Three Things you should not apply on your face.

by in Blog, Skincare November 9, 2020

In a world full of harmful chemical-based skincare products, beauty tricks, DIYs, etc., it’s only normal that you get tempted and give these above-mentioned things a try. Although the increasing awareness about the chemicals present in skincare products may have made women resort to natural DIYs more often, not all of them are deemed to be safe. Whether you choose harmful chemical-based skincare products or not – you must know what is good for your face and what’s not!

Below is a list of things you think might help you achieve clear SKIN but are WRONG and UNHEALTHY:

1. Rubbing alcohol :
We rub alcohol on our faces through the toners and astringent we use, because most of them often contain alcohol in it, and it gives the same feeling as rubbing alcohol on your skin.
Unfortunately what it does is, it rubs off all the oil on your skin.

Those who have really oily skin, acne-prone skin, excess sebum, may think that rubbing alcohol and astringent may get rid of them, but what happens is, it gets rid of the oil temporarily then when your skin realizes it’s missing oil then it creates more oil in response.

You can make use of our Toners. They work wonders to shrink pores, minimize acne, and balance pH levels. They boost your beauty routine and provide you with the healthy skin you crave. They also reduce pores and keeps the blackheads away as well as boost hydration.

Avila Face toner comes in four variants:
*Rosewater face toner #1500

*Hibiscus face toner #1500

*Calendula face toner #1500

*Lemon Face toner #1500

*Rice Water Toner #1500

2. Petroleum jelly: this for most people has been seen as the ultimate natural moisturizer because we have seen our mothers and grandmothers use it either on their lips, hands, and faces.

But PETROLEUM jelly was actually discovered from the bottom of petroleum barrels, and that is not something you want to apply on your face because It can clog your pores, which makes it a NO-NO, especially for acne-prone skin.

3. Semen: oh yes semen! There are sperm facials that are very popular and people spend hundreds of dollars on it. There’s this belief that applying semen or sperm to your skin is really beneficial and good for it, the reality is probably far from that.

People say it contains a lot of antioxidants and protein. The thing with semen and sperm basically is that it can sometimes contain sexually transmitted diseases and this can be transmitted through mucous membranes found in the lips, nostrils, and eyes. STIs such as herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea can be transmitted in this way.

The eyes are particularly vulnerable. Ocular herpes, for example, can cause inflammation and even vision loss.

I don’t think this is what we want to use as part of our skincare regimen .
