Exfoliators, cleansers and toners are an essential part of your daily skin care routine. Natural based exfoliators, cleansers and toners are made out of plant extracts and natural ingredients. 60% of what we put on our skin goes in our skin. When then put into the factor hot water to open up our pores, and suddenly artificial chemical laden exfoliators, cleansers and toners do not seem like such a good idea.
Our natural exfoliators are free from plastic beads. These plastic beads are often used in standard exfoliators and are playing havoc with the environment. The plastic releases a chemical called BPA. BPA acts like an oestrogen in the body. The problem is that these beads ae being washed down our drains and are ending up in our rivers and seas where they are having an oestrogenic effect on fish, making them infertile. This not only affects the fish, but the whole ecosystem and the animals and humans who eat them. Our natural exfoliators use natural exfoliating agents.
Cleansers are again another important must have in your wash kit. Normal soaps can leave your skin dry, which is why we always suggest using a facial cleanser. Choose a natural one to decrease your exposure to manmade chemicals and care for the environment.
Toners are a must have for youthful looking skin. After the routine of exfoliation and cleansing, our pore may be slightly open. This is where the toner is valuable. Closing the pores is important the help protect your skin from the outside world and to help protect against any external agents causing spots.
