To be frank, chemical cosmetics not at all good for our skin. Day-by-day these are becoming part of our daily life when we are ready for make up while going out side. We are not only using these products for our skin but also taking chemicals inside in the form of tablets. Our entire natural remedies, natural system is becoming spoil day-by-day.

See, in earlier days, while taking bath they use sunni pindi which is a herbal bath powder and good for our skin. It smoothens our skin and no need of using extra hair removal products like veet and all. To make our skin glow and fairer, we should apply vitamin-C to our skin. Vitamin C is available in lemon, tomoto etc. Applying turmeric powder to our face which brings brightness to our face.

To make our hair longer, thicker and shiner we use henna, tea powder, alovera, neem, Coralwood tree leaves etc. used. Now-a-days, number of chemical powders are available in the market that too before hair bath, after hair bath and with different companies.

Previously, for functions and parties, our tradition is to use henna which made from leaves. Now-a-days, directly mehandi is available in the market which contains sometimes chemicals also.

Like this, we can set many examples.

Of course you are right. Chemicals in cosmetic products are harmful for skin. There is whole lot of possibilities from skin allergies to cancer as most products have carcinogenic substances in it. The skin brightening creams, the smooth skin lotions are rich of chemicals and are proved to have impact in the long run. There are some natural treatments using fruits, vegetables, oils which can produce better results and enhance the way of life. If you are interested then look for herbal and Ayurveda products available online. Certainly cosmetic products are harmful to health.

Chemical products are not good for your skin. Each skin is different and the reaction on each skin can be even more different. So you have to make sure that you have tested the product on one of the areas of body before using it on regular basis.

Most of the products are designed to be safe these days. However some chemicals continue to affect the skin. So make sure that you are using something that doesn't affect your skin for long. And if by any chance there is any reaction on skin, then just change the chemical product.

This is one reason the herbal products have more demand in the beauty market these days.
