Your skin is the largest organ in your body. And, people often underestimate its importance. Skin isn’t just tissue that holds all the organs together (although, it does that, too), it is also a barrier against the nastiness, such as germs, the world throws your way. So, it is important to keep your skin healthy!
To help maintain my skin’s health, I drink water. Water carries vital nutrients to your skin, and moisture helps keep it supple. I also try to get ample nutrition from food, and supplement with an all-natural vitamin. I also follow a good skin care routine using natural products when possible.
Why is Organic Skin Care important?
Did you know that although your skin acts as a barrier, it is somewhat permeable and absorbs some things? Many cosmetics contain chemicals such as formaldehyde or ethanolamines which are linked to cancer and liver tumors! That’s a pretty high price to pay for beauty. For that reason, I believe that what I put on my body is as important as what I put into it.
So, Zatik sent me 3 products from their line and I’ve been using them for the last two weeks. First impressions: My skin has slightly more elasticity around the eyes. Dry patches on my cheeks dwindle. I look forward to my new skincare routine because I do feel a difference in the softness and moisture level.
These organic skin care products are
- USDA Certified organic (Be sure to read my article “What does Organic the Organic Label Really Mean?” for a quick-and-dirty laymen’s definition.)
- Soy Free
- pH Balanced
- Certified Cruelty-Free
- Recycled paper packaging printed with Soy Inks
Zatik Clarity Cleanser with Coconut and Matcha
I am in love with the unusual Zatik Clarity Cleanser with Coconut and Matcha (Available on Amazon or Zatik.com) . Like most organic cleansers, it doesn’t produce a lather; however, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t cleanse your skin. It’s a perfect makeup remover, too! Pump a few squirts in your palm, apply to your face, and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Then, rinse normally. I keep the bottle in my shower so I can let it sit on my face while I bathe.
The cleanser has a creamy smell and silky texture. The matcha imparts a light green. And, instead of feeling tight and squeaky, the Zatik Clarity Cleanser leaves my skin soft and hydrated.
Zatik Nutri Face Serum with Rose Hip and Black Seed
Since I have dry skin (thanks to getting a little older), I use the Zatik Nutri Face Serum with Rose Hip and Black seed in the morning and at night. But, if you don’t have dry skin, use it just one time a day. (Amazon or ZatikNatural.com)
Oils and extracts comprise the face serum, so it has an oily texture. However, it absorbs quickly. It has a very light, pleasant fragrance that I cannot identify. My parched, dry patches immediately soak it up, leaving behind a smooth finish. Since it does leave such a smooth texture, I like to use it under my makeup. It helps blush go on smooth instead of collecting in unsightly patches.
Zatik Eye Serum with Pomegranate and Eyebright
Yes. The Zatik Eye Serum contains Eyebright. Eyebright isn’t some proprietary concoction of secret ingredients. Eyebright is an ancient plant used for reducing swelling and redness in the eyes. It’s also called Euphrasia.
You can use this one once or twice a day (for dry skin). I’ve been using it twice a day. You gently dab a small amount around the eyes. I’ve noticed the skin around my eyes has a less crepey look and feel. Its creamy feel works well under cosmetics, as well. (Amazon or ZatikNatural.com)
