WHY YOU SHOULD CARE FOR CLEAN BEAUTY- RIGHT NOW!
If you’ve got good, not easily bothered skin, congrats! You’re in the minority these days! You may also be wondering why you should switch your skincare, makeup and other beauty products if you’re not currently experiencing any obvious ill-effects at the present time. Fair question! Especially if those products you're using come in really pretty packaging and smell like roses. There are actually lots of immediate reasons why you should care about what’s in your beauty products and I am going to share with you, why you should give a damn - right now.
Skin that is continually exposed to irritants (yes, those chemicals in your mainstream products) can develop a compromised barrier over time. This means that while your skin may be okay for now, it will likely not stay that way forever if you keep applying the chemicals. Synthetics sensitise skin. Once your skin’s barrier is compromised, say hello to some serious potential side effects including redness, dryness, sore skin & even breakouts. It is important to look after your skin NOW to prevent these sorts of issues occurring in the future. The January Labs line is all about looking after the skin’s stratum barrier and keeping it protected. You can get it here
NOTHING LOST, NOTHING GAINED
So, your skin is doing “okay”. I think it should be doing more than okay when you’re paying a pretty penny for your skincare which you will be if it has a brand name, fancy packaging & comes with a bunch of promises to make you look a million bucks. Skincare filled with synthetic ingredients often lacks quality as it contains mostly water, preservatives and fillers. Commonly, it has extremely minimal amounts of the actual active ingredients it says it has – the amounts are too small to even make a difference. So, what are you paying for? The brand name. The pack. The marketing campaigns to promote said promises. For serious value for money, try Biologi skincare – this is 100% Active Ingredient. Nothing else. You can get Biologi here
IT’S NOT JUST YOUR FACE
We know you know that your skin absorbs what you apply. What does that actually mean? In addition to affecting the way your skin looks from a superficial perspective, ingredients found in mainstream products can be cancer-causing, disruptive to hormones, cause eczema and dermatitis, and can affect various organs & systems within the body amongst a range of side effects. It’s more than just having a pretty face. It’s your health.
