The 10 Products You Need to Get in on the Hypoallergenic Beauty Trend
By Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director |
Hypoallergenic beauty products are becoming more sought-after each year—Pinterest, specifically, has seen a lift in searches for these products and more than 70 percent year-over-year growth. Ingredients like parabens, sulfates, fragrances and artificial colorings can be harsh on these skin types, making them more prone to redness, breakouts and clogged pores, and consumers are becoming increasingly aware of this, especially those with allergy-prone and sensitive complexions. These 10 products—everything from mascara and bronzer to body scrub and shampoo—promise to be gentler on skin, and really deliver.
