Most of us have been working hard on putting toxic situations in the past and so did we with that old relationship with skincare products with filled chemical ingredients.
Beauty and skincare products with natural ingredients are in demand and have become more sought after recently, with good reason. If you’re still on the fence about saying bye to your toxic products, here is why you should!
- Have a peace of mind of what you’re using on your body. There is currently a huge controversy surrounding the safety of synthetic ingredients in skincare products. While studies are being conducted, why not sleep soundly knowing what you’re putting into and on your body is natural and not man-made?
- Sensitive skin typically reacts well to natural ingredients. Those who have sensitive skin tend to have better reactions to natural products. Chemical and artificial ingredients can cause redness and irritation leading to itchy and dry skin. Using natural products can give sensitive skin a much needed break. Switching to a skincare product without harsh chemicals will help your skin as it begins to work on repairing the imbalance imposed by the strong artificial ingredients.
- Watch out for products with a long shelf life. Skincare products with a long shelf life are typically filled with synthetic ingredients like parabens. These preservatives are used to prolong the natural process of a product from going bad, like getting bacteria or mold. When choosing skincare and beauty products, you should think of the process like buying a fruit or vegetable. If you knew a banana you were about to eat was grown with synthetic chemicals and pesticides, wouldn’t you question if it’s good to be putting in your body?
Organic products with natural ingredients can and will go bad faster than products with synthetic ingredients and preservatives, but they are doing so without being altered. Using products with authentic ingredients is treating yourself in the best way possible because it’s actually beneficial to you long term.
