For your overall health and the health of our planet, natural makeup is a choice we should all consider. Parabens and SLS have known additives that should be avoided, while natural herbs, oils, and extracts produced without synthetic materials used in organic skincare products are usually safer.
When selecting natural and organic products, the ultimate advantage is that they efficiently provide our skin with long-lasting health. The levels of natural nutrients found in essential vitamins and minerals are typically much higher and organic products are healthier for the climate. Natural makeup is also environmentally friendly. Organic and natural products are keys to healthy and youthful skin. Clean beauty products are usually free of toxic additives including parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrance and are the best choice for sensitive or acne-prone skin.
Yes, it’s true that natural makeup is more costly than traditional makeup, usually because organic cosmetic products are produced with high-quality natural ingredients. And the rich nutrients make natural makeup more expensive. That and the fact that they are typically manufactured in smaller quantities.
Chemicals found in traditional makeup is very rough on the skin. They promote inflammation and allergic reactions and for people with sensitive skin, it can be difficult to work with non-organic makeup which is toxic for our overall health. Two common examples of compounds used widely in cosmetics are parabens and phthalates; substances that have been associated with diabetes and cancer.
Instead, choose brands that are synthetic and fragrance-free cosmetics. Choose according to your skin type and make sure that the products are paraben free.
Our skin ages with time and becomes more sensitive. Non-organic products with harsh chemicals are more likely to produce rashes, redness, and irritation. Natural makeup without the petrolatum and parabens won’t irritate your skin like chemical-laden cosmetics. Plus, natural makeup can help soothe irritation, making our skin look younger and healthier.
Our faces are regularly exposed and sensitive to ultraviolet rays and thus need protection. Fortunately, organic products contain antioxidants that can help minimize the effects of sun damage, such as vitamin C. Nutrient-rich organic cosmetic products also help provide extra protection for UV rays without harming your skin. They can help to encourage healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Cruelty-free makeup products are not tested on animals. Natural organic makeup is not only eco-friendly, it’s rich in nutrients. These cruelty-free products are safe for your skin. With natural products, there is less risk of skin problems, infections, and irritation.
Some spa treatments such as dermaplaning can also be considered natural and healthy. Avoiding unnatural and harmful treatments and overexposure to any chemicals and compounds that can block pores and damage your skin’s elasticity is also a good idea.
