Are Herbal Skin Care and Makeup Compatible?

I’ve got a confession to make.
I threw out all my cosmetics months ago. Okay, I still have lipstick. But all that other stuff I was putting on my face every morning is gone. Why such a drastic move? Well, I recently began looking for an herbal skin care line for anti-aging. I’m in my mid-thirties now and, truthfully, I feel like my face is falling apart every time I look in the mirror. It worries me so much.

So, anyway, I was doing some research on herbal treatment for the skin. You know, just trying to find out which herbs were the most effective, which ingredients to look for on the label. And I came across an article about the widespread use of harmful chemical ingredients in herbal skin products.

There’s a whole list of them.

I copied down a few of them on a post-it and went into my bathroom. I just wanted to see if any of these toxic ingredients were in my makeup. Oh my god. I couldn’t believe it. Every label I looked at, sure enough, there were 3 or 4. I had been using these for years, putting this gunk on my face.

But, even knowing that my makeup contained all these bad chemicals, it was still really hard to toss it all in the wastebasket. It took me all weekend to do it. What would people think of me without makeup?

Well, I went to work that Monday morning. I could tell that the other women in the office noticed, but the men seemed oblivious. And I’ve had a few dates since and one guy really liked my natural look. He said it was refreshing.

For a while there, I wasn’t using makeup or an herbal treatment for the skin.

It just didn’t make sense to keep using my makeup. I was looking for an anti-aging herbal treatment for the skin. How could I expect to see results if I kept exposing my skin to harmful chemicals? I wanted to put only natural substances on my skin and let my skin be rejuvenated.
