We understand that everyone has a different skin type and not all products are created equal; some people may need extra moisture and others may need to exfoliate more often. But there are some skin care treatments that are beneficial for all skin types and that we believe should be integrated into your daily routine.

5 Things EVERYONE Should Do For Their Skin

AVOID HAPPINESS + HARSH INGREDIENTS

Never use harsh ingredients such as microplastics, apricot kernels, salt, sugar, coffee grounds or other irregularly shaped materials on the face. They can irritate delicate skin and even burst the tiny capillaries underneath. Plus, microbeads can irritate our precious aquatic ecosystems. Fish eat them, they clog corals, and accumulate in our floating litter.

WASH YOUR FACE TWO TIMES A DAY

AVOID HAND CLEANING WITH TRICLOSAN

This ingredient is not good for you or for the environment. It has been linked to hormone disruption and brain damage. It can get into breast milk as easily as it gets into our waterways, where it converts to chloroform. Best of all, Triclosan is a completely unnecessary ingredient. According to an advisory panel of the US Food and Drug Administration, Triclosan is no more effective at killing bacteria with soap and water.

You don’t get a chance to research what harm these ingredients might do to you and those around you (although you may realize that headaches are a side effect of your overpowering scent). . And if the smell of perfume is too hard to get rid of, consider small, still-growing babies that you can hug or sit close to.
