It’s inevitable. Dirt, grime, and oil build up on the skin on any given day. Skin cells die and pile up. Left alone, your skin becomes dull, dry and acne and blemish may make their appearance. Cleaning the skin becomes essential, as essential as brushing the teeth. If cleaning your face is a daily routine that will help you maintain clean and healthy skin, should you be paying more attention to the kind of cleanser you’re using?
Although not all skin experts will agree on using only natural face cleansers, many will agree that the less chemicals you use on your face, the better.
Here are three good reasons to use natural face cleanser:
Free From Harsh Chemicals
Pick up a cleanser from a drug store or your local beauty store and look at the list of ingredients. Do they read like a list of chemicals you’ll find in a laboratory? Names you can’t pronounce, names you don’t recognize off the bat? If so, you may be buying a cleanser loaded with synthetic ingredients. These chemicals may be harsh for your face. Why subject your face to these chemicals? Choose a natural face cleanser with ingredients plucked from nature such as antioxidants, minerals, extracts from herbs and flowers. Consider One Love Organics Chia Whip Fragrance-Free Organic Foam Cleanser, which removes dirt, excess oil and makeup with organic chia oil, aloe vera and rosemary extract.
Hydrate Your Skin
Can your cleanser multi-task: hydrate while cleansing the skin? If your skin feels tight after washing, you may be using a cleanser that is too strong or harsh for you. Instead look for a cleanser with natural emollients – they put moisture back in the skin, ensuring that your skin is nourished and rejuvenated. If you’re looking for a gentle cleanser, consider Astara Botanical Cleansing Gele with the power to hydrate and moisturize while your skin is being cleaned.
To remove grime, bacteria and dead cells, look for a cleanser that can exfoliate without drying the skin. Cleanser with abrasive exfoliants can remove healthy oils found in the skin. Astara Daily Refining Scrub has all the goodness of natural ingredients such as organic aloe-based exfoliant, diatomaceous earth to gently buff away dull skin without drying it out.
