Organic Haircare: There’s a growing movement all over the world, including the UK that seeks to use natural and minimally processed ingredients in cosmetics. The wisdom is that if natural foods can benefit the body, natural organic cosmetics can do so as well. Here’s some information about natural make up and its benefits.
Why Use Natural Cosmetics?
There are so many benefits associated with using natural skin care cosmetics that it would be difficult to list them all. Natural products are great for sensitive skin and won’t cause roughness, redness or breakouts. One of the most important qualities of organic make up is that it’s not comedogenic, meaning that it will not clog pores. If you have allergies, natural organic cosmetic products are less likely to cause reactions like hives or itching.
More Benefits of Natural and Organic Cosmetics
Because they’re made without dyes, fragrances and synthetic chemicals, natural cosmetics are virtually harmless to the skin. They also may contain ingredients that draw and bind water to the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Natural makeup is easy to apply and lasts much longer than commercial products.
A Popular Option in Natural & Organic Cosmetics
One of the most popular trends in natural cosmetics is mineral makeup. These are pure, loose powders in various tints for foundation, blush, eye shadow and eyeliner that you apply using a brush. Although mineral makeup may seem more expensive, it’s important to note that it’s highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. This makeup is also very versatile and multi-functional. Eye shadow can be used as liner, for example. Foundation and blush can be mixed together for a sun-kissed glow.
How to Apply Mineral Makeup
Mineral makeup usually comes in a wide, flat jar with a screw-on top. To use these healthy and organic products, tap or sift a tiny amount of foundation into the jar lid. Take your largest brush and swirl it into the makeup with a circular motion. Tap the handle of the brush on the edge of the container to remove any excess. Then buff the makeup onto all over the face in broad, circular strokes. Using a separate large brush, repeat the process with mineral blush, applying it on cheeks, temples, chin and jaw line. Buff on mineral eye shadow with horizontal strokes. All that’s needed is a touch of lipstick and mascara to finish this polished and natural look.
