3 Best affordable natural makeup brands
You and I, we all use makeup. Some of us use makeup every day, others once in a while. Makeup makes you express yourself, it gives you more confidence. But, have you ever had a strange redness after you have just removed the makeup from your face? Or maybe your kid did get red cheeks after removing the blush after a makeup party with friends. Well, after all, we all want to look and to be attractive. We keep discovering new colors and shades to make our day beautiful. Some people say beauty comes from inside, but that’s a different topic.
Are the most common brands out there safe?
Have you ever wondered what’s in all these nice colors, smells and textures you and me put daily on our faces? Well, I notice that there are more and more people including myself who do care what they rub into their skin every day. The skin is the largest organ of the human body after all. So, how do you think, are the most common brands out there safe? In my opinion, some of them are no harm if you use them once in a while as a backup. But if you use them every day? Have you ever read the ingredients list and tried to figure out what is what? I did and I must tell you I was not amused. I am talking about the brands available at the beauty shops and drug stores. And these are not cheap at all.
Should we give up using makeup?
The answer is “Yes” and “No”.
There is so much information on harmful ingredients in makeup. Goodies such as Parabens, Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), Polyethylene/PEGs, dibutyl phthalate, toluene and formaldehyde in nail polish, petroleum/paraffin, formaldehyde seem to be real baddies. These chemicals can have very nasty side effects as skin irritation, allergies or even more serious conditions.
So, yes, you will be better off if you stop using makeup which contains harmful chemicals.
At the same time, it is not necessary to give up using makeup. There are enough toxic free natural makeup brands available for any budget.
What you don’t put in your mouth you don’t put on your skin either
In the past, people did use ingredients they got from nature to make their faces look more beautiful. Cosmetics exists already for some 7000 years and it is only in the recent years that the cosmetic industry has developed into a chemical laboratory. In a sense that comes because they try to solve almost every beauty related issue. But, also because chemicals are often much cheaper alternative of the natural ingredients. But, you could still perfectly use coconut oil as your day cream, as lip balm and as a conditioner. The argan oil is famous for its qualities as daily facial care too. There are so many natural products you could use as your beauty product. But, this is a topic I will discuss in another blog article.
When a new season or holidays and festivities are coming, you are looking for a new look. Some new color or a new brand of nail polish, or lipstick or something else will do you good. Just try a natural makeup brand this time.
Non-toxic natural makeup brands.
