Skin Care To Some Is Just A Quick Wash

by Ann Marier

Most people into beauty skin care are fairly health-conscious people. They use skin care products because they want their bodies to look good. People who want their bodies to look good also go to the gym, eat healthy, and try to live a healthy lifestyle in general. A lot of them are a bit overdriven in their career lives, it is true, but besides that they do what they can.

Nonetheless, many of these skin care products are actually toxic. People don't really realize what they are putting on their skin, but the cosmetic skin products that seem to make your skin look younger are actually aging you. Many of them contain harmful oils that can clog up your pores.
Other ones contain fragrances that you could be allergic to. Even if you use organic skin care, you are not necessarily safe. Unless you are very conscious about what you are putting on your body, you may be doing more harm than good.

I am a professional aesthetician, but I also have a considerable background in natural medicine and alternative treatments. Take it for me - it pays to be careful about skin care. As a matter of fact, if you are worried about keeping your skin young, you don't need to worry about oils, lotions, and potions. You will do much better using very simple products and spending a lot of time in the sauna.

Spending a lot of time at the health spa is one of the best ways to keep yourself looking young. It is not so much the state of your skin that makes you look old, but the state of your internal health. If you are stressed out, not eating right, and not learning to relax, your organic skin care products will do nothing for you. You can rub any lotions on your skin, but it will not look younger and healthier. It will continue to age.

If, however, you learn to relax, skincare will be an easy task. You will see wrinkles literally disappear once you stop carrying chronic stress in your body. Even better, you will care less about the fact that you are aging. You will be happy with who you are, so skin care will take a lower priority. After all, beauty is only important insofar as it causes happiness. This means that your happiness is the true goals. Forget skincare for a while, and concentrate on health.
