Why Being Natural Will Make You Beautiful!

Hello everyone. The next article is about how using natural products on your skin, especially your face, is waaayyyyyy better for you than using horrible chemically crap. I’ve got my friend Rachael to write this article for you as she had a lot of pent up anger and venom towards the huge manufacturers of these products. She’s been my friend for years and Rach used to suffer with very bad skin and has probably used every single product in Boots trying to sort it out. I even recall a period where she was given medication by the doctor for it, but nothing really helped.
Rachael then did some reading up on what was actually in these lotions and potions that promise you glowing, blemish free skin. After finding out about all the chemicals, she decided to go natural (well done her) and switched all her products to environmentally friendly, chemical-free new ones. Rach now has perfect skin and wants to spread the word, so no one else will spend all their money on pointless products that don’t work.

Finally, before you read her article, I’d just like to mention that I am a trained beauty therapist and have an NVQ on looking after your skin. I can assure you that what Rachael has written is 100% correct and we’re not just blurting out opinion but giving you researched and valid knowledge. Read on and learn!

Down With Chemicals

 A word of advice for everybody
I’ve been cursed with awful skin since forever. I panicked when I got a bad breakout, coated myself with makeup and scrubbed away at my skin in a devastating ritual that made the acne so much worse. All of my self- medicating encouraged by magazines and beauty campaigns emptied my pockets and destroyed my skin. Don’t listen to these money grabbing companies! I’m the real trial and error. I’ve come out the other side of my skin woes with some valuable wisdom, and finally, good skin.

The first thing you need to do is accept that big beauty companies tell lies! Like me you’ve probably spent hundreds on cleansers, creams, exfoliates, masks, pills and gels all promising you the clear and beautiful skin of the model on the advert. As long as you keep buying their mysterious potions that is......
These famous products that pretend to be friendly brands-e.g. Clearasil, Clean & Clear and Neutrogena, essentially work by drying out your skin, therefore stopping dirt sticking to your pores and infecting them. However your skin knows better and it starts to over produce oil in a confused panic. 

 SO what you’re left with is a parched outer layer of skin and more spots lurking underneath, creating a damn painful face. Just think about some of the things they put in these products....

·         Salycyclic acid- often thrown into cleansers without any warning being attatched. It can cause moderate chemical burns. Use often enough and your skin will peel. Oxy cleaning pans are full of this awful stuff.

·         Benzoyl Peroxide- Toxic and an irritant. Used in facial peels. You will find it in strong spot creams. It bleaches your clothes. Personally that REALLY freaks me out.

·         Sodium Benzoate- Professor Peter W. Piper of the University of Sheffield claims that sodium benzoate by itself can damage and inactivate vital parts of DNA in a cell's mitochondria. Some illnesses caused from DNA damage include Parkinsons and other neurodegenerative diseases. This chemical is in Clearsil daily facewash.

There are hundreds more chemicals tucked away in these products I never even thought about when I used them everyday.  But when my skin burnt and peeled from the harsh chemicals I was shocked and am horrified by what I’ve found.  The skin is a living organ and we’re pumping it full of un-researched toxic chemicals?  Scary!!

SO I gradually stopped using these expensive, toxic products and found some FANTASTIC alternatives. I also discovered the secret to great skin…leaving it alone.

Don’t touch your skin, scrub your skin, peel your skin or pick your skin. The more you mess with it the more messed up it looks! The more you wash it the worse it gets. Leave it to be SKIN 

Use NATURALLY sourced spot fighting wonders, Tea tree oil, Witch hazel and lemon.

Here is an example-

Lemon remedy for acne!

A simple remedy at home for acne: Apply lemon juice regularly to reduce pimples and acne. Lemon juice is acidic in nature and also contains Vitamin C which is beneficial to overall skin health. If you have very sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with an equal amount of fresh mint leaf juice as this will help to reduce inflammation. There’s nothing wrong with using acid to dry up your oily skin as long as it’s natural!! We KNOW what lemon is. The earth gave it to use. Orange, garlic, cucumber and yogurt all also hold fantastic beneficial effects on your skin.  And honey is great to use as a skin softening mask.

When you feel the need to wash your face, use simple cleansers. Simple are a great brand aiming to eliminate the use of harsh chemicals. I use their make-up removal wipes everyday and they really balance my skin out.

If you suffer from persistent acne try tea tree oil or witch hazel. I suffered from persistent acne on my chin for years, I tried attacking it with everything possible and nothing ever worked. I bought tea tree spot treatment from Thursday plantation, used it for four days and it was gone.

Stay AWAY from Clearasil, Clean&Clear, Neutrogena, Oxy and especially anything cheap and nasty! READ ingredients 

Go natural, let your skin fall back into its natural balance and boycott these horrible products. Your skin will be so much healthier without them.
