There's a number of reasons why making the switch to natural beauty products is beneficial. Not only are chemical-free formulas that are better for your skin, organic ingredients are more gentle on the planet but, if going natural means spending a whole paycheck to stock up on products, chances are you're going to stick with your current routine (and we don't blame you!).
