Commercial Skin Care Products Vs. Home Remedies: What’s The Difference?

Commercial skincare products are a multi-billion dollar industry. However, many of the ingredients in these products have been linked to hormone disruption and other hazards. Luckily there are some simple, natural remedies that you can make right at home.

In this blog post, I’ll share my favorite home remedies for common problems like acne and wrinkles, as well as how to avoid harmful ingredients in commercial skincare products. You’ll also be given tips on what to do with your old makeup, so it doesn’t go down the drain.

Natural & Commercial Beauty Products

So many women are asking the question, “What is the difference between commercial skincare products and home remedies?” Well, one thing to keep in mind is that there are so many different types of ingredients in commercial products which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Home remedies work better because they have less harsh ingredients like lemon juice or honey, which will only nourish your skin. Another reason I recommend going with home remedies instead because they cost less money than buying expensive lotions from beauty stores.

The first step is figuring out if you have oily or dry skin. Oily skin starts producing oil at puberty, while dryness happens due to moisture in the air or other environmental factors like wind, cold weather, or over-washing with hot water. It’s essential to figure this out because different skincare routines are recommended for each type of skin type. For example, those with oily skin need a moisturizer that doesn’t include greasy oils, while those with dry skins should use a heavier cream made from ingredients.

Commercial skincare products are often more expensive than home remedies, but they have better quality. Home remedies can be time-consuming to make and may not always work as well as their commercial counterparts. However, some exceptions, such as natural ingredients like honey or coconut oil, do not require any preparation before use and are easy to apply.

Different types of skincare products

There is something to be said for the beauty products you use on your skin. They can make a huge difference in how healthy, youthful and vibrant you look. Some women choose to use natural ingredients or all-natural products, while others prefer commercial brands, including parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, etc. Whatever your choice may be, here are some tips on what to look for when researching different types of beauty products:

  • Read reviews about the product before purchasing it – this will tell you if other people have had success with its effectiveness.
  • Look at ingredient labels – often, these are not listed prominently enough so take time to read them thoroughly and do research about them online.

We all want to be our best selves. But sometimes, we don’t know how to achieve that goal or the most effective way of getting there. It can be hard choosing between expensive store-bought items and something you make in your kitchen – but it doesn’t have to be.
