Thousands of beauty products exist on the market, all promising to deliver our dreams of having a fabulous appearance. Unfortunately, many use manmade chemicals and synthetic fragrances to make their product seem the most appealing. In reality, some of these chemicals are too harsh for our skin, and can either trigger new irritations and allergies, or cause existing ones to flare up. However, the 17 million of us who have an allergy have found relief in the overwhelming recent popularity of organic skincare. Here are some top tips for getting the most out of your organic skincare this summer.
Get Glowing Skin
Begin your day by refreshing and revitalising your face with a gentle organic cleanser. Using an organic cleanser dispels harsh chemicals roughing up your skin and instead only naturally occurring ingredients cleanse your pores, helping your skin to glow.
Next, apply an organic moisturiser to your face and body. Whenever we shower or bathe, we drain the skin of moisture. It’s important to keep the skin hydrated all year round: a good moisturiser can help replace what the body has lost.
Keep Hair Healthy
For our hair, an organic shampoo and conditioner is the best way to treat your hair like royalty. Free from sulphates, organic shampoos and conditioners contain the natural ingredients to make your hair shiny, stronger and don’t damage the hair cuticle.
Using a high quality sunscreen is essential to keep your skin and your body healthy this summer. Organic sun creams are specially designed to protect your skin and prevent irritation problems such as prickly heat. Some fragrance free and organic sun creams are water resistant, and will enhance your tan, allowing your skin to glow from head to toe this summer.
For those wanting a sun kissed look without having to actually sit in the sun, you can also purchase organic self tan. Fragrance free tanning products are ideal for a non-streaky, natural look and suit all skin types, including those which are prone to eczema and psoriasis.
Essential for every season is deodorant: protecting your body from the effects of perspiration and ensuring your underarms are cared for with a product which is not full of irritating chemical compounds.
Complete the Look
Organic skincare products are complimented by a variety of natural beauty products, perfect for finishing off the glowing summer look. A range of companies are offering high quality, high performance cosmetics which meet the demand for effective beauty free from chemicals.
