The Basics of Good Skincare

With so many beauty fads and bizarre treatments, it’s easy to lose sight of what your skin really needs. In reality, beauty stems from nature and good skincare does not need to be expensive or complex, it starts with the basics.

Enough Water

One of the most important factors to healthy skin is hydration. Water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion, enabling your body and skin to get rid of toxins which allows for your skin to be more radiant and glowing.  If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water it needs, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky.  Aim for at least eight glasses of water each day and your skin will thank you for it.

Sufficient Sleep

Insufficient sleep is one of the leading causes of premature aging.  The time spent while your body is shut down and sleeping is used to repair and restore your cellular tissues, ensuring skins optimal vitality.  If you don’t get your 7-8 hours of sleep each night, your skin will appear dull, unhealthy and more prone to wrinkles and breakouts.  Adequate sleep will keep you feeling healthier and looking younger for longer.

Avoiding UV Radiation

A bit of sun is great for your skin as it stimulates the production of Vitamin D, but too much sun will damage your skin and promote early onset of wrinkles and pigmentation. Now lets face it none of us want to age, but there is a difference in premature aging and graceful aging.  We cant stop the aging process completely, but we can do things to slow it down a little bit.

Avoid direct exposure and apply sunblock whenever you have to go out during the day, remember even when the sun is hiding, the UV rays are not. So be sure to still apply sunblock on overcast days.

Nature’s Touch

Finally, opt for cruelty free natural cosmetics over products that contain countless artificial ingredients, chemicals, fragrances and preservatives.

Be realistic and mindful of the fact  that most skincare products (even organic) ones do require a preservative to prevent product decomposition.  Some preservatives however, have been well researched and found to do more harmful than others,  be sure to do your research on the list of ingredients before you apply them to your skin.

Organic Skincare 

At Organic Skincare I pride myself on using only natural and organic ingredients, avoiding toxic and dangerous artificial chemicals and fragrances, making the product range a good choice for all those health conscious of what they are putting on their skin.

The range is specifically designed for those with sensitive skin and individuals who have skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and/or dry or problem skin.

Compared to conventional, mass-produced cosmetics, all our products are kind to your skin and friendly towards the environment, Organic Skincare products are both vegan friendly and cruelty free.

For an idea that was born in my kitchen as an experiment, Organic Skincare has certainly turned into something much greater.  A skincare range that is helping people with various skin conditions achieve superior results, which is reflected in our excellent customer feedback over the years.
