Clean Beauty & Why It’s Important
Your body is a temple, right? Isn’t that what they say? Nurturing your body from the inside out is one of the MOST important aspects of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our skin (the largest organ in our body) seems like an easy and obvious starting point; there’s a lot of information (and misinformation!) out there on ways to take care of it and things to avoid. Penetration of chemicals vs. absorption, the best exfoliator, which moisturizer is correct for your skin type…It can all be a little overwhelming. It’s ok to err on the side of being pickier, especially when it comes to your everyday beauty essentials. You are wearing these products 365 days a year, give or take a few makeup-free days of course.
One thing that most everyone can agree on, though, is that synthetic chemicals are not great for your skin. Which makes sense, right? If it’s synthetic, why would you want to put it on the largest organ of your body, our protective barrier, and risk potentially damaging it for years to come? The most important part of your skin is actually a tiny little part of it: stem cells. Skin stem cells only account for up to 7% of skin cells, but they are responsible for all of our skin’s regenerative properties. And unfortunately, as we get older, these regenerative properties slowly reduce meaning fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and other signs of damage become more and more apparent.
Choose Your Beauty Products Wisely!
Choosing clean skincare is so important for the appearance of our skin. Fighting aging is not the only reason to use clean beauty products, though. Since our skin is the largest organ on our body, there are plenty of opportunities to absorb harmful materials into our body through our skin. All those synthetic chemicals that we were talking about earlier. They can be found everywhere and can have a hugely harmful impact on your skin. Dyes, parabens, and other synthetic materials can cause skin irritation and unsightly blemishes after use, which is the opposite of what you’re looking for when trying to cultivate a solid skincare routine. That’s why we have complied some of our favorite beauty essentials for you, hopefully making it a little easier to make the switch.
