Who decides what beauty is? Natural cosmetics
Along the history of humankind several philosophers and not philosophers have debated around this topic: not that they really came up to an agreement but still they pointed out a very good question.
One thing is for sure: nowadays beauty is very much made up. We are never satisfied of natural beauty and we tend to “improve” it all the times. We even redefine pictures of trees, flowers and fruit: they must look just perfect to draw our attention and to be sold. Of course they need to look perfect according to our idea of perfection. Which is absence of wrinkles and glossy lips. We might not agree with this idea of beauty and perfection but that is the why it is in many places around us right now.
If we really want to stay inside that box why not doing it by staying halfway in halfway out, perhaps having fun out of this experiment? Why not using natural make up? It does sound like a contradiction.
How can it be naturali if it tricks the eyes? Still, whatever your opinion on the matter is you should know that sometimes beauty grows on trees even though money does not. Eco sustainable cosmetics are made out of natural elements such as plants, flowers and fruits. That sounds like a new way of being fashionable, a natural one but for real. Indeed, you should know that for years goods have been advertised as containing natural elements while only having a glimpse of them. Nowadays rules about informational tags don’t allow this to happen anymore. Checking the nutritional tag of food products is still a good idea. Do just the same for cosmetic products and you will start seeing with wider eyes how easy seems to be to cheat on clueless buyers. Just take my clue but don’t take my word for it and check with your own eyes. Wide open and coloured with a green eco eye shadow! Sometimes experimenting with nature can be fun and if you add nature to cosmetics you can create or buy very original products! Why not try? Nowadays eco-friendly products are fashionable and not much more expensive than others. So I advise you to try before saying it is not your thing. You might find out that avocado lotions really suit your skin and smell nicely besides polluting less than other kinds of lotions you can easily find located on the supermarket shelters. The hard thing at the beginning might be to find out where you can get more information or directly buy these products, but once you found out just buy some and try. Why not take the chance beyond the traditional chemistry? Or, better said, why not go towards a new tradition that respects the environment?
