How to Choose the Right Cosmetics?
Currently, people massively monitor the condition of their skin, devote a lot of time to caring for it in the morning and evening. But how to choose good cosmetics like Cellcosmet skin care? How to understand that this cosmetics is good and learn how to benefit and not harm your skin on your own?
Not all cosmetics, even luxury or labeled “eco” are safe for our health. It is quite easy to get confused in all the splendor of the choice of cosmetics – despite the fact that each subspecies has a certain specificity (for example, even eco-cosmetics, with all their harmlessness, can cause allergies), the same or identical components are often found both in the pharmacy and in the mass market or luxury cosmetics.
Therefore, it is so important to know the basic principles by which you can understand whether cosmetics will bring harm or benefit, and how it can affect skin health.
How to read the composition of cosmetics
If cosmetics do not have certification, you should pay close attention to its composition. Actually, it is the main security criterion when choosing. Although there are several nuances here.
Manufacturers are not always able to specify the composition in sufficient detail. For example, in cosmetics of the mass market class, such a component as Perfume, a flavoring agent, is often found. Its origin can be both natural (for example, essential oils of plants) and synthetic. In the second case, it can cause allergic reactions.
Another marketing gimmick is label listings that have a name like “active ingredients”. This means that the manufacturer is silent about some auxiliary components that may be hazardous to health.
A long shelf life and the presence of preservatives are not always a bad sign. Many plant extracts, components of essential oils, natural alcohols and acids are natural preservatives. But in any case, you should pay attention to the labeling according to the recommended shelf life of cosmetics in an open form (looks like an open jar icon) and storage temperature (many organic cosmetics are best stored in the refrigerator), since, for example, oils deteriorate faster in the hot season.
Do not get carried away with mono-remedies – for example, constantly use oils in their pure form. Or you need to carefully study their properties, since they are not suitable for any type of skin, and if applied incorrectly, they can dry it out rather than moisturize it. In finished cosmetics with a safe composition, as a rule, the ingredients are balanced in proportions.
Less antibacterial cosmetics
If possible, use cosmetics marked “antibacterial” as little as possible (soap, wet wipes). Their active components (for example, triclosan, alcohols) can disrupt the hydrolipidic balance of the skin and, as a result, contribute to weakening the immune system.
Of course, this list is far from complete, therefore, in order for cosmetics to be beneficial, not harmful, it is recommended to study their composition quite carefully before purchasing. But we are sure – a little time spent is worth investing in our health.
