There’s no doubt a natural approach makes sense when it comes to choosing your food. The same can be said for other products you put on your body. Especially, skin care. Think about all of the products you may use on a daily basis that may come in contact with your skin. Clothes, moisturizers, cleansers, fragrances, city treated water during showering, deodorant, the list goes on. Remember, it’s not only what you eat that matters, but also what you put on your skin which is equally important. Below are reasons which prove why natural skin care can be the best choice you can make for your health.
Protecting your Skin
As the largest organ of the body, your skin not only absorbs lots of nutrients, but it can also take in a number of toxins each day. Since your skin acts as your body’s barrier against those toxins, it’s so important to be aware of just what you’re using! If you’re putting dangerous ingredients on your skin, you can bet those are getting into your body—exactly where they don’t belong. For example, many traditional skin care products can contain harmful chemicals can cause damage to reproductive issues, they’re also linked to increased cancer risk, and studies also suggest the more products you use, the higher toxic concentrations can get in your body. Hence its best to go natural!
Benefits of Natural Ingredients
Did you know an average human uses up to 10 skin care products each day; that could be 10 products full of toxic chemicals! Going natural with your skin care routine will help your skin and body steer clear of those toxins—and there are other perks! A recent study suggests using natural ingredients for skin care can help treat hyperpigmentation and inflammation, while another comments on how it can help with repair damage caused by the sun’s rays over our lifetimes
What’s Behind Skin Care Products
The process of developing and putting a skin care product on the market can be shrouded in mystery, and sometimes regulations fall short. Believe it or not, the FDA doesn’t need to approve what ingredients are added to personal care products or cosmetics and can only request, not order, that a company pull a skin care product, regardless of what’s in it. So why would you want to risk taking in those chemicals, instead embrace natural cosmetics which aren’t harmful to you!
We at Ravi aroma believe a great company should stand behind a natural product, and believe in what it can do—that products can help you maintain a clean body and live a healthy lifestyle. Isn’t it time to try something better for your skin and your health?

With toxins and chemicals all around us, shouldn’t it be time, we embrace a natural approach to what we use to enhance our beauty? Below are few steps you can take towards a healthy living!
Keep it simple
Don't be fooled by cosmetic advertising: Myriad creams, lotions, and cosmetics most often make promises they could never deliver on. Our recommendation is to keep it simple: All you need is a basic cleanser, moisturizer, and broad-spectrum sunscreen to keep your skin in tip-top shape. Everything else is just dressing.
How natural is natural?
Toxic synthetic chemicals are the biggest issue in the beauty industry today, so it pays to hone a keen eye when it comes to examining product labels. Many companies put false claims that their products are natural when only a minute percentage of that product when tested is actually natural. So ensure your products are totally naturals.
Embrace natural fragrance
Artificial fragrances, mostly contain phthales that can cause allergic reactions and other health problems. Be mindful of the hidden dangers that "fragrance" or "perfume" listed on ingredients labels can pose, and always choose fragrance-free products or products that use fragrance from natural ingredients.
Give a break to petrochemicals
Used for face cream or found in the form of coal tar for scalp-treatment shampoos, petroleum by-products can be contaminated by cancer-containing impurities. A non-renewable and environmentally unfriendly resource, petroleum barely belong in your car, let alone on your skin. Identify it on labels as petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin.
Stay beautiful inside and outside
You don't have to resort to a flurry of creams and lotions, chemical peels, to get fresh, glowing skin. Diet and exercise should play vital roles in your skincare regimen, as well. Besides working up a good sweat to keep nutrient-carrying blood circulating throughout your body, be sure to feed yourself plenty of protein, healthy fats (such as omega-3 fish oils or flaxseed oils), complex carbohydrates, and fruit. Drinking six to eight glasses of water is also a boon for flushing out toxins that might otherwise show up on your skin.
Don't follow exotic trends
Every now and then, a bizarre new trend promises to be the magic bullet for all your skin care woes but ends up being downright cruel, whether to you or the planet. So be wary of such trends and don’t fall for them!
