We all work hard to raise health conscious, happy, confident, well adjusted daughters and we work hard to keep them safe (my daughter is doing volunteer work in Nicaragua right this minute….good heavens), but most of us don’t concern ourselves with what they are putting on their skin or on their bodies, especially as young teenagers.
I will never forget the years that my daughter was struggling with acne. I could feel for her pain. We eliminated sugar and wheat from her diet, went through many products such as Neutrogena (recommended by a doctor), Murad, Pro Activ of course, and finally a prescription retinoid.
What truly concerned me were the effects of the prescription cream. My daughter has Italian skin, a beautiful dark olive color and after using the cream for a few months, her skin began to thin and turn light. Needless to say, it freaked me out and I made her stop using it.
This was around the time I started researching all natural products and ordered so much product, I can’t even remember what actually helped. I do know however, if I had to raise her all over again, I would start her with all natural skin care for teens and all natural makeup from the moment she became interested, not only to help reduce skin irritations early on, but to eliminate chemicals entering her body that could potentially cause cancer in later years.
Unfortunately natural skin care for teenage girls barely existed then, if at all, until now.
Chemicals in skin care are sometimes the root of all skin irritations. Parabens, fragrance, and bismuth oxychloride, to name just a few, can cause allergic reactions and sensitive skin. Kim, the founder of Good For You Girls, knows this first hand.
As a veteran of the natural products industry Kim was very aware of the controversy of chemical based skin care. Both of her daughters had severe asthma and sensitive skin issues as babies so they never had any options to use anything but the cleanest products.
As her girls became teenagers, she realized that there were no safe products that were age appropriate for them. Girls today are bombarded with beauty products that are loaded with chemicals and synthetic ingredients.
Good For You Girls, specifically for young teens, was born. Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, and synthetic fragrance, Good For You Girls offers your daughters natural skin care that pampers and protects their skin the way mother nature intended.
Along with raising healthy, happy, self confident daughters, help your daughters form healthy habits and a great relationship with their bodies. Helping her find, safe and natural alternatives is not always easy and Good For You Girls is a great place to start!
