The Benefits of Natural Makeup
For products that go directly on the skin and are absorbed into the body, many people know surprisingly little about the chemicals in their makeup. Many assume that the products they use are strictly regulated, so there is no reason to be worried.
In reality, there is little regulation. Only 11 chemicals are regulated by the FDA and cosmetics don’t have to undergo safety tests before they hit the store shelves.
This is why more people are making a switch to natural makeup. It lacks potentially dangerous ingredients such as phthalates and parabens and contains enriching ingredients that are just as effective, if not more effective, as other makeup products in making your skin glow.
The Importance of Using Quality Skin Care Products
There is a common refrain that you should never put on your skin what you cannot eat. Obviously this is a bit of a generalization. There are many safe skin ingredients that I would not dare put in my mouth. But it makes an important point about being more aware of what you apply on your skin.
This is because what you apply on your skin will most likely also end up inside your body. And if it’s not good for the skin, it will affect your overall health too.
Quality skin care products have huge benefits that are skin deep and beyond.
Organic Cosmetics and Skin Care Industry Trends
In recent years there has been heightened concern over the safety of skin care products. People are more worried about what might be in that nail polish or foundation. They are paying more attention to the list of ingredients before making a purchase.
People are moving and using organic cosmetics and all natural solutions.
We have seen a raft of new developments in the beauty industry in response to consumer concerns and their need for safer but no less effective skin products.
One of the biggest developments has been the rise of organic alternatives. Alternatives like organic cosmetics and organic creams are becoming very popular.
You can now replace your skin care product lineup with 100% natural products. There are also organic moisturizers, shampoos, nail polishes, lipsticks and anything else you might need for your skin.
Thanks to improved research and technology, manufacturers are able to create safe organic products that are no less effective compared to their synthetic counterparts.
We have also seen the rise of mineral-based makeup products. These are products that contain a selection of minerals such as talc, iron oxide and zinc oxide. They have fewer chemicals and preservatives, provide more health benefits for the skin and are ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Another relatively recent trend is the development of highly targeted skin care products. There are products for dry, sensitive, oily, damaged, aged, dark, pale and all other different kinds of skins. These days you can get a product made specifically for your skin which reduces the risk of adverse reactions and delivers exactly what your skin needs.
