It seems that more and more people are changing to natural makeup and skincare products. There seems to be a common denominator in it all - to look after health better. Yes, more and more women are realising that conventional makeup is no way natural. Also now the choices for buying natural makeup products are more and more and the quality of natural makeup products are better and better.
Think about this: It takes 28 seconds for a chemical to enter the blood stream after it touches the skin. If you read the back of any shampoo or cosmetic bottle, you'll discover every product includes something dangerous: mercury, lead acetate, coal-tar, petroleum derivatives, parabens, dyes and phthalates, known carcinogens and hormone disrupters.
For those who live in the U.S. it's even more alarming because many of these ingredients are banned in Europe, $35 billion U.S. cosmetics industry hums along with little to no interference from federal safety regulators. So look for procuts that are certified.
Many women who have been treated for hormonal cancers make the change to natural makeup. For example a woman in the US successfully completed treatment for stage 1 breast cancer two years ago. Then she and her sister-in-law started to replace the cosmetics in their makeup bags with healthy, chemical-free alternatives.
She said that: "I was 39 when I was diagnosed, there was no family history or genetic component," Shapiro said. "Which makes you stop and look around at environmental factors. Also, our daughters love to play with makeup, too," said the women, who has 6- and 3-year-old girls. "Ironically, children's lip glosses and other things are probably the worst offenders. They're loaded with all kinds of chemicals, parabens and preservatives."
What's more the shelf life for natural makeup and skincare products is comparable to traditional cosmetics: three months to one year, once the package is open.
So don't leave it to late. Now is the time to take your health into your own hands. The site PureNaturalMakeup.com has some excellent articles on natural makeup discussing the benefits. Why not pay it a visit, you will be suprised to find out just what is in makeup and how making the change could benefit you.
