Getting enough rest fights these effects and helps your skin look its very best every day.
When it comes to your skin, whether it is oily skin, teen skin, tween skin, acne prone skin, sensitive skin or any skin type! What you don’t do in your skin care is as important as what you do.
There are endless skin care products available containing potentially harmful ingredients for tween and teen skin, and using them regularly could mean that you’ll deal with additional skin problems that could have been prevented.
Here are a few of the ingredients you should avoid in your skincare products for tweens and teen's skin.
Phthalates are ingredients used to do several jobs, such as dissolving other ingredients, keeping products moist, and softening skin. Unfortunately, exposing your skin to phthalates regularly over time may lead to health problems.
Also, phthalates are very difficult for water treatment plants to remove, and these substances can contaminate drinking water as well.
Phthalates and parabens often go hand-in-hand in cosmetic products. Parabens are a family of chemical compounds that skin care companies often use to extend the product’s shelf life and help fight microbes that could cause infection.
The problem is that parabens, like phthalates, have been linked to health problems, so it’s best to avoid them whenever possible.
Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate are found in many facial cleansers, typically used to create that creamy foam you’ve seen in face washes, shampoos, and detergents.
Although these ingredients are good at removing dirt, they have some critical drawbacks.
Have you ever noticed that your skin squeaks after washing? That’s because sodium lauryl sulfate strips beneficial oils from your skin, drying it out and causing it to compensate by producing too much oil.
Read ingredient labels, and you’ll find that many products contain triclosan, from toothpaste to face wash. Triclosan prevents the growth of bacteria and extends the shelf life of a range of products.
However, there is some concern that triclosan may cause serious health problems such as hormonal imbalances and increased sensitivity to the sun’s UV light.
With so many ingredients to avoid, it may seem as though there isn’t anything left to create a safe, effective gel face wash for tweens – but this isn’t true at all!
Tons of healthy, safe ingredients can be used in your skin care to give you the clear, soft skin you’ve always wanted while being able to cleanse the nasty oil, acne, breakouts and more away!
In your search for great skin care for all different skin types, you’re probably poring over lists of ingredients, looking for ones to avoid and ones to embrace. However, there is one other thing you should look for in your skin care: cruelty-free products.
That means that the products are not tested on animals so that you can enjoy beautiful skin guilt-free.
BTW, cruelty-free products aren’t just good for animals. Here are a few reasons to avoid brands that engage in animal testing.
The animals used in cosmetics labs are typically rabbits, mice, and hamsters, but dogs are also sometimes involved.
These animals must suffer unpleasant side effects as researchers subject them to many harmful chemicals and products to create safe products for humans.
Fortunately, there are many ways to create safe and gentle products that don’t involve harming animals, such as using ingredients like natural ingredients that are already known to be safe.
Shopping cruelty-free doesn’t only help animals – it also helps you. Makeup not labeled “cruelty-free” isn’t just tested on animals; it is also often made from animal bi-products.
For example, your makeup brush might be made of horse, squirrel, or goat fur.
One ingredient common in lipsticks – carmine – is made from crushed and blended insects.
If you prefer to keep animal parts off your skin, choose cruelty-free.
It isn’t hard to find brands that don’t test on animals. Luv Ur Skin is cruelty-free skin care range for tween and teen skin, for one.
Anyone who is committed to buying only cruelty-free products can find them if they do a little research.
Regardless of whether you have breakouts, pores, oil or acne, there is always an option out there!
Shopping cruelty-free makes you a vital part of ultimately eliminating animal testing.
You’re not only choosing healthier, safer products, but you’re also investing your money and your efforts into an important ethical cause.
Young people CAN make a huge difference!
It may not be easy to find your face-cleansing soul mate, but you can do it with just a little research. Luv Ur Skin is a unique line of skin care designed to cater to the specific needs of young skin. Your skin is the only skin you have, so it’s essential to take care of it the best you can.
That means using high-quality, natural ingredients.
Choosing natural skin care means that you’ll be using products that are safe, non-toxic, and non-irritating, even if your skin is very sensitive.
Look for a gentle, natural, and cruelty-free product – and use it properly – for the best odds of clean, clear, and healthy skin.
Makeup, deodorant, even fragrances. We don’t know the effects of using products with ingredients like harsh chemicals over a lengthy period of time, especially the harmful long-term effects it may have on our delicate skin.
So think about the products we are actually putting on our skin? The benefits of skin care that contains natural, gentle ingredients are endless!
Natural products are more environmentally friendly because they do not have a negative impact on our water supply, animals, and ecosystems.
Whereas, chemically produced skin care is made with more harmful ingredients which may end up damaging our soil or even waterways.
Products that utilize naturally sourced ingredients will not only help us reach a greener environment, but will also allow our skin to not rely so heavily on chemicals.
Hundreds of years ago, humans were using plants and natural oils to nourish, treat and protect their skin from breakouts, acne, bacteria, impurities and oil the organic way. So our ancestors were really onto something!
Using naturally derived skin care, especially cleanser, is a safer option to gently clean your skin. Your skin actually absorbs whatever you put on it from makeup to skin care and sunscreen, so products with harsh chemicals will have your skin taking in these toxins!
Many natural skin care products use natural preservatives such as grape seed extract to prolong shelf life. In the case of chemically produced skincare, parabens are conventionally used to help a product last longer on a shelf.
Parabens have been found to mimic estrogen in the body, in which has been linked to other side effects.
Although people can still experience side effects from natural products, it’s usually due to specific cases of sensitivities to particular ingredients and their effects are widely known and understood.
We make sure that we use an all-natural approach to the development in our products, there are no mystery ingredients that are harmful to the skin!
