Ingredients Per Issue! 🤯
—It can be confusing what all the ingredients are in products. For me, it has taken a long time to decipher what’s good and bad for my current problem. Below I am going to break it down to make it a bit easier next time you’re shopping! Please keep in mind these ingredients are the TOP suggested ingredients to look for and not look for in products based on each issue!
• Sensitive Skin: The important ingredients to look for are glycerin, bisabolol, aloe vera, almond oil, & rosehip oil. The ingredients to avoid are alcohol, witch hazel, soap, camphor, menthol, sulfates, fragrance, & menthoxypropanediol. (Some of these surprised me after my research, as I always assumed menthol and camphor were great for soothing skin)!
• Rosacea: Look for the same ingredients as sensitive skin + jojoba oil. One needs to avoid the same as sensitive skin + essential oils & synthetic fragrances. • Combination Skin (with or without acne): Look for salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, glycolic acid, & lactic acid. Avoid the use of mineral oil, shea butter, & non-plant waxes (which who knows the differences! Best to stay away altogether. Unfortunately, several makeup products contain wax).
• Dry Skin: Look for glycerin/jojoba/almond/borage/evening primrose oils, squalane/lene, lactic acid, and gamma linoleic acid. Do not use alcohol, mineral oil, camphor, menthol, soap, sulfates, or essential oils (!). • Dehydrated Skin: Look for sodium hyaluronate, biosodium hyaluronate, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, & jojoba oil. No: Sulfates, alcohol, soap, menthol, camphor, or essential oils. —These lists could truly go on forever and ever, but at least now everyone can refer to this in desperate need to check for top yes and no ingredients! Hopefully, this little guide makes it easier when shopping for products! 🛍
