We all know, or have heard the phase ”you are what you eat”, but have you ever given consideration to the cosmetics you use day in, day out?
This week saw the celebrate day “World Asthma Day” recognising the chronic, sometimes fatal illness* that many people around the world suffer from. The topic got me thinking more about the importance of natural and organic especially skincare.
Your skin is the outer covering of your body and the largest organ of the body. If you like it’s your coat. Every area is covered in minute flake like particles called squamous cells. Sweat and sebum (an oily substance that helps keep the skin from drying out), reach the skin’s surface through tiny openings called pores, allowing our bodies to carry out its daily functionality with ease.
In reverse creams and oils penetrate through the skin surface and can either be disruptive or collaborate with the normality of the skin. Therefore, would it not make sense to consider exactly what you are putting on your skin, is it doing harm or good in the name of beauty?
We all realise that for the majority of us, the food we eat and our surroundings play a bit part in the ailments we develop either from childhood or during our adult life. For people with Asthma one of their *symptoms is shortness of breath, as pollutants such as unclean air, skin rashes can kick off an attack.
**Various medical studies undertaken worldwide show the possibility that skin rashes especially in young children can develop asthma. Fragrances and all manner of raw ingredients used to create skincare products need to be as pure as possible. Customers with dry or sensitive skin are much more susceptible, than another group of clientele, to various synthetic and artificial substances.
Skincare created for this customer in mind, must be meticulous, just as how that client will be when looking at purchasing from a brand. It is the Customer, at the end of the day that brands should be giving a service to, and not themself.
