Beware of chemical products and why should we use natural products?

Harmful Effects of Chemicals : Most modern-day food, health & beauty products are made with different types of chemicals that besides being harmful also have a negative environmental impact. These chemicals ultimately get into the air, water and even go down the drain in homes. Moreover, many health and beauty products contain synthetic preservatives such as parabens so that their shelf life increases. The harmful effects of these preservatives are that your body cannot process them in the same way that natural hormones do. They also have adverse effects in the way the body functions. The possible side-effects are rashes, nausea, headaches etc. On the other hand if natural products are farmed and manufactured organically, there would be almost no reliance on chemicals and no chemicals would be put in the air and water.

Harmful Effects on Skin : Chemicals, artificial colours and fillers used in skin care products and makeup are most harmful as they can cause irritation, redness and breakouts. Moreover some chemicals that are commonly used in these products do not suit many people who may be allergic to them whereas natural products work with the skin and not against it.

Harmful Effects on the Nose : Most modern-day products try to cover up the smell of chemicals by adding artificial fragrances with the result that the chemicals of the fragrances cover up the other chemicals and both of them combine to cause headaches to the users. However, natural products give out the smell of natural ingredients and not chemicals and even provide aromatherapy as they are scented with natural essential oils. Moreover, natural products work better because they don’t contain unnecessary fillers or irritants as against the unnatural products that could appear to work better and make your skin feel cleaner at first but over the long-term the chemicals cause immense damage.

Natural health and beauty products are rich in vitamins and minerals that are essential for your body. In the case of skin care natural products, as Vitamin E is essential to nourish the skin and to get absorbed easily, Argan Oil is used which contains plenty of it. The discomfort of dry skin and digestive issues gets easily resolved with Chamomile and oatmeal, which are natural ingredients whereas artificial products can cause more damage.

Benefits of Natural Products : The process of evolution gave humans more powers of analytical thinking and creativity and they started discovering and making new products to make their life easier. Whereas most of their discoveries and inventions gave them the ease of travel, communication, medicines and leisure options, they started neglecting nature with the result that they became entirely dependent on artificial products in different aspects of life, whether in the areas of food, beauty, skin care or medicine. The switch to urban life and the mad race to survive in this highly competitive world made it even more difficult for most people to think beyond the artificial consumer products that are readily available. This metamorphosis in the lives of people has had a catastrophic effect on their health and well-being despite the giant strides taken by them in the medical field.

Cheap and Easily Available Natural Products : Lastly, many natural products are readily available and are reasonably priced. For example, Epsom Salt is a natural mineral that includes magnesium and sulphate and has the property of cleaning and exfoliating the skin, removing excess oil from your hair and easing the tensions of your day through a relaxing bath. It also eases the pain of minor sprains.Witch hazel, a low-cost natural product, is ideal for skin as it can be used as a toner and brings fresh fragrance and cool sensation to the skin. To ease anxiety and stress, Chamomile and black cohosh are best as they also ease hot flashes and other effects of menopause.
