There’s unlimited gratification when you find beauty products you love, but when they’re organic, you’re over the moon. How could they possibly be more fantastic? Here are five super ways:
1. Preserve Them Well, So Your Products Will Last
Unfortunately, organic products normally have a shorter shelf life than their chemically-laden counterparts. Sunlight can shorten that life, thus, you want to store your organics in dark places.
Since temperature may also compromise your more natural items, make sure the place you store them in is cool as well. Sometimes, keeping them even colder is necessary to preserve organics and doing so will provide you with even greater benefits.
2. Refrigerate To Make Them More Refreshing
Waking up with a puffy, morning face can feel disastrous, especially if you overslept; however, keeping your favorite organic eye cream and skin serum in the refrigerator provides an instantaneous, highly effective solution.
You know ice calms that puffy skin, especially around your eyes, well, so will your skin care products, which will shave a lot of time off the clock. Getting your face ready can be fast, easy and refreshing when you keep your products cold.
3. Review Your Favorite Organic Products
Just because a beauty product is organic, doesn’t automatically mean it works well; however, you really have no way of knowing until you buy them – unless you find out from a review someone else took the time to write. If you love your organic beauty products, tell the world.
Other people will find the information helpful and you’ll quite possibly be saving them a lot of money. Check back on your review and look for comments or questions; the conversations should prove interesting and you’re very likely to pick up a few tips and tricks from the people you speak with.
4. Use Them As Directed
As tempting as it is to pamper your skin with too much cream or lotion – especially the ones that smell and feel so heavenly – this isn’t always healthiest for your skin.
Using the recommended amount is best, even if the item is organic and sometimes, most especially when it’s organic, as some of nature’s potions are very potent. Read the instructions and be sure to follow them.
5. Make Organic A Way Of Life, Not Just A Few Products In Your Bathroom
Applying organic gloss to your lips, only to extend your lashes with mascara containing formaldehyde (which is found in numerous products that aren’t organic) is nearly pointless, so it’s important to adopt an organic way of life, rather than simply adding a few healthy items to your shopping cart. Shampoos containing sodium laureth sulfate aren’t good for your hair or skin either, in fact, it’s a known cancer-causing carcinogen.
You might think there’s just so little toxicity to your products that it really can’t hurt you, but while each bottle may contain a minute amount, if you add them all up, at the end of the day, your body is absorbing more chemicals than it can handle. They’re in your toothpaste, hair spray, nail polish and remover, mascara, deodorant and more, not even including the ingredients that might be in your food!
Eating organic and making everything that touches your skin organic ensures you’re absorbing fewer toxins, possibly preventing simple complications such as rashes and breakouts, to things far more complex and threatening, like endocrine and hormonal system disruptions or even cancer.
Treating yourself well, such as with organic beauty products, actually helps you to look better, in addition to being healthier. You have that glow that comes from the inside out and really reflects the love and respect you have for yourself. If only everything in your life was as fantastic and luxurious as your favorite organic products!
