Why use organic concealers

Makeup is used to cover and conceal an unsightly scar, blemish or dark circles. Breakouts start to occur at puberty so concealing them is important. Teenage girls skin is sensitive and finding products to help hide the eruptions is important. Many begin using makeup around that time also so finding a product that doesn't worsen the condition is desirable.

Women are always on the lookout for the latest beauty products on the market today. As we age those bags and dark circles under eyes appear more pronounced. Blemishes and age spots are also a problem, so concealers can be a God-send.

Covering the dark circles can be tricky. The liquid foundation usually dries and cakes up; the powered concealer rubs off and must be reapplied and the stick roll-on type can make the puffiness worse if too much pressure is applied.

To make matters worse are the ingredients in most over the counter products. They will often cause skin break outs and rashes causing you apply more makeup. It's a vicious cycle of frustration for anyone with problematic skin. Read the labels carefully and be sure to research first.

Natural or Organic

Being cursed with sensitive skin, I look for makeup with organic, hypo-allergenic ingredients. I always read the label and look for some words such as organic and natural. Some concealers do a better job than others.

I have used many products and suffered from reactions that lasted days or even weeks! Makeup concealers being applied to the most sensitive areas of my face must be carefully scrutinized.

To be classified as natural or organic, a company must use mostly ingredients that actually are considered organic or natural. In other words, no synthetic, or allergens in the makeup. Since the cosmetic industry is mostly unregulated, the consumer must be alert to their claims and read every label or research the web for reviews.

Most of these product lines have some “other” ingredients so it's assumed that since people are having a better experience using these products. The consumer may come to the conclusion that there must be some truth to their claims.II recommend reading reviews carefully to determine whether you're going to have the same beneficial results. Video reviews are another good source of information.

I have reviewed some concealers that claim to be made with natural ingredients. Most of these products have the same list of ingredients, give or take a few.

Some of these ingredients you'll find on the label are;

  • organic Castor oil
