"If it can be done naturally, why go for artificial means" - this is the basic premise on which organic skin care works. Organic skin care is the most natural way of skin care. In fact, organic skin care was the first to be used by humans when they first woke-up to the needs of their skin. If exercised in the right way, organic skin care can prevent the occurrence of a lot of skin disorders and can help keep your skin healthy and young-looking for a much longer time.

Organic fruits and vegetables are extremely popular in organic skin care routines, for example cucumber is very common. A main component of cucumbers, silica, is an important substance for good health and skin. Its juice contains silica, which enhances skin tone and its texture. Cucumber is also known to have a high level of fluid, making it naturally hydrating and important for radiant skin.

Studies on the juice of the plantain plant have shown the it is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Plantain contains allantoin, an anti-inflammatory phytochemical that aids in wound healing, stimulates the growth of new skin cells and kills germs.

Papayas are packed with nutrients, vitamins and key enzymes that sooth the body from the both the inside or the outside! You are what you eat!

Use of organic honey is also popular in organic skin care procedures. It helps in retention of moisture and helps impart a glowing look to skin.

These organic materials have a very refreshing and vitalizing effect on your skin. Almost every skin care book/guide has a section on organic skin care (including the actions of various fruits and vegetables on skin). Choose the ones that are most suitable for your skin type and experiment until you find the ones most suitable for your organic skin care routine.

Organic skin care uses combinations of various organic materials that complement each other and enhance each other's effectiveness. It's really an art that, once perfected for your skin, can truly provide the nurturing and beautifying results of Mother Nature!
