Organic skincare products may just seem like a new fad designed to squeeze a few extra bucks out of you, but in fact those two or three ingredients (ie: harmful chemicals) missing from the product will make all the difference. In the US, the FDA regulates most of the harmful chemicals from our foods and drugs. However, they are much more lenient with make-up and skincare products, allowing harmful chemicals including mercury, dioxane, nitrosamines, alcohol isopropyl (SD-40) and polyethylene glycol into your beloved skincare serums. By now, you’re probably either throwing all of your non-organic make-up away or rolling your eyes and saying, “Get to the point already!”
If you’re worried about ludicrous prices, some of my favorite products are actually affordable! The best anti aging serum I’ve used so far is Herbalistic’s Vitamin C Serum 20% with Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid — also with additional jojoba oil and aloe vera. And if you’re worried about the sound of hyaluronic acid, let me just assure you that hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body and it proven to actually prevent the effects of aging (some even call it the “fountain of youth”)! This product is completely organic (with NO alcohol, parabens or sulfates) and such a steal at only $35. Plus, they offer a full money-back guarantee if you don’t find the product satisfactory. If that isn’t a risk-free deal I don’t know what is.
So if you haven’t already done it. ditch the non-organic anti-aging serums and opt for a completely stable, active and bio-organic skincare regime. Your face will be smooth, supple, and glowing, and you might even feel better without all of those weird toxins sinking into your pores all the time. Your skin will thank you for it. Seriously.
