It’s easy being beautiful without the risks involved in traditional beauty products. With many commercial skincare and beauty products containing artificial chemicals, home made beauty products can have the same results without the impact. Since commercial beauty products are not required to to list their ingredients, many users have no clue about the dangerous chemicals used in the product. Pthalates, formaldehyde, parabens and other chemicals are often found in commercial beauty products, all of which have been linked to long term health effects.
Many recipes can be found online for natural skin, hair and nail care. All of which are created using natural ingredients that are safe and healthy to use.
