Truth About Beauty Products and How to Get Around it
So you go to the store, browse through the beauty products lined up there and pick one up by the big name company being advertised heavily all over. You start using it with hopes of rejuvenating your skin and getting its lost health and vigor back. But what do you really get? Another disappointment.
This is the sad truth about most beauty products out there. It’s really difficult to find good skin creams and lotions that actually deliver on their promise of a beautiful skin.
Why is it so? Here are the facts.
You need to understand one thing about these big companies – their bottom line is what matters to them most; producing high quality products and benefiting the end customer comes much lower on their list of priorities.
This is why they use inferior ingredients like Parabens, Mineral Oil and Fragrances in their products.
Parabens are used as effective preservatives in these products. Fact is – they can lead to serious health problems like Cancer in the long run. This is the reason the European Union has banned their use in cosmetics products. But they still continue to be used in the US because of a lack of similar regulations.
Mineral Oil is also a chemical and is derived during the process of gasoline distillation. Although it is used as a moisturizing agent, the irony is – this oil actually makes the skin even drier than before its use. Long term, its usage will make your skin rough, dry and prone to damage.
Fragrances are added to beauty products to make them more appealing. What is also true is – they are also chemicals and can lead to skin allergies and irritation.
Now that you know this, you can see why most skin creams do not benefit your skin at all.
A simple answer to these chemicals is to instead use only natural substances on your skin. Now, don’t worry, I’m not asking you to go out and start hunting for difficult to find natural substances all over the place.
There are some ethical companies out there that care for their customers and produce only high quality products containing natural ingredients only. Using such beauty products is a very simple way of avoiding all the side effects of chemical based creams and keeping your skin naturally healthy and beautiful.
