In today’s world, everything is about aesthetics. With the rise of social media and the latest trend of ‘selfies’, we are constantly reminded of how beauty is everything nowadays. While this is a rather sad and shallow way of life, it is hard to ignore, and most of us try our hardest to keep up with the image obsessed world.
Cosmetics companies are making billions because of this, but what we don’t realise is that we don’t have to turn to those man-made, extremely pricey products to maintain a good beauty regime. Natural products such as shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil, avocado, honey and herbs can be used to give us beautiful skin, hair and nails. This is what Africa Grace is all about!
There are so many reasons to ditch the fancy labelled products you see on shop shelves in favour of natural skin care:
Natural beauty products are cheaper and healthier.
Natural products are more concentrated and go further and are therefore cheaper in the long run. Big brands sell various lotions and potions for ridiculous prices to cover their advertising and labelling costs. You can achieve even better results from natural skin care products because they are so moisturising – the skin just LOVES it!
Natural beauty products are gentler.
Most of us don’t even bother to read up on some of the chemicals found beauty products. If we did, we would be shocked. Some of these chemicals include formaldehyde, parabens (which can cause cancer), and even lead and mercury! Natural beauty products are, of course, all natural and really good for your health.
Natural beauty products are kinder.
Not only are they kinder to the environment, beauty products do not, in any way, cause harm to animals and are not tested on animals. Because natural beauty products have no chemicals these easily break down and do not harm our delicate eco-systems.
Switching to natural beauty products is so easy these days as they are readily available and it should be the obvious decision to make as it is kinder to your body, the environment and your wallet.
