The sad truth is that a lot of makeup is chocked full of nasty chemicals that don’t need to be anywhere near our face. In fact, some brands have things like Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Synthetic colours in them. All of which can have nasty and severe effects on the health of the wearer! What this means is avoiding makeup use, or at least minimising it can go a long way to helping us steer clear of such chemicals and the harm they cause. A topic you can get some help within the post below. Read on to find out more.
Start with great skin
First of all, if you want to look your best without having to slather on the makeup, you need to have great skin. Happily, there are all sorts of things you can do and treatments you can use to improve the quality of your skin and make sure you look as radiant as possible sans makeup!
One is to make sure that you have an effective skincare routine that you stick to. Of course, the idea here is that you use natural products wherever possible to clean and treat your skin. After all, the nasty chemicals aren’t confined to makeup but can be found in beauty products as well!
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to make your own facial beauty products, something that enables you to know exactly what goes into them! In fact, you can even follow my tutorial for this refreshing Witch Hazel, Aloe and Rosewater Facial Spray here.
They say that nothing is more beautiful than someone that is smiling. Of course, this is something that we can take advantage because you can smile whether you are wearing makeup or not and still look great. There is even lots of advice all over the internet about how to smile in the right way!
Sadly, for those that aren’t 100% happy with their teeth, giving a great big grin to enhance their beauty can be problematic. After all, they just won’t feel their best if they are worried people are judging their teeth.
Luckily, there is a solution for this, and it’s to go to a Cosmetic Dentist and get invisible braces. Then you can have the best smile, and boost your beauty without having to resort to makeup and be exposed to the chemicals within them.
Look for makeup brands without harmful ingredients.
Of course, if you really can’t do without a bit of lippy, or a lick of mascara, I do understand. In fact, there is a way that you can get around the problems of harmful chemical and still wear makeup from time to time.
One tactic is to find cosmetics that are made entirely from organic and natural ingredients. It can also help to know what chemicals to look out for when buying makeup. Although, if you are feeling crafty, you may even want to have a go at making your own from plant materials, you can grow in your garden!
