Nontoxic Alternatives To Retinoids

Nontoxic Alternatives To Retinoids

Whether your expecting, breastfeeding or looking for healthier options in skin care, know that you can ditch the retinoids and find some great alternatives.

Did you know that retinoids, found in many skin care products, aren’t labeled as “Retinol Products”? Carefully look at the labels to find ingredients like retinyl palmitate which is a retinoid vitamin-A derivative and make sure you know what you are buying.

For a natural approach to skin care here are some proven suggestions.

Acne: consider using glycolic acid an acid derived from sugar cane juice. It’s one of the most effective and fast acting exfoliators available.

Pigmentation: for combating pigment anything with vinegar and onion is helpful. The onion does the brightening, and the vinegar is used to both cleanse and brighten the skin.

Fine Lines:  use an oil rich in vitamin A beta-carotene. One of the best oils out there is Moringa seed oil which is also high in hydrating oleic fatty acids.

Why not try a new, healthier approach to skin care today!
