What not to look for in beauty products

What Not To Look For In your Beauty products.

Here we look at two commonly used ingredients used in beauty products that can be counter productive with the results you as a consumer are trying to achieve.

1. Sodium Laureth Sulfate

This ingredient is very popular among the beauty product world. It can be a harsh chemical that can cause breakouts. Especially if it is found within the first ten ingredients of the beauty product. How it works is when it strips your skin of its natural oils. This then allows your skin to overcompensate on sebum (one of your natural oils) making the skin oily which cases breakouts eventually.

2. A Scented or Fragranced  ingredient.

Any type of heavily scented product can be a skin irritant. Depending on how sensitive your skin type is, products with fragrance added in the first 10 ingriedients is what should be looked out for.
