Unless you’ve had your head under a rock for the last few years, you’ll no doubt realise that organic makeup has become incredibly popular.
As with many things that have a sharp rise in popularity, there’s a lot of people writing it off as just a passing trend. However, that is just not the case.
Organic makeup and beauty products are more than just a gimmicky trend and switching to them could be one of the best decisions you make in life.
As well as helping yourself when you use organic makeup, you are also helping the planet too. For those points alone, is it really so surprising that organic beauty products are so popular now?
In the following post we will briefly discuss more about unprocessed makeup – whether it’s an organic rejuvenating eye cream (such as this), all the way to a complete face mask – and why you should make it a part of your life, if it isn’t already.
It is thought that on average, everyone uses around five beauty and makeup products as part of their regular routine. Although that’s not a huge amount, if one or two of those was removed, you’d noticed the difference.
Now, think about this for a moment – the feeling of knowing you are doing something that’s actually good for your skin and body. That’s why so many people have made the switch to natural and organic makeup.
Take a look at some of the biggest benefits, if you still need convincing, below.
The Benefits of Organic Beauty and Skin Products
As the name suggests, they don’t have any toxic or nasty chemicals that are often found in traditional, standard beauty products like phthalates and parabens.
Therefore, they are less likely to cause any breakouts on your skin or allergic reactions and irritations. Even more so, they have a nice natural fragrance that’s not likely to cause any irritation either.
A far cry from the fake and rather harsh scents you sometimes get with traditional products.
Another big reason why you should invest in organic beauty products that we touched on at the outset is the fact that they are normally more environmentally-friendly, particularly as petroleum is not involved in making them.
Although it may not seem like a lot, if you are trying to live a greener life, switching to natural makeup and beauty products is another way you can help save the planet rather than make it worse.
Does Your Current Skincare Product Contain Pure Ingredients?
There are even more reasons to switch to organic still. As they feature purer ingredients, they tend to be full of beneficial nutrients that are absorbed into your skin.
This helps you to not only have a more youthful and healthy look but to actually feel healthier too.
One example of this in particular is cocoa butter, which is often used in organic products and has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
Other common ingredients like apricots, white tea, grape and pomegranate are rich in antioxidants which helps your skin retain its elasticity and offers protection against the damage caused by free radicals.
So, if you want to look and feel better, you are better using products with natural and organic ingredients.
Last, but by no means least, natural and organic products are a powerful help in the the fight we all face against premature aging. Here are some more tips to guard against anti-aging – https://www.aad.org/public/skin-hair-nails/anti-aging-skin-care/causes-of-aging-skin.
Formulas in most standard products need SPF to be incorporated and mixed separately. That makes it all more expensive and means that many people are put off.
However, raw and organic ingredients have built-in protection, meaning your epidermis (definition) will be as fresh as a daisy for a long time.
