Skin is your body’s largest organ and your protective barrier. However, that doesn’t mean it’s impervious or impenetrable. You need to be aware of what you’re exposing it to at all times. If you put dangerous ingredients on your skin, they get into your blood stream (exactly where you don’t want them). Consider all of the potential irritants that come in contact with your skin like chemical-laden personal hygiene products, fragrances, deodorant etc. However a solid skin care regimen is critical so for us at ORÍKÌ we believe that, abiding paying careful attention to the ingredients in your products will help your skin feel and look healthier than ever before.
Natural skin care uses topical creams and lotions made of ingredients available to nature. They may include fruits, vegetables, essential oils, flowers, herbs and roots. The use of natural products has evolved from simple remedies to skin treatments specifically targeted to a gamut of skin concerns such as sensitive skin, anti-aging and acne solutions.
WHAT MAKES NATURAL SKIN CARE DIFFERENT?
- Natural skincare products are suppose to be free of toxins that can be of harm to your health although research is always on-going considering that just because an ingredient is natural doesn’t automatically make it good.
- They can often be more effective than chemically filled brands because there is no separating, converting, or filtering the body has to do to break them down.
- Your skin is free from potential side effects and skin irritations due to chemicals
- It promotes healthy skin.
- Due to the nutrients and vitamins that penetrate into your skin from the natural skin care, your body becomes more resistant to diseases.
