We look after our inside by eating organic and avoiding harmful ingredients. At the same time, it’s important that we look after our outside. The skin is the biggest organ of the body, and it’s right there, on the outside, exposed to all. Everything we put on to our skin is absorbed into the body and into the bloodstream. This can lead to all kinds of health issues.

Naturally derived ingredients can be beneficial for the skin. You can avoid acne and dry skin and you can have a healthy complexion, and not have to worry about your body absorbing toxins.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of natural make-up.

no harmful chemicals

Natural make-up products are made using naturally derived ingredients. Many ingredients come from natural plant and flower extracts. They also contain natural nutrients that nourish the skin. Natural cosmetics are hypo-allergenic. Therefore, there is no risk of having a bad reaction, and they’re great if you suffer from skin conditions such as acne, dry skin and dermatitis. Below are some of the popular natural exrtact oils used in natural cosmetics.

These oils contain antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin repairing properties.


eco-friendly

You will find that natural make-up products are environmentally friendly. General make-up brands use harsh substances such as aluminum, lead and petroleum based ingredients. These require extensive mining, often in endangered areas of the world, such as the Amazon rainforest.

Another benefit is that products made from natural ingredients are not tested on animals. There is no need to test natural ingredients as they are already known to be safe for humans.


nutrients

Natural make-up products contain nutrients, many of which can be very beneficial for the skin. Ingredients such as vitamin E, coconut oil, cocoa butter and witch hazel all have beneficial nourishing properties for the skin. Cocoa butter for instance contains essential fatty acids that makes the skin smoother and appear more youthful. These natural products often contain antioxidants such as vitamin C, extracts of pomegranate seeds, grapes and white tea. Antioxidants help fight the early signs of aging, and keep the skin healthy.


protection from premature aging

Many natural make-up products are rich in minerals. Minerals can provide a certain level of uv protection. Uv damage ages the skin and can dry it out. Many products will contain vitamin C. Vitamin C when applied to the skin not only provides a certain level of uv protection, it also provides anti-aging properties. You will find vitamin C in many face moisturisers due to its proven anti-aging properties.
