Nothing can replace the joy of reading, right? Read the blog here.

Yes, it's true. In skincare, everything natural isn't good; every chemical isn't bad. It is a huge misconception among many skincare product users that natural skin care is good and chemicals are harsh and bad for your skin. Well, we beg to differ and prove otherwise. There is a lot of scaremongering in the skincare community about using chemicals on your face, but we assure you that there is nothing to worry about!

Everything Natural Isn’t Good For You!

It is highly important to realize that all-natural or organic products are not ideal when it comes to skincare. This is because some organic products can be abrasive for your skin and may even trigger an allergic reaction. Any organic product or DIY that involves citric acid or citrus ingredients has the potential to heighten the negative impact of the sun on your skin. Other natural ingredients that shouldn’t ever be in your skincare include:

  • Cinnamon
  • Citrus juices or oils
  • Lemon
  • Papaya
  • Witch hazel

Every Chemical Isn’t Bad!

Although it is undeniable that there are a few chemicals that are extremely bad to be a part of your skincare products, it is not a sufficient reason to ignore chemical ingredients that are good for your skin, like salicylic acid, which works magic for acne-prone skin, and zinc oxide, which is a main ingredient in sunscreens and has the capability of preventing skin damage due to UVB and UVA radiation. Similarly, other good chemicals include:

  • Retinol
  • Glycolic acid
  • Alpha-hydroxy acids
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Peptides
