Mirror…Mirror on the Wall - Who's Good Looking of the all!
We are all well-versed with this phrase and we all want to look and feel beautiful all the time. Every time we look into the mirror, we see some or the other flaws, may it be our hair or skin or our body. Sometimes, we get so carried away to put our best face forward, that we apply anything or everything that comes to our reach, without realizing the adverse effects it could have on our skins.
Today, the market is flooded with different types of cosmetics and beauty products – most of them are loaded with harmful chemicals. Some products that claim to be organic and natural, may have a very small percentage of natural ingredients or have hidden synthetic materials. Our skin being the largest organ in our body, absorbs whatever we apply and enter our body through blood-stream. Sometimes, these chemicals are so harsh that the effects are almost irreversible. So, what are the options? Fret not! - Go for Natural and Handmade products.
Nature has given us these ingredients that are available in abundance all around us. For example, Aloe Vera – it soothes sun-burns; Shea-butter – a natural moisturizer without any side-effects that protects the skin from chapping and dryness. As a mater of fact, most of the handmade and homemade beauty products also include Macadamia oils, Lavender oils, Zinc-Oxide, Rosemary oil, Rosewater to name a few.
Besides women, men are conscious too about grooming. Be it hair, beard or body, these organic and homemade products are suitable for men as well.
So next time when you’re browsing through the beauty products online, read what’s included in the product and try to ‘read between the lines’ a little, to avoid the products of suspicious ingredients lurking behind. Every time you look into the mirror, you would get a much younger, flawless, fresher and better version of YOU.
Will you now be more conscious
when buying a mass-produced and branded product or the natural and organic ones, next time?
