Article in brief: The author talks about the importance and impacts of utilizing organic makeup.
What’s not to love about organic makeup? Nothing beats that guilt-free feeling of wearing quality-based products. Let’s face it, most women apply makeup on a daily basis; that’s 365 days worth of products applied on average. Unlike other branches in the makeup industry that depend on chemically-induced products, natural makeup sheds light on the ingredients that affect the overall wellbeing of your skin.
While the benefits of organic makeup are endless, generally it is not as long-lasting as your mainstream, chemically-endorsed makeup. Products like Josie Maran’s “Argan Color Sticks” are uber portable and provide a beautiful natural look. Its advantages outweigh its ephemeral disadvantage as it makes a great multitasking product that can be used as a lipstick, blush and eye shadow, which is always a plus! It leaves your skin with ultra-hydrating features like Vitamin E and essential fatty acids that have great anti-aging properties.
The crème de la crème benefit of utilizing natural makeup is that it enables your skin to breathe. It grants you the pure pleasure of working on a flawless canvas, which in return gives you the freedom of accentuating your features without worrying about the consequences.
Rest assured that organic makeup brands such as Lush Cosmetics and Josie Maran Cosmetics are against animal testing which is a major plus for animal lovers. Also, they are environmentally friendly and concentrate on recycling and reusing the product packaging, which is a win-win situation both for us consumers and mother Earth. Lush stores are commonly found in the Emirates while Josie Maran products are currently available at the well-known local based website www.souq.com.
Our eyes are the windows to our soul and tainting our “soul” with chemical products may lead to negative effects in the long run. That being said, natural makeup brands are more forgiving on this sensitive area that is already being exposed to harmful UV rays and pollution. The creamy eye shadows sold at Lush cosmetics provide a dewy finish, and they come in various colors that compliment different eye and skin colors (i).
If the idea of organic makeup does not intrigue you, then an organic makeup remover that cleans your skin and doubles as a moisturizer might. Many women may agree that the worst part of wearing makeup is removing it, especially when it’s on the eyes. One of the most common and effective makeup removers could be found in your pantry. Coconut oil is great example of a natural makeup remover because it removes waterproof makeup and conditions the eyelashes and eyebrows, as well as the skin (ii).
Personally, I have seen a major difference in the appearance and texture of my skin after using natural makeup for some time. My skin has become far more radiant and even accepting of the idea of wearing makeup regularly. The gratification of knowing that the products I’m using are doing more good than harm leaves me with an exceptional feeling. Think of it this way: using natural makeup that is multifunctional would do wonders for your skin, especially for women on the go, because it’s efficient and takes up less space!
