The last time I plucked the pits was probably… hmmm.. Never!
Seriously, I never plucked them because I was such a coward to hurt myself in that manner, let alone that one-time unrequited love way back. Oops!
I actually resorted to hot wax and hair removal creams before; the hair removal cream I can manage, but not the hot wax! I was literally in tears with two arms flipped up in the air because the “meeting place” of my arms and torso were too busy being copiously wax-spread. They were too painful to remove!
So I really tried to find other means to keep the skin supple, smooth and non-chicken-ish.
Most tend to forget that the skin is indeed the body’s biggest organ.
And just like any organ, it needs a certain amount of care for it to stay healthy and function properly. The thing is, people think that they are doing their skin good by applying certain products or having certain services done on regular basis. This, in some degree, can be true. However, the fact of the matter is, most beauty products—including those used in some of the most regular beauty services you get—contain chemicals that do more harm to the skin (and the rest of the body) than good.
It is not uncommon knowledge that anything we apply on our skin eventually ends up in our bloodstream. And for this reason, more and more people are now opting for all-natural and organic beauty options.
On an average, four out of ten people readily seek out organic products. But if you’re part of the six still on the fence, here are the top reasons why you should make the switch:
- Less health risks
As said before, most of the beauty products available in the market today contain a standard cocktail of chemicals, which do more harm your skin than good. This, combined with exposure to harmful pesticides and preservatives used on the food sold in supermarkets, can give rise to a number of diseases.
- Lower exposure to allergens
The chemicals commonly used in beauty products, whether to strengthen its effects or extend shelf life, can cause skin irritation and trigger allergies, particularly for those with sensitive skin.
Organic products may seem less effective compared to their chemical counterparts, but are gentler on the skin and has no side effects.
- Helps nourish your skin
Organic and all-natural beauty products are all plant-based. Meaning, the main ingredients used in these products come from directly from plants or parts of plants and come with nourishing power. In the same way that you are advised to eat your fruits and vegetables regularly to keep the rest of your body healthy, putting on all-natural products on the skin will definitely help supply it with much-needed vitamins and minerals to boost its health.
- Better quality products
There’s a lot of effort and detail that goes into the production of an all-organic, product, if only because they want to encourage more people to see the benefits of going chemical-free.
- (Almost) Painless Regimen
Waxing is arguably one of the most tedious and painful beauty regimens anyone has to go through, but through organic options—particularly sugar wax, which wraps thoroughly around the hair and allow for a cleaner pull, pain is greatly reduced.

My eyebrows only needed a little retouch since I had them threaded about a week and a half ago, surprisingly it wasn’t that painful, and the redness ebbed faster than it used to.
