Some components in cosmetics contain refined products, dyes and other chemicals that can harm your health and skin. To protect yourself, learn to understand the language of labels.
– Ingredients are always listed in descending order. The higher the percentage of the substance in the composition, the earlier it is mentioned. So do not be surprised if the miracle extract, which is in the name of the cream, will be in one of the last places.
“Mineral oil, which may seem like a useful ingredient, is actually a refinery product. It, of course, softens the skin and retains moisture in it, but also helps accumulate toxins in the skin and clog pores, because of which over time the skin can not fully perform all of its restoring and protective functions and becomes weak and sensitive.
– Do not use products with a pronounced perfume odor. As a rule, the formula of the fragrance is not disclosed, and the word fragrance can hide dozens of chemicals.
– Be sure to pay attention to the expiration date. Not only to check the freshness of the product. If the manufacturer offers to store the gel or cream in the open for more than 6 months, most likely, the content of preservatives in it is above the optimal level. And certainly, this tool cannot be called natural.
