If one day you decided to use only natural products to pamper your skin, maybe you got unpleasant skin reactions such as a rash, a dry skin or an oily skin, shedding, red patches or even large pores. Is is normal? Indemne explains you this phenomenon!
Natural products and skins reactions : a blessing in disguise
Don’t worry, if you notice some of these reactions on your skin after replacing your ancient products by natural products, it’s a good sign! These various reactions are just the proof that your skin is finding its balance and is being cleaned up.
By using numerous products which often contain some paraffin, your skin has broken the habit to do its work.
“Paraffin is a very highly refined mineral oil used in cosmetics and for medical purposes. It stems from a non-vegetable (mineral) source, particularly a distillate of petroleum”.
Paraffin is easy to work, cheap and it stores well. For these reasons, they are often used in the cosmetics industry.
Paraffin remains on the surface of the skin and creates a kind of barrier which protects the epidermis of external influences. The issue: Paraffin prevents the skin from breathing and slows the absorption of the other components of the product by creating an occlusive film on the skin – an advantage in the composition of lipsticks and eye shadows, but a drawback in the composition of face creams and other skincare for this area.
Why is it a drawback?
It’s simple: once the skin is covered with this occlusive film, it feels protected and has the feeling it needn’t work anymore. And so, as paraffin already has the protector role, the skin produces less sebum.
When you stop using industrial products and start using natural products, your skin feels disturbed and lets you know it! Dry skin, eczema, rash…sometimes, you’re not spoiled!
What about my dream of having a perfect skin?
This rebound effect doesn’t last forever! Depending on your skin problems, you skin type, your diet, and also your state of stress, your skin will find its balance in a more or less long time. As a general rule, it takes 4 weeks; the renewal time of the stratum corneum (the outer part of the epidermis including the surface of the skin). However, for the more intolerant skin, it can last 3 months.
Good news: If you are a quite zen person and if you have a healthy diet (a lot of fruits and vegetables, enough water, little red meat, few industrial foods), you’ll be more likely to avoid this rebound effect.
Here you are! You can’t say natural products weren’t made for you anymore…everyone can take advantage of their benefits. You just need to be a little bit patient!

It’s spring! We all want to go out and enjoy the good weather…but the pollen too! This year, spring began earlier, same with pollen allergies. For all people who face this problem, don’t worry, you’re not alone. 30 years ago, 5% of the population suffered from pollen allergy. Today 30% are concerned!
“Pollen is a fine yellowish powder that is transported from plant to plant by the wind, by birds, by insects or by other animals. The spread of pollen helps to fertilize plants — and can mean misery for seasonal allergy sufferers.”

Allergic people can feel numerous symptoms: sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, watery eyes, itchy throat and eyes, wheezing…
