You pay attention to the foods you choose to fill your body with, opting for healthy, nourishing choices that feed your cells with an array of nutrients to ensure you stay healthy from the inside out.
So why shouldn’t just as much attention be paid to the ingredients you decide to use externally on your skin?
Does it really make sense to use toxin-laden ingredients when you would never consider eating processed, chemically-laden foods? We think not!
Everything you eat has an impact on your external appearance, and everything you apply externally has some kind of impact on your internal being.
If you’re only applying clean, non-toxic, nutrient-rich ingredients to your skin, then you have nothing to stress about, but if you’re using chemicals on a daily basis, then you may want to reassess your skincare choices. Using the right ingredients are just as important for your health as they are for your skin so choose wisely.
Here are our top anti-inflammatory ingredients that will help to reduce external inflammation for happier, more radiant skin while never putting your health at risk.
