Clean Beauty

Clean Beauty

Clean beauty could mean:

  1. You’re actively looking to minimize certain controversial chemicals in your skincare, including fragrance, preservatives like parabens and phthalates, and dyes, all of which can be irritating to the skin. But this may mean that you are still using products that contain chemicals.

  2. You’re looking to minimize your exposure to all chemicals.

You might then opt for truly natural products, like using coconut oil as a body moisturizer.

  1. You’re “cleaner” when it comes to certain products in your routine, like cleansers and soaps, but still use conventional acne products because you find these treat your skin problem better.

Concerns are growing among consumers and professionals that many ingredients used in skin-care products may affect our health. We actually live in an environment where there are tons of chemicals everywhere.

If you’re using products that are free of the most common ingredients that cause the skin to react — think fragrances, dyes, parabens, and phthalates — it may help your skin remain calmer, and you may experience fewer symptoms of irritation, like redness, burning, and flaking.

But pay attention, you’re not guaranteed happy, irritation-free skin just because you’re using something labeled as natural or clean. So work with your dermatologist here. They can help you find the products and routine that will address your clean beauty preferences while working toward your treatment goals.

Ingredients to Opt For

You may want to seek out the following, commonly present in “clean” beauty products:

1. Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, panthenol, ceramides (moisturizers)

2. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (found in mineral-based sunscreens)

3. Vitamin C (a protective antioxidant)

4. Alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid for evening skin tone)

5. Beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid for acne)

6. Bakuchiol (a retinol alternative, used to address fine lines and wrinkles)
