THE SKIN YOU'RE IN: WHY IT AGES
Over the last decade I’ve noticed a disturbing trend with the clients visiting our holistic skin clinic – irritated and sensitive skin. In the 1980s, only 25% of the population characterized themselves as having irritable skin. Today, one out of two persons classifies their skin as sensitive, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
At Naturopathica, our beauty secret is in our advanced formulas and treatment regimens that rapidly address inflamm’aging – chronic inflammation that leads to premature aging. The cause of this is two-fold: constant exposure to irritating ingredients and changes in the environment.
Most people don’t realize that two of the most widespread preservatives used in cosmetics – Parabens and Urea, are also the leading allergens in skin care (along with a few others such as Propylene Glycol, the sunscreens Oxybenzone and PABA, as well as fragrance).*
What’s disturbing is that these irritating ingredients are still commonly used in many of the major leading skin care brands, even those labeled as natural or for sensitive skin.
The truth about aging well is that it does not rely on a miracle ingredient or “hope in a jar.” In fact, the most effective method eliminates the overlooked phenomenon of inflamm’aging – chronic inflammation that leads to premature aging. It simply makes sense if you consider the physiology of the skin.
Our age defense strategy merges the natural healing properties of plants that protect and restore your skin with the latest clean cosmeceuticals to deliver visible results.
It’s not just common sense. It’s a better beauty™
