3 Benefits of Plant-Based Skincare
It’s no secret that at ClarityRx, we love plant-based skincare. Results aren’t created with synthetic, harsh ingredients made in a lab. Rather, beautiful skin comes from nourishing, hydrating, skin-balancing ingredients that support healthy skin function. What better way to do that than with naturally sourced, pharmaceutical-grade and plant-based ingredients?
One of the reasons we love plant-based ingredients is it gives us, and you, confidence in what we’re applying to the skin. One of the biggest benefits of plant-based skincare is potent and non-irritating ingredients. If you’re not sold just yet, here’s three benefits of making the switch to plant-based skincare.
1. Hydrate and soothe the skin.
Here’s the thing about plants. They’re really good at retaining water. That’s why plant-based ingredients are so great at helping your skin retain moisture. We love hyaluronic acid, squalane, and aloe for their naturally hydrating abilities
that also help soothe irritated skin. Long term, effectively hydrated skin means improved barrier function that helps prevent harmful external elements from penetrating the skin.
Try: Daily Dose of Water™ Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum. This hydrating serum also functions as an anti-aging serum thanks to its ability to hydrate and plump out fine lines and wrinkles in the skin.
2. Protect against skin damage.
Plants are the ultimate skin protectors. They are built to withstand, and thrive, in direct sunlight. The properties that allow them to survive in these conditions also create highly effective skin protective formulations. Antioxidants naturally found in plants, such as L-ascorbic acid and vitamin E, protect against free radical damage that causes premature signs of aging and discoloration.
Try: Take Care Daily™ Antioxidant Red Tea Serum. This concentrated antioxidant serum provides optimal environmental protection to combat signs of aging and promote skin health.
3. Improve the skin’s microbiome.
Over time, due to environment, diet or age, the skin’s microbiome can become off-balance. The microbiome is made up of tiny bacteria that maintain overall healthy skin function. Remember, your skin is your largest organ that serves an invaluable purpose to the health of the body. Nurturing the microbiome is one way to nurture your overall health, while also maintaining a healthy glow. Plant-based ingredients help nurture the skin’s microbiome by supporting a healthy balance of the right types of bacteria that live on the skin’s surface. Probiotics, for example, are a great way to do that.
Try: Live + Be Well™ Probiotic + Pink Himalayan Salt Mask. Rich in lactobacillus probiotics, this mask strengthens the skin’s defense system and optimizes hydration and circulation.
