Organic products keep skin healthy
Women have been advised to include organic beauty products into their beauty regimes in order to keep their skin looking and feeling healthy.
According to skin therapist Louise Thomas-Minns, incorporating antioxidants into a skincare routine is an excellent way to protect skin from harmful ultraviolet lights, which can result in a host of serious skin complaints.
Continuing to use natural products can also help women reverse some of the damage that has been done to their skin by the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays if used in high enough doses.
As well as using organic beauty products on the skin, women can also incorporate organic foods including fresh fruit and vegetables into their diets.
Ms Thomas-Minns warned women to be wary of the vast range of cosmetic products on the market, which may not necessarily be appropriate for their skin types or useful for particular skin complaints.
Consumers were advised to seek out professional help from specialists who will be able to guide women to the appropriate natural products they require.
"It is a minefield out there of cosmetic companies all wanting to lure you into their range," Ms Thomas-Minns commented.
"Any professional skin therapist worth their weight will guide you through your skin type, condition and give you instruction on what you need to use."
Consumers were also encouraged not to stick with the same products they used during their teenage years because their skin tends to evolve as they get older and they may develop complaints that they never had in their youth.
"Many people are still treating their ’oily/problem’ prone skin even though they don’t have those issues anymore for example," Ms Thomas-Minns explained.
According to make-up artist and skincare specialist Sophie Chamings, natural skincare products can be much healthier for the skin than so-called miracle creams advertised on television.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
