Should I Use Drugstore Skin Care Products?
If you’ve got your skin care regimen on lock, but run out without having backup ready, what do you do? You’ve probably popped into a drugstore in that pinch and bought some well-known brand with tons of commercials and magazine recognition, right?
Look, we’ve all at one point or another used a quick buy from a drugstore and didn’t think it was a big deal. Well, for your skin it is a big deal, and not in a good way. Let’s go over why drugstore brands are not all they’re cracked up to be, and why…
Drugstore Skin Care’s Dirty Laundry
A lot of people still rely on drugstore brands as their go-to skin care because of the expertly crafted marketing commercials for them that are on almost every tv channel and social media platform. They’re everywhere so it’s natural to be inclined to try them out. All the women look so flawless and glowy in the photos and videos, so it has to have some truth to it, right?
We’re sorry to say that it really doesn’t, and there’s a reason models and celebrities are the endorsers, not every day kind of people. And it culminates down to one part of the product: the ingredients list!
Ask yourself this: Do you see a real difference in your skin when you use Loreal products or Biore or Neutrogena? Or does it simply remove your makeup and oils and that’s it? Skin care is so much more than just removing the day’s grime from your face – and it’s time you knew how to take care of it properly – and that’s not with drugstore skin care.
Natural Skin Care vs. Most Other Skin Care Options
What many of the drugstore type products don’t tell you is what they are using (aside from the 2-3 ingredients they promote) that actually make up the majority of the contents of the jar, bottle, or other packaging. If you skim over the ingredients list for a vast quantity of skin care products, you won’t be able to pronounce or recognize almost all of them.
What do they do?
Do they help your skin?
The answer to both is: They are not good for your skin because they are synthetic fillers.
Beauty brands price their products over 50% of their cost value to make so they can earn decent profits from them. And to fill a decent size bottle or jar with product can be costly, therefore they add fillers and thickening agents to increase the volume of a small portion of actual ingredients. These fillers can contain chemicals, preservatives, and plastics. Do you want those applied to your skin with the hopes that maybe 4 ingredients out of over a dozen will help your pores?
There is a big movement in clean skin care, wherein natural skin care contains a high volume of active ingredients and very little filler. Xanthan gum is the most used thickening agent and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a brand that doesn’t contain it – it’s a carbohydrate and harmless, at least.
When you look at the back of product, you should know what most, if not all, of the ingredients are. Natural skin care sticks to true ingredients with all the benefits you hear about and achieve the actual results. The clean skin care route is becoming more and more aware, meaning you can stress less about researching the products in advance to purchasing them. The benefits of natural skin care far outweigh the handiness of a quick purchase at a drugstore.
