Why You May Want To Use Natural Cosmetics

Fresh herbs in wicker basket and all-natural cosmeticsIt’s a simple fact that women use a lot of make up in order to look their best. However, anyone could benefit from using a little bit of make up. Even guys could find some use for a bit of foundation and some mascara. However, there’s no denying that women use the most make up. That being the case with as much makeup as a woman has to use on a day to day basis, it would make more sense to purchase the cheapest cosmetics that they can find, right?

The real truth is that natural cosmetics are far better than most of the chemical based cosmetics that are on the market today. There are many reasons for this, ranging from the effect on your skin to the effect on the environment.

To start with, chemical based cosmetics can often cause a number of different skin problems that most people would rather avoid. It’s been proven that certain chemicals in various skin lotions and foundations can actually dry out the skin. This causes skin to become dry and scratchy and might actually wind up causing a problem often known as “chicken skin.” No one wants their skin to become dry and scratchy and absolutely no one wants their skin to become hard and leathery. With many of the chemical based cosmetics, you’ll find that your skin will come to need those cosmetics in order to simply look normal.

Cosmetics made with natural ingredients, by contrast, tend to help your skin stay soft and hydrated. This is because the natural substances used in the cosmetics are specially formulated to be the most gentle, appropriate things to use on your skin. They’re specially made in order to keep your skin from drying out and looking horrid.

In addition to all the benefits these products have on your skin, they also have a better effect on the environment. Many of the various chemical based cosmetics require harsh processes in order to produce. These processes tend to cause a great deal of chemical run off. The chemical run off has to go somewhere and it often winds up going into the ground which causes problems for future crop growth. When it goes into the water it can cause problems for necessary wild life or destroys clean drinking water.

Cosmetics that have all-natural ingredients will not cause the same problems. Because they’re made out of all natural substances, there’s no harsh chemical process needed in order to produce them. Instead, they’re put together by hand in more traditional ways.

There are simply so many different ways natural cosmetics are better than the chemical-based cosmetics. Even though they can be slightly more expensive, in almost every case, it’s absolutely worth the cost. They’re better for your skin and keeps your skin looking soft and nice. They are better for the environment, keeping the harsh chemicals out of the water and out of the ground. For these reasons, you should make the switch.
