You have probably heard of the benefits of going all natural for the hair by now, but what about the skin? By using natural skin care products you can not only improve the overall appearance of your skin, but most importantly you can improve the health of it too. So, where to begin?
We often get asked about the benefits of using natural skin care vs. synthetic products you might find in a typical drug store environment. Simply put, natural skin care products carry a wide variety of benefits for both the people who use them and the planet. Here are our top 5 benefits of making the switch.
1. They're Better for the Environment
Synthetic chemicals have the potential to harm many animals and plants with which they come in contact with. Not only that, the chemicals in these products can seep into the ground and disrupt any surrounding ecosystem. Keeping that in mind, the manufacturing process for many synthetic skin care brands is also extremely disruptive to the environment.
On the flip side, organic and natural ingredients are typically originated by sustainable farming. Additionally, there are no chemicals used in the production of natural resources, meaning they lessen the load on the earth's resources. Each skin care product at Calia is thoughtfully handmade in small batches, with ingredients sustainably sourced in small quantities.
2. Natural Skin Care is More Gentle On Your Skin
Ingredients you can look out for include Parabens, Sulfates, Petrochemicals, Synthetic Dyes, Propylene Glycol, and Triclosan. Oftentimes, these chemicals can be harsh on the skin and can cause unwanted swelling, itching or redness.
People have been turning to nature since the dawn of time, so it makes sense that the best way to enhance your natural beauty would be to do the same. By staying away from harsh chemicals you can regenerate, nourish and enhance your skin without the risk of any irritants.
3. Natural Skin Care is Packed with Beneficial Nutrients
Natural skin care is packed with plenty of familiar ingredients such as Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, and Sea-buckthorn Oil (to name just a few). These dynamic ingredients can help your body function at optimal levels, while also nourishing the skin.
This is due to the exciting fact that they contain many vitamins and compounds that are beneficial for your overall health, as well as the health of your skin. Our products here at Calia are enriched with several powerful nutrients, including (and not limited to) Beta Carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Magnesium.
4. Natural Skin Care is the Ultimate Protectant Against Anti-Aging
As you age, your skin loses it's ability to produce the necessary oils needed to keep your skin nourished long-term. This is where naturally derived oils step in. These oils, such as our Sea-buckthorn Oil, are rich in antioxidants that protect your skin and help it stay firm and elastic for longer.
Not only that, essential oils such as our Rose Oil contain powerful anti-aging properties. Rose Oil can help naturally regenerate skin cells and boost collagen formation, keeping your skin fresh and vibrant.
5. Natural Products Can Help You Fight Unwanted Acne
Like sensitive skin, there are many things that can help set off a breakout. Harsh beauty products are one of them.
Soothing natural ingredients such as Almond Oil and Avocado Oil (both found in our skin care products) have anti-inflammatory and healing properties, to help both heal and prevent acne.
We understand it can be extremely overwhelming to overhaul your skin care routine, especially when you have been stuck in the same routine for so long. Even by slowly introducing natural skin care product by product, you can still make a meaningful impact on your skin and the planet.
