If you are considering trying herbal skincare, here are a few benefits you’ll notice straight away. There are a few misconceptions about this type of skin care that still persist and this tends to put people off using it.
That’s a shame because to me it’s a complete no brainer. I’ll give you three good reasons why you should use herbal skincare.
Firstly – and this is important because this is the reason why we all buy skin care in the first place, using natural skincare products like herbal skincare is actually better for your skin. This is because it is absorbed more easily and will penetrate deeply into the pores of the skin. This translates into skin that is more supple and can resist things like atmospheric pollution and harsh weather conditions.
I do understand when you say that herbal skincare is sometimes more expensive than skin care that’s based on chemicals, but that’s no longer always the case. It is now possible to buy herbal skin care that’s very reasonably priced. It used to be a valid objection, I agree. However, that’s because most chemical skincare is formulated with mineral oil. Mineral oil is a cheap petroleum based product which is not absorbed properly into the skin. It sits on the skin’s surface where it clogs pores and can cause pimples and acne.
Secondly, and this is really crucial, herbal skincare will never damage your skin or health in any way. So long as it does not contain chemical preservatives and fragrances, it will do no harm to the body. And, what you may not want to hear is that some of the chemicals found in skin care tend to lodge in the fatty tissues of the body. If you are overweight, this means you could be playing host to an enormous amount of chemicals and toxins. Plus, worse still, there is some evidence that these types of chemicals may cause cancer and immune system damage and those are things you want to avoid at all costs.
Third and lastly, most herbal skincare is not tested on animals, which for me is a very important consideration. Although public opinion has now stopped a lot of animal testing for skincare products, it still happens in certain parts of the world.
Taking all this into consideration, there are some pretty compelling reasons in support of using herbal skincare. I’ve used it pretty much all my life and you can certainly see the benefits over time. Have a healthy skin, support animal welfare and save money on highly priced chemical cosmetics. To me it simply makes sense.
