planet.
Choosing to stop using chemical products has a huge impact—not just on your body—but on our world.
It impacts our oceans, waterways, animals, and the air we all breathe. Shifting to using all-natural ingredients is a gift not only to yourself, but to the entire planet.
When you’re in a transition that takes a little extra effort, it can help to remind yourself of why that transition is good not only for you, but for others as well.
3. Experiment to find out what works.
If the first all-natural products don’t work for you, you may need to experiment with a few before you find what you love.
For example, Bali Balance and Sensatia Botanicals have a range of products for different skin types. By experimenting our customers have discovered which works for them—and which one their skin “likes” best.
Try experimenting with different natural products until you find the ones you love. Your skin—and the planet—will thank you for it!
