Change can be hard for the skin. Whether it’s traveling, a new sleep schedule, hormonal fluctuations or the shift in seasons, there’s a good chance your skin will have to go through a short period of adjustment. For many people, this adjustment period is less than pleasant as they experience breakouts, blackheads and redness where once their skin was happy and clear.
Though you can’t stop the inevitable ebb and flow of life, there are a few things you can do to help your skin adapt to change with ease and grace. RainShadow Labs provides consumers with a diverse list of products to choose from when it comes to skin care. Looking through our pre-formulated line is a great way to find something for your skin’s needs. While the following action steps are listed specifically for seasonal changes, they apply to all situations of necessary adaptation that you and your skin might encounter.
Preparing Your Skin for Seasonal Changes
Following is an easy to apply list of recommendations for you to follow when it comes to keeping your skin healthy during change.
Use adaptogens in your skincare: Adaptogens are private label skincare ingredients that support your skin’s natural ability to adapt to change and stress. These have been used for decades, from the Ancient Chinese to modern-day Americans. Your skin already has everything it needs to be resilient; adaptogens enhance it. These kinds of ingredients include Reishi mushroom and Astragalus, Jojoba oil and even things like plant peptides and silk protein amino acids.
Jojoba Oil is one of the most popular ingredients to use when it comes to skin care. It effortlessly moisturizes the skin through its high concentration of naturally occurring vitamin E and EFA’s. Jojoba oil also helps to balance oil production, whether your skin is too dry or too oily.
Keep it simple: While it can be tempting to add in more products, treatments and to touch your face while you are looking at yourself in the mirror, the more you let your skin be, the better. Over-stimulation is a surefire way to bother and disrupt your skin, making it harder and a less than pretty adaptation process. Instead, keep your hands off and perhaps even consider doing nothing for a day or two to really let your skin do its thing. Then, you can begin using your private label skincare products again.
Change it up: Different weather can require different products. If your summers are dry and super hot, then you will probably want to use a thin and nourishing moisturizer, or even a hydrating serum, instead of a standard lotion. If your skin is still really dry, especially on parts of your body like your legs, a body souffle would fit the bill because it’s a lighter and more effective moisturizer.
If you’re an avid outdoors fan and know your skin will be exposed to harsh elements during the summer or winter, then utilizing a protective private label skincare formula of some kind—be it a serum, cream or even mask—can help make sure your skin has the proper resources it needs to face the world, no matter the changes of season.
Should I Just Make My Own Private Label Products?
When it comes to making your own skincare, it can take a lot of work. And some people do that work willingly. They like making their own products by hand and aren’t deterred by the amount of time (and money) it takes to do so. With that said, it can still be incredibly hard to find enough time as a working adult to hand make your own skincare for your own line. And that’s where we come in.
If you are one of the many people who want to start their own skincare line and would like to do so with as much of a streamlined process as possible, then choosing to private label with a custom manufacturer is the way to go.
Where Should I Go For Private Label Custom Manufacturing?
When looking for a private label manufacturer, make there are a few things you should look for. First, make sure they have the capacity to product the type of products you want for your line. Especially if you are looking to include things like bar soaps or sheet masks in your product lineup. You also want to make sure that they have the kind of ingredients you want to work with, and that they will adhere to the kind of quality standards you would expect them to.
