Why Use Natural Skincare Products

Over 50% of what we apply to our skin can be absorbed into the body, just as 90% of what we eat does. Now, you would not eat aluminium, nasty chemicals, toxins, chunks of animal fat or drink petroleum, would you?

Most skincare products contain parabens, artificial fragrances, synthetic dyes, mineral oils and other petroleum and animal based ingredients.

Using natural, botanical skincare products  – which have a virtually perfect synergy with the skin – limits the amount of toxic chemicals your skin and organism will absorb. Furthermore, natural skincare stimulates the skin own’s re-generative process. It can’t get better than this.

Although most of the awful ingredients have been thoroughly tested, most tests took place in-vitro with virtually no research on the long term effect on the human organism. What is known though, is that after an immediate apparent and temporary beneficial effect, these toxins are likely to disrupt the natural process and structure of the skin and may interfere with skin cell activity to the extent of causing premature aging of skin cells.

Another likely outcome is that these toxins may end up stored in the human fat as the human organism is not designed to process them. They can interfere with cellular activity and even cause cellular mutation, which is not something to look forward to.

Nothing we formulate and sell at Florals London contains SLS, parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, nor other artificial, petroleum or animal based nasties.

Petroleum and most things synthetic are not for human consumption. We have evolved to digest animal products to some extent.

Vegetable ingredients can be completely metabolised by the human organism.

You can be certain that our botanical skincare ranges are safe for your skin and body.  Most importantly, the Florals’ skincare we supply is at least as effective and often better than anything you can buy out there, rare and big brands included.

    Beauty Essentials: Find Your Routine

    Right after learning our type of skin, we should make sure to find our own routine.
    Most of us will have the same requirements, but since not all skin types are the same, a tiny variation in the routine can make a visible difference.

    The general basic routine includes:

    1. Cleansing
    2. Toner
    3. Serum or specific area treatment
    4. Moisturizer

    The above works well with most of us for both morning and evening, but it is not all here.
    In the morning you need to apply some kind of low and natural UVA/UVB protection before or with your make-up.

    Low protection because we want all the vitamin D we can get (mostly and better from the sun), while a high SPF (over 15) will prevent the skin from absorbing it.

    Natural because unlike its synthetic counterparts, it is safe. There are several natural ingredients offering repair and protection against UVA/UVB damage and up to 15SPF.

    Also a sensible exposure to sunlight is vital to a good general and skin health.

    5. Exfoliating. Each one of us should exfoliate at her own frequency. The frequency of our exfoliations must relate to the speed our own skin re-generates itself.
    Removing the outer layer of the skin, made up of dead skin cells, is a ‘must do’ in any beauty treatment, but do it too often and you will end up revealing immature skin with the risk of causing scars and lesions. Do it too infrequently and most of our expensive anti-age cosmetics will end up sitting on the dead cells in the outer layer of the skin.

    A good way to start is Cleansing the skin morning and night with very simple, natural and unsophisticated soap such as the old fashion natural and vegetable Marseille Soap. It works very well for all skin types, including children’s and sensitive. Otherwise any SLS-free and other-nasties-free vegetable soap will do.

    We should start exfoliating gently once a week and observe how our skin reacts. If the exfoliation leaves the skin a bit too red and tender, then we should do it more infrequently – let’s say every fortnight or longer.

    Exfoliating more often than necessary will only put an unwelcome stress on the cells producing new skin, apart from potentially being painful, and will not bring any extra benefit.
    Find the right sync and the process will reveal beautiful new skin cells every time.

    Exfoliation and Cleansing should be followed always with an organic toner before applying anything else, as this is gentle and complex enough to feed the skin what it needs at that moment.

    The application of a toner is meant to bring back tone and vitality to the skin stripped of protection by the cleansing and exfoliating process. Nothing does it better than our Organic Toners, wonderfully soothing pure hydrosols with organic glycerine and vegetable elastin Collagen peptide.

    Then is time to apply any specific product, like an eye serum or anti age-spot product and either let them rest for a few minutes before applying anything else or go straight to the serum and/or moisturiser, as it works best for you.

    Always apply the serum/s before the toner dries out, on a wet skin. If it dries out, spray the skin with a bit more organic toner. In our tests we have found that our organic toners greatly facilitate both penetration and absorption of a serum thus boosting its action. On top of that, it saves the skin a bit of unnecessary stress from stretching its otherwise dry surface.

    Let’s never forget that 50% of what goes on the skin is absorbed by the organism, seriously! as is 90% of what we put in our mouth. Applying cosmetics is just a different way of feeding ourselves, a topical way of doing it, so let’s choose carefully what we feed ourselves!
