Skincare Ingredient Cheat Sheets

Many times I will hand a patient a product and one of the first things they do is turn it around and look at the ingredients. Though I know that probably 95% of these people have no idea what most of them are, I stand there for a moment, and wait patiently until they’re done looking at these foreign words with a confused look on their face.

Before skincare ingredients became a second language for me, I was one of these people.

I have created a couple cheat sheets for you all to use next time you are in a situation where you have no idea what is on the back of the box.

These are great ingredients and you should look for these when purchasing your next skin care product.
Ingredients to avoid
These are ingredients you should try to avoid, or use in small amounts. It’s impossible to avoid every single bad ingredient, but you can do your part in limiting the amount of toxins your body is exposed to.

Hope this helps you all out !
