Have you ever really looked at the ingredient list on your go-to skincare products? You might be really confused by the names you find on the labels -and if you’ve ever googled them, you may be even more confused...or gone down a rabbit hole on webMD.
Let's get familiar with reading the labels of what we put on our skin. After all, your skin is your largest organ, and its main job is to protect you, so it's about time you start protecting it.
We’ve compiled a list of the most popular ingredients in skincare as well as the top trendy ingredients you are probably already using but have no clue what they actually do. Knowledge is power, so start getting to know your labels.
Here are two of our favourite clean skincare beauty brands:
