From my last trip to Stockholm I’ve brought (besides my fascination by the Fjällraven Polar) the obsession for the organic products. I have the sensation that there, everything were oriented to wellness. For example, we were hosted at the Hotel Scandic Upplandsgatan and the breakfast was made exclusively with bio products. I still remember these delicious smoothies.
Also in the hotel I found a mini shopping guide, most of the contents are advertising, but one of the articles kept my attention: Rescue Remedies. It was about Sweden’s brands that have the essential products to protect the skin during the winter weather. While I was reading, I only could think about the marvelous skin that have Sweden people. This revelation was like the Holy Grial for my always ultra sensitive skin.
When I returned to Spain, I researched a little bit to have more information and don’t fall in a non-sense trend. So why we should choose organic skin care?
First of all, lets be realistic, there is no product that made you look 10 years younger. I don’t believe in miracles and only look for a healthy, moisturized and good looking skin.
Once assumed this, I realized that the regular creams can do their work, but are made with chemicals and synthetic ingredients and full with artificial perfumes. As same as happens with food, whatever you put in your skin has consequences in long term. That’s why I started to ask myself what effect would have on my skin all these chemicals.
The natural skin care is made by plant based ingredients, oils and butters. If the product is organic, means that the plants used have grew without pesticides.
After all these informations, I decided to give a chance to the organic skin care and see the results by myself. In that shopping guide I found Estelle & thild. This brand sells (for a really good price) certified organic products that have a 99,8% of natural ingredients. I bought the Biohydrate Total Moisture Day Lotion and All in one tinted moisturizer just for trying and I’m totally in love. My skin looks healthy and barely has red marks. The only con is that it doesn’t have SPF protection.
Have you ever used organic skincare? Any other suggestion to try?.
