â��Beauty comes within oneself.â�� Everyone must have heard this one time in his or her life. Do not get me wrong it is true but with that in mind, beauty can be achieved with giving your skin 15 to twenty minutes a day. these few minute a day will give your skin the appearance of a more youthful age, radiant glow, less appearance of wrinkle, and lots of other beneficial effects. Letâ��s not say that all these factors can be achieved with harsh chemical-containing products because you can get the same results by using natural products from your own kitchen.
OK, let me admit upfront that I am by no means a harmonious, at-one-with-nature, hippy vegan living in a commune (although the idea occasionally appeals). I am liking my hairspray & lipstick as much, if not over, the next person.
But Iâ��ve been gradually making different choices with my beauty purchases & the results & benefits are so lovely that I feel the necessity to shed light on this alternative. Natural beauty products have changed. They are no longer oily, ineffective, health-food-shop rubbish. There is a whole new wave of natural brands which not only work but are better for you & the environment, not to mention obtainable & affordable.

I was one time sceptical. But they do actually work, & usually smell a million times better than mainstream products. My skin has improved significantly since I have made a shift away from mainstream brands.

A wise mate made me think when they said that the beauty products you put on to your body are drunk by your skin & are therefore â��consumedâ�� by you. This made me form the opinion that I probably shouldnâ��t put anything on my body that I wouldnâ��t eat. This might sound extreme, but when you give it some thought, itâ��s perfectly logical.
