What are the 6 reasons you should switch to natural cosmetics?
If I should give you a short and simple answer, I would say because they are good for you. Yes, I know that it sounds typical but I’m not here to preach but to teach and inform you. 🙂 Below you can find the top 6 reasons why to switch to natural cosmetics.
Did you know that before the appearance of huge cosmetic companies people used to use natural ingredients in their cosmetic products?
Ancient Egyptians were the first people who started using makeup and it took an integral part in their health and hygiene. They used minerals for makeup and various scented oils like thyme, chamomile, lavender, peppermint, marjoram, myrrh, rosemary, olive oil, almond oil, sesame oil and rose to soften and clean their skin. These herbs were also the basic ingredients of their perfumes, body butters and creams. They often created body oils and butters.
Ancient Chinese people started using gum Arabic, beeswax, gelatin and egg on their fingernails. The colors also represented their social class. In addition, Asian people used to use rice powder to make their faces more white and bright.
In Rome, people often used to put barley flour and butter on their skin to avoid acne.
See? Cosmetic industry wasn’t that toxic like now. They always tried to use the best quality to stay healthy and to make their people respect them as Gods because of their look.
Producing natural products is a very difficult thing in today’s world because the population has grown and it is very hard to create only organic products. Natural foods just can’t follow the huge demand and companies can’t recreate them as fast as the synthetic ones. That is the reason why natural and organic products are much more expensive and other companies decided to synthesize.
But you know, I think that this is normal that we should wait for natural things. It’s like a human being doesn’t grow up in a mere 1 or 2 years. Sounds creepy, right? We always have to wait for the best and the healthiest and that’s okay.
Why would you use them if they are causing you a lot of trouble?
Cosmetic products are very important in our life because they help us to highlighting our nicest features on our face and help nourish and hydrate our skin for example, with body butters and creams.
But apart from it, you don’t have to sacrifice your own health for it. It is just not worth it. Regular cosmetic products are full with toxic ingredients that will cause you a lot of break outs, skin cancer, brown stains, skin irritation and so on. Why would you use them if they are causing you a lot of trouble? You want to hide your acne scars with your foundation but exactly that toxic foundation will cause you more and more acne and irritation. Please think before you act.
In contrast to organic products they will not only not cause you break outs but they are definitely going to heal and nourish your skin. I am not saying this because I am biased about them. This is a well-known thing and I have watched a lot of videos about people who switched to organic makeup and skincare and they had only good opinions about it. Their skin literally changed and their mood too. 🙂
All right, so let’s see why you should switch to only natural and organic products and if you haven’t switched yet why you have to.
After reading the 6 reasons, you can see where to buy them as well. Don’t miss out! 😉
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.
