Alcohol Free Beauty is important to people who have sensitive, dry or dehydrated skin. Alcohol is an astringent that is used to cleanse the skin. Used in high concentrations, it can be dehydrating an damaging.
Alcohol isn’t always a bad thing though. It’s used to preserve products and help ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin. Many effective acne treatments use alcohol to dry out whiteheads. Alcohol in the ingredient list isn’t an indicator of how good the product is.
As a general rule avoid skincare with alcohol in the top 3 ingredients. These products are probably drying and dehydrating. If your skin is especially sensitive, you may want to try Alcohol Free Skincare.
