Why Should Not Apply These Four Products In Your Face (PHOTOS)

To avoid unwanted breakouts, irritation, or allergic reactions, make sure never to swipe any of the products below on your gorgeous face. And of course, if you’re reading this and just did coincidentally use one of the below items on your face, take a breather, clean your face, and you’re going to be fine. Reach out to your dermatologist if you have additional concerns.

1. Body Lotion

According to Bank, "The skin on our faces is much thinner than other parts of the body. Body lotions tend to be thicker and contain more fragrances than facial moisturizers that can lead to allergic reactions and breakouts. To make sure your skin is maintaining a healthy balance of moisture and to prevent any breakouts make sure to use an oil-free and fragrance free facial moisturizer."

2. Hairspray

"A lot of people use hairspray to help set their makeup in a pinch," says Bank. "However, hairspray contains alcohols, which can strip the skin of moisture. It can also clog your pores and lead to irritation and acne flare-ups."

3. Sugar

"Although this ingredient might be great for quick DIY scrubs for other parts of the body," Bank says, "using sugar as an exfoliant on the face can actually scratch and abrade the skin. Avoid using products with hard shaped particles as they can cause microscopic tears in the skin and lead to breakouts."

4. Baking Soda

"Baking soda has high alkaline levels which can diminish the pH balance on our faces and lead to really dry skin," shares Dr Bank. "The pH in our skin is designed to act as a barrier and keep bacteria out. When this pH balance is disrupted, it can cause your face from being able to regulate its natural pH balance and lead to breakouts."
