Aug 17, 2007
Healthy and shiny beautiful skin is that every woman desires and men admire. These days almost every week, we do hear and/or read news about human generated pollution, global warming, growing population and deforestation that have generated plenty of problems like shortage of drinking water, floods, earthquakes. The skin of women with unhealthy body and mind will never shine and glow.

Today's superwomen who take responsibility of home, children and work place have very little time to take care of her. That is why most of the women use beauty products that are easy to apply and take less time to give them new look.

But gradually we are seeing that most of the women are willing to apply herbal beauty products because the influence of these products lasts for longer duration with negligible or no side effects.

These eco friendly, organic beauty products are combination of dried powders, flowers and roots in an oil base that do not contain preservatives. Here i will talk about some herbal beauty products that are available in market.

Products for face: Herbal beauty treatments use plant ingredients and natural substances that are known for their powerful healing and skin rejuvenating properties. These days mineral makeup is gaining popularity. Mineral makeup contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which have natural anti-inflammatory properties; it can have a soothing effect on the skin and is suitable for many people who are dealing with other skin problems like acne, pimples, sun burns etc.

It provides sheer coverage and works as a strong UV protection for your skin.Applying foundation is the first and essential step for attaining a perfect look. An organic foundation should encompass a blend of Safflower, Jojoba and Castor Oil along with Natural Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A to give you a high definition, full coverage finished skin.

If you have highly sensitive skin, choose Bare Minerals Foundation, approved by Skin Cancer Foundation is ideal for all skin types.

For lips: Cosmetics that contain chemicals can have ingredients linked to cancer, hormonal problems and skin irritations. But problem is that makeup can not be complete without matching lipstick.

These days a number of environment friendly lipsticks are available in the market. The organic lipstick will maintain the natural shine and color of your lips. Always try to check the ingredients of the lipstick before buying it.Your organic lipstick should contain Jojoba oil, and pure Vitamin E, Kukui Nut oil and lip-softening Aloe. The plus point is this you can find plenty of shades in various organic lipstick brands like Sante and Honeybee Gardens.

Products for your eyes: Chemical free mascara can be applied on even the most sensitive eyes. If you want to protect your eyes from harmful chemicals, choose Mascara with organic ingredients like aloe vera (aloe barbadensis) leaf juice, organic sugar-cane ethanol, black iron oxide and cera alba. You may try Miessenc Mascara or Aveda eye definer that contains extract of jasmine petals and geranium leaves, aromatic flower waxes.

Products for your hairs: Hairs are mirror image of your health. This is true that your eating habits impact a lot on your hairs. Healthy diet and sufficient sleep and right shampoo to clean your hairs can make these strong, shiny and healthy with out striping away the natural oils from the scalp.

Shampoo should be chosen according to your hair type. For selecting shampoo for normal to dry hairs, you should choose shampoo that contains Aloe Vera, organic Calendula, organic White Tea, organic Licorice Root, organic Comfrey and essential oils. Your shampoo should give hair a fresh start after exposure to chemicals and environmental stressors that includes chemical salon services, outdoor and indoor pollution.
