Spring into Clean Skin Care
Finally, Spring is here and so is the time for SPRING CLEANING! Dust off those shelves, donate items you don’t need or can’t use anymore, plant flowers, freshen up your wardrobe, tidy up the yard. The fact is, Spring represents change and it inspires us to do a little changing too!
Along with the typical spring cleaning, it’s also a great time to clean out your bathroom drawers and cabinets. Replace old, expired skin care products with new ones. Even better, examine the ingredients on the labels. If they contain chemicals, consider switching to a new, CLEAN, organic product! It’s true that our skin absorbs 60% of what is applied to it. Harmful ingredients such as chemicals and preservatives can be absorbed into your bloodstream and cause long-term effects. It’s never too late to clean up your skin care!
Label Scanning Tips:
- Ingredients that are hard to pronounce are usually a red flag!
- If the product includes water, it has preservatives.
- Most parabens, end with the word “paraben.” Parabens have been linked to hormone disruption, breast cancer, and contact dermatitis.
- Download Think Dirty and Environmental Working Group (EWG) app to verify your ingredients.
