Since time immemorial mankind has the craving, or I may say desire, to look younger and more beautiful. And it’s since that time there are products available to do so. We call that age old wisdom. Why is it then in today’s world we choose not to go by tried and tested way to cure and rejuvenate our skin but take short cuts and use products that actually harm our skin?
In this article I will share with you some practical and useful points that you can use to choose the best botanical skin care product for your skin.
As an aware consumer you might already know that the best way to choose a good skin care product is to look at its ingredients list but what next? Most of the companies follow the least common factor mechanism to be righteous on the claim they make. i.e. If I say that xyz cream is a botanical product; I need to stand true to this claim and for that purpose what I will do is; include a botanical oil in the list of ingredients. So, my claim is true but the cream is not much effective because there is only one ingredient that is botanical; not others.
This is the trick that many cosmetic companies use while they qualify their product to be a botanical skin care product.
Nature has provided us with so many wonderful herbs and medicines that we can use for the benefit of our skin and body. We must educate ourselves and start utilizing that knowledge.
Now that you know how to stay away from false claims the second step is to discover and analyze the active ingredients used in the right product.
In today’s world information is at everybody’s fingertips; go on do some research on the internet.
Ask few basic questions to yourself before making a choice.
A good quality skin care product will have as high as 40% of active ingredients. And a good company will actually back the claims of ingredients and their quantity by sharing the research results on their website.
Now it’s time to start putting these pieces of information together and choose the botanical skin care product that can help you achieve the radiant and healthy skin you have always been yearning for.
