Does natural mean it's automatically good for your skin?

So I've been reading some articles about natural makeup products. Some people swear by using natural products and say its made their skin much better, others say that there were chemicals in natural makeup that they didn't realize and it actually harmed their skin. What do you think? Is using natural makeup better or worse than using just regular unnatural products?

No, just because something is natural does not mean it is good for you.  Just like products with manufactured ingredients, natural products are made of multiple components.  It is possible that one or more of those ingredients will not be compatible with your skin.  For instance, there could be a natural oil in the product that makes some people break out.  I think of it how some people have allergies to things like peanuts or bananas, which are natural, it's just that their bodies react to them.
