People want to have a radiating, healthy complexion that shines with vitality and they use a variety of skincare products to achieve this. With the rise in the use of face care and cosmetics, people are now  re-discovering the benefits of plant-based ingredients that their ancestors used for thousands of years, according to Medical News Today.

But did you know many popular cosmetic products contain harmful, synthetic ingredients that damage your skin? Mother Nature provides natural skincare nutrients that can be used as ingredients to heal, nourish, and transform your skin without a chemical in sight! 

It’s time to skip those harmful cosmetics and treat yourself to treatments from the earth. Here are some insights into toxin-free beauty products and natural ingredients that help you glow from the inside out.

Toxin-Free Beauty

Have you ever taken a look at the ingredients in your cosmetic bag? Often, popular brands use harmful chemicals in their ‘best-selling’ products, according to research in Environmental Health Perspectives. Toxic synthetic chemicals get absorbed through the skin, and regular use of these products could lead to health problems. 

As you begin to follow a non-toxic approach to skincare, some key ingredients to steer clear of include formaldehyde, quaternium-15, parabens, and sodium laureth sulfate, according to WebMD. Your skin deserves better than that!

Luckily, many green beauty products are taking a natural approach, using only healthy ingredients in their formulas. Just make sure to check the label on your go-to skincare products and avoid formulas with harmful ingredients. Instead, opt for green beauty brands or DIY homemade remedies as a natural alternative
