This is a common occurrence: You walk into a drugstore in search of a new shampoo, facial tonic, cleanser, cream, what have you. You stroll between the aisles picking up one product after another, looking for information on the product’s benefits, effects, and then you start reading the label only to find yourself completely perplexed – there is not a single ingredient on that label you can make any sense of. It is all synthetic chemicals, and that certainly cannot be good for your skin. Luckily, there is an alternative when it comes to skincare and cosmetics in general, and it lies in natural products. Here is a list of seven reasons why these products are on the rise and why you should hop on the natural bandwagon.
Benefits of Organic Cosmetics
What You See Is What You Get
When you buy a natural product, you know exactly what you are getting. You are familiar with all the names of the ingredients listed – because you know the names of these herbs and oils! You (and your skin) can be at peace having the knowledge that nothing you use can cause you any harm.
All Skin Types Are Welcome Onboard
Since the ingredients are all natural, you do not run the risk of developing irritation or rashes. Organic beauty products are hypo-allergenic and ensure that your skin is well taken care of, but unlike products filled with harmful chemicals, they are gentle and therefore suitable for all skin types.
Still Waters Run Deep
Although the positive effects of organic beauty products take longer to reveal themselves, as opposed to other products promising instant miraculous results, in the long run your skin will thank you for lavishing it with the former rather than the latter. Take your time; trust Mother Nature and your body will be better for it.
When used on a regular basis, natural products become your partner in the battle against skin aging. How? The answer is simple. Because of their structure, they do not dehydrate your skin and are not aggressive. Furthermore, given that most organic beauty products contain natural oils, vitamins, as well as titanium oxide, zinc oxide and iron oxide, not only will your skin be nourished and hydrated, it will also be shielded from negative effects of sun exposure.
No Animals Are Harmed
If you care about animals, as we all should, it is highly important that we support cosmetics brands which have a cruelty-free policy. If we deserve a good life (and good skincare), so do our furry and less furry neighbors.
Beauty Without the Beast
When talking about organic beauty products, e.g. makeup, there are tons of reasons to ditch your regular makeup case and go natural. If we are talking about foundation, you will discover that natural ones provide the same amount of coverage, but once you remove your makeup at the end of the day, you will find no usual traces of it – the breakouts, dryness or excessive greasiness. Instead of causing you harm, your makeup will work for your skin for once, and there is nothing not to love about that.
Easy on the Wallet
High-end products usually come with a price to match. Natural products offer more long-term benefits to you and the environment, and you do not have to go bankrupt in the process. In addition to them usually coming at a much more affordable price than synthetic products, most of them are often on sale, so next time you go beauty shopping, be on the lookout for good deals and you, as well as your wallet, will come out swinging!
