If you follow beauty bloggers, as most VIVA GLAM girls do, you are very much aware of the non-toxic, vegan, and and natural beauty movement. At VIVA GLAM, we’re all about cruelty-free and vegan products so you may have heard about this movement and some of the best natural products from us. But if you look closely, you never hear much about the before and after. All you hear is that it’s “better” or “safer”, but why? Sure getting rid of all of the nasty toxins
is the biggest plus, but what are the other benefits? Getting rid of toxins
is definitely the biggest benefit, and is the best reason for the switch, but it’s also the other reasons that keep me on the natural skincare bandwagon.
I’m Getting What I Pay For
A lot of the products don’t work, or just work for a short period of time. For instance, a lot of moisturizers contain drying agents. Doesn’t that seem counterintuitive? It may moisturizer for an hour but then you have to keep reapplying. It’s a vicious cycle. Natural beauty brands will actually do what they say they will do because they’re nothing else in the way of making the products work. You’ll use less product overall and won’t have to keep jumping from brand to brand to find what works best for you.
My Skin Feels and Looks a Lot Better
My skin is smoother, softer, tighter, and rarely breaks out. It’s also less susceptible to reactions from stress, PMS, or rosacea overall.
I’m Spending Less
..on some things. Certain items like face wash can be on the cheaper side. The one I use is under $20 and lasts a few months. Toner, essence, body wash, and body lotion can also be relatively affordable. However, you might have to invest in a good eye cream, day cream, and night cream – depending on the brand. But with the average high-performance luxury or spa brand, you’re still bound to spend more or around the same price as a natural product.
