Use fewer skincare products

Just picked up this very useful article from chosun.com titled “Want Beautiful Skin?  Try Using Fewer Skincare Products.”  According to it, mixing some products can actually cause more harm to our skin.   Something I believe many of us women are very much guilty of.

Lee Jong-min of Re&New Clinic, explained that some cosmetics contain ingredients that can lead to problems when combined. Many cosmetics contain preservatives to prevent decay and emulsifiers to help substances blend and stay smooth. If you’re not careful, Lee said, you can make skin problems worse by using too many products at once.

Organic skincare enhances well-being

If you’re concerned about what you eat and what you put on your body, you may like to know that natural ingredients work in harmony with your skin and body to enhance your body’s natural healing and regenerative capabilities.  Organic and natural ingredients are definitely more effective than the petroleum derivatives & waxes and synthetic fillers found in conventional skincare.

In fact, more and more research is emerging about the richer nutritional benefits of organically farmed products.  The term ‘organic’ refers to the method by which an ingredient has been farmed. 

Some whitening creams can harm you

Sure most of us want to be fair maidens.  That’s why there’s an active market for whitening beauty products.  Many of such products even guarantee to whiten our skin in a short period of time.  But in the quest for whiter skin, are we subjecting ourselves to unknown dangers by using products that contain harmful steroids?

For example, some face creams use an ingredient called hydroquinone, which is the biological equivalent of paint stripper.  While it will give you a brighter face almost immediately because it works by removing the top layer of skin, it will also increase the risk of skin cancer because as the body’s natural defence against infection and the sun is lost. 

The hazardous price of beauty

How many times have we heard of the phrase “there’s a price to pay for beauty”?  It’s true if we think about the amount we splurge on beauty products.  Fortunately, we always know the prices in advance.  There are however, some prices we really don’t want to pay but end up having to do so when we’re not careful.  I’m talking about the price of health hazards when it comes to the matter of beauty and style.   There are many of course, but here I’ll just focus on three fairly common ones.  The sort of errors we make or could possibly make without giving much thoughts to.
