How To Make The Switch To All-Natural Skin Care
3 WAYS TO CHANGE OVER TO NATURAL PRODUCTS FOR YOUR SKIN
There are so many beauty products available to us nowadays.
Walk down the aisles of any drugstore, and you’ll see hundreds of beauty products that make all sorts of promises.
The problem is everything we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bodies.
Ordinary skin care products are often filled with chemicals we would never consider allowing in our bodies if we were eating them.
But we’re used to all those chemicals, right? They are normal to us. And before we transition to all-natural products, it can feel like we need them.
That’s because a lot of those ingredients seem to work in the short-term. They can clean our skin, stop breakouts, give us a little extra color—even as they’re wreaking havoc on our system (and the planet!) in the long run.
When you’re first making the switch to using all-natural products, you may wonder whether simple ingredients will really do the job. But if you’re like us, once you make the switch, you won’t want to go back.
Here are a few things we found helpful in making this transition...
1. Give it time.
Any time you radically change up your skin care routine, there’s a bit of an adjustment period.
Your skin is sensitive. It’s a living organism. Making a big shift in your skin care routine is like making a big change in your diet—it takes time to adjust and get used to the new normal.
When you first change over, you might notice differences—maybe your skin is a little oilier than normal. Maybe it’s drier.
The good news: We are adaptable creatures. We got used to using chemicals on our skin, and we can also adapt to natural ingredients.
When we make the switch to simpler, more natural ingredients, sometimes we can react in odd ways as our bodies reconnect with their natural equilibrium.
Some women even have a “detox” reaction when they stop using chemicals on their skin.
Instead of taking this as a sign something is wrong or that your skin doesn’t “like” the new products, try giving it a couple weeks. Give your body a chance to shift back into its natural balance.
2. Remember your connection to the planet.
Sometimes when you’re in a bumpy transition or shifting a habit, it can be helpful to reconnect to the “why” of what you’re doing.
Choosing to stop using chemical products has a huge impact—not just on your body—but on our world.
It impacts our oceans and waterways, the animals that coexist with us, and the air we all breathe. Shifting to using all-natural ingredients is a gift not only to yourself, but to the entire planet.
When you’re in a transition that takes a little extra effort (and all transitions take some extra effort!) it can help to remind yourself of why that transition is good not only for you, but for others as well.
3. Experiment to find out what works.
The first natural products you try may be the perfect fit—or it might take some time to find the ones that really work with your unique constitution.
If the first all-natural products don’t work for you (even after an adjustment period), you may need to experiment with a few before you find what you love.
For example, Vitamin C and Retinol are our two all-natural serums. Each work a little differently. Vitamin C is deeply penetrates into the skin, while Retinol is treat and remove acne and pimples, undo skin damage, shrink the pores, improve the rough phenomenon caused by the acne and soothe the skin.
By experimenting with both, our customers have discovered which works for them—and which one their skin “likes” best.
Try experimenting with different natural products until you find the ones you love. Your skin—and the planet—will thank you for it!
