Her past experience as a beauty magazine editor inspired her life’s work. She’d had all the top dermatologists and newest skincare trends at her fingertips – yet still struggled with acne breakouts.

It wasn’t until she became more conscious of a diet that her skin began to clear up.

We’re smarter consumers than we used to be.

In 2018, we check the ingredients in the things we eat and put on our bodies. We avoid certain chemicals that we know can hurt us. We have a better understanding of how what we put in and on our bodies has a direct impact on our health.

For this reason, a lot of us have decided to stick with “natural” products.

Because natural ingredients should be a lot safer than a chemical made in a laboratory, right?

Well… no. And here’s why.

 

Is Natural Really Better?

Don’t let the beauty industry fool you.

When it comes to the regulation of using the word “natural” on personal care products… there is none.

The FDA allows brands to describe their products as natural, even if it isn’t true. Your “all-natural” toiletries may actually only contain a minimal amount of natural ingredients.

 

How to See if Your Products are Safe – the RIGHT Way

There’s nothing wrong with natural products. In fact, botanicals have a lot to offer in skincare.

But what us consumers should be actually concerned about is if our products are safe. Natural doesn’t necessarily mean safe. (You wouldn’t be thrilled if your new moisturizer had poison ivy in it, would you?)

If you’re serious about a toxin- and carcinogen-free lifestyle, the best thing you can do is to learn how to read an ingredient label.

Certain chemicals build up toxins in our bodies over time. It’s much more important to know what these chemicals are than to be lured into a false state of security with “natural” products.

To get you started, here are some hints that a chemical in the ingredient label is harmful. If you have any of these chemicals in your beauty products, throw them away!

  • Ends in -glycol
  • PEGs
  • Ends in -paraben
  • Sodium laureth (or lauryl) sulfate

Are You Using Your Skincare Products in the Right Order?

We all love splurging on skincare. Some of us live for the latest luxury celebrity-approved skincare trends. Others spend their coins on ethically sourced, cruelty-free, the cleanest, greenest skincare you can find.

But all of that’s for nothing if you’re not using your skincare in the right order. You’re practically throwing that money away.

Step 1: Cleanse TWICE Every Day!

You should be cleansing your face every day and night.

A lot of people seem to think that washing your face in the morning when you already washed it the night before is a bit overkill.

Some skincare experts even say that it’s best not to wash your face when you wake up in the morning to preserve the healthy, natural oils our skin produced overnight.

Even though your skin’s natural oils may be good for it, washing your face in the morning is essential to unclogging pores and sloughing off dead skin cells. Avoid cleansing with hot water, which will be sure to strip away those healthy oils.

Using an ultra-gentle exfoliator, like the Rice Face Wash from my PUR attitude line is an effective way to really get rid of dead skin without irritating your skin.

Breaking the Code of Breakouts: What Does Your Acne Mean?

Breaking the Code of Breakouts: What Does Your Acne Mean?

All breakouts aren’t created equal.

In fact, the location of a cluster of acne can tell you a lot about your body. Forehead breakouts mean something different than chin breakouts, for example.

Nutrition expert Susan Ciminelli returns to map out the causes behind our acne breakouts.

Forehead Acne:

The forehead is one of the most common places for acne. But no one likes rocking a tiara of zits.

To understand forehead breakouts, Susan says to look to the small intestine.

“Your digestive system is not on autopilot,” she says. “Just because there’s food in your stomach does not mean that you’re going to digest your food.”

Anxiety, eating too quickly, and eating right before bed can all cause stress to the digestive enzymes in your system.

Since your digestive and nervous systems are not running optimally, neither is your skin. Remember that the next time you eat a snack before bed.

The Rub on Rosacea

“Rosacea comes from overly acidic blood,” Susan explains. “The typical American diet is very high in acid, like sugar, meat, and all kinds of processed foods.

But there are other reasons to avoid a highly acidic diet. An acidic environment facilitates bacterial growth and depresses the immune system.

“Brown rice is a neutralizer for your gut. And fermented foods can really help with rosacea,” Susan suggests.

3 Fall Skincare Secrets for Weather-Proof Skin

3 Fall Skincare Secrets for Weather-Proof Skin

As the seasons change, our skincare needs change, too.

Cool, dry air isn’t the only thing autumn brings. After a lazy summer of vacationing and spending time with the kids, back-to-school chaos may wreak more havoc on your skin than you realize.

Plenty of us are so busy running around and adjusting to our new schedules that we neglect our skin.

  • Stick to Your Skincare Routine

If the stressful transition from a beach bum summer to a fast-paced fall semester isn’t enough to break you out, skimping out on your routine will.

A lot of us skip parts of our skincare regimen to save time while we adjust to our new schedules. While this may shave off a few minutes while getting ready in the morning, you’re not going to be happy with your skin.

  • Keep Eating Clean & Using Clean Skincare

 

Noticing a pattern? Fall is a an easy time to fall back into bad habits.

Don’t stop making your own meals at home. Keep researching the ingredients in your beauty products. Don’t let a change in your routine be the reason why your skin is missing its usual glow.

  • Don’t Wash Your Face With a Bar of Soap

 

The fall air is notorious dry. So we know you wouldn’t dare leave the house without a moisturizer.

But if you’re washing your face with a bar of soap, you might as well be skipping your moisturizer.

Bars of soap tend to disrupt our skin’s natural pH balance, not to mention strip your skin of all of its natural oils. That’s a recipe for skin as dry as autumn leaves.

You need to use a moisturizing cleanser, like micellar water or diluted essential oils. They’re also great for removing makeup!
