6 reasons why natural beauty products are better for you

by Cathi Graham | Posted in:

Do you already use natural beauty products? We all use a variety of beauty products on a daily basis. Have you ever looked at the ingredient lists written in tiny print on the back of some of your beauty products? Most products are full of ingredients that you’ve probably never heard of. Chances are, if you don’t recognize the name of the ingredient it is a chemical that could potentially be harmful if you continue to use it.

Beauty products that may contain toxins and reasons why natural beauty products are better alternatives:

1. Traditional shampoos contain toxins, natural hair products nourish your hair

Check the labels on your hair products. Look for ingredients like cocamide diethanolamine or cocamide DEA that is a cancer-causing chemical found in lots beauty products on the market. There are plenty of hair care alternatives that use ingredients from nature instead of a long ingredient list full of words that you can’t pronounce.

2. Non-natural face washes can be toxic for your internal organs

Face wash that you find in most grocery and drug stores are full of toxic ingredients. The face products made specifically for the treatment of acne often includes salicylic acid, potassium sorbate and propylene glycol. These ingredients can be more harmful to your skin than helpful. Propylene glycol is not only irritating to your skin and eyes it is toxic for your internal organs. When propylene glycol is present in your beauty products it also causes you to absorb more of the other chemicals in the product. However; there are some really great natural face cleansers available. We even sell a great natural face cleanser called OxyLift Clean on our website.

3. Chemical free makeup and natural beauty products nourish your skin

Makeup is applied directly to your skin every day, and your skin just soaks in all of the ingredients. Whether those ingredients you apply to your skin are toxic or not is up to you. Make sure you know what you are putting on your skin, and choose to use natural beauty products with ingredients that you actually want your skin to absorb. Beauty products that contain all natural ingredients are full of health benefits that not only make your skin glow, but are actually good for you and make you feel good.

4. Natural beauty products contain anti-aging ingredients

Many of the anti-aging skin treatments available are full of artificial ingredients. People are willing to use these products because they desire the anti-aging benefits, but there is actually a better alternative. There are plants and minerals that are found in nature that have natural anti-aging properties. These natural skincare ingredients can be used in anti-aging beauty products instead of the harmful chemicals, and they result in the same results! OxyLift only uses natural ingredients in our anti-aging beauty products.

5. Regular toothpaste contains some of the same ingredients as rat poison!

Especially since you are bound to swallow some toothpaste while brushing you should look at the ingredients in your toothpaste. Some toothpastes contain Sodium Fluoride that is also the main ingredient in rat poison! Don’t worry, there are natural toothpaste options available from companies like Tom’s of Maine or JĀSÖN®. You can also make your own natural toothpaste with three simple ingredients: baking soda, salt and essential oils.

6. Deodorant could be the most damaging of all the beauty products

Antiperspirant has been labeled as a possible cause for breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. It might keep you from sweating, but the way it does that is by clogging your pores and preventing you from releasing sweat. Sweating is the body’s natural way of getting rid of toxins. If you prevent your body from sweating you are basically forcing the toxins to stay within your body. There are a lot of non-toxic deodorant options available or you could make your own natural deodorant.

Now that you know what to look for, check out the labels on your beauty products and seriously consider getting rid of the products that contain harmful chemicals. When you switch to all natural beauty products you can truly enjoy their benefits without worrying about them being harmful to your skin or your body.
