5 Reasons to Go Natural

When it comes to cosmetics, beauty is supposed to be skin deep-but the truth is that your body can absorb up to 60% of these products through your pores. This fact produces some unappetizing figures: Over a lifetime, the average woman ingests 30 pounds of the ingredients in moisturizers and about 4 pounds of lipstick.
Luckily, there are several cosmetic lines available that are both healthy and eco-friendly. Here are five good reasons to choose beauty products with natural ingredients:
1. Be gentle to your skin. For sensitive skin or conditions like acne, natural ingredients can provide a safe, hypoallergenic option. For acne, a mineral-based concealer, such as Disappear with Green Tea Extract from Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, can both conceal and heal, giving you the flawless look you desire without unwanted chemicals.
2. Be kind to animals. Many manufacturers that make natural beauty products also ensure that they are cruelty-free-meaning that no animal testing is performed during the product development process. All Pure Fiji products, including Sugar Rub are made from food-based ingredients that are never tested on animals-which means you can enjoy them guilt-free!
3. Protect your body. As your body will absorb a significant percentage of topical cosmetics, choose products made from natural ingredients that contain the antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that your body actually needs. Choose paraben-free options, such as the LaLicious Body Soap/Wash.
4. Save the planet. You are not only preserving your health by choosing non-toxic cosmetics, but you may be saving the world, too. When your makeup or haircare products are rinsed down the drain, these ingredients are introduced into the water supply-and any ingredients can potentially harm wildlife. Choose all-natural products, such as Jonathan Shampoo (vegan).
[Hot tip! Choose cosmetics from manufacturers that use eco-friendly packaging and materials. Not only does Stript invest in biodegradable packaging, but the handles on the company’s makeup applicators are also made from sustainable wood sources.]
5. Look great. Just because you say yes to natural, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Today’s natural beauty products are designed to give you the hottest looks and colors for every season. For example, the new Artists’ Eyes II (check stock) mineral eyeshadow palette from Iredale Mineral Cosmetics – use a lipstick instead features the sexy candy colors that are lighting up today’s runways-with ingredients that won’t irritate your skin.
