Alcohol may be on the ingredient list referred to as methanol, denatured alcohol, ethanol, or ethyl alcohol. The problem with alcohol is that it typically dries out your skin, so it isn’t safe for all skin types. It may cause excessive dryness and make your skin peel. We’ll help you choose skincare ingredients that are designed to boost the health of your skin instead of making it dry and flake.
Everyone seems to want coconut oil. We do love coconut oil, but it isn’t for people with oily or acne-prone skin. Coconut oil can clog your pores and enhance skin issues. We recommend skincare products with hyaluronic acid and squalene. You won’t have to worry about breakouts with these products.
Fragrances are just additives in skincare products. Think about the lotion that smells so good but never truly moisturizes your skin. A fragrance can cover potentially harmful ingredients. They can trigger rashes and allergies in people. It’s best to go for natural products without any fragrance or products with a sweet natural fragrance.
While we love an exfoliator, it’s important not to go overboard. Heavy exfoliators can harm your skin by sloughing it away. When you overdo scrubbing, you can strip your skin and irritate it. The only peeling you want on your face is products that accelerate natural peeling, not peeling from exfoliating the skin.
Homemade Face Masks
We get it, you can make a face mask for things in your refrigerator. Many people are out there telling you how to make skincare products from avocado, honey, and yogurt. The problem is that these masks are not professionally designed, so they can lead to inflammation and irritation. We only recommend skincare products that are specially tailored to your skin type.
Yes, some people use lemon on their skin due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial characteristics. We advise against putting lemon juice on your skin. When you apply lemon juice to your skin, it will usually irritate it and can cause chemical burns. You’ll notice a burning sensation of the lemon juice anyway. It’s just a very strange thing to try to put on your skin.
Sunscreen is one of the most important parts of your daily skincare. It’s vital to check the expiration date. When sunscreen expires, it cannot work as effectively to shade your skin. We can help you choose the best type of sunscreen for your skin.
The Importance of Knowing Your Skin
It’s so important to know about your skin. Our medical experts will help you understand what works best for your skin type. Many of these listed items will irritate your skin. If you have dry skin, you should never put anything on it that will make it even more dry. If you have oily skin, there is no reason to make it oilier. We customize skincare treatments to meet your specific needs.
