Transitioning to a Natural Beauty Regimen: What You Need to Know

Your skin is the largest organ on your body, so it's essential that you care for your skin with the right products. The truth is, a number of conventional cosmetics don't do much to improve your skin's health. Some of these products even have harmful chemicals that can damage your skin. Making the switch to natural serums, moisturizers and cleansers can improve both the look and health of your skin. 

For some people, transitioning to all natural products can be a challenge. The amount of natural product choices can be overwhelming; so companies like Toronto's Consonant Skincare assist customers who want to live a more natural lifestyle. This is especially helpful for people want to use chemical-free products because of health concerns or those who want to protect the environment.

Becoming "all natural" when it comes to beauty products can be a bit confusing. This is because the personal care industry is not heavily regulated, which means some ingredient labels can be misleading. Last year in the United States, The Federal Trade Commission exposed several companies that claimed to have all natural products. However, the products contained synthetic chemicals. Canada's regulations are deemed a bit stricter, but it can still be tricky to find products that are completely chemical-free.

Another challenge with a natural beauty regimen is that it can be expensive. Starting over with all new skin care products can be a daunting task. However, it's not necessary to throw away all your old products and replace them all at one time. Start with the most essential products and then phase the rest of the products out when you can.

People are also concerned that natural products are not effective enough. If you've tried to use chemical-free products before and notice that your skin doesn't look especially bright and moisturized, you're not alone. There are still some less-than-average natural products out there, but the chemical-free cosmetics industry has made significant progress over the last decade. For example, HydrExtreme from Consonant Skincare is helpful for women who are suffering from dry skin due to breast cancer treatment. The profit was even awarded the Grand Prize at the Canadian Beauty Innovation Awards. Other natural products, like Eugenia Shea’s 95% organic shea butter, are also ideal for hydrating the skin and getting rid of blemishes and stretch marks. For best results, use a high quality shea butter made from only organic ingredients.

To effective switch to natural cosmetics and skin care products, educate yourself on what "natural" actually means, and be aware of the toxins that are often in conventional products. Look out for preservatives, BHA and parabens.

It's also a good idea to look through the ingredient list on some of your favorite beauty products and determine which substances you want to get rid of. That way, you'll know which types of natural products to look for. Be sure to test a variety of affordable products first to find out what works for you so you can improve your health while staying within budget.
