How and why Should we Use Natural Products for Skin Care?

Human skin is the largest organ of the human body. Not only does a fairly complex structure, but also performs various functions to preserve life. We can live without spleen, bladder or plant, and we can survive with a kidney or lung, but we can not survive without our skin.

Therefore, it is very important to take care of our skin. The use of natural products for skin care is a good first step in the skin with nutrients and building material to maintain their health and functionality.


What makes our skin really good for us?

Our skin has many features, most are unaware of something going wrong. This includes:

* Regulation of body temperature;
* Protection against the elements;
* Sensation;
* Excretion;
* Immunity;
* Blood storage and
* Synthesis of Vitamin D.

For more information on these more detailed features, you can take a look at this article, “Anatomy and Physiology of the Skin.” In summary, these functions give them our climatic environment that surrounds us in front of some of the bacteria and other potentially harmful insects in our environment, allowing us to experience the touch and feel, remove toxins from our body, blood stores and feeders that Our body vitamin D is protected by our body against UV rays.

Considering these vital functions of the skin, it is no wonder that we have to take care of our skin and make sure that they have every opportunity to function properly and remain healthy.

Why should I choose natural skin care products?

With all the media reports and news available in stores in supermarkets and department stores, many skin care products of potentially toxic ingredients to warn consumers, it is a simple question to answer.

Firstly, most skincare products usually contain artificial ingredients and/or synthetic, since the body fights, and therefore tend to store these chemicals in their tissues. Research has shown that the accumulation of a large number of these substances can have serious effects on health.

If you are interested in learning more about some of the toxic chemicals used in products for skin care, read the article “potentially toxic ingredients in skin care products. “There will be a variety of information and research evidence for you to recognize what is in your skin care products and what should not be there.

Natural skin care products naturally do not contain any artificial or synthetic ingredients. Should contain natural substances isolated, concentrated, such as parabens (preservative pseudo-natural) and others that have been proven potentially dangerous.

How to choose skin care natural products that are safe and effective?

This is where it starts really difficult to get. You see, the so-called many natural products or organic skin care are actually nothing like that. A small amount of aloe vera adding water is not a natural holistically skin care product. It can be “natural” or “organic” but will not be effective and thus a waste of money.

For an effective product of aloe vera, it takes at least 10% of the total Aloe Vera content. Or, Aloe Vera should be combined with several other natural active ingredients that are combined to achieve a certain result.


The term “bio” is another area in which consumers are not misled. Adding a single ingredient called “Bio” and “Bio” is simply wrong. They see the commercials on TV and magazines every day … “XYZ product contains organic and” … but no mention of the other ingredients is made in these products, many of which were dangerous to our health.

There is another problem in skin care natural products that can be confusing and misleading. Ask yourself what exactly is “natural”? Does this really “natural”? The word “natural” picture streaks of nature – untouched environments that give us a good feeling. A safe and natural environment that promotes health and well-being. Spring water, waterfalls, pristine lakes, healthy salads, tropical forests, etc.

The cosmetics industry has in this area and the word, of course, persisted in their ads a sense of well-being and the thought of this product is good for us to convey. Unfortunately, one or two natural ingredients are not a skincare product … Far from being natural skin care should not contain ingredients that are not natural. This brings us to another problem with natural skin care products.

A natural component, such as different forms of parabens, can be dangerous. Think about it – would be arsenic or lead on your skin? No of course not. But of course, so what is the problem? Natural substances can also be a fatal poison.

Applied to skin care products, it can look for a product that contains natural and contains (alpha-hydroxy acids) AHAs, we know to remove dead cell layers of the skin which in turn helps to remove fine lines and wrinkles to the skin.

Now you can buy a product that can be listed as one of its components AHA even lists AHA on your behalf or you can buy a product to contain a concentrate called papain which is a natural substance that is made from the fruit of the papaya. So, yes papain is natural and if this could be called, with other ingredients, a skin care natural products. However, papain is a concentrate and as such many people have experienced side effects because papain is in too high a concentration for some people.

A care product truly holistic natural skin does not contain any papain extract form. Rather, it contains fruit papaya itself. You see, the whole fruit contains papain still, but also contains other ingredients in papaya that change the effect of too much papain. The choice of the product at least significantly reduce the possible side effects of papain because the product is naturally balanced and contains naturally balanced ingredients that will not burn the skin.

The results of removing fine lines and wrinkles can take longer but they are generally better and the ability to “burns” the skin with AHA concentration is reduced. Remember that the alpha hydroxy acid is AHA, and we all know that our skin burns acid.

The use of natural products for skin care?

This is really much more important than most people think. The instructions are a communication from the manufacturer of a product to the consumer, how to use and obtain the best results for a particular product.


It is our experience that most people who buy our natural skincare do not read the instructions and use our products in the same way they use their older brand. However, this may or may not be the right way to use our products.

Properly formulated products contain relatively large amounts of ingredients to achieve the desired results when used according to the effect of product instructions. Means to use more, not better or faster, instead of using too much, may have side effects or no effect more than the lesser amount.

Conversely, if, for example, suggesting that the product is used two or three times a day, it can be used both the choice in most cases to produce an effect. This is obvious when we think to take drugs. We have read the instructions and taking medication, herbs, or other as prescribed, and hopefully get the desired result.

So, why are we doing medication, but ignoring it (mostly) regarding the use of skin care products and other personal care products? Read the instructions carefully and follow them: a) Do not waste your money and b) Achieve the desired results.

Good and bad reactions skin care products or personal care

There are several possible reactions that can occur. There are good reactions and negative reactions. Show good reactions to start.

Good skin reactions to new products

Herbs, essential oils and most other ingredients you have in our range have medical measures and are included for a particular purpose, for example, formulations that make up our products were originally designed for treatment of specific skin health problems.

As you probably know, there are three basic skin types; Normal, bold and dry. In addition, the skin can be sensitive, prone to allergic reactions or under the influence of hormonal changes that occur in the body. Herbs and essential oils in our products are specifically chosen to normalize the skin as one of the skin types. Herbs and essential oils will have a therapeutic effect on the structure and function of the skin, creating an environment where the skin starts to function normally again.

Likewise, it is relevant for sensitive skin that tends to react badly to different stimuli. It is possible, for example, to use a person with sensitive skin to first undergo a reaction of our products, which can be considered as a negative reaction.

However, this can be just the opposite of what actually happens. You see, to improve the health of the skin, you need to change. This change initially appears as a deterioration of a certain skin problem and it is understandable to be interpreted as negative.


Under normal circumstances, however, this type of reaction when the products continue, only a few days and after that time will improve the skin and finish much healthier. This process is sometimes called “first aggravation” and is actually a good thing to happen. This means that the ingredients do what it is supposed to do to repair them and normalize the skin functions. This is a normal reaction and even good.

Bath skin reactions to new products

Obviously, there are times when a new product can actually cause a bad skin reaction. Unfortunately, a poor response often seems very similar to a good response. So how do you know the difference and what should you do?

The first thing to do when to buy the skin or personal new grooming product is to see to try if you have this product side effects. A detailed plan and links that will provide you with all the information you need to provide a new product to try to determine if your skin is negative or not represented.

Try to avoid the products allergic reactions

Another important application of all skin care, personal care or cosmetic products, whether natural or not, the appearance is to first test the products to see if you are allergic to any ingredients.

To do this, follow the steps in our “Skin Patch Test” article, which will provide a simple but effective step test, you can easily ensure for a 24 hour period at home that you will not experience any ingredient reactions Important side in products you use on your face, or anywhere else on your body. This test is simple and very effective.

Finally, before you buy a product, check the ingredients list and see if the ingredients are easy to recognize. In general, if the ingredients are easy to recognize, it is more likely that the ingredients are from a natural source and do not change too much. If on the other hand a degree in chemistry to understand what the ingredient is necessary, it is probably not a natural part holistic. It can still be a natural component, but in concentrated form, it has been isolated and used, perhaps even synthetically.

For most, most skin care natural products are widely available in the market are far from natural or organic substances. Most have minimal amounts of a natural active ingredient in another product and naturally refer to the natural ingredients of the product rather than the nature of the product itself.

Hopefully, this article will clarify the confusion of what is a skin care natural and what does not help you choose natural skin care products that actually meet your expectations, and explain why using natural skin care is a healthier choice.
