Having clear skin is an undeniable confidence booster. Not having to glob on makeup to cover annoying imperfections is the goal for many, if not all. The downfall is that there is no secret formula for instant results. Plus, everyone has unique skin. Science has separated skin types into five classifications; normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive. There are the essentials that any of these skin types can use, which incorporate a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer (SPF preferred). However, many different brands offer the same products, some even with additives to seem more elite and effective. Picking the right step-by-step products is overwhelming and expensive for trial and error. Fortunately, SkinBySyd’s CEO Sydney Blank set out on a mission to develop a clean, vegan skincare brand for everyone. Her brand is formulated to perfection with all-natural, paraben-free, fragrance-free ingredients to ensure no irritation.
“I did not want people with sensitive skin or allergies to miss out on my products, so I was adamant about making my products from natural ingredients,” Blank said. “You can read on the website, SkinbySyd.com, what each product is formulated with, as well as emphasizing what the products are not made with, which is equally as important information that people want to know. As soon as people see, we are a transparent skincare company listing all ingredients and not leaving anything out plus a vegan line they are sold.”
RESEARCH & BALANCE
As a certified esthetician and model, Blank is devoted to finding the right balance of ingredients to bring about immaculate skin. She is an avid researcher, ceaselessly buying into new raving brands to investigate why they become so highly demanded. Blank even keeps a dermatologist on call to find out about new treatments and ingredients hitting the market with the goal that she can be one of the first to test them out. She is passionate about providing her customers with the absolute best version of a new product.
Blank has recently been experimenting with Manuka Honey, a natural substance that is more advanced than regular honey because of its antibacterial properties. She is already working in collaboration with a Kuwait company to cultivate a perfect product at an affordable price.
“Releasing products that are clean, effective, and proven to work backed by years of testing are the products you should ultimately trust to use on your skin,” Blank said.
SELF-TESTED FOR LONG-TERM EFFICIENCY
SkinBySyd is unlike other brands because it’s basically a one-woman show. Blank does everything on her own, even testing products for months to examine long-term effects and potency. Also, just because her brand is vegan does not mean the products are less powerful. Natural ingredients are more beneficial because they do not strip layers of skin nor clog pores. Vegan substances properly penetrate the skin, unlike formulated acids. Also, whether classified with sensitive skin or not, all skin needs gentle care.
So, before heading to a beauty store to buy brands, your favorite celebrity uses or purchases the most expensive products because expensive apparently means better; think again. Vegan brands will never harm the skin and are a great place to start when it comes to the essentials.
