MAKING THE SWITCH…..We are here to help you every step of the way.
Over years we have all become increasingly aware of the harmful chemicals found in skincare and cosmetics, chemicals such as Parabens, Formaldehyde, SLS and Coal Tar (just to name a few) scientific studies and reports show that these toxic chemicals can and do enter our bodies. Absorption of such chemicals depend on a number of factors so we can never be sure the exact amount of toxins entering, but for me, even a little is a little too much.
If you are looking to make the swap to natural and organic beauty products, I can assure you, you won’t look back, making the swap does not have to be complicated, it can be simple and streamlined to fit into within your lifestyle, and remember we are here to help you every step of the way. It is important to say that you don’t need to go into a frenzy and throw all your current beauty products out at once, just small steps, a few products at a time, this will ensure that you are comfortable with the change you are making and that the products you choose will fit into your lifestyle, it is important to implement a skincare routine and products that are cohesive to the lives we live.
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to making the swap from chemical skincare to natural and organic, my suggestion, just a little at a time, below are some helpful tips…….
Swap one item or routine at a time. There is no need to overhaul your whole beauty cabinet in one go, it’s just not realistic, try for one item or routine at a time, this week it may be your cleanser or cleansing routine next week it may be your moisturising.
Swap the items that stay in contact with your skin for the longest periods of time. For example: Makeup, Moisturiser, Deodorant.
Allow time for your new products to work, your skin will be going through a period of detox and adjustment, so now is the time for patience. However do not confuse detox with reaction, if a reaction occurs discontinue use immediately. We ALWAYS recommend that you patch test all new products first prior to use.
Keep in mind skincare ranges are designed to work synergistically, stick to one range at a time for the most effective results.
Consistency is key: To obtain maximum results and benefits you really do need to be using products consistently, a little here or there just won’t do it.
Most importantly ENJOY, enjoy your journey, enjoy the discovery, enjoy knowing that your new products are clean and green, enjoy the beautiful textures and divine scents and enjoy knowing that you have taken a step in the right direction.
