Breakout Prone Skin? It Might Be Time to Reevaluate Your Hair Care

Breakout Prone Skin? It Might Be Time to Reevaluate Your Hair Care

It’s 2018: food is medicine, health is wealth, and knowledge is power. One issue many of us are still dealing with is breakout-prone skin. Acne is not just a teenage issue. According to a recent New York Times article “the rare woman without acne is notable.” Even celebrities like Kendall Jenner have been open about their struggles. So why is it that  a solution to clear skin still elude many of us? Skin issues can be soul deep and even though others may not notice, at times it’s all we see. One surprising cause of breakouts might actually be something we can control: our hair care products. 

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and is exposed to all our daily habits. Thanks to glossy magazines, our favorite bloggers, and dermatologists, we know choosing quality skin care can make a big difference. But what about everything else? How we wash and style our hair, sleep, and talk on the phone can all impact our complexion based on what they leave behind. Yes, you read that correctly. Think about it—what touches skin impacts skin. Take hair care for example. As we lather up our shampoo, it slips down our faces, chests and backs. As we rinse, product then washes down our body and over our skin. 

In fact, hair care, by design, leaves a residue — even after we think it’s been rinsed off. When shampoo, conditioner and styling products promise to leave your locks shiny, manageable and enviable, they do so in part because of what they leave behind. But here’s the rub: that same residue that is taming your tresses could also be clogging your pores. And we all know that clogged pores can lead to breakouts! Many ingredients, including organic and natural ones, can clog pores and lead to breakouts. And beyond individual ingredients, how they interact as a system can also create the perfect conditions to clog your pores.   

It’s no wonder that so many adult women are waking up to breakouts!  It took a Stanford and Harvard-trained dermatologist to see the connection that was hidden in plain sight and create skin-caring hair care.
