The term organic has become a buzzword over the last few years. But when you read the ingredients of skin care products, how can you tell if they are really organic? Being certain is especially important for people with skin sensitivities, which is much more common than you might think. Sarah Brown says that you don’t have to be an ingredient expert to spot truly organic or natural products. She encourages looking for kitemarks that will certify organic products. Listen to hear more tips for picking out the best products for your skin during this episode.
One helpful tip discussed in this episode is how to keep a skin care diary. Sarah says she arrived at the proper skin care regimen by keeping a diary. Document your sleeping habits, immune system, what you’ve been eating and what products you are using. You’ll start to see how your skin reacts when using different products or during stressful times. You will also identify how different foods affect your skin. Ultimately a skin care diary helps you buy products from a more informed positioned.
If you are looking to just take one step toward better skin care, Sarah Brown has some great advice for you during this episode. She says that it is important to first consider the foundation of good skin care. Many times, the first recommendation is to moisturize. However, Sarah argues that approach isn’t always the best. You also don’t have to spend tons of money to improve your skin health. Listen to this interview to hear the most important first step of skin care.
