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.

Have you ever heard of the philosophy: “If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin”?

 

Consumers are realizing that what we put on our bodies matters just as much as what we put in them.

 

So it’s not surprising that more and more of us are reaching in our pantries for our skin care routines rather than than emptying our wallets for the latest luxury skin care.

 

The industry shift toward Safe Beauty inspires the crafty, creative side in many of us (or just made us paranoid about the transparency of the beauty brands we support).

 

I’m talking about D.I.Y. beauty – it’s more popular than ever!

 

Carol Alt joins Just Ask David for a few of her favorite D.I.Y. skin care tips!

 

The Best Beauty Mask is One You Can Eat

We all know that diet can have a huge impact on our skin. Even the best skin care products in the world can’t eliminate the issues caused by a poor diet.

 

So it makes sense that there are some foods out there that can make a positive impact not just on our diets, but on our skin and hair, too.

 

“Yogurt is a great mask or even kefir, which is what I prefer because kefir has more probiotic,” Carol shares. “But if you eat it, it’s great because it repopulates the probiotics in your intestine… it’s great on your face and the lactic acid helps keep your skin really smooth and soft.”

 

A popular skincare ingredient that can surprisingly be eaten for its benefits is bentonite clay.

 

We know that bentonite is great at drawing out toxins in our skin, but did you know it can do the same thing in your gut?

 

“I always keep [bentonite clay] in the refrigerator because if you get any kind of bacterial infection in your stomach… a little bit of bentonite three times a day, a tablespoon, will soothe that.”

There’s one thing you can always be certain of when it comes to skincare trends: here today, balm tomorrow.

But it makes sense.

As technology and our understanding of the human body evolves, so does our skincare.

Just a few decades ago, we didn’t know how catastrophic the effects of smoking cigarettes on our skin. We had no idea.

Even the most beautiful, fresh-faced actresses in Hollywood went through cartons of cigarettes like they were potato chips – completely unsuspecting of the havoc they were wreaking on their skin and overall health.

Can you imagine that now?

So what does the skincare industry look like in 2018? What trends are shaping skincare at the moment?

 

Life Imitates Skincare? Or the Other Way Around…

With Safe Beauty becoming more of a priority for consumers, skincare addicts are endlessly searching for the most effective and least harmful ingredients.

Many skincare brands are now using ingredients that already exist in our bodies naturally, like collagen and hyaluronic acid.

We naturally have an abundance of these youth-preserving substances, but their production decreases dramatically when we get older.

So not only are these skincare ingredients surprisingly effective, but they’re completely non-toxic!

 

The Best Oil for Your Skin You’ve Never Heard Of

It seems that every few years, the beauty industry totes a new oil as the most effective and valuable oil for our skin (only to be denounced as the worst possible thing for your skin a year later).

But red palm fruit oil is different. There are a ton of reasons why this oil is a couple of steps above the industry’s most beloved fats, like coconut oil and shea butter.

Red palm fruit oil is packed with omegas, antioxidants, micro-nutrients, trace minerals, and tons of other goodies!

And that’s not even it! Red palm fruit oil can be effective whether you ingest it or apply it topically, making it versatile for skincare or beauty supplements.

 

Probiotic and Fermented Skin Care

Even with superfoods like red palm fruit oil breaking the skincare scene, formulators are taking it a step even further by experimenting with fermentation.

Skincare researchers are finding that when skincare ingredients undergo the fermentation process, the body absorbs the nutrients remarkably faster.

So you’d better believe that skincare formulators like David are already testing the effectiveness of fermented red palm fruit oil and others.

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

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.
