5 reasons your skin will thank you for using natural cosmetics09/10/2015
With all this talk of wholefood diets, Nutribullets and organic everything, we’ve all become a little curious as to what all the hype is about. And more importantly, is it justified? Over the past few years, so many products have become “must-haves”. But how do you separate the must-haves from the well-marketed?
Believe it or not, a lot of these must-haves and trends are actually positive. “Healthy” is the new “skinny”, “organic” is the new “flawless” and “authentic” is the new “shiny”. Local, fair-trade, eco-friendly, organic, whole, natural and detoxifying are all words we hope to continue to see hashtagged on Instagram as they are excellent concepts to be embraced into your lifestyle.
Why? Well, put simply in one word: health. The products we use have an effect not only on our skin, but on our piggy bank, on our economy, and on the environment, so here’s why everybody’s raving about natural cosmetics!
1. It’s not complete gibberish
At VOYA, we are committed to using quality, hand-harvested ingredients that are found right here, literally, on Irish shores. Pure, local ingredients in skincare products are as important as pure, local ingredients in food.
Would you eat some weird, potentially toxic chemical you didn’t even know how to pronounce? We sure hope not!
Don’t forget that what you put on your body is as important as what you put in it.
2. It’s much cheaper
We believe in buying it once and buying it right. While other skincare products may be cheaper, in the long-run you may end up using more and more of them to try to balance your skin. By using top-quality natural products on your skin, you are conserving its natural health and encouraging its immunity and elasticity.
Which means there’s no need to fill your bathroom with tons of “fancy” and expensive products competing to balance each other out. You may even find that you no longer need to use three different concealers to correct your skin every day. Healthy, glowing skin doesn’t need to be covered up.
3. It will help your skin feel good, not just look good
There’s no better feel-good factor than knowing your face feels beautiful and healthy. Our organic wash-off exfoliator, Love a Scrub is suitable for use on problem skin like acne, eczema and psoriasis. This can be used two or three times weekly to keep the face clear of any unwanted build-up.
If you like to exfoliate daily, you can use a gentle but effective Organic Muslin Facial Cloth along with the Cast Away face wash. Either of these methods will remove make-up, cleanse and clear away any excess oil or dead skin—and all while being gentle on the skin.
4. It will hydrate your skin naturally
Coming into the winter, your skin is likely to be exposed to all kinds of drying factors like central heating, chimney smoke and wind damage. Keeping the skin moisturised is important, but using an organic, detoxifying cream is essential to the skin’s health.
Your moisturiser will be on your face for at least eight hours, so you need to make sure that it’s not doing more harm than good. Our famous My Little Hero serum is perfect for use underneath our night cream, Dream Creme, or underneath our brand new Even Pure during the daytime. Don’t forget to keep your lips soft and nourished with Balmelicious lip balm.
5. It’s quite the treat!
Because organic, Irish skincare isn’t quite the norm (not yet, anyway!), people are dying to try it out for themselves and often see it as a bit of a treat. Why not put a smile, and some beautiful healthy skin, on a friend’s face and treat them to one of our gift sets?
This ultra-luxurious Treatment Gift Set makes for a great gift. For VOYA newbies, introduce them to our range with this1, 2, 3, Glow. Or, if you’re on a budget, get them this inexpensive Skincare Kit that has everything you need for healthy glowing skin on the go. Don’t forget that you don’t always have to give a gift to other people either. Treat yourself! You deserve it.
