Why natural beauty care is better than using chemical products.
In today’s world, everything is about aesthetics. With the rise of social media and the latest trend of ‘selfies’, we are constantly reminded of how beauty is everything nowadays. While this is a rather sad and shallow way of life, it is hard to ignore, and most of us try our hardest to keep up with the image obsessed world.
Cosmetics companies are making billions because of this, but what we don’t realise is that we don’t have to turn to those man-made, extremely pricey products to maintain a good beauty regime. In fact, some of the best beauty products can be found in our own homes or on the shelves of our local grocery store. Coconut oil, almond oil, avocado, honey, sugar and endless other products can be used to give us beautiful skin, hair and nails. There are so many reasons to ditch the fancy labelled products.
Natural beauty products are cheaper.
This one is quite obvious, but often we don’t realise how many thousands (if not more) we spend on beauty products every year. Big brands sell various lotions and potions for ridiculous prices. We could achieve the same results from natural products and combinations at a fraction of the cost. Obviously, the reason we still spend so much on name brands is because they spend so much on advertising.
Natural beauty products are gentler.
Most of us don’t even bother to read up on some of the chemicals found beauty products. If we did, we would be shocked. Some of these chemicals include formaldehyde, parabens (which can cause cancer), and even lead and mercury! Natural beauty products are, of course, all natural.
Natural beauty products are kinder.
Not only are they kinder to the environment, beauty products do not, in any way, cause harm to animals. We all know that the majority of big beauty brands test on animals, yet we choose to turn away from the reality of animal testing. Maybe we are in denial, or perhaps the way we look is more important to us. If we were truly exposed to the barbaric acts committed on animals-even beloved kittens and puppies-we would throw out all of our cosmetics.
Switching to natural beauty products is so easy these days, with so much information around on what to use and how to use it. It should be the obvious decision to make as it is kinder to your body, the environment, your wallet and to animals.
