Consumers have a tough job trying to find their way through a sea of marketing mumbo jumbo, paid shout outs from content creators, and pointless fear pushed by the “natural is better” community.
The truth is, there isn’t a whole heck of a lot out there that is designed to steer you in the right direction. You may find some recommendations from peers or maybe an MD (who may not be well read in skin care outside of prescriptive problems), but really finding a source with solid information that isn’t trying to sell you product is close to zero.
This is precisely why I am able to make blog post like this. This is the truth based on science, not marketing, and if you put these steps into play, you will start having more “good skin days”.
I’m not one of those vegans that thinks I can bully society into bending into what I think is more ethical and a better fit for my personal lifestyle.
I’m not here to demonize anybody or any certain company. Really, I would love to have all of these brands that aren’t cruelty free to be on the other side of my list in the future. I would not be mentioning these companies and brands if they did not have something to offer to the beauty table.
When that day comes (not holding my breath), I will be the first one singing their praises, front row center with bells on.
