For most women, part of the morning and evening routines involve a skincare regimen of applying creams, moisturizers, tonics, lotions, and the like. Why do women put themselves through this? They do it primarily to combat the signs of aging, and to maintain youthful looks and beautiful skin! It is a safe bet, however, that most women haven’t put much thought into what is in the products that they are using.
So, what can women do? How can they combat environmental pollutants, the effect of solar radiation, and the drying effects of air? How can they be sure they are using the very best products on their skin, so they can be healthy inside and out? Here are 7 tips to assist in this process:
1. Read the label! Just because it says “vegan” does not mean it is. This is a tactic many companies used to attract people to their products. When looking for all natural or vegan products, beware. Look for a brand that calls themselves vegan, they can’t say it unless they are. Good examples are
Honest Beauty Good chance they have what you are looking for. I really enjoy their body washes, good enough for children!
Pacifica Beauty I love their skincare, makeup? It is a hit or miss for me.
Freeman Beauty – brand has been around for years! When I was young, I love their clay masks!
Just to name a few.
2. Look for products that contain Dermal Surface Renewal Technology. DSR soothes away existing signs of aging such as laugh lines, crows feet, and dullness. Brands such as Peter Thomas Roth or DERMAL – with world-famous masks.
3. Use products that have regioisomers. Regenisomes penetrate the skin to speed cell renewal after sun exposure. They also use the light of protostomes to undo sun damage and have ultrasonic to renew skin while sleeping.
4. Find products with Proteo-C and Proflavonol-T. These two vitamins protect the skin from premature aging caused by the sun, pollution, and other environmental factors. They also provide advanced nutrition to the skin to keep it appearing smooth and firm.
5. If possible, use products that are paraben-free. Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives that are widely used in personal care products such as shampoos, conditioners, hairstyling products, makeup, facial masks, skin lotions and creams, and deodorants. They also are typically ingredients in baby lotions, shampoos, and other personal care products for infants and children.
In addition, parabens are in many foods and pharmaceutical products. Researchers are beginning to find parabens in benign and malignant human breast tumors. While some studies have challenged their toxicity in many products and question their long term effect on humans, using products that are paraben-free can eliminate the risk of exposure to this harmful chemical.
