What are organic fresh face masks?
Organic fresh face masks are masks made with organic ingredients that you have right in your kitchen. These masks are great because they only contain natural and wholesome ingredients that you can also eat. For example, a guacamole face mask! Simply mash up half an avocado with 2 tablespoons of honey, apply to your face for 20 minutes and boom – your skin feels instantly refreshed, especially if your skin is on the drier side.
Why is it important to use organic ingredients?
It’s simple. Chemicals that we cannot pronounce (or have never heard of) are not healthy for us, so why should we settle for skincare that could harm us? Although finding the best organic skincare is easier said than done, it doesn’t have to be difficult. With enough information and research, we can truly understand the importance of using organic ingredients, both inside and out!
In order to protect our skin, our largest organ, we must treat it properly. By not using organic skincare products or natural makeup, we are opening up the opportunity for our body to soak in harmful chemicals like phthalates or parabens. Phthalates or parabens can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system. What we put (in and) on our bodies matter because our choices can affect us long term.
The word toxins makes us all shrivel, doesn’t it? (Or is that just me?) So why are we allowing ourselves to use products that contain these so-called toxins? (Eek!) Just as we like to “eat clean”, we should also do the same for our skin. To me, it’s clear that using fresh ingredients in our skincare is beneficial, but here are some examples of the amazing benefits:fresh ingredients:
- can help with hyper-pigmentation and inflammation – including acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
- can decrease aging lines and wrinkles.
- contain no artificial preservatives – preservatives pose health risks, like cancer.
- are environmentally friendly – because they do not introduce more harmful chemicals into our waterways.
- do not contain fragrances – “fragrances” can irritate your skin or contain hidden toxins.
The benefits of using fresh ingredients in your skincare (as well as in your meals) are countless, but ultimately, fresh food ingredients equal a healthier lifestyle.
It’s easy to recognize that we must choose organic, natural, and fresh over GMO and artificial – but most of us don’t have the time to make organic face masks from scratch – which is where Smoothie Beauty comes into play. Smoothie Beauty gives people the opportunity to maintain a healthy and organic lifestyle, without sacrificing their time.
I hope this post helped you to understand the importance of organic ingredients and inspired you to use organic fresh face masks. Have a wonderful weekend beauties!
