Natural ingredients are in, and harsh chemicals are out! Skin concerns and conditions are more common than one may think. Did you know that 1 in 4 people suffer from some form of skin condition? Desperate for relief, we run to our neighborhood pharmacy or dermatologist seeking help. Often the recommendation is to use a traditional chemical-based cream or ointment that has a long name we can’t pronounce with ingredients that are even more complicated.
If you’re determined to live a healthy and natural way of life, these traditional creams just won’t do. Natural skincare alternatives are becoming more popular, and medical professionals are now more than ever encouraging their patients to live a healthier lifestyle that goes beyond clean eating and daily exercise. What we put on our body is just as important as what we put in our body. Did you know that up to 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into the body? Most of these products are made with harmful artificial ingredients that can have long term negative effects on the body’s natural detoxification process.
Over recent years, there have been significant advancements in natural skin care with on-going clinical studies being conducted to support the efficacy of natural-based products. Such studies provide dermatologists and consumers with the facts they need to feel confident in the benefits of switching to natural, clean beauty products to treat frequent skin concerns. Some of the most common skin conditions dermatologists see can be treated with natural products are acne, wrinkles and various forms of skin rashes.
If you're suffering from acne, implementing natural products that contain Tea Tree Oil, Salicylic Acid and Willow Bark into your skincare routine can help reduce breakouts and blemishes. All three ingredients effectively help to reduce excess sebum, dead skin build up, inflammation, and have antiseptic properties. Often traditional chemical-based products can cause further irritation and flare-up versus natural ingredients that help to remove impurities while soothing the skin.
You can also reduce the appearance of fines and wrinkles with two super ingredients, peptides and vegan collagen. When used together, these ingredients combat signs of aging and improve skin health. Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins within the skin. Vegan collagen is a good humectant to help the skin to retain moisture, helping to keep skin supple. Applying serums and moisturizers with formulated with peptides and vegan collagen can help nourish the skin while supporting collagen health.
There are also very effective yet natural alternatives to calm skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Both can present themselves in the form of dry, flakey skin that may become raw and bleed. Instead of using harsh traditional creams there are natural alternatives enriched with soothing and deeply hydrating ingredients such as Neem Leaf Extract, Chamomile, Vitamin E and Burdock Root Extract. Each of these ingredients is rich in antioxidants that help to reduce redness, soothe irritated skin while optimizing the skin’s natural protective barrier.
Gone are the days where the only product options are filled with mystery ingredients with complicated names you don’t recognize. The evolution of natural skin care alternatives is growing and shows real results without compromising your healthy lifestyle.
