Why would anyone want to use their hand lotion or body moisturizer on their face you may ask. Well, out of convenience is my guess. Like my husband, who used the Sukin Hydrating Body Lotion I passed him and applied it all over, including his face! And the result? Clogged pores and a mini eruption of pimples. In fact, he didn’t even realized the reason until I questioned him.
Since speaking to Eric of Bud Cosmetics last week, I started looking at the ingredient list of all my natural and organic skin products again to find if they contain any silicones. *Gasp* I actually found it in Organic Surge Body Lotion which I use sometimes! I haven’t review this product yet but I will in time. So what exactly are silicones and what’s wrong with them?
Interestingly, I noted that a few ladies at a forum I lurk have been talking about ordering hydrosols to make clay mask or even for toning purposes. So what are these?
Hydrosols are also known as distillates and are byproducts from steam distilling, created while extracting essential oils. Apparently, they are also known as floral waters and the highest quality of hydrosols come from the distillers who steam the floral and plant material strictly to produce a hydrosol. Witch hazel is an example.
I mentioned awhile ago that I’ve been having problems wearing lip glosses and lipsticks. My lips became very dry especially under air-conditioned environment and I had these white clumpy stuff from whatever I’m wearing on my lower lips. Needless to say, I looked awful. At first I thought it was the ingredients from my lip glosses and lipsticks causing some allergies but apparently it was not. The issue was the dead skin on my lips which I never thought of removing!
