From clean eating to chemical-free home products, many Americans are focused on the clean lifestyle trend. Are “clean” skincare products actually “clean?” While natural skincare products may be free of chemicals, they aren’t always safer than their traditional counterparts. According to a recent study, descriptions of products labeled “clean” or “natural” are not regulated and may contain high concentrations of ingredients that can cause irritation and allergies.
The reality? The “clean beauty” movement is actually a marketing tool that plays upon the clean lifestyle trend. Dermatologists & estheticians recommend that rather than leaning toward “clean” or “natural” skincare products, take a balanced approach to choosing skincare products. Whether you lean toward drugstore brands or medical-grade products, consider products that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Our recommendation? Medical-grade products. Clinically-proven, high-performing skincare products are formulated to provide targeted solutions for enhancing the skin’s appearance and reducing signs of aging. Check out some of our favorites:
