  • 4 simple steps to switch to natural care!

    4 étapes simples pour passer aux soins naturels !  - Dado Cosmetics

    Do you tend to buy your skincare at the drugstore? And yes, these stores are associated with health. Thus, we do not necessarily have the reflex to read the list of ingredients contained in conventional cosmetics! We trust!

    But following an awareness or a health problem or even a dissatisfaction with your current products, you decide to take the plunge and move towards quality natural care.

    Here are 4 steps to ease the transition.

    STEP 1

    Know how to be patient.

    If your skin has been accustomed to a certain beauty routine for years, changing it drastically might come as a shock to your skin. Concretely, this is what we call the rebound effect.

    The various silicones contained in certain creams form an occlusive film. "Silicone is a synthetic and inorganic polymer resulting from the succession of operations and chemical transformations of quartz. If the raw material is natural, the final result is very synthetic"

    Your skin no longer breathes because nothing penetrates it. You have the feeling that it is nourished but not really 😕

    This illusion of hydration prevents your skin from functioning normally and it becomes more and more dependent. Besides, you don't understand why you have to apply your lip balm or your hand cream again and again due to this weird feeling of not having applied anything. This is not normal because, with a natural lip balm like the one with precious baobab oil, your lips are coated in velvet. They are actually fed throughout the winter 💋 You can feel the difference!

    Your skin that was no longer functioning naturally is obliged to return to service with your new natural skincare routine. It has to rebel a little against these natural treatments 😅. It doesn't understand why you are doing this to her! So:

    - either it is docile and the transition is going wonderfully 👌🏽

    - or it's a growing teenager who rebels but with your legendary patience, you know that everything will be back to normal in a few weeks 👌🏽. PERSEVERE!

    For the record, when my children switched to natural care, my 5-year-old (at the time 😉) had a reaction. 5 years old and his body was already intoxicated 😱

    The skin around his eyes dried up and he stayed 🐼 for a few days.

    Her 3-year-old brother got nothing 🤷🏽‍♀️

    So, the inconveniences can be dryness, burning, and discomfort. It depends from person to person but just keep in mind that it's temporary 😏

    2ND STEP

    Do a detox.

    For example, before switching to natural deodorant, you could detox your armpits with bentonite clay. The latter will suck out the various heavy metals accumulated in your body. Sometimes, some people do not feel the effects of our natural aluminum-free deodorant, simply because their armpits are dirty. To follow the procedure, please watch the video: HERE.

    Take the opportunity to eat more vegetables and fruits. Add oilseeds with good essential fatty acids. Drink water. I'm not talking about quantity because it all depends on each person's lifestyle. If you eat a lot of vegetables, you won't need to consume a liter and a half of water. Are you athletic or not? All this plays on your body because you are what you eat

    Reduce frozen meals, industrial sugars, and cakes, carbonated drinks to a bare minimum.

    Exercise to sweat and eliminate toxins. It's good for the heart and the skin 😁

    STEP 3

    Don't skip!

    Don't try a new product for a week or two and then give up because you don't see results. Skin cells take almost 28 days to renew themselves. It is essential to give time. Do a patch test before using the product on your face.

    How to do a patch test?

    Put a little product sample in the bend of the elbow and wait 24 hours. In case of redness, itching, or irritation, do not use the product. It doesn't mean that the ingredients are bad, it's just that you are allergic to them and you can be allergic to anything and everything.

    This is like having a chemist brew your coffee at the café 😉

    STEP 4

    The decision, the real one.

    When we make a real decision, we empower ourselves. As women, when we understand our strength and power, we refuse to pollute our bodies to look beautiful out of love and self-respect because that's what it's all about. Do I have enough respect for myself to ensure that I only use natural care, which respects my health and my values? Prevention is always better than cure!

    We are also aware that each of our gestures or acts has consequences on our environment and our health. We must show respect for ourselves and serve as role models for our daughters, sisters, cousins, friends, and/or mothers. The list is long...

    Then today, with the growing number of natural treatments, you have the choice!

    Dado Cosmetics has chosen to specialize in natural care with precious oils from Africa. On the one hand, African women are rewarded at their fair value when they provide our raw materials and the consumer has the assurance of quality natural care. Win-win 🏆

    As women, we have the power to make a difference and leave a better world for the next generation 🙏🏾

    These were the 4 steps to facilitate your transition to natural skincare. Once the decision is made, the road is traced and you meet the right people and the right products.
