people are more interested about what they should apply to their face, but I think people should be more interested about what they shouldn't apply to their faces.
In times when beauty hacks and DIY, skincare tips are flooded over social media, it is important to know what is good and what can be harmful to your face.
The skin on the face is more sensitive than the skin on the rest of the body. The skin on the eyes and lips are thinner and even more sensitive and fragile. This is the reason why you need to be more careful about the kind of products you are using on your face.
The following are the things expects suggests that you should never use on your face
1: Body lotions
body lotions are usually thicker and have more fragrances than moisturizers meant for face. Body lotions when used on the face, can lead to breakouts and allergic reactions. You should use only fragrances -free and oil - free moisturizers on your face.
You all must have seen tutorials that suggest applying sugar scrubs on your body as it works as an excellent exfoliant. But using sugar on your face can scratch the sensitive skin and even cause a scratch.
3 Lemon juice
citrus fruits like lemon can cause irritation on the skin, psoralem is a chemical in lemon which can make you extremely sensitive to light. On the skin being exposed to the sun, it can even cause blisters. Hence, you must avoid applying lemon juice on your face. According to dermatologist Dr kiran Lohia, lemon can cause skin rashes and burns.
many people apply toothpaste on the zits on the face, but that is a big no-no says Dr Kiran. It can cause redness and burns on the affected area, she says.
5: Secret ingredients
Never use products that do not list their ingredients, Boca Raton dermatologist Jeffery Fromowitz explained, " you must know what you are putting on your skin" otherwise you wouldn't know if you're allergic to any of the ingredients until trying it. Plus, even if you're not allergic, you could be lathering your face with an ingredient you shouldn't even be putting on your face.
When in doubt, see your dermatologist. I hope you will remember this and will not use these ingredients on your face again
