If you search online for skin care tips, you will literally find thousands of pages offering you advice. Some advice comes from doctors, but most comes from companies that want you to buy their product. There is one piece of advice that encompasses almost every tip that truly works, however.

The best skin care tip anyone can ever give you is simply, go organic. It may seem like a small tip, but in the paragraphs that follow, I will explain how following this one piece of advice can literally change the way you see yourself and skin care forever. First I will explain the most important reason to go organic.

Would you drink a bottle of pesticide if the company asked you to? How about drinking just a sip? Did you know that when you use most chemical based skin care products you are doing just that? Many skin care products contain ingredients that are also commonly used in pesticides and weed killers. Other chemicals, such as alcohols, fragrances, and dyes are less drastic but very damaging to the skin and body nonetheless.

Here is a fact you may not know. Anything you allow to be absorbed into your pores travels into your bloodstream. This means you are effectively eating every skin care product you use. Now that you know this, read the label on your current skin care products again. Would it be safe to eat all of these ingredients? If not, then you should not be putting them on your skin either.

Truly organic skin care is made up of only natural ingredients, which means you won't find any harsh chemicals or synthetic materials. Of all the skin care tips you have ever heard, you are now beginning to understand why the if you can't eat it, don't use it rule is one of the best. The reason I have already given you, however, is only the tip of the iceberg.

Another reason for my organic skin care tip is that organic products simply work better. Not all organic products are created equal, and you still have to consider how effective the individual active ingredients are, but the fact remains that any time you have a skin care product that does not contain ingredients that damage your skin, you are going to achieve better results. Now we will examine some organic ingredients that are on the leading edge of skin care science and how they can benefit you.

I am sure you have heard of keratin. Keratin is a protein that is created by the skin and used to help retain elasticity and heal wounds and blemishes. As we age, our bodies begin to produce less of this valuable protein. Many products claim to contain keratin, but there are two very different types, and it is crucial to know the difference.

The products that are available in stores use inactive or synthetic forms of keratin. While structurally similar to the skin protein, this version is unrecognizable to skin and therefore unusable. An inactive protein or ingredient is just that, inactive.

There is, however, a form of keratin available that works. Called functional keratin but produced under the patented name Cynergy TK, this protein is almost identical to the protein made by our skin, and because it is live and active, our bodies can use it as though we made it ourselves. Derived from the wool of New Zealand sheep, Cynergy TK is proven to reduce wrinkles and restore elasticity to the skin.

Another ingredient is active manuka honey. Loaded with antioxidants, manuka honey penetrates all layers of the skin to destroy large numbers of free radicals and provide noticeable results. In addition, the honey has strong antibacterial properties, which means it can boost the immune system and help fight off colds, ulcers, and heal cuts and burns. How is that for a skin care tip?

In summary, most skin care tips are truly for your benefit. The one given above, however, may be the most beneficial of all. I urge you to look into truly organic skin care products and try the ingredients listed above. The difference you will see in your skin is nothing short of amazing!
