The beauty industry is a $455 billion business that doesn’t like to encourage women to embrace their natural beauty and shake off self-doubt. Some brands have launched so-called “real women” campaigns, but for the most part it is business as usual.
In addition convectional products are often very expensive and they can also contain synthetic chemicals that are bad for your health. Thankfully, there are many other natural alternatives that will save you a lot of money and time.
At the end, there is nothing wrong for a woman to take care of herself and look the way she wants to look.
