What does it mean to feed your skin with clean ingredients from natural skincare? As a living organ, your epidermis is constantly at work, repairing, rejuvenating and protecting you from the outside environment. Knowing all this, it only makes sense that we should want to care for our skin with the same love and attention that we give to the rest of our body.
Have you ever considered the way the products you put on your skin affect your health? Here’s what you need to know:
The Benefits of Natural Skincare
If you’ve been gravitating towards cleaner products and a more natural approach to skincare, you are not alone. As modern day skincare science advances, more and more brands and consumers are discovering that natural products are not only better for the skin, the body and the environment, but can also be plenty effective for creating true skin transformation.
By committing to a clean self care routine, you’ll not only help care for your skin more holistically, but build better habits that promote glowing skin and a lifetime of radiant beauty.
Ingredients to Avoid & What Natural Ingredients to Choose Instead
By now you may have heard of a collection of ingredients known as The Dirty Dozen or the Toxic Twelve. These chemicals have been identified by studies as being potentially harmful to your health. Unfortunately, despite evidence of increased risk, these ingredients are still found in many popular products and are not well-regulated by the FDA. On the other hand, in the European Union the safety standards are much higher, resulting in over 1300 banned toxins by EU regulations.
Because topical products are at least partially absorbed into the bloodstream, research is concerned with toxins like parabens, phthalates and other preservatives which may disrupt hormone function or even lead to more serious risks like cancer. Other ingredients such as sulfates and synthetic fragrances may be directly irritating to the epidermis, making them an ingredient to avoid if you suffer from skin sensitivities.
Instead, we recommend opting for natural, organic ingredients that are safe for the body and work in synergy to promote better overall skin health. Natural ingredients can be incredibly effective for addressing a number of common skin concerns including acne, aging, rosacea and more.
A few of our favorite natural skincare ingredients include:
Pure Botanical Oils – Moisture rich and super nourishing, plant-based oils are easily recognized and absorbed by the skin. They can help improve skin tone, elasticity, signs of aging, and provide support to the natural moisture barrier.
Wild Berries, Herbs and Plants – Plant herbs and extracts have been used for centuries for their ability to help heal and repair the skin. Wild berries grown in the near arctic climate are real Nordic superfoods. Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and other nutrients the skin loves. We love blending these natural ingredients into our formulas for their many benefits.
