In this day and age, when it comes to advertising a product, the packaging is obviously marketed to grab your attention. Skincare companies are no different, with packaging shouting promises from the shelves about how the liquid inside will remove wrinkles, rid you of acne and shrink your pores.
When was the last time you turned the bottle around and had a good read of your skincare ingredients? After all, what we put on our skin, also gets absorbed into our bodies and into our blood stream, so it pays to be picky.
How do I know My Skincare Is Being Upfront and Honest?
By law any skincare sold within Australia must have the correct ingredients displayed on the back, and therefore the ingredients list will always be the best place to start. Don’t be afraid to stand in the supermarket or the chemist and give the ingredients a Google! This is your face we’re talking about, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Things Your Beauty Therapist Should Be Recommending You Avoid
You should always avoid products that contain parabens, formaldehyde, mineral oil, propylene glycol and sodium lauryl sulphate.
Some of these skincare ingredients are linked to cancer and are particularly horrible for those with sensitive skin. You should also be aware of any artificial fragrances or colouring added to your skincare products.
Which Skincare Ingredients Are the Safest and Most Effective?
Any sort of a botanical ingredient is always a great place to start, as this ingredient will be plant based. Other safe and effective cosmeceutical grade ingredients include coenzyme Q10, hyaluronic acid, plant enzymes like papaya and pineapple, and vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin E.
