You might wonder why the cost of organic foods are through the roof. Here are some reasons why.

Top 10 factors contributing to the high price of organic food:
1. No chemicals = more labor
2. Demand overwhelms supply
3. Higher cost of fertilizer for organic crops
4. Crop rotation
5. Post-harvest handling cost
6. Organic certification
7.  Cost of covering higher loss
8.  Better living conditions for livestock
9.  Organic food grows more slowly
10. Subsidies

Money-saving tips
Until then, try to get most of your organic food from farmers  markets. You’ll be supporting local farmers and purchasing the food at a  reduced price since you’re cutting out the middle-man retailer
. You can plug in your city or zip code and get a list of all of the farmers markets in your area.

It’s also important to note that you don’t need to buy all foods  organic. The Environmental Working Group’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides  has a "Clean 15
"  list of the 15 types of produce lowest in pesticides. Save your money  for the other organic produce and buy the conventional versions of  these:
1.Onions
2.Sweet corn
3.Pineapples
4.Avocado
5.Asparagus
6.Sweet peas
7.Mangoes
8.Eggplant
9.Cantaloupe — domestic
10.Kiwi
11.Cabbage
12.Watermelon
13.Sweet potatoes
14.Grapefruit
15.Mushrooms

Bare Skin Care - Is it possible for a retinol eye cream to make my under-eye wrinkles worse?

by Charles Bollmann May 28, 2019

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
