PostSubject: Four Things That Can Seriously Harm Your Skin   Thu Jul 03, 2008 6:11 pm

happy Harsh chemicals

Many skincare products and hair care products contain harsh chemicals that can seriously harm your skin and hair. For instance, many shampoos containing chemicals dry the hair and often cause dandruff. Some facial cleansers contain harsh ingredients that may destroy the enzymes that trigger absorption and lubrication and this often leads to oversensitive skin, dry patches, redness and even rashes. Skin care products containing harsh chemicals encourage your skin to produce more oil which can be a big problem for those with oily or combination skin. Those with sensitive or dry skin should always be very careful when buying new products ??� they shouldn??�t contain harsh chemicals. Look for products with natural ingredients, essential oils and vitamins. The most common harsh chemicals in skincare products and hair care products are: Propylene Glycol ??� common ingredient in face creams and lotions, it??�s known to cause skin allergies and to denaturate the skin??�s protein; Sodium Lauryl Sulfate / SLS/ - used in shampoos, soaps, cleansers, it??�s known to cause premature aging and poor air; Fragrances ??� used widely in skin and hair care products, a fragrance may lead to skin irritation, headache, rash and hyperpigmentation; Mineral Oil ??� widely used in facial cleansers and clarifying lotions, it??�s known to clog the facial pores and to enlarge them; Synthetic Colors ??� widely used in skin and hair care products to make them colorful, known to cause allergic reactions and serious rashes; Triethanolamine / TEA/ - used in skin care products to adjust the pH, known to cause allergies, dryness and eye irritation. Choose your skincare products very carefully to avoid unwanted reactions. Look for hypoallergenic products that contain no harsh chemicals. Mineral Makeup is an excellent choice for example. Remember: what you put on your skin is immediately absorbed into your blood stream.

Over cleaning your face

Excessive cleaning of the face is a common blunder. If you cleanse your face more than twice a day you can seriously harm your skin. Excessive cleaning can dry out your skin causing it to produce even more oil witch can be a big problem for those with oily or combination skin.
Many women, especially those with oily and acne-prone skin use products containing harsh chemicals, toners containing alcohol and even soaps to cleanse their face because they think that it is the only way to keep their skin clean but that is very, very wrong. Over cleaning your face may result in even greater oil production, more breakouts, rashes and irritations. Excessive facial cleaning and scrubbing cause inflammation, irritation, overdrying of the skin and can exacerbate acne.
Washing your face twice a day / in the morning and in the evening/ with the appropriate for your skin type products should be enough to keep your skin clean and healthy. There is no need to use products with harsh detergents to achieve radiant and clear skin. Find out what works best for you and never skip to cleanse your face. Use a mild facial cleanser and apply a toner, depending on your skin type and on the needs of your skin. Use a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and wear a sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays. If your skin feels taut and tight after you have cleansed your face this may be a sign that you may be overcleaning it.

UV rays
We have said this hundreds of times and we will say it again ??� sun radiation can seriously harm your skin. Wearing a sunscreen is a must, especially during the summer months. It??�s essential for preventing sun damage and lowering the risk of developing skin cancer. UV rays not only cause premature aging but also can cause skin cancer, freckles, brown spots, dull complexion and so on. It??�s essential to wear a sunscreen with SPF at least 15 everyday even during the winter months to protect your skin. Excessive sun exposure often leads to rashes, itchiness and dryness if your skin isn??�t protected. The sun radiation breaks down collagen and elastin production causing sagging of the skin and wrinkling. Wearing sunscreen now would definitely deliver benefits later in life.

Overuse of makeup

Overuse of makeup products can seriously harm your skin because most of the products contain harsh chemicals that may irritate your skin and cause allergic reactions. Cosmetics easily become contaminated with bacteria that may cause serious skin problems ??� rashes, redness, swelling, itching and even scarring. Overuse of makeup may even lead to premature aging as your skin cannot breathe naturally. If you wear makeup everyday it may clog your skin pores and cause a blackhead to form.

i've heard that MAC makeup is bad for your skin because it's really heavy and harsh. it's meant for photo shoots where the models wear it for only a few hours, but people who buy them in the department stores put it on for all day use, thus damaging their skin.
