Next time your shopping for farmed raised salmon or locally grown produce at Whole Foods, take a trip down the skin care aisle for natural skin care products too! Just as you eat foods that are healthy and beneficial to your body, don't forget about great products for your skin. Try skin care products made with natural ingredients opposed to cosmetics that are chemical-based.
Many skin, body care creams and moisturizers contain petrochemical, products made from petroleum and other raw materials, with particles too large to penetrate the skin. These products may attract dirt to the skin, clog pores, irritate the skin or trigger an allergic reaction. To preserve the health and wellness of your skin, take caution when using such products. A good way to be on the look out for what's best is to develop a habit of reading labels. Avoid ingredients such as propylene glycol, ethoxylates, dioxane, sodium laureth sulfates, nitrosamines and artificial fragrances.
