The 411 On Organic Skincare and Makeup

The 411 On Organic Skincare and Makeup

The following post has been provided by Shelby Gerson, one of our customer service Estheticians. Check out our blog categories for more insight from our experts and editors at Skinstore: your digital dermatologist. 

“She’s a hippie, a tree hugger…” the list goes on and on to the rise of a demand for organic skincare and the demographic of its consumers. However, organic skincare isn’t something to turn your nose up to. There is something to be said about creating a regimen that removes fake ingredients and potentially cancer-causing toxins.

Organic skincare calls for ingredients free from pesticides and harsh chemicals. These ancient beauty secrets have been used for centuries and have stood the test of time.

The trend of coming back to mother earth for healthy answers and naturally beautiful skin is what organic skincare and makeup is all about. Choosing to go organic for skincare and makeup isn’t a trend. The wrong skincare, especially non-organic, can cause hormonal interruptions, allergies, and reproductive scares. People are awakening to a new dawn of redefining the beauty industry to be toxin, paraben, and sulfate free, while helping our planet.

One of the brands leading organic skincare, Juice Beauty, uses all natural juices as the first ingredient in all their products – all from the same farm. I love the beautifying and anti aging vitamin C, CoQ10, and DMAE.

These are all in the Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum, which should be used sparingly each morning.

Serums and oils for the skin have come full circle from the ancient days of beautifying, pleasure, and spirituality, to bringing hydration and the buoyancy of the appearance of that type 3 collagen found in botanical resources. The blend of fatty and dry organic oils keeps the skin on your face looking plump and hydrated without appearing greasy. Pai Age Confidence: Echium and Amaranth Facial Oil is a wonderful treatment to use each day. I would use this in a nighttime regimen after applying The Organic Pharmacy Retinol Night Serum.

Retinol tricks your skin cells into acting like younger cells – producing mass amounts of collagen and elastin. Use this one each night or alternate with a good alpha hydroxy acid to clean up surface pigmentation and refine skin. A wonderful organic alpha hydroxy option is Tracie Martyn Enzyme Exfoliant, noted as “a facial in a pot”.

We can thank the Greeks for masterminding the transition from the utilization of just oils to creams with organic ingredients including olive oil, beeswax, and rosewater. Eminence, known for its organic skincare and makeup, presents a protective Rosehip and Lemongrass Repair Balm to those with thirsty skin and of a blend of organic ingredients in their Eminence Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm

With the transition from Winter to Spring, sensitive and rosacea-prone skin types reach for treatments to draw out impurities and provide calming hydration. The ilike organic skin care Ichthammol & Herbs Mask is the perfect answer. Ilike products are healthy with yummy smells from the North Hungarian Mountains. The colorful fruits and plants used in Ilike masks, serums, and moisturizers are all so inviting, you’ll want to try all of them. 

I can’t live without my ilike organic skin care Wrinkle Smoothing Serum. This gel serum disappears into the skin to stimulate tired cells while tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Just like Juice Beauty, another favorite skincare creator, producing organic concoctions from the home farm, is Jurlique. These organic blends from South Australia attend to all our skincare needs. Each plant is harvested by hand and the extracts are chosen at their peak of readiness to deliver powerful hydration and anti-aging ingredients. One of the most popular is the Jurlique Intense Recovery Mask. Take a luxurious 10 minutes and relax while letting farm grown botanical extracts hydrate and revitalize the skin.

While you’re relaxing, indulge your torso and limbs in the Jurlique Rose Body Oil. Just pour two or three drops into the hands and breathe in the wonderful scent. Apply to your damp skin after a bath or press gently around the nose and wrists for a daytime fragrance. I brush this with my fingers on the ends of my hair too to seal in those loose ends.

So, who is the Organic Woman? The rules she follows are simple:  no pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or growth hormones. See all the organic beauty brands we carry on site at SkinStore.com.
