I have an exciting app that I use and I want to share with you all! It is probably my favorite app and has helped my skin so much! It’s called SkinSAFE. How it works is you scan a bar code on a product and it tells you if it is free of the top skin allergens. If the app doesn’t have a particular product in it’s database you then have the option to submit it. The SkinSAFE team will then review the ingredients and get back to you. There are different categories such as skin care, hair care, baby products, household, and makeup. I love this app so much that I work for it! It is something I strongly believe in so I am so grateful for the opportunity.
I love this app so much because before discovering it I had the WORST acne. I never had any teenage acne but once I got to be about 20 thats when it got bad. I thought I had dodged the acne phase but I was wrong! I tried so many different things to try and clear my skin up. I first saw a dermatologist but it didn’t seem to get any better and I just gave up hope. Over the years I then tried alternatives ways to try and clear my face up. I felt like I tried just about every over the counter acne wash and spot treatment. I also tried getting regular facials & chemical peels. That got to be expensive and didn’t see permanent results. I even went to see a naturopath to get tested for food allergies. I thought maybe certain foods were causing my acne. I stopped eating gluten & dairy for awhile and saw no results and it was extremely hard to avoid those two things. Bread & Cheese are pretty much my favorites!
Shortly after discovering this app I changed all my products to products that were ranked “top safe” on SkinSAFE. “Top safe” means they are free of the top allergens. I first changed the obvious which was my face wash & moisturizer. I then changed my shampoo & conditioner because I realized that when I shower those get on my face & back a little bit and you just can’t avoid it. I also changed my laundry detergent. My back would break out from time to time and this helped clear up my back. Also washing my bedding with allergen free detergent has helped with my face acne since I sleep with my cheek on my pillow. Overtime I changed my makeup products. Who knew that all these different products could be causing my acne?
To get you started on a few of my favorite products, I have uploaded pictures and links to where you can purchase these products. All these products are on the top safe list. They are also all pretty affordable. You don’t have to spend a fortune to have beautiful skin. Download the app and you can find many more!
Thank you Skin SAFE!
