Which Natural Cosmetics Will Suit Your Skin

It is difficult choosing natural cosmetics from the wide range of such cosmetics now available. Things become more complicated when most of these natural compounds may not suit your skin. Synthetic or natural, there is no gauranty that a particular type will suit your skin. Just because a cosmetic uses natural products does not mean it would suit your skin.

Before narrowing down on a type of product, its better to consult your dermatologist and ascertain the tolerance level of your skin. She would also be able to guide you better in issues related to conditioning your skin. A dermatologists main task is to classify your skin type and in determining its sensitivities. For example, some skin types are allergic to direct sun and bleach very fast under the sun leaving red spots behind. If this is the case the dermatologist may advice a natural skin cream which blocks the sun UV rays. Also, since this skin type is highly allergic, the dermatologist may ask you to test the cream for a few days. It is very difficult to determine before hand what type of cream would suit your skin. It is a matter of trial and error. But there are certain benchmarks established such as not prescribing a oil based cream to someone prone to acne. Your dermatologist comes into picture if there are any major side effects. Under her supervision you would be able to mitigate adverse situations.

Our skin is such a sensitive part of our body that even frangrances in natural cosmetics can cause irritation. And all natural ingridients do not insure that our skin will not react to them. According to regulations all natural cosmetics must have atleast 70% natural products approved by the government. This makes much of the volume of your cosmetics made of natural products which are proven safe for atleast 90% of skin types.

Most of the natural cosmetics use one or more of these natural ingredients which are proven safe : Aloe Vera, Rosemary, Strawberry, Mint, Iris etc. By reading the ingredient list of any cosmetic and your past experience you can get a rough idea whether it will suit you or not.
