We need to treat our skin as a very important organ because it is just that. What we put onto our skin determines the health, well being and beauty of our skin. Toxins enter the body through the skin, the air we breathe and the food we eat. When we use cheap chemical based products on our skin we are feeding our skin 'junk food!' Most store bought creams and lotions are loaded with chemicals and additives.
With proper care and nutrients our skin can look and feel younger. There are so many products on the market today its hard to discern what we should use. Look for products with ingredients you can pronounce. Whenever possible buy organic or wild harvested.
You should be able to contact the company you buy your skin care products from and ask them to explain why their product is a good choice.
It's a good idea to exfoliate your skin one to three times a week with a mild exfoliator in order to remove dead skin cells, opening up the pathway for moisturizers to penetrate your dermal layers, revealing a healthier glowing complexion.
Skin toners made with natural mild ingredients like witch hazel, floral waters and essential oils and extracts; tone, tighten and moisturize dull skin.
A good moisturizer and or face serum should absorb quickly into your pores and leave your skin feeling supple and slightly dewy.
And last but not least, hydrate your skin by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Your skin thrives on moisture and will look more youthful once the skin cells are bathed in water.
