How Do Harmful Ingredients in Skincare Affect Your Skin

April 13th, 2011

How do harmful ingredients in skin care affect your skin? Some can cause your skin to become irritated, others cause cellular damage by affecting the walls of the cells which causes cell degradation. Some scientists even believe that there is a link from these types of ingredients to cancer.

The effects of these harmful skin care ingredients can be mild, moderate or severe in nature and in some cases create chronic skin conditions.

Are Your Skin Care Products Safe

Rashes, dry skin, irritation or skin that overly produces oil, can in most cases be traced back to poorly crafted skincare products.

These harmful chemicals are absorbed by the skin and ultimately go into the blood stream to other parts of the body. This can then cause a cascading effect of ill health.

The root of the problem could be the liver, one of our main detoxing organs, which can become overwhelmed by the toxins, unable to flush them out.

This causes a chain reaction by overloading other organs and causing them to affect all other areas of the body.

The skin, being one of the organs that helps us get rid of toxins and impurities can then become swamped, unable to get rid of the excess toxins, creating unwanted skin conditions.

The problem can be compounded by eating processed foods, non-organic foods and foods with poor nutritional value, all ultimately affecting the skin.

Anyone can have clean, clear and glowing skin and your diet is one of the first steps in creating a firm foundation for getting the type of skin you want.

We all want supple, younger looking skin and one of the best ways to get it is to become informed about the types of ingredients contained in your skincare products. Some websites contain large reference materials and can inform you of what these ingredients are.

One of my favorite websites for finding out more about ingredients in my skin care products or personal care products is also known as Skin Deep.

Please avail yourself of this information as your health and your beautiful skin depend on it.

Lastly, the point I’m trying to make is to educate yourself about your skin care ingredients and don’t be afraid of what you might find. You can always change things for the better. You can literally see better, more wholesome looking skin in weeks once you stop using poorly crafted skin care products.

Remember, the body is very resilient and can bounce back from almost anything, and this includes the condition of your skin. Also, because the quantities of these harmful ingredients in skin care are sometimes sufficiently low, it can take years for the accumulation to have any significant effect on the body.

However, you don’t want to wait that long, take charge of your health, longevity and your beautiful skin now.

I hope this information is very helpful to you and if you found it so, please pass along to your friends.
