Each day, the average woman lathers, sprays, and rubs at least ten skin care products onto her body. She gives little thought to how the ingredients in those products might affect her health.
Many skin care products are filled with chemicals, many of which are claimed to be safe in small dosages. However, nobody can say with certainty that continuous exposure to these chemicals won’t harm you.
Fortunately, you can get the same great results by using organic skin care products, without all the risk. Check out these four organic skin care ingredients to get beautiful results.
Not only is papaya great when used in a facial scrub, your skin also benefits tremendously when you eat it. It is packed full of vitamins A and C.
Vitamin A regulates cell turnover, producing much of the same results as retinal-A produces when used topically, but much more gently.
Vitamin C helps make your skin brighter and tighter.
Papaya also contains papain, a very beneficial digestive enzyme that combats inflammation, resulting in less redness in your skin.
Black Sesame Seeds
The skin can lose much of its elasticity and radiance over a lifetime of late nights, alcohol consumption, and indulgence of unhealthy foods. Black sesame seeds are beneficial for helping to restore the natural balance of your skin.
They are packed with amino acids, oleic acid, essential fats, fiber, and potassium.
They can be found as an ingredient in many skin care products, and can also be added to salads and smoothies to give your skin an added boost.
Your first thought for skin care might not be lemon juice. But you’d be making a mistake not to include it in your beauty regimen, especially if you suffer from oily skin. It helps to reduce breakouts by removing old hormones and fat-soluble toxins that have accumulated on your skin.
Lemon juice also naturally emulsifies fats to keep your skin well hydrated and the rind contains limonoid which eliminates bad bacterial in the mouth and intestinal track, helping to prevent acne flare-ups.
Products that contain organic tomato will benefit your skin by helping to prevent UVA and UVB damage. This is because of the large amounts of lycopene that is contained in tomatoes, which can reinvigorate even the dullest of skin to bring it back to life.
If you’re like to spend a lot of time at the beach, be sure that you eat a lot of tomato paste. According to the Universities of Newcastle & Manchester, women who ate tomato paste had 33% more protection from sunburn.
Use these organic skin care ingredients and avoid unnecessary exposure to potentially harmful chemicals that you’ll find in conventional skin care products.
You deserve to have beautiful, radiant skin but you don’t have to risk your health to get it. You can even make many of your own skin care products with healthy ingredients right from your own pantry. There’s truth to the old axiom, “food is medicine.”
