Eating organic produce has long been touted as a must-do for our health thanks to its many benefits, and it’s certainly something we should consider for our beauty regime too.
Thankfully, there’s a bunch of beauty bloggers that road test the best organic beauty products so we know what the best of the best.
Organic beauty products are nourishing, gentle and kind on the skin, and just like we nourish our bodies with organic foods, we should embrace the beauty products too.
The reality of it is, plenty of the non-organic products on the market are produced with chemicals that aren't exactly beneficial to our bodies. And just because you're applying them topically, doesn't mean they can't have an effect on your health. The skin absorbs typically 60% of what we put on to it, so you've got to be aware of what's in the products you're using.
Certified-organic beauty products work just as good as other products, but without using additives or artificial chemicals that could potentially be harmful.
If you’re considering going organic with your beauty regime we suggest you take some time to read these beauty blogs, these are our pick of the best organic beauty bloggers and will most definitely help you change your routine for the better.
