Beauty Products You Might Want To Avoid

Most ladies like to spend money on the latest beauty products to ensure they always look stunning. However, there are some types of items that can cause a lot of damage, and so it’s sensible to avoid them in most instances. This article will draw your attention towards some of the things you’ll want to consider the next time you head out to your local beauty store to stock up on the latest brands. These items don’t cause problems for everyone, but they can have adverse effects, and that’s why you need to be careful. With a bit of luck, after reading the advice from this page, you will make better decisions in the future.



Perfumed moisturizers


Some people have no issues when it comes to using moisturizers that contain perfume for fragrance. However, those with sensitive skin can sometimes have an adverse reaction to those products. In many instances, they irritate the surface of the skin, and they can even encourage eczema to form. Those who have problems with those items tend to notice red blotches on their skin that can sometimes burn and cause pain. If you have any concerns about products of that nature, just be sure to read all the information on the packaging before using them on your skin. It’s always sensible to use a small amount in a “test area,” and then wait five minutes to see what happens before covering yourself in the cream.


Just be sure to look for moisturizers that say things like:


  • All natural ingredients
  • Perfume free
  • Fragrance free


Shampoo containing sulfate


There are lots of reasons you need to be careful when it comes to the shampoo you use on your hair. Firstly, some products contain ingredients that can damage the hair in many different ways. Items that use sulfate often require some research before you use them on your head. According to writers from sites like https://soundbodylife.com/best-sulfate-free-shampoos-list/, research proves that sulfate can strip the hair of its color damage the hair, and cause skin irritations.


Thankfully, most shampoos do not use sulfate, and so you just need to select a brand that only uses natural and harmless ingredients. The internet is your friend when it comes to discovering the best items and getting the best prices. So, make sure you shop around! Also, be sure to ask your hairdresser about the products they plan to use before letting them loose with your hair. Some professionals know less about this issue than the average lady on the street.


Anything containing formaldehyde


Lots of cosmetics companies use formaldehyde in their products to limit bacteria growth according to http://www.foxnews.com/health/2015/07/27/. That means the beauty items you purchase will stay in good condition for longer than they otherwise would have done. However, apart from being potentially linked to nasal and nasopharyngeal cancers, the chemical can also cause a lot of irritation and adverse effects. Some of the most common products that can contain formaldehyde include:


  • Nail polish
  • Body wash
  • Conditioners
  • Cleansers
  • Eye shadows


So, make sure you always read the small print on the back of the packaging, and never pick up an item if it contains that dangerous chemical.


Permanent and semi-permanent hair dyes


According to the National Cancer Institute, many permanent and semi-permanent hair dyes contain more than 5,000 different chemicals. A small number of those ingredients can cause cancer and other illnesses. More than a third of women over the age of eighteen use those products every year, and around 10% of men do the same thing. For that reason, it’s vital that you take the time to research the subject and ensure you never place yourself at risk. Ideally, you should only use products on your hair that don’t contain aromatic amines. That was proven to cause cancer in animals during the 1970s, and experts have many concerns about the effect it has on humans.


As you can see from the information on this page, some of those beauty products on the high-street probably do more harm than good. Considering that, it’s about time we all started to pay more attention to the chemicals we use on our bodies. For whatever reason, most people seem to think that if it’s available at their local store, then it must be safe. Sadly, that is rarely the case, and so we all need to take action to ensure we educate ourselves (and our friends) about the dangers we face. Share this post with people you know, and maybe you’ll save them some pain or discomfort in the future.
