Have you ever estimated the exact sum of money you spend on cosmetics and make up every year? How many times have you experienced unpleasant Allergy outbursts and rashes caused by poor quality skin and make up products?
According to a popular belief, the more expensive the product is, the more effective and harmless to the skin it is.

If you have a sensitive skin you can completely forget about the products that have parabens, synthetic colors, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances among the ingredients.
These are commonly used and said to be harmless but the truth is pretty different. Anyway, read the labels carefully and opt for a “cleaner” solution although it might be slightly more expensive.

They are durable, do not clog the pores, help irritated skin, have anti inflammatory properties and last but not least, they are water resistant.
According to a popular belief, the chemicals, some skin products contain prevent ageing and wrinkles more effectively than the natural ones but that's another urban myth you don't have to take into consideration.

However, there is another sigh of the coin. Many people think that anything that is edible can be put onto your skin but that's far from the truth. The natural beauty products have to contain useful and harmless to the skin ingredients indeed but would you dare to put a lemon on an irritated skin? The result will be disastrous, right? Bearing this example in mind, you should entrust the beauty specialists. In other words, reading the labels and buying natural make up products is undoubtedly beneficial to your skin but the quantities of these ingredients are also important. Preparing your own natural product may not lead to the desired results unless you know how to mix the ingredients.
