Choose organic products for your skin type

Makeup has become an everyday item of many a people. And not only recently, but for centuries it has been present as a way of beautifying personal appearance. For example, the Egyptian queen Cleopatra is famous for her beauty and make-up – she even painted her nails! What has changed over the course of time is that the techniques have advanced, and so has the production of make-up. This production process, even though it gives fascinating results, leaves heavy marks on the planet.

Organic is Earth-friendly

Every day, more and more people are starting to opt for more natural products, which do not pollute the Earth and are animal friendly (not tested on animals). For example, in winter, our skin needs more protection because it gets dry faster and is susceptible to breaking. In order to avoid this, we need to give it extra care, and organic products without additives can prevent it from drying or being itchy. Not only do they contain less (if any) additives, but their production does not pollute the planet so our conscience can rest.

So, if you want to find out what organic products your skin needs, keep reading and learn how to save the environment in the following paragraphs.

Natural skin care routine for your skin

Finding out which skin type you have will determine the kind of products you should use and organic skin care routine:

  • Oily skin needs to be exfoliated with a mixture of sea salt and olive or almond oil (in equal parts) that create a natural scrub which removes impurities without drying the skin too much. Any skin type can be cleansed with oil, however, oily skin needs more castor oil to keep it from becoming excessively oily (you can mix it with olive oil in 1/2+1/2 or 2/3+1/3 scale). Although sometimes oil cleansing will be enough to keep oily skin moist, you can sometimes add a light layer of coconut oil or diluted apple cider vinegar to keep it toned.

  • Normal/Combination skin can be exfoliated with home-made sugar scrub (a mixture of 1/2 cup of sugar + 1/2 cup of an essential oil). You can clean this type of skin with oil cleansing because it balances it nicely (mix 1/4 cup of castor oil with 3/4 of either olive/almond/etc. oil). Moisturising is also important but not obligatory, so if you feel the need, you can use coconut oil or shea butter alone to keep the skin moist, or ‘cook’ a home-made lotion.

  • Dry skin demands special care in all seasons. This skin type will be most grateful if you start using organic, 100 percent pure body wash and other natural products. Due to its natural dryness, this skin type oftentimes does not require exfoliation, but if you feel to you can remove dead skin cells with the aforementioned home-made sugar scrub. In order to prevent the skin from drying out by using castor oil (it naturally dries it), you should use only a teaspoon of castor oil and a 1/4 cup of some other oil (oil or almond) as a cleansing tool. Moisturising should be the key step so you can use plain organic shea butter to effectively give it enough water. These options all work for ageing skin (which dries faster), so you can use them as anti-ageing skin routine as well.

 

Obviously, our existence on this planet is determined by the things we do to it. This means caring for the environment and preventing its further damaging. Even though organic skin care products are slightly more expensive than regular, they are better not only for your skin, but for the planet as well because they pay off on the long run.
