WHAT WOULD COSMETOLOGISTS NEVER PUT ON THEIR FACE?
And we shouldn't do it
Silicone clogs the pores and blocks the flow of oxygen. If the skin is prone to rashes, it attracts bacteria that cause imperfections. Ingredients that should be avoided on the label are cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, dimethicone, phenyl, and trimethicone.
Scrubs and exfoliants containing abrasive particles (such as crushed pips) are taboo for the face. When in contact with delicate skin, they can cause inflammation, peeling, post-inflammatory pigmentation, and dilation of blood vessels.
When it comes to facial hair removal, the best solution is to choose a laser or tweezers. Hot wax along with the hairs removes the upper layer of skin. And if you regularly use exfoliants or products based on retinol, you can get blisters, burns and scars.
Synthetic perfumes are made from potentially dangerous chemicals such as benzene, aldehydes and toluene, which cause allergic reactions, irritation and redness when applied to the face and eye area.
For decades, there has been a myth that toothpaste supposedly dries rashes. But in fact, it only causes irritation! Instead, try applying to the pimple a product based on benzoyl peroxide, which kills bacteria and reduces inflammation.
Exfoliating brush and a sponge made of loofahs
The face skin should be exfoliated very gently. The top layer peels off naturally, so hard tools such as an exfoliating brush are not needed, and can cause microtraumas, irritation, and, in the worst case, scarring. And the loofahs sponge, due to its structure, is very susceptible to the accumulation of bacteria in it after each application. Conclusion: wash your face with your hands and a delicate cleanser.
If you suffer from dry skin, any alcohol formula will only make the situation worse. As a tonic, choose amalmide, which contains tannins, a type of polyphenol that makes it a natural astringent to reduce sebum production. It also relieves inflammation and soothes irritations.
