Your Skin is Sacred: 5 Reasons You Should Switch to Natural Skincare
Your skin is your body’s largest organ and the one that is most visible. It comes in daily contact with pollutants and pathogens and is your first line of defense against illness. Your skin does so much to keep you healthy it’s important to take the time to take care of your skin. Using natural skincare products will help stave off the effects of aging and keep you looking your best without the addition of toxic chemicals.
Anything you put on your skin, be it creams or oils, can enter your bloodstream. Many of the leading mass-market skincare lines are filled with additives, parabens and ingredients whose names you can’t pronounce. Natural skincare is a healthy alternative. Here are some of the reasons you should make the switch.
Less Chance of Reaction
Many of the leading brands in skincare use parabens, phthalates and synthetic ingredients in their formulations. Putting all of these nasty ingredients on your skin ups your chances of having a reaction. This can include burning, redness, itchiness or inflammation. Unless you are otherwise allergic, using a natural coconut oil or rose cream will not irritate your skin – because they are natural and from the earth!
Plants and other natural ingredients have been used medicinally and in beauty formulas for thousands of years. Many natural ingredients have healing properties. Coconut oil, for example, is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. Not only can it gently remove makeup and other debris, but it moisturizes your skin while also preventing harmful pathogens from entering your body. That certainly is a multi-tasking product! Natural skincare allows you to beautify your skin while also helping it heal.
Health and Well-being
There has been a lot of recent research revealing how carcinogens and other toxic chemicals are standard in many personal care products. While many products are stringently tested for safety, the jury is still out on the effects of long-term use. Products containing these types of ingredients can contribute to health issues such as hormone disruption. Natural products are simple and clean without the worry of illness later.
Save Money and Time
Beyond the health benefits, switching to natural skincare is friendly to your wallet. Because many natural ingredients such as coconut oil are so versatile, you get more bang for your buck in that you don’t need as many products to get the same benefits. Some skincare routines call for up to 12 steps, but brands like Cocoili have consolidated all the necessary products to just three. This is a huge savings of cost and time. Instead of standing in front of your mirror in the morning going through 12 different products, try a natural routine and spend more time relaxing with your morning coffee.
All of these harsh chemicals inevitably get washed down the drain. They then contribute to the pollution of water and further fuel the cycle. Natural skincare products do not harm the environment since they do not have harmful toxins. Further, many natural brands use recyclable or refillable packaging cutting down on waste.
The benefits of using natural skincare products are numerous. Cocoili has a wide variety of products to help you beautify and protect your skin, without any nasty ingredients or surprises. Try our line of coconut oil-based skincare products.
