It's time to clean up your act

What are you putting on your face? 

Have you ever looked at the ingredients of your skincare and makeup products? Are there ingredients you can't pronounce? Or 15 different ingredients that you have no idea what their purpose is?

For example, do your products contain mineral oil or lanolin oil? Marketing companies use these two ingredients to add "slip" to your creams – usually eye creams and moisturizers. They make your skin feel silky smooth, but they are actually depositing a barrier on your skin that smothers it. The end result? Your skin can't breathe, causing more blemishes and milia (white calcium bumps), and decreasing elasticity. None of that is conducive to helping your face age gracefully. 

It pays to be selective with the ingredients in your skincare and makeup because the skin on your face is thinner than other areas of the body. Ingredients can more easily absorb into skin when applied to the face.

Your skin is an organ designed to protect your body and act as a barrier to, among other things, toxins. And it's good at its job, but let's make its job easier by selecting products with clean ingredients.

Clean ingredients refer to those that are sourced sustainably, free from harmful chemicals, and are gentle on both the skin and the environment. Incorporating clean ingredients into your skincare and makeup routine can yield numerous benefits, both short-term and long-term.

Clean ingredients are gentle on the skin, reducing the risk of irritation, allergies, and other adverse reactions. Unlike harsh chemicals commonly found in conventional products, clean ingredients work synergistically with the skin's natural processes, nourishing and enhancing its health rather than causing harm. This gentleness is particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive skin or those prone to conditions such as acne or rosacea.

Clean ingredients also help preserve the integrity of our ecosystem. Many conventional skincare and makeup products contain synthetic chemicals that can be harmful to marine life and contribute to environmental pollution. By opting for clean ingredients, sourced responsibly, and produced ethically, we can minimize our ecological footprint and contribute to a healthier planet for future generations.

So, take a look at the ingredients in your products. Read the fine print. Google them to see what they are and how they might affect you. Our estheticians are always happy to answer any questions and make recommendations. And remember – marketing is a big deal with skincare. It doesn't mean the product is actually good for you.
