Today Blog post is inspired by questions I have been getting since I started my journey of encouraging people to stop putting toxins on their skin, it’s been a task especially when I talk about Make-up. So
Things like facial cleansers and masks people are buying natural and organic kind, and this is very good, the only challenge now, is to convince people that they have to do the same when it comes to Make up. So today we are going to look at the benefits of using Natural products on your skin.
My Little Embarrassing Elbow Story
Number one reason why Natural products are better than the regular refined and synthetic ones. Let me tell you a little story about me, for the past few years, I have been spending lots of money buying creams to fix a problem I have had for a while. Its abit embarrassing but I will share it anyway, my elbows have been very rough and dry ever since I can remember.
So I had been trying all kinds of creams and lotions for dry skin, I would apply, and my elbows would look good as long as the cream is present, but once the cream is gone, I am back to where I started. I got really frustrated, then one day I read an article about DIY skin creams, and in that
This is my DIY Cream
And I have only been using it for
Reason Number Two- Safety, if you use Natural products, you know you are safe and you are not going to damage your skin in any way, I mean think of something like Olive Oil, it doesn’t get any safer than that.
Reason number three why Natural products are better than the regular
the natural oils are designed to nourish your skin, so they are not designed to just look and smell good, they are supposed to nourish and repair your skin, the big brands are so concerned about
To be quite honest with you, I would rather smell like salad by using Olive oils on my skin, than smell nice yet the cream I have used is doing little to nothing to hydrate and nourish my skin. Of course, you don’t have to smell like salad because, these days we have many Natural and organic brands that are manufacturing products that smell heavenly and are great for your skin.
Reason Number Four. Healing and repair properties, l honestly don’t know why we don’t want to take advantage of all the things mother nature has provided us with, like aloe Vera, which has healing and soothing properties, that if your skin is irritated in any way, applying some Aloe Vera reach cream or gel, will sooth the skin and make you feel Better.
I am not saying that all natural products are good, because I know there are people out there who are perhaps allergic to some oils or bee products or
Reason Number 5- Anti Aging properties in natural oils, OK so maybe I should have put this as number one because we all know how much money people and especially women are spending on Anti aging procedures and treatments, I even made a post a while back about the Snake Venom cream that is selling like hot cakes because the Makers of the cream claim that the results you get by using the cream, are better than doing Botox. That stuff is very popular in HollyWood.
Instead of smearing your self with snake venom, I think its better you cleanse your skin with a product that contains Chamomile, how about you apply a face cream that contains things like olive oil Grapeseed oil coconut oil, or Sesame oil and Coco butter on your skin?, take some vitamin C and E, take
Let’s Talk Make Up
Now I am going to touch a little bit on Make-up, this seems to be a sore subject, because when I try to talk about natural makeup, I seem to be getting some resistance, but I will say this, Our faces are like our front desks, this is where someone firsts look when they meet you (at least I hope that’s where they are looking lol) your Face consists of your
and of course your nose and cheeks( OK I know you already know that lol)
My point is, your eyes if you are a woman, and even some men, you will be applying eyeliner, mascara
Then as I said in my previous post about lipstick, we need to think twice when purchasing a tube of lipstick because some of it will end up in your stomach and your partner’s stomach through kissing. l will not go into so many details about lipstick because l already covered this
Those are my thoughts about why we should use Natural skin care and Make Up products. I would like for
before I close this post, let me mention some oils that are really beneficial to the skin

- Evening Primrose oil
