Many of the things I like the beautician, seem obvious. But to others, it turns out they do not manifest beforehand. For example, frequently asked questions here such a plan: "What's wrong with lanolin? His own use, even in children's creams! ". Or: 'Well, if I oily skin, then what's wrong with tonic with alcohol? ". And all is not as easy as it seemed to me time after time having to explain the same thing.
So I decided to just tell you about the ingredients of cosmetics that are worth to be avoided, and that it is high time to stop using, but … In general, what components in cosmetics should be avoided, why should it do and how they can be replaced: 1. Mineral oil (petrolatum, mineral oil, liquid paraffin): Highly petroleum products. Not absorbed into the skin, but make a film on its surface, not allowing the skin to breathe, leaving a feeling of heaviness and fatness. There is no good, and even more so, it's not healthy for the skin. May provoke allergies, blackheads, skin irritation.
Prevents the absorption of active ingredients of creams and serum. What can I use instead? * Vegetable oil is preferred. 2. Lanolin (lanilin): The fat is washed out of shorn fleece. Provokes severe allergies. Studies from FDA found the content of chemical insecticides in lanolin. In addition, the lanolin is very strong and unpleasant smell, which makes manufacturers use fragrances in cosmetics. The alternative – of silk amino acids and vegetable oils.
