How Plant-Based Skin Care Products Can Help With Your Allergies
Plant-based Skin Care
When is the last time you really thought about the ingredients in your skincare products?
Think about it.
Most of the time, we are more concerned about how quick a product works than how our body will react to the ingredients in the product. This common mentality can be potentially dangerous especially to those who have to deal with allergies.
Not many people know this, but if you've ever experienced redness and/or flaking after applying a new skin care product, there is a very strong possibility that your body is reacting to an ingredient it's not used to.
And because there isn't necessarily a legal term for the words "organic" and/or "natural" - confused consumers often find themselves purchasing products containing non-synthetic ingredients that can be found in nature but are equally harmful.
So we've decided to fill you in on the basics and let you know why plant-based skin care can help with these kinds of allergies. Let's talk.
Is Plant-Based Skin Care The Same As Natural Skin Care?
Stores are jam-packed with skin care products labeled in luring words that attract consumers. Let's take the word "natural" for example. It seems like every product nowadays is natural.
And ever since the release of the popular film, What The Health, there has been a drastic rise in the purchasing of natural products. But what a lot of consumers don't realize is that "natural" and "plant-based" are not the same.
Contrary to popular belief, just because an item is labeled "natural" or "organic" doesn't necessarily mean it's healthier. In other words, just because something is "natural" doesn't mean you're body won't have a reaction to it.
According to the National Eczema Organization, over 30 million Americans deal with some form of dermatitis and that number is only rising as time goes by. Consumers are flooding doctor's offices with complaints of rashes, itchy skin, and swollen eyes because their perception of "natural" means it's only coming from the earth.
Plant-based skin care, on the other hand, accurately reflects a skin care line that is based on foods such as vegetables, fruits, and legumes. Not only is this the more "earthy" option - but it excludes the harsh the chemicals that are usually included in "natural" skin care products.
I Don't Have Sensitive Skin. Is Plant-Based Skin Care Still Beneficial For Me?
As invincible as you think you might be, a plant-based skin regimen is something you should still consider. Just because you're not experiencing a reaction doesn't mean it won't happen and always keep in mind is that no one is ever born with allergies.
Just like any other reaction, it develops over time. So even if you come across a natural product low in allergenicity, if you're skin is exposed to it long enough, don't be surprised if you begin to develop a reaction to it.
Because plant-based skin products are centered around foods that you're already used to (and more importantly, aren't afraid to consume) - these products are going to be the ultimate staple when it comes to your skin.
What To Be Aware Of
If you don't want to put a damper on your beauty regimen because of your sensitive skin, there are a couple of things that you should look out for before trying a new skincare routine.
Usually, when you think of the scent related to plants (or anything natural), you don't automatically associate it with a strong cologne/perfume-like scent. That's unnatural. And according to Time.com, perfume-scented products can hold up to 10,000 chemical ingredients.
