Natural makeup products can actually improve the quality of a person’s skin. Unlike traditional cosmetics that clog pores, gets caked up, and often leaves a woman’s face looking artificial and mask like, natural products are made specifically to compliment what nature has created. Of course this means chemical free and natural.
Many store shelves are filled with products that would never sell if women really knew what was in them. Mercury, lead, industrial chemicals and more do not sound like something anyone should be putting on their face or anywhere near their body for that matter.
Recently a study was conducted on women’s lipstick. Four hundred different brands were included in this study. The findings showed that most commercial lipstick included a significant amount of lead. According to the United States food and drug administration the lead levels fall into the category of “safe” amounts for human exposure. Many disagree. One mother in particular pointed to a situation involving her young daughter. After using an FDA approved children’s play makeup the child experienced an extreme reaction that required immediate medical treatment. The mother indicates that the young girl’s face had become swollen beyond recognition at three times its usual size. Safe use? Perhaps not…
The largest organ of the human body is the skin. Everything in a person’s environment has an effect on the skin, which is also absorbent. Certainly we have limited control over what is in the air, but surely have complete control of what we ingest and or apply to our bodies. Considering that anything absorbed into the skin enters the bloodstream, people should be very aware of what this stuff is.
Nourishment feeds the body and the skin. Poison will kill the body, so it is natural to assume that it also kills or at least damages the outside as well. We are what we eat, and so is our skin.
Traditional cosmetics generally contain preservatives, chemical dyes, and oil among other ingredients. For people with chemical sensitivity, acne, eczema and many other conditions this can be a recipe for disaster. Even those without typical skin conditions will frequently experience problems. This makes wearing traditional makeup impossible and certainly not a pleasant experience. In the past, many just did not bother.
Thanks to natural makeup products all women can look great, be healthy, and know they are doing the best thing for their bodies.
