Chow down and munch on what winter skin regimes have to offer. From what we’ve learned in past skincare trials, mineral oil is baaaaaaaad. But why is it bad? Mineral Oil is a common ingredient in most skincare products on the market, mineral oil acts as a veil that lays over the skin. On the temporary level, it’s great for foundation, blush, contour. But on a long term playing field, it’s a pore clogging agent that spreads across the face.
So where do we go with that? Is mineral oil the all evil? Well that’s where these beauties come into play. We believe in products that skin can eat. Your skin is an organ and as such you need to use products that are healthy, made without parabens, or damaging ingredients. Find balms that make the skin jump for joy. That make your skin say, “yaaaaaaaaaas.”
