Natural beauty products are finally getting their day in the sun. Not only do natural ingredients make people feel good, but they also make people look good, too. Gone are the days when one had to choose between purity and performance; today’s natural skincare products provide both.
If you’re undecided about making the swap to a natural skincare routine, consider these five reasons why natural beauty is the better choice.
5 reasons to make the switch to natural skincare…
- Better for the planet
At each stage of processing, from planting to harvesting, organic products are better for the environment. The ingredients are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers that can contaminate rivers and negatively impact surrounding wildlife.
- Better for your body
Your skin is your largest organ, and everything that you put on it gets absorbed into your body and bloodstream. Many personal care products are made with chemicals that can cause a disruption in your endocrine system or increase your cancer risk. Beware of ingredients like parabens, phthalates, and preservatives like BHT and BHA.
- Better for animals
You don’t have to be an animal fanatic to understand the sad reality of testing beauty products on animals. Natural beauty products are cruelty-free, as they do not test on animals at any point of development or manufacture.
- Better for allergies
Avoiding a known allergen is easy when you read labels. It’s the unknown allergens that can be sneaky. What appears to be a harmless “fragrance” can actually be one of 3000 different chemicals. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe, so you might not even realise that the slight irritation under your chin is from your facial serum.
- Better for your beauty
Your skin is a reflection of your choices. When you choose to live a healthy and holistic lifestyle, it shows. Healthy ingredients are better for your skin, giving you a radiant and youthful glow.
