Natural Skin, Body & Beauty Products: Three Reasons To Make The Switch
Today Beauty lovers can all agree that a consistent routine for your face and body is essential. Have you ever stopped to think about the chemicals and ingredients that your skin comes into contact with due to your daily rituals? Or maybe you’ve heard the buzz about natural or clean beauty, and you’re wondering what it’s all about? We’ve compiled a little breakdown to help you better understand the importance of what you put on your skin if this is you. As it turns out, there are a lot of perks to choosing natural beauty products. Here are a few of our favorite benefits:
1. Natural products are super skin nurturing. It’s a common misconception that it needs to be harsh or aggressive for skincare to be effective. Luckily, this philosophy is becoming a thing of the past, as more beauty experts recognize the importance of properly hydrating, healing, and protecting the skin. Natural products are perfect for this because while they can be plenty potent for rejuvenating dry or dull skin, they can also work very well to balance and nourish the skin without irritating it or robbing it of vital moisture. Additionally, because most popular drug store brands are formulated in large batches, they contain more synthetic or filler ingredients, which don’t do much for your skin. One advantage of small-batch, natural products is that they utilize simpler, purer ingredients such as plant-based oils, butters, and other botanical extracts.
2. Natural products support holistic health and wellness. An easy way to think of your skin is like a sponge. When it comes into contact with products applied topically, those products and their ingredients get absorbed by the skin, making their way deep into the epidermis and bloodstream. The science community has begun to study the effects of various chemical compounds commonly found in personal care products. Unfortunately, their findings reveal that certain ingredients are more problematic than others. According to research, ingredients like sulfates and synthetic fragrances are shown to irritate the skin, whereas others can have more serious health risks. For example, parabens and phthalates have been linked to hormone disruption and increased risk of certain cancers. To avoid these types of toxins, it’s a good idea to start paying attention to the ingredients in your favorite products and look for natural additives that you recognize and can pronounce.
3. Natural products are better for the planet. In case glowing skin and holistic wellness weren’t reasons enough to switch to more natural products, it’s also worth it because ingredients that are harmful to us can also harm the environment. Studies have found that cosmetic and personal care ingredients such as synthetic fragrances and chemicals eventually end up in our water and soil. When this happens, the natural ecosystem is disrupted, and this can harm native plants and animals.
So if you’ve wanted to become a more conscious consumer, your beauty shelf is a perfect place to get started. By choosing sustainably made products with natural components, you’ll be helping to support your skin and preserve the planet.
