The Green Beauty Guide: Your Essential Resource To Organic Care
The organic industry has been on the rise over the last decade, and reasons for that are more than good. First of all, organic products are much more environmentally-friendly. Besides that, they have multiple health benefits you shouldn’t neglect!
Why switch to organic cosmetics?
Did you know that your skin is actually your largest organ in the body? That’s why you should treat it with respect and provide it with nothing but the best. This is exactly why more and more people are switching to organic products nowadays – apart from organically-sourced foods, they also switch to skincare, makeup, and hair care products made from organic ingredients.
It’s important to know that such ingredients were grown with the specific methods of bio-farming that exclude any kind of chemicals and toxic substances. This means that pesticides, artificial fertilizers can’t find a way to you, which should be your top goal when switching to organics.
Make sure to start slowly
The first thing you should do is to start slowly, which is crucial in order for you not to get overwhelmed with too many changes. Contrary to what the majority of people think, a change you’re about to make doesn’t have to be drastic. This means that you should use up old products, one by one, instead of throwing them away and spending a fortune on brand new organic products.
Besides that, you should begin with the products you use on a daily basis, such as a moisturizer and a mascara, so switch them first and then look for organic alternatives for products you don’t use as often. Remember that organic cosmetic products aren’t a luxury, but a necessity for healthy skin, so treat them that way and you’ll see a great improvement!
Set realistic expectations
Even though organic cosmetics are largely chemical-free, we must say that they usually don’t perform in the same way as conventional products, and that’s exactly because of the lack of chemicals. For example, mascaras made from organic ingredients won’t have the same performance as conventional waterproof mascaras. So, if there’s an important occasion coming up and you need a smudge-proof mascara, be sure to pick a traditional, water-resistant mascara which is vegan and cruelty-free. That’s a great alternative.
When it comes to supplements such as ones that support hair growth, you should definitely pick gummy hair vitamins that are free from artificial colors and flavors, which contain no dairy, egg, fish, and other potential allergens. Just set realistic expectations and you’ll be more than fine!
Always, always check the ingredients
This goes for both your cosmetic products and your food, as people usually don’t have enough time to check the ingredient lists and therefore risk their overall well-being in the long run. Of course, we’re aware of the fact that understanding the labels can be extremely complicated, but it doesn’t have to be like that at all – especially when you have a useful app that checks those for you.
One such app is called CodeCheck, and all you need to do is to scan the barcode and let the app provide a detailed list of ingredients for that particular product. This is a great way to start your transition, so take it into consideration and make a huge step forward!
Don’t let the higher prices put you off
You’ve probably already figured it out, but we have to say that organic cosmetic products are usually more expensive than the conventional ones. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to spend thousands of dollars on them. On the contrary, it means that you’ll think thoroughly before purchase.
Besides that, you won’t end up with dozens of bottles of cheap products all over your bathroom, which is another benefit that shouldn’t be overlooked. The slightly higher price will minimize your consumption, which will help you stay healthy and save a lot of money in the long run. Does it get better than that? We don’t think so!
As you can see, switching to green beauty products has a lot of fantastic advantages you should definitely take into consideration. So, if that’s your ultimate goal, all you have to do is to stick to our tips and guidelines and you’ll make it happen, without a shadow of a doubt!
