Reasons To Switch To Natural Skincare – With The Victorian Garden

For a few years now i have come across so many articles about why you should start using ‘natural skincare’ products. I didn’t quite understand why, because the products i have been using all my life have been absolutely fine on my skin. What i did not realise, was the amount of chemicals we are not only putting on our skin, but inside our body’s!

So i decided that for this month of October, i will be focusing on taking all products out of my hoousehold that don’t include natural ingredients. I started with my skincare products…

Did You Know: The average person slathers on around 10 different products to the skin, which means that your body is absorbing around 130 chemicals that are detrimental to your health

Reason 1 

If you have sensitive skin or easily aggitated skin then you should definetly go for natural products, the ingredients that are in them will actually heal the skin rather than irritate it more

Reason 2

Natural ingredients tend to be a lot more affordable (not only money wise but for your body too)

Reason 3

Farmers that make the products / plants / oils that are used in the skincare range do not use harmful chemicals and pestisides so it doesn’t harm the environment around us

Reason 4

There is actually NO reason why you should put your body through dealing with the harmful chemicals.
