You’ve heard it all before: the skin is the largest organ of your body—following through with a diet and overhauling your lifestyle in favor of something that’s ore organic and all-natural isn’t really complete until you’ve matched your beauty regimen with a similarly healthier and safer process. Even if you’re not that active about nurturing your skin deep self yet, or merely starting out and deciding that applying all-natural beauty products are your best bet, it’s good practice to be aware of your options and reexamining them if you’re not that satisfied with your current choices.
It’s easy to scoff at people who are wary of using conventional beauty products—after all, most people are accustomed to buying these same products on a regular basis. Nevertheless, even an offhand Google search will more likely lead you to believe that these mass produced cosmetics aren’t as harmless as they initially appear to be. All-natural skincare products aren’t different from their top-selling counterparts, in fact they aim to be as similar as possible, with one notable exception: their ultimate aim of providing holistic care of your skin (and face) doesn’t take precedence over, and more importantly work to keep the user safe and confident that they’re not gambling their health for the sake of cosmetics-based convenience.
Moisturizers, soaps and lotions are routinely applied to your body depending on how thorough you are about keeping it clean and well taken care of. You’re not going to be as eager to apply these products once you discover toxic chemical ingredients and preservatives like sulfates and parabens into whatever big name, artificial beauty products you keep within an arm’s reach. In addition, most of the same skincare items typically include additives and fillers that don’t do much except for possibly harming your skin aside from adding to the product’s overall cost.
When you’re finally ready to take the next step, then it’s only logical that you start looking for natural ingredients yourself and making a homemade beauty product for your own personal use instead of taking any further chances with potentially damaging cosmetics.
There’s really no downside to making a lasting change from artificial body care products—buying each organic ingredient piecemeal might take some getting used to, and may lead to logistically induced migraines (a worst case scenario) the first few tries—but it’s not going to be a problem as long as you’ve made sure you’re well-informed about which recipes to make and ingredients to use in based on your skincare needs.
We’ll keep it brief: even if you haven’t got the time to make these recipes yourself, at least consider buying readymade organic beauty products with ingredients and oils made of coconut, olive, tea tree, vegetable glycerine, shea and cocoa butter, etc.
