Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? Keeping this in mind, skincare should be one of your top priorities in your beauty routine. Skincare can often be neglected or mistreated by using unnatural products which can ultimately damage your skin.

Natural products containing nourishing botanicals are essential for repairing and protecting your skin, many of these products can contain vitamins and minerals that contribute to your skin’s overall good health.

Your skin is your body’s shield against the environments’ impurities such as chemical pollutants, bacteria and the suns’ UV rays. All of these contribute to aging, drying skin and premature wrinkles. Aging can be delayed and even prevented by treating your skin both internally and externally with a variety of natural products such as herbs, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

As we grow older, we begin to notice fine lines in our skin, these are often caused by frowning, squinting and laughing but the biggest cause by far of wrinkles, is the sun and ultra violet light.

To help keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful, try a daily skin care routine which exfoliates and nourishes your skin. Find a treatment which includes naturally occurring alpha and hydroxy acids. Hydroxy acids will penetrate your skin’s deep layers and stimulate cell renewal by exfoliating your skin without damaging it and will help reduce the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles. Some natural soothing and refreshing herbs for the skin include meadowsweet, camelia oleifera (green tea), hyssop, calendula and chamomile.

When you are shopping for natural skin care products ensure they are non-irritating, colour free, fragrance free and cruelty free products. There are many thousands of products available today so take your time to read labels and be sure you are purchasing the right product for you. Once you get to know and use a product you will find ones that not only keep your body healthy and feeling good but keeps you looking good too.

Taking good care of your skin today will help it stand the test of time tomorrow.
