Natural Skincare….Clean Skincare… Just what do these phrases actually mean??
Hello MK Beauties! Hope you had a fabulous Fourth and are enjoying your summer. Summer months usually mean less makeup and a simple skincare routine that really helps enhance our skin and give us a beautiful and natural look. Last week we talked about summer skin issues and how to combat them. Because the truth is we want to feel beautiful all year long but especially in the summer when we aren’t as covered up!!
Natural skincare and clean skincare have become phrases thrown around by many in recent times. There are truths and misconceptions about both.
Cosmetic ingredients are hotly debated in the U.S., where theFDA has banned just 11 additives in our cosmetic products. And the crazy thing is that there have been very few regulations added since 1938. With the exception of color additives, cosmetics may contain any ingredient, as long as it does not cause the product to be extremely unsafe in any way.
So today I am going to break it down for you… Being educated on this will help you in your quest to take care of yourself and your family and to achieve and maintain healthy skin and a healthy body.
Did you know any company can use the word ‘natural’ on its label? This means that no matter how many potentially harmful or questionable ingredients are found inside a skincare formula, its brand can technically still call it a natural product. This actually goes one step further because ‘natural’ is not even an official term. ‘Natural’ cannot be regulated. But as a consumer, if you hear the word natural, you think you are making a smart choice. Unfortunately that is not always the case.
What natural usually means is that the product is free from synthetic chemicals that may be linked to health problems or some of the most popular skin irritants including fragrance, dyes, and certain preservatives such as parabens…But that is not always the case, so as the consumer, you need to do research so you really know what you’re buying.
Another issue are active ingredients. A lot of times, effective ingredient molecules may be too large to even penetrate the skin. So to shrink these molecules to attempt to make products penetrate the skin, the active ingredient may end up being so minimal that no benefit can actually even be attained.
Now let’s discuss Clean Skincare
Most often, clean skincare is referred to as products that are mindfully created and produced without any proven or suspected toxic ingredients. Clean Beauty products include ingredients ethically sourced and are made with the health of our bodies and the environment in mind. They are also eco-friendly and cruelty- free.

Bioactive ingredients… Let’s talk about what makes skincare WORK!!!
Why does Skincare have to be so complicated?
All of us want beautiful and healthy skin. We want that youthful radiance to last us for years to come. And most of us continue to fall for marketing gimmicks that tell us THIS is the holy grail product so buy me now!! So we do!! Speaking from experience, it was the constant let down that I got from product after product that led me into my career field of aesthetic dermatology and aesthetics.
