Hi RESHAPE ladies!
I love make up and beauty products, I have so much fun trying new ones! Over the last couple of years, I have been researching about the products I have used for years and am now very conscious about the products I choose. I always try to make sure that the ingredients are as clean as possible.
There are so many incredible organic lines of makeup and beauty products on the market today, next time you are at the drug store or your favorite beauty bar, grab a few samples of organic products and tell us about it.
I found 5 excellent reasons why you should try to incorporate organic makeup into your daily routine. Let me know what Organic beauty products you love.
No Harsh Chemicals
Although they may be effective for improving appearance, albeit temporarily, the chemicals in conventional makeup are often very harsh on skin and may promote irritation or allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. A reddish and haggard hue is certainly not going to help you look your best! More importantly, many of the chemicals used in non-organic makeup are downright poisonous to the endocrine system. Parabens and phthalates are two common examples of substances that are used extensively in cosmetics. Both of these compounds have been linked to cancer and type II diabetes, and the Environmental Protection Agency warns against their exposure.
Many people shop with their nose when it comes to personal care products, similarly to the way most people “eat with their eyes” before actually placing any of the food into their mouths. The two human senses will usually help determine a product’s worthiness in the minds of consumers. Scents in the majority of beauty products consist of a mixture of chemicals, and these chemicals can be inhaled throughout the day by people who wear such beauty products.
Man-made aromas expose the body to a number of toxic effects, and some research has linked them to cancer, nervous system disorders, allergies, and birth defects. Not only do humans inhale these chemicals into their lungs, they also expose their skin to these toxic compounds. When choosing beauty products, always make sure that the scents are derived from 100% natural ingredients. Essential oils are perhaps one of the best natural perfumes in the world and the most concentrated in terms of aroma. That being said, keep in mind that a little dab goes a long way.
Your skin has the ability to absorb certain compounds; however, a protective barrier is able to keep dangerous compounds, to some degree, out of the body. Even then, research still concludes that personal care products, when applied topically, can damage bodily systems and lead to untold health consequences. One of the key rules for makeup, and any beauty product is basic and straightforward: if you can’t eat it, don’t wear it.
Cocoa butter is one of the leading natural moisturizers out there, providing essential fatty acids for healthy, youthful skin. Organic makeup, especially liquid foundation, may have cocoa butter or various nutrient-rich oils to provide a smoother, more youthful look. Extracts of white tea, grapes, apricots, and pomegranate seeds provide antioxidant protection and may inhibit collagenase and elastase, two enzymes that break down the integrity and elasticity of the skin.Aside from allergies, you can’t go wrong when choosing a makeup that contains added nutritive components and herbal extracts.
Protection from Premature Aging
Makeup made with natural minerals generally provides a certain level of sun protection. The skin on the face is thinner and more susceptible to UV-related skin aging, so choosing a mineral-rich, organic cosmetic product may help support healthy, youthful-looking skin. Many organic products also provide antioxidants like vitamin C, which has been demonstrated to provide sun-shielding benefits. Choosing the right makeup is especially important during the summer months when the sun is at its strongest.
Gentle on Your Skin
Why on earth would you want to use harsh chemicals on your skin that are not only dangerous to both your health and the earth, but also rough on your skin? How can it be beautifying to use a product that dries your skin, making it look tired and dull? Even if there’s a temporary benefit from chemical-based cosmetics, that benefit comes at a cost: your future beauty. Do you want your skin to age prematurely? Do you want to increase your risk of suffering from a chronic disease? There’s certainly nothing beautiful about that!
