So, are natural skin care products the answer to all your skin problems? What if a natural skin care product is not available for the treatment of a particular skin disorder? Are synthetic skin care products really so harmful that they should be banned?
Different people have varied answers to these questions. However, the reality is that, due to the presence of synthetic preservatives, it’s really tough to find a natural skin care product that is 100% natural. There are natural skin care products that have natural preservatives, but their cost might be a deterrent to the common consumer. Moreover, such skin products have a shorter shelf life and hence, are not preferred by manufacturers.
Some people carry the wrong notion that since natural skin care products are natural, they cannot cause any harm to the skin. The suitability of a skin care product is not based on whether it is synthetic or natural. An unsuitable natural skin care product can harm you in almost the same way as a synthetic one. So, use natural skin care products, but be open to synthetic ones too. You might need them when a natural solution is not available at all.
Your selection of a natural skin care product should be based on 3 factors:
* The skin type of the person who will use the product
* The climatic conditions in which it will be used (e.g., a hot and humid environment would warranty the use of oil-free natural skin care products)
* The method of application/use of the product. A great natural skin care product can seem useless if not used in the proper way.
You can also create natural skin care products by yourself, using the recipes that are readily available on the internet and in the books at book stores.
The use of organic fruits and vegetables is also a popular natural skin care regimen. Some essential oils and herbal oils are also useful and are known for their moisturising and antiseptic properties.
However, using a natural skin care product does not mean that you can exercise carelessness with other aspects of your skin care. Natural skin care products should be used together with the following ‘essential’ recommendations: healthy eating habits, regular exercise, drinking lots of water, and maintaining overall cleanliness. This will then form a perfect and completely natural skin care routine that will help you maintain a healthy and beautiful skin for a long time.
