Spending tons of money on a new beauty product that claims to “banish acne instantly!” sounds closely familiar. When these products are introduced to us through false advertising, we get lured into purchasing them because they claim to banish pimples and fade dark circles with just one application. Yet our skin remains the same: dry/flaky/oily/acne prone and nothing has changed, except our wallet – which has become a lot lighter.
These products also boast having natural ingredients. So question is “why don’t we use nature’s products instead of buying a moisturizer that is 5% natural and 95% chemical?
Here are 3 “au natural” products that are easy on your wallet, easy to find and will help with your skin problems!
