Switching to an all-natural chap-stick is no big deal. Â Going organic with shampoo and conditioner? No sweat. Even changing up your daily moisturizer for something Â like Reviva Labs, Organic Antioxidant & Texturizing Day Cream with Alpha Lipoic Acid 2 oz is hardly a challenge (after all, itâ€™s perfect for smoothing away dry and listless skin).
But what about going ALL natural. Everything. The whole kit and kaboodle. Weâ€™re talking more than just chap-stick and a little facial cream.
If the idea of making the switch to all-natural beauty products makes you weak in the knees, then youâ€™re not alone. Giving up old standby products in favor of all-natural products can be scary. What if the all-natural products arenâ€™t really effective? What if they make me smell weird? Who really cares if my regular beauty products arenâ€™t all-natural?
Hereâ€™s why switching to all-natural beauty products is worth it:
- What is put on the outside affects the inside. The average womanâ€™s skin will absorb 30 lbs of ingredients contained in moisturizers over 60 years. The average woman will also consume the equivalent of 1-4 tubes of lipstick throughout her lifetime. Unfortunately, these products are not good for the inside (or outside) of a personâ€™s body, because...
- ...most regular cosmetics and beauty products are chock-full of chemicals. Chemicals that clog your pores and have been linked to cancer. Many people suffer from skin problems that are aggravated by the very products that they use to cover and treat their condition. Acne and chronic dry skin can be the result of chemicals in beauty products.
