The Best Clean Skincare Products to Try if You’re Over 40

Dr. Sheila Farhang was featured in Martha Stewart’s article, ‘The Best Clean Skincare Products to Try if You’re Over 40’. Here is an excerpt from the article, ‘The solution is (relatively) simple: Stock your routine with clean products—but do so carefully. Since there isn’t a tried-and-true definition of “clean” skincare (or a regulatory board that distributes the label, for that matter, explains Dr. Sheila Farhang), board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick says that you need to use discretion when you shop. Instead, look for products packed with powerful, but safe natural actives if you’re interested in a greener routine. “Many brands that consider themselves ‘clean’ are often free of ingredients such as parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones, formaldehydes, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, and more,” Dr. Garshick explains of this vague beauty category. Dr. Farhang adds not to equate paraben- or preservative-free, however, with good for you (“Without preservatives, our skin care products can grow bacteria, fungi, and other sorts of nasty stuff that cause bad things to happen such as infections and skin reactions,” she says). Instead, take a scientific approach and surf the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG’s) SkinDeep Database for ingredient safety before you buy.’
