"It's nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you.” - Victoria Justice

In the hustle-bustle of daily life, we get mentally stressed and physically caught by the dirt and dust. Both, mental and physical exertion make our skin dull and distressing day by day. So, we get accustomed to a lot of beauty products to make our skin radiant and charismatic. We opine these beauty products are the only solutions as we are not aware of the alternatives – the natural beauty products. Or maybe that the alternatives are time-consuming. Yes, natural remedies are time-dependent, yet quite effective!

The market beauty products stand nowhere as compared to the homemade natural beauty products. Natural remedies are the most effective ones and history says this. We have witnessed the power of Ayurveda. The market bought products have a lot of side effects attached to them apart from their attractive look and odour. They do more harm to the skin. We live in an illusion of its positive side until we become aware of it.

One of the common chemicals found in any beauty product is Paraben which is often used as a preservative in all beauty products, be it deodorants, moisturiser, shampoo or cosmetics. Due to its carcinogenic nature, it increases the chance of breast cancer.

There are also certain chemicals which cause serious health issues:

  • Ethanolamine contains impurities like nitrosamines usually found in soaps, shampoo, hair conditioner, eyeliner, sunscreen. Due to its toxic nature, it causes respiratory, skin and organ cancer.
  • A chemical named Triclosan found in antibacterial soaps is mostly the cause of skin irritation and infection.
  • Steroids are mostly found in fairness cream that is mainly responsible for skin damage, colour alteration and acne.

When we humans are blessed with abundant natural things to take care of our beauty, why should we go for the unnatural ones? It’s high time we avoid using these artificial beauty products and opt for possible organic and homemade natural beauty products which cater to the needs of skin for a permanent term. Let’s have a look at some of the homemade DIY natural beauty products that will add glamour to your skin and give you a refreshing look:
