Dispelling Natural Skincare Myths

There are lots of misconceptions about natural skincare,
so we set the record straight and offer solutions to some common misunderstandings about skin.

❌ OILS CLOG PORES AND CAUSE ACNE.

FALSE:
Some, not all oils are occlusive, meaning they coat the skin, creating a block between the skin and air, enveloping each cell. These more occlusive oils can take a longer time to absorb, or they simply don’t absorb at all on some skin types before they are rubbed or washed off. This can impact the skin’s ability to detox and exfoliate in a healthy way. The skin’s external layer contains dead cells, which it naturally sheds. When the skin is coated with a waxy substance this process is impaired and the pores can become clogged.

❌ MY SKINCARE STINGS WHEN I APPLY IT. THAT MEANS IT’S WORKING

FALSE:
The fact that your skincare is causing your skin to tingle or burn is because it’s creating a negative reaction in your skin, generating inflammation thereby delaying or preventing healing from occurring. When your skin is inflamed it’s actively fighting against whatever product you have just applied.

Rather than skincare which feels uncomfortable, you’ll get best benefit from skincare which calms the irritation and soothes the redness, allowing your skin to heal and repair naturally.

❌ I NEED TO COMBAT CONGESTED SKIN BY REMOVING ALL OIL FROM MY SKIN.

FALSE:
This causes the skin to over-compensate for the reduction of oils by producing even more, which in turn worsens the congestion.

When your skin’s outer barrier is stripped bacteria and toxins can enter, creating acne, eczema and other evidence of imbalance. Too many masks, and too much exfoliation can aggravate skin, causing breakouts.you have just applied.

❌ NATURAL SKINCARE PRODUCTS DON'T DELIVER RESULTS

FALSE:
Many of the ingredients found in our plant-based beauty products are better and more effective than those found in conventional skincare. Plants naturally contain effective ingredients that benefit skin, such as fruit enzymes, Vitamins A, C and E. Whole plant skincare is even more potent because it was perfected by nature. Much of what makes up traditional skincare is fillers, preservatives, scents, emulsifiers and additives that impact that texture, consistency and shelf life of the product.

In plant-based beauty, the products are much more concentrated and every last ingredient packs a powerful, purposeful punch.
