Stay Away from These Types of Beauty Products as they Aren't Good for the Skin

Beauty products come in different types, but they all serve almost the same purpose.

These beauty products are ment for enhancing the general appearance of a person's skin and most of them promise to give positive results.

Women are the ones who take a bigger percentage of victims who use beauty products but men also are not to be left out.

Some of the beauty products are good and seem to interact with the skin in a positive manner, while others bring a threat or rather damages the skin.

In this article, I am going to talk more about beauty products that are not good for the skin, and they include;

1) Chalky makeup.

The biggest problem with chalky makeup is that it tends to clump in the oily areas of the skin and makes acne even worse. This can lead to skin irritation on the affected area.

scientists have revealed that, it is much better to use mineral powder which unlike chalky powder, reduces shine on a person's skin and leaves the skin with an even and matte finish.

2. Any alcohol based make-up.

As a rule in makeup, alcohol based products should be avoided at all cost.

Alcohol makes a person's skin dry in a very harsh way than even cold wind. Products that mostly have alcohol includes, make-up removers, setting spays and toners.

Alcohol can also dilate the pores on the skin which in turn leads to formation of whiteheads, blackheads and its long term use makes the skin to age faster.

People should rather use products rich in glycerin, hyaluronic acid and coconut oil.

3) Products that have sulphates.

Alcohol and sulphate based products, tend to have a similar effect on the skin but sulphates are even more harsh.

Sulphates bring about eczema, allergies, psoriasis and dryness of the skin.

The recommended ones are those that are sulphate free and it is advisable to look out for the sulphate free label in any beauty product before buying it.

4) Waterproof Mascara.

The fact that it really helps a person from sweating during summer, doesn't mean it is good for the skin.

Waterproof Mascara contains solvents, polymers, and silicones that are not skin friendly especially on the eyelash line.

These ingredients clog pores on the skin, weakens a person's natural eyelashes and leads to eyelid irritation.

It is better for one to buy a waterproof mascara with less harsh ingredients.
