Being "healthy" is most often defined by our diets, whether we’re drinking enough water or getting more fruits and vegetables on our plates. We spend a lot of money on only buying from the organic foods section, and spiralizing veggies in hopes to recreate healthy versions of our favorite meals. While we spend all this time and money on our clean, natural diets, we neglect to address the health aspect of the non-food related things we consume every day. The most common thing we tend to let slip from our minds when thinking of health is our skincare products. What you put on your body should be just as important as what you put into it, so here’s a list of 5 natural skincare brands Dermatologists love.
AngelLift made their name on Shark Tank a few years back when Lori agreed to partner up with them. Lori loved the brand's technological approach to natural skincare. Their goal is to offer women painless and natural skincare treatments and products using innovative technology and chemical free ingredients. Their top-selling product is a removable facial lift that reduces and helps prevent lines and wrinkles around the mouth. These strips, called "Dermastrips" are a natural alternative to chemical injections and fillers. The science here is based on pressure to simply and effectively lift out lines and is as easy to use as teeth whitening strips. These Dermastrips are made of a surgical-grade hydrogel, which is BPA free, paraben free and hypoallergenic. We love how easy they are to use and incorporate into our routine.
This next brand was founded in 2014 with the goal to provide “Clean, conscious, and accessible skincare that empowers women.” The founder, Priscilla Tsai, started out with a personal mission to treat her own extremely sensitive and acne-prone skin when prescription treatments failed her. To take control of her skin she began experimenting with natural food-based products, mainly coconut oil. Seeing amazing improvements, she then began concocting her own recipes in her kitchen. The most raved about product is the Cocokind Chlorophyll mask. It detoxes, boosts complexion, and reduces inflammation. This mask is packed with chlorophyll, organic spirulina, wheatgrass and chlorella and provides an antioxidant punch that help clear, soothe, and brighten skin. So effective and so versatile, it’s hard not to love this green mask. Add water, facial oils, yogurts, milks, or other carriers to your mask and enjoy your glowing skin.
