When you're accustomed to doing things the way you always have, you may not see why you would want to switch up your routine. But once you compare the benefits of natural beauty products to the way things used to be done, however, you'll see why you would want to adopt a new, natural lifestyle with beauty products that can help you look and feel great
Why use Natural Beauty Products:
Avoid Irritation: Chemicals, artificial colors, and fillers in skin care products can cause redness, irritation, and breakouts. Many people are even allergic to chemicals commonly found in conventionally produced products. Natural skin care products work with your skin instead of against it.
No Strange Side Effects: Parabens are used in conventionally produced beauty products as a preservative to extend the shelf life of products. Parabens, however, are synthetic and mimic your body’s natural hormones. Many people worry that this can alter the functions of your body’s endocrine system. Artificial ingredients like parabens may help a product do one thing well, but there could be possible side effects that are still being uncovered. Natural beauty products use natural preservatives, such as grapefruit seed extract, that won’t affect your body. And while some people have allergies to a few natural ingredients (lanolin, which comes from wool, is an allergen for some) the effects are much more understood than the ones from synthetic ingredients.
Gentler over Time: Many natural products work better than their conventional counterparts because they don’t contain unnecessary fillers or irritants. And while some unnatural products may seem to work better with the first try, over the long-term, the harmful chemicals that made your skin feel cleaner or your hair feel smoother may actually cause damage.
Earth-Friendly Products: Products made from conventionally produced ingredients can have a negative environmental impact. The manufacturing of chemical-heavy beauty products puts those chemicals, and many more, into the air and water, and even more go down your drain in your own home. When ingredients for natural beauty products are farmed and manufactured organically, fewer chemicals are put into the air and water.
