Entrepreneur actress and mother, Nabila Khashoggi, explores why natural cosmetics are a healthier choice than typical chemical-based cosmetics.
Even though cosmetics are not usually ingested, their contact with skin means the ingredients can be absorbed into the body through the pores. When wearing makeup that contains mostly chemicals, the user is exposed to an array of toxins that can be harmful to the body. Natural cosmetics are chemical-free and contain mostly ingredients from plants and other natural, non-harmful sources.
Natural cosmetics can produce a healthier benefit for the wearer, enhancing and nourishing the skin. Artificial ingredients in other cosmetics can result in allergic reactions, rashes, and acne, while the natural cosmetics can reduce conditions such as acne and rosacea.
Fully natural cosmetics can be difficult to find, but careful examination of ingredients lists can help customers determine which cosmetics are safe and natural.
Nabila Khashoggi has her own cosmetics company, “Nabila K,” that includes a naturally derived bubble-bath line.
