Are organic facials really better than standard facials?
As much as possible, I’m trying to take a non-toxic approach to my health, wellness, and beauty routine. Over the last 5 years or so, I’ve been incorporating more organic food products into my life, checking labels and being mindful of ingredients lists. I want to eat food grown without chemicals or pesticides and with short ingredient lists.
But what about beauty products? I recently did a deep dive into all the products I’m using. Simply put, I want to use clean, non-toxic products. I have sensitive skin and as I age I’m finding myself even more sensitive to products and procedures.
Our faces are one of the most sensitive parts of our bodies. We all know that sun, sleep, aging and stress can all contribute to our skin looking dull. If you’re like me, you even notice the difference in your skin depending on what you eat (or am I the only one who suffers from that puffy, “I ate too much salt” look?!)
Knowing that facials are recommended as a way to keep skin clean, supple and glowing, I’ve had several. Unfortunately, I didn’t get that beautiful glow I was looking for. I reacted to the products and the manipulation. My vision of glowing, healthy skin was replaced with the reality of blotchy, itchy skin. So when I saw that organic facials were an option, I was intrigued.
But I wondered.. are organic facials really better? So I set out to find out…
What’s the difference between organic and regular facials?
It may seem obvious, but the main difference between an organic facial and a regular facial is the ingredients used. The techniques are essentially the same, but organic facials use organic skincare products.
Natural and organic skincare provides your skin with the purest form of the ingredient on the market.
But what are organic skincare products?
Organic skin care products begin with organic ingredients grown and produced using sustainable practices. The organic ingredients are free from contamination because these products are grown without chemicals or pesticides.
What Are the Benefits of Organic Facials?
There are definite benefits to organic facials and they can make a real difference in how our skin looks.
- Although organic facials are beneficial for all skin types, because they are gentler on your skin than a regular facials, they are perfect for people with sensitive skin.
- Organic facials are chemical free. You can relax: you’re not being exposed to harmful ingredients or harsh chemicals.
- Many of the herbs, oils, and fruits used to make organic facials offer antioxidants. Skin is left looking and feeling better after an organic facial with antioxidants.
I’m a true convert. Organic facials can make a real difference to the radiance of your skin. You will be left feeling hydrated, relaxed and more youthful. And there are many treatment options – for battling anti-aging, fine lines and wrinkles, acne prone skin, firming, regenerating. You get the results you want, knowing that the ingredients are pure. A win-win!
