Facial skin care: avoid harmful ingredients, look for good ones instead!

09/05/2021 19:00

Over the age of thirty, we need to pay close attention to skin care. As the years go by, the skin’s collagen production and its ability to absorb water decreases, so the first wrinkles start to appear. In addition, there may be other skin problems that might accompany us all through our teens. To keep our skin youthful, hydrated, and healthy, it is important to choose the right products for your skin type and always pay close attention to the ingredients.

Some harmful ingredients that are recommended to avoid

Petroleum products

The most common petroleum products which tend to appear in cosmetics are Liquidium Paraffinum, Paraffin Wax, Patrolatum, Mineral Oil, Mineral Wax and Vazelin. If you find any of these among the product ingredients, you may want to look for a different skin care product. It is important to know that they clog the pores, prevent the skin from breathing and detoxifying, so they can be responsible for the formation of acne and blackheads.

 


Silicones

The most common silicones that can be found in cosmetics are called Dimethiconol, Simethicone, and Cyclomethicone. Just like petroleum products, they do not allow the skin to breathe, and they also clog the pores, thus causing inflammation and eczema.

 


Alcohol

Alcohol may be present in several skin care products, as sometimes it can have positive effects on the skin and it is a good substitute for artificial preservatives, which are also harmful. However, ethanol for example, dries the skin out significantly and may even cause irritation after use, so it is recommended to avoid it.

 


Natural Ingredients are always better

Once you have established your skin type and decided what kind of cosmetics you would like to get, it is worth choosing from products that primarily contain natural, skin-friendly ingredients. The Wild Ferns Manuka Honey skin care products place a strong emphasis on this.


Our skin will love the manuka honey, the New Zealand bee venom, rotorua mud, aloe vera, cherry blossom, coconut, green tea leaves, hazelnut, rosehip, and shea butter these products contain. Through these ingredients, the skin will gain access to all the necessary vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, which will help the skin in hydration, collagen production and inflammation reduction. With regular use, your skin will be youthful, fresh, and radiant.
