If you have acne-prone skin, then you know what it is like to try all of the newest and popular products, only to be left with your skin in worse condition than it was before. You think “I did everything that the skincare gurus said to do, what went wrong?!” I’ve been there too, finding skincare for hormonal acne can be tricky, and that is why in today’s blog we are talking about 3 ways to avoid the Skincare Scaries, in honor of spooky season! Keep reading to learn more…

How-To Avoid The Skincare Scaries:

  • Stay Away From Fragrance

  • Fragrance can be found in sooo many products. It is not just bad for your skin but for your health in general. Fragrance is made of volatile compounds that sensitize the skin over time leading to redness and irritation. A lot of fragrance is made up of pthalates that are linked to cancer, edocrine disruption, and harm to the reproductive system.

  • Refrain From Daily Exfoliation

  • Salicylic acid and glycolic acid break down the skin barrier allowing immature cells to be exposed to air prematurely causing them to dry out. Leads to dullness, dryness, and areas of oily skin.

  • Do Not Use Products With Parabens

  • Found in almost every conventional skincare product lining store shelves because it's a preservative with a long shelf life. Parabens mimic estrogen and have been linked to hormone disruption along with reproductive and fetal development harm.

    If you have never heard that these ingredients and practices can be harmful for your skin, this could be really surprising for you! But it’s true, these 3 things can be really harmful for your skin and overall health. So what should you do instead?

    Make sure that the products you are using avoid ingredients like Fragrance and Parabens. Do your research and make sure that practices like Daily Exfoliation will be beneficial for your skin.

    Thankfully, here at Lavender Meadows Co., we have formulated products that are not only safe for sensitive skin, but also the best skincare when breastfeeding and the best skincare when pregnant.
