Ever since I was a young child I’ve loved being in the sun. I loved the outdoors so much that often I would go out skiing, windsurfing and handgliding. Over the years, these activities took their toll on my skin. My face, neck and hands especially became extremely dehydrated from the sun and the wind and looked aged and wrinkled. I wish now that I had taken care of my skin the way I should have, but instead I bought the latest, most popular store brands at the drugstore that never gave me the protection and beauty that they claimed. I had distinct crow’s-feet and other creases and lines around my nose and my lips which these companies had promised to erase.
Around about that time, I asked a good friend of mine with absolutely gorgeous skin for advice. She recommended giving me a facial massage using a botanically based natural skin care cream. After the facial my skin glowed and felt totally rejuvenated. I was amazed at the difference in my skin’s appearance. I started using natural moisturizing and conditioning products faithfully and for the first time I was amazed at the difference in my skin. I started a regular skin care routine using only natural beauty products.
Now, after I garden or go camping or to any areas that are extra dirty, I use a deep pore cleanser and a natural fruit based exfoliant to remove dead skin and detoxify any oily pores. Then I moisturize with a natural plant collagen anti-aging cream.
Today people are suffering with all kinds of skin problems, from unexplainable skin rashes to adult acne, skin cancer and eczema. People don’t want to buy products containing perfumes, animal by-products and chemical ingredients. Certain cosmetic preservatives, fragrances, mineral oil and lanolin can cause itchy rashes, skin damage and asthma-like conditions. People of all skin types need to cleanse, use sun-protection and moisturize their skin regularly. Even people with healthy skin need to be aware of the importance of a regular skin care regimen using natural, normalizing products.
The trend today is towards natural skin care. People know that adding chemicals to their skin is drying it out, throwing off its PH balance and causing secondary infections and unusual rashes to occur. With my natural skin care routine my crow’s feet, laugh and lip lines are completely gone. Even though I’m still as active as ever, I feel like a natural beauty. The natural conditioning oils have healed my skin from inside and keep my skin as soft as a baby’s bottom. My confidence is back around others – I’m still amazed!
