effective plant-based, clean beauty products in every service
why clean beauty?
it’s about avoiding ingredients that cause inflammation
Inflammation can be defined as the natural response of a healthy immune system in its attempt to restrain pathogens and free radicals from entering the body. Although inflammation is a necessary measure in the process of repairing the body, continuous inflammation leads to premature aging and can lead to chronic diseases as it ultimately alters your DNA.
In severe cases of chronic inflammation, fine lines and wrinkles start appearing sooner than they should. As a result, the skin starts to lose its elasticity along with its moisture content, rapidly leading to dry and dull skin (backed by science).
Conventional beauty products frequently contain inflammatory ingredients that have been linked to causing cancer, developmental +
reproductive toxicity, ecotoxicology, allergies, and immunotoxicity. Clean beauty is an unregulated term. But the beauty industry uses it to mean products that avoid these potentially harmful ingredients. Which is exactly what we do at Holiday.
Too long; didn’t read: Your skin cells can’t look their sparkly, best selves when consistently exposed to inflammatory ingredients found in conventional beauty because the sub-clinical inflammation damages your DNA and your skin’s ability to reproduce bright, youthful cells.
Don't worry -
we don't have a purity complex
don’t feel like you need to already have the perfect routine to come to Holiday. you certainly don’t!
We’re happy to meet you where you are and help guide you. We all weigh pros and cons to make decisions on incorporating healthy habits. Maybe it’s just one product that you switch to try clean beauty from your pharmacy-based product routine. Maybe you use all clean beauty but love getting Botox injections. Maybe you eat organic but just gotta roll through the drive-thru for a shake when the temperature breaks 95 degrees.
We’re not perfect either 🙂 We support you wherever you are!
