Three Natural Skincare Lines for Spring

 We guzzle fresh juices and munch on lush salads. But what about food for our skin? The latest trend, that’s hopefully here to stay, is fueling the skin with natural, edible ingredients. For some of us, smearing avocado on our face or the sting of bee venom does not sound too appetizing. So here are three growing brands whose products pack revitalizing ingredients without any messy side effects.

Indie Lee

 After suffering from a brain tumor in 2009, Indie Lee set out on a mission to rid toxins from her everyday life. Realizing the number of chemicals that often goes into skin products, she decided to start there. Her namesake brand uses only all-natural ingredients in the forms of cleansers, oils, serums and more. The products use a bare minimum of elements, which are often fruits or florals. Fan favorites are the Squalane Facial Oil and the Rosehip Cleanser.

Pai Skincare

Designed for sensitive and allergy-prone skin, the brand is great for those who are wary of skin inflammation. The products have no parabens, alcohol, beeswax or other skin irritants such as propylene glycol. Featured ingredients are avocado, rosehip, and jojoba, which help to sooth and hydrate skin.

Juice Beauty

 

Available at Whole Foods, Juice is a more affordable option compared to the other higher end brands. Their products, which cover the gamut of skincare, makeup and hair care, use USDA Certified organic ingredients.  Each product packs in an average of seven naturally potent extracts, from the more exotic algae and jojoba to kitchen staples like carrot and apple.
