Use Natural Bath And Beauty Products
The benefits of using natural bath and beauty products
When you are accustomed to doing things the way you always have, you may not see why you would want to switch up your routine. But once you compare the benefits of natural health and beauty products to the way things used to be done, however, you will see why you would want to adopt a new, natural lifestyle with bath and beauty products that can help you look and feel great.
Products made from conventionally produced ingredients can have a negative environmental impact. The manufacturing of chemical-heavy products puts those chemicals, and many more, into the air and water, and even more go down your drain. When ingredients for natural products are manufactured, fewer chemicals are put into the air and water.
Chemicals, artificial colors, and fillers in skincare products can cause redness, irritation, and breakouts. Many people are even allergic to chemicals commonly found in conventionally produced products. Natural makeup, skincare products, and body products work with your skin instead of against it.
Help your nose
Artificial fragrances are designed to cover up the smell of other chemicals used in traditional health and beauty products. The effect is that you have a chemical to cover up another chemical, and all those chemical smells can cause headaches in many people. Natural bath and beauty products smell like their natural ingredients, not a cocktail of chemicals. Natural products scented with natural essential oils can even provide aromatherapy.
No weird side effects
Parabens are used in conventionally produced bath and beauty products as a preservative to extend the shelf life of products. Parabens, however, are synthetic and mimic your body’s natural hormones. Many people worry that this can alter the functions of your body’s endocrine system. Artificial ingredients like parabens may help a product do one thing well, but there could be possible side effects that are still being uncovered. Natural products use natural preservatives that won’t affect your body. And while some people have allergies to a few natural ingredients (lanolin, which comes from wool, is an allergen for some) the effects are much more understood than the ones from synthetic ingredients.
Gentler over time
Many natural products work better than their conventional counterparts because they don’t contain unnecessary fillers or irritants. And while some unnatural products may seem to work better with the first use, over the long-term, the harmful chemicals that made your skin feel cleaner or your hair feel smoother may actually cause damage.
Changing just a little bit of your daily beauty routine can make a huge difference in the rest of your life. Start small by choosing one product that is natural and handmade. Something like a bar of soap from Shmutzies will help preserve your skin and your peace of mind.
