The skin care industry is huge with a large number of products that are used for treating various skin care issues ranging from acne to pigmentation. But then, some of them also contain harmful ingredients that can harm your health and even cause premature ageing. This includes makeup, cleansers, facial moisturizers and cleansers, that will offer you short-term benefits but will end up doing more harm to your face than you know.


Parabens – Parabens are used to increase the shelf-life of products. These preservatives help ensure that the products are long-lasting but are harmful for your skin. They are in your shampoos, masks, body wash and face wash and almost everywhere. Known to mimic estrogen, these ingredients can wreak havoc on your hormonal functions. Phthalates – Phthalates is a group of chemicals that can incredibly soften and increase the flexibility of the plastics in cosmetics. This helps various products stick to the skin. However, these can be immensely harmful for your children and may also lead to birth defects.


BHA/BHT – BHA and BHT are both synthetic antioxidants, which can help extend the products’ shelf lives. These are also carcinogenic and cause hormone disruption, leading to liver damage. Because of this, other organs may also start malfunctioning, leading to a number of issues for your body. Vitamin A or Retinol – Retinol is an amazing ingredient is what is often thought. However, it also has its negative effects as well. For instance, it may end up damaging your DNA and also speed up the growth of the skin tumors when you apply certain products directly on your skin. When you are pregnant, it can especially take a toll on your health.


Calling It a Day These are some of the main ingredients that you need to be aware of when it comes to buying skin care products. Now that you know them, do read the labels well before jumping in joy for every product out there
