The makeup industry is seeing a big shakeup as more consumers become conscious of the products and chemicals, they are putting on their face and body. Increased awareness about the environmental and animal rights impact that products have on the world are leading to more ethical consumption.
Therefore, there is no less of an excuse than ever to make sure that you are putting the healthiest and best products on to your body. Sure, there are still plenty of products with bad chemicals and ingredients, but alternatives are aplenty.
Organic and natural makeup companies are in the hundreds, and new brands pop up every day promising healthier and more ethically produced products. So, it can still be difficult to decide which products to go for.
Here are some general tips and tricks that can lead to a healthier relationship between makeup and your body.
Skincare is one of the most important makeup/self-care segments, and nearly everyone pays attention to keeping their skin healthy. There are more products than ever that promise healthier skin and the choice can at times be overwhelming, but it is important to keep some rules in mind.
The European Union has some of the strictest rules when it comes to chemicals, but if you are not lucky enough to live in a country with such strict regulations, the list is available online.
Staying away from these chemicals and relying more on natural products is of great importance, especially when it comes to skincare. Keeping it simple can go a long way to increase your long-term skin health.
Lorena Reyes from aboutwomen.com.au remarked, “natural products are a great way to go especially for your face. Going natural can really help you improve longevity when it comes to skin, and it fights against unwanted wrinkles and marks.”
Coconut oils are one of the most popular options for natural skincare, and these oils can also be used in hair care. It is high in lauric acid and other vitamins that increase your skin and hair’s health.
Shampoos and Haircare
Haircare is another important area for natural and organic products as many people are growing wise to putting undue amounts of chemicals in their hair.
A quality restorative shampoo can bring natural vitamins that traditional shampoos strip away. Restorative shampoos can thicken your hair and help you wean yourself off shampoo, a product most people use too often. If you are using a low-quality shampoo then not only are you removing necessary vitamins and natural oils from your hair, but you also increase the likelihood of getting split ends and other unfortunate side effects.
Investing in a higher quality brush can also increase your hair’s health and improve the natural wave of your hair.
When it comes to makeup and beauty products, there are a lot of low-quality products that put unnecessary stress on your body. But more big companies are learning that the demand for health beauty products is increasing.
There are a variety of apps available on the App Store and Google Play store that educates you on what is and what isn’t good for your body. Think Dirty has a wealth of information available to you that can point to healthier and safer beauty products.
