Be a Savvy Shopper: How to Buy Natural Remedies

If you are shopping for complementary remedies, how do you know which ones will be the most beneficial for your wellness and wellbeing? There is such a plethora of products out there, especially when it comes to skin care and beauty products, that it can be really difficult to know which are the best ones to choose.

There are a few factors, however, which can help you to narrow it down to a few products which are best for your skin.

First of all, find out what kind of skin type you have. No matter how brilliant a product is, if it’s not right for your skin it’s not going to have the right effect. When you have ascertained what kind of skin type you have, choose a product that complements this.

Don’t necessarily trust the label, though; just because the product has the word ‘natural’ written on it does not mean that it is necessarily all natural. Natural is a word that can be used to refer to ingredients that are inspired by nature, such as scent. Similarly, a beauty product can be labelled as green or eco-friendly when in fact this purely refers to the packaging of the product rather than the ingredients.

Make sure that your product is chemical-free, too. If the ingredients are not natural, then they were not designed to be introduced into your body, and you should avoid them. Look out in particular for sodium lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol and dibutyl phthalate, as these are all commonly used ingredients in beauty and skin products which are no good for the skin.

Finally, make sure that the products are cruelty free – the label should tell you that the product has not been tested on animals in any way.
