6 Harmful Skincare Ingredients + Their Replacements

6 Harmful Skincare Ingredients And Their Replacements

Skin, being the outermost covering of our body, is not only the largest body organ but is also the one which is almost always exposed to dust, dirt and harmful infections. Although a number of skincare products are available today which claim to make our skin healthy, certain ingredients can have adverse effects on skin such as pre-mature aging, acne, hormonal imbalance etc.

Here are 6 ingredients that you must completely avoid are replace with their healthier options:

1. Triclosan - It is used as an anti-bacterial agent and has often been found to be the reason behind endocrine disruption and skin irritation.
Replacement: Essential oils such as citrus, lavender etc. should be used in place of triclosan, which are much healthier and safer to use.

2. Paraben - It is mainly used in skin care products as a preservative and is found to be the major cause for estrogen disruption, eventually leading to breast cancer and various reproductive disorders.
Replacement: In place of paraben-containing products, use the ones with substances such as Benzoic Acid, Sorbid Acid and Sodium Benzoate.

3. Mineral Oil - It is mainly used in moisturizers and disrupts the detoxifying process of the skin, ultimately causing the occurrence of acne, skin irritation and early aging.
Replacement: Mineral oil hinders the normal ‘breathing’ process of the skin and should be replaced by butters and cold pressed oils.

4. BHA and BHT - Both are used as preservatives and are leading causes of endocrine disruption.
Replacement: Tocopherol is the best and safest replacement for both BHA and BHT.

5. Retinol - It is basically used to prevent the signs of aging and is a form of vitamin A which has a peeling effect on the skin. This leads to an increased skin sensitivity and has also been found to be harmful for pregnant women.
Replacement: Hyaluronic acid and aloe vera can be used in place of Retinol.

6. Propelyne Gycol - It is basically used for the maintenance of moisture in skin care products and has often been seen to cause skin irritation.
Replacement: Use products containing sorbitol or glycerin in place of those containing propelyne gycol.

How to remove pimples and black spot from face. Natural Solution to Remove pimples and black spot from face.
These are the methods to treat fastly pimples & black spots: • Imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

First of all clean the gut by herbal combos. Then application of cream accumulated over raw milk and mixed with saffron, curcumin powder, barberis aristata, rubia cordifolia to be applied daily over blemishes. Washed lentil dal pack (soak at night, make paste in the morning and apply on face, keep for 20 - 25 minutes, wash. Do thrice a week); oral blood purifier tab/decoction - these will act very effectively to lighten and remove blemishes.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.
