Whether you were already concerned about chemicals or not, it may be useful to research and know what you are putting on your skin. Many drugstore brands may contain toxic chemicals. Often this is overlooked, but it is worth considering when shopping for your makeup. It has been said that your skin absorbs many of those toxins, resulting in potential premature aging as well as possible health risks. Have you ever wondered what ingredients set all-natural makeup apart from drugstore makeup? Which all-natural makeup is your best fit? Will the results be comparable? Here are some helpful tips to consider when shopping for a brand of all-natural makeup:
Many natural and organic products have been said to be good for your skin and often prevent aging when used correctly and consistently. Many of these makeups use healthy fats that nourish the skin and body as a base. Natural colorants from plants are used in place of artificial dyes, ensuring the most naturally beautiful colors, whether it’s for foundation, blush, lipstick, eyeshadow, or mascara.
Mineral based makeups have been receiving glowing reviews for years. They are most often vegan, hypoallergenic, talc free, gluten free, and paraben free. These products are often supplemented with antioxidants, as well as other naturally soothing ingredients. This type of makeup can be both liquid and powder, making it easy to achieve the best look for every skin type. As far as foundations and concealers go, people with oily skin tend to stick to powders, while people with dry skin will more likely find success in liquids. It is important to sample different forms of natural makeup to find the best individual fit.
Even if you do not choose an all-natural makeup brand, avoid these ingredients when looking for a new makeup brand: parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, DEA, MEA, TEA, propylene glycol and Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate.1
