Why February is the Perfect Time to Go Organic
By Soap Blogger
Statistically speaking, most of the New Year’s resolutions you make for 2016 will have been well and truly broken long before February rolls around. This isn’t a pessimistic way of looking at things, it’s simply honest…not to mention accurate.
Why? Well, for the most part it comes down to the way in which the vast majority of people make resolutions that are neither pleasant nor plausibly sustainable. Instead, they tend to be the kinds of things we see more as punishments – taking away things we like, beginning things we don’t like or generally changing the way we prefer to do things.
However, there’s one notable exception to the rule which once tried for the first time almost immediately becomes a new and deeply-enjoyable lifestyle. Going organic is the kind of thing most people only do once, as it’s very difficult to go back to once you’ve personally experienced the lavish luxury of 100% organic skincare products. And not only does making such a switch represent the ideal resolution for the New Year, but the beginning of the year is also perhaps the very best time of the whole year to go organic.
First of all, it’s no secret that the winter weather can have nothing short of a devastating effect on the skin’s health and lustre in general. Freezing cold temperatures, sudden temperature changes and a distinct lack of sunlight really can come together to pack a punch. It’s been proven time and time again that organic skincare products – absolutely free of all synthetic ingredients – have the potential to provide the skin with a dose of exactly what it needs to both repair and prevent the severe damage the winter weather can cause.
Healthy skin is fundamentally dependent on a healthy body. Unsurprisingly, healthy bodies are not created and maintained by eating quite copious amounts of the kinds of foods we wouldn’t usually dream of indulging in, not to mention free-flowing festive libations. Long story short, the way the vast majority of us go completely over the top with overindulgence at Christmas doesn’t do a great deal of good for our bodies, or our skin.
And it is exactly the same story for healthy exercise too – two words which seem to be completely forgotten (or strategically ignored) throughout the Christmas period. By the time January comes, the damage is beginning to show inside and out – precisely why this is the perfect time to treat yourself, or anyone else in your life, to a dose of real organic luxury. Suffice to say, it’s a difference you’ll see, feel and appreciate in an instant.
Stride into Spring
Last but not least, one of the biggest reasons of all why February is the perfect time to switch to the organic way of life is the fact that the spring will once again be here before you know it. It’s impossible to deny that the thought of welcoming spring in a fantastic state of health with beautiful skin is infinitely more appealing than once again stepping into spring feeling tired, sluggish and not exactly looking your best. Switching to organic represents the kind of minor change that really can add up to an enormous difference.
