Top 6 Reasons Why to Switch to Natural Cosmetics
They are not toxic and help you in healing
Most organic cosmetic products are made with fruit, herb and vegetable extracts that are especially great for your skin and body. They don’t contain any harsh chemicals like parabens, SLS, formaldehyde or phthalates that are the one of the most toxic and most used ingredients in conventional cosmetic products. You can find them in literally everything. They cause you a lot of health problems including cancer and hormonal disorders. Did you know that having a lot of acne are also a hormonal disorder? Healthy people do not have any acne maybe sometimes but in today’s world it is a very common “illness” sadly. These toxins are also harmful for your estrogen.
No negative effects on the environment
Fortunately, more and more companies have a recycled packaging, like 100% Pure. It is a fantastic thing because if you think about that how much trash can accumulate in the world you could create millions of new beautiful packaging from them. In addition, natural brands are not test on animals which is a very valuable thing. If a product is healthy and doesn’t contain any toxins then it doesn’t need any tests.
26 seconds is all it takes for your skin to absorb what you put on it.
You could have heard it thousands of times but I will tell you again and again that your skin is an organ too and everything you put on it going to be absorbed into your skin, and what’s under your skin? Yep, your bloodstream. Many people suffer from allergies, eczema, skin irritations and sensitivity due to toxic products. In contrast to natural products, they positively affect your skin and body. There are some people who may not react positively to natural essential oils because of some allergic reactions to certain ingredients. Natural products are healthy, they contain essential oils, essential fats like olive oil, avocado, coconut or almond butter and they also contain hydrolates like organic rose water, lavender, tea tree that are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-septic and so on. They are often used in natural cosmetic products, mainly instead of water.
The health of your children matters too
In the long term, it will also benefit the yet unborn children of yours because they won’t have to deal with the toxic burden of yours. As you know, using toxic products in the long term will make your body store a percentage of it in your body mainly in your fat cells. These toxic stored substances will also enter into the bloodstream of the child you are caring. Imagine defenseless baby having to deal with all of these toxic stuff with still immature immune system.
You don’t need to use them for your entire life
Since natural products are healing your skin it is not necessary to buy them all the time. They contain nothing but ingredients that actually work pretty good and sooner or later but they will eliminate your problems.
They deliver the promise
Natural brands won’t lie about their products because they know what they’re doing. They know that their ingredients are the best and it will benefit you greatly. I have an eye cream that is against dark circles and it works amazing just as promised. It contains coffee, aloe juice, rose hydrosol and other nourishing nontoxic ingredients that I love.
They will also positively affect your mood because of its essential oils. Citrus and orange essential oils are always energizing me, lavender helps me to calm down so I love to use it while I’m taking a bath or before sleep. In addition, natural oils like peppermint, tea tree, lemon or fir needle will purify the air. They are amazing against bacteria or viruses too.
As you can see, there are a lot of reasons why you should use only natural and organic products and why you should quit the conventional ones as soon as possible. We all want to look beautiful but please don’t sacrifice your health for it because it is not worth it in the long term.
