Beauty Products That You Must Avoid At All Cost

1. Hand and Body Lotion

Dermatologists usually use creams which are heavier and contain a higher viscosity than lotions. Creams penetrate the skin and provide a barrier that prevents moisture loss from the skin, while lotions don’t. 

Body lotions usually have a higher water content. Lotion is good for skin that is not excessively dry or when it’s preferable to not have a sticky, greasy feeling on the skin.

2. Charcoal Face Masks

This popular product has a lot of opponents among dermatologists. The specialists claim that these kinds of masks are not only painful but they also damage the skin structure. The ingredients of this mask are very aggressive, they remove skin cells, thin hairs, and oil from the skin.

3. Sunscreen Spray
Experts agree that sunscreen spray is very user-friendly. But they prefer creams for their personal use. It’s impossible to apply spray in a thick layer. Besides, when sprayed, this product partially loses its active elements before reaching the skin.

 Dermatologists also believe that sunscreen products which contain zinc oxide are gentler to the skin and are more effective. These products reflect ultraviolet rays and don’t absorb them.

4. Tanning Oil

Tanning oils are also not praised by dermatologists. They have low protection against ultraviolet rays and they also clog pores which worsens the skin’s condition.

5. Hydrocortisone Cream
This cream is a strong steroid product. It’s supposed to be used when a person has serious skin diseases. However, some people prefer to use it on acne without a doctor’s prescription which is pretty bad because it can cause rashes, skin thinning, dermatitis, and steroid acne, after prolonged use.

6. Foot Masks

Dermatologists don’t recommend using moisturizing or nourishing foot masks. Creams can easily have the same effect. So, foot masks are pretty useless and are not very convenient.
