Our skin absorbs just about everything that touches it. This is why it is important to be mindful of the ingredients of our skincare and beauty products. And nothing beats all-natural, organic, and nutrient-rich cosmetics.
The majority of working women use foundations on a daily, some wearing them for close to 10 to 12 hours, and if you are someone who pays more attention to what is your foundation’s finish or coverage instead of its ingredients, you might be causing your skin serious damage.
Despite boosting our confidence and improving our physical look, some makeup products contain dangerous and toxic chemicals. According to David Suzuki Foundation, one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors.
If you are concern about your skin’s health in the long run, you might consider changing brands and opting for more healthy alternatives. The good news is more and more brands are incorporating organic and natural ingredients in their cosmetic products instead of harmful chemicals. With this, wearing makeup every day might not be as guilt-tripping as it usually is, knowing that your skin is absorbing nutrient-rich formula.
A good number of women in the world have made the shift, and you should too! Here are 10 organic foundations that you should try.
