Natural or Chemically Enhanced Skin Care

Updated: Aug 15

If you're looking for answers about whether to use natural skin care products or chemically-enhanced products, start with deciding which is the safest and the most effective means to maintain the good health of your skin.

For ages, nature has provided the medical industry with ingredients that have powerful antibiotic, antiseptic, or anti-inflammatory properties which are processed into medicines, serums, ointments, or lotions.

Natural dermatological products are quickly absorbed by the superficial layers of the skin and with a hypo-allergenic character; they are proved to be very well tolerated by the skin. This is due to the fact that natural products contain no additives or preservatives and therefore they are very safe and reliable. In addition, natural skin care products that are properly formulated to match a specific skin care need often cost no more than their synthetic opponents.

It is known for a fact that chemically enhanced products may harm your body by releasing malign substances into the bloodstream. In order to minimize these risks, you should consider using natural skin care products instead. They stand as a very effective and healthy alternative to all synthetic products.

However, the main disadvantage of all natural skin care products is that they tend to lose their properties with two to three months. Unlike products that are chemically processed and contain synthetic preservatives, natural products alter more quickly and efficacy can diminish.

Despite their successful use among the medical branches, natural skin care products are also very efficient for cosmetic purposes. As a matter of fact, the cosmetic industry offers nowadays a wide range of natural products that improve the aesthetics of skin. Anti aging skin care products are the most popular at the time being. Whether they are intended for preventing or reversing the natural aging process of the skin, such products are highly requested and are “a must have” particularly among women in their mid-thirties. Anti aging skin care products, as well as other cosmetics, satisfy the growing aesthetic needs of modern society.

Regardless of their purposes, natural skin care products are the best alternative for synthetic ones, and when properly used, their beneficial actions are quickly noticeable.

A good basic skin care routine consists of a gentle cleansing oil, gentle soap, pH balancing toner, and moisturizers that hydrate the skin.
