What Is Natural Beauty?

Natural beauty” — the term gets thrown around often, but what does it really mean?
“She’s a natural beauty.”
“I only use natural beauty products.”
“Is it all-natural?”
I’d wager a guess that we’ve all likely used and abused phrases such
as these from time to time, but what do we actually mean when we refer
to “natural beauty”? When strung together, the two words call to mind
one-ingredient beauty secrets, gardens filled with healing and
beautifying herbs, and ethereal humans who manage to leave the house
with — seemingly — nothing but some coconut oil and a smile smeared
across their faces. It sounds simple enough, but when you unpack it, natural beauty
is a far more complicated concept. Thinking of going chemical-free —
ridding those nasty chemicals from your home and beauty routine? Hate to
break it to you, but water is a chemical and so is sea salt….
You can see how there could be some confusion.
