Myths about skin care
I believe that the magic of skin care with natural ingredients seems to be a big trend of transformation-more and more women choose products with pure natural ingredients and are enthusiastic about using fresh fruits and vegetables for skin care. “Naturalism” is sweeping the world!
Why believe in the skincare magic of natural ingredients, because the subconscious thinks that natural is safe.
In fact, natural ingredients are not necessarily safe, and safe ingredients can also be “artificial”.
In this dialectics, what we should return is to find the most effective beauty products for the skin!
Safety, the “root” of skin care products Many people will consider the price, ingredients, brand, concept and many other aspects when choosing skin care. However, one of the most fundamental things that people always ignore is product safety.
Safety is the foundation of a product based on the market. On this basis, the efficacy of the product is viewed.
Whether it is a product that advocates natural ingredients or a product that is mainly synthesized by technology, the most important thing is to pay attention to whether the product has been certified by a professional laboratory. The testing and evaluation of product safety from national authorities must be the safety of cosmetics.Provides strong evidence.
Efficacy has nothing to do with nature. Whether it is “natural”, “pure plant”, or synthetic, in fact, they have different advantages. We must not fall into the misunderstanding of publicity.
Misunderstanding 1: Natural is more secure!
The so-called pure natural skin care products must meet at least 1. Raw materials come from natural sources (mostly extracted from plants or marine life) and have high precision purity and stability; 2. Contains no artificial preservatives, fungicides, flavor pigments or mineralsChemicals such as oil that may cause irritation; in fact, the safety of natural ingredients is only relative.
From the point of view of product technology: not to mention that there are too many toxic plants in nature, even if it is some “star” herbs, because the traditional process is achieved by frying, grinding and squeezing to achieve its use.In the end, in addition to the active ingredients, some useless or even substituted ingredients will be replaced more or less.
From the perspective of the mineral itself: some commonly used natural minerals, such as mint, rosemary, etc. have a certain irritation, while lemon, lavender, etc. can cause light-sensitive reactions in different places, affecting skin health.
From the amount of use: Because the types and proportions of various substances in natural ingredients are not 100% clear, there are always some unknowns when using them.
Coupled with the traditional impression that people are “safe and reliable” about natural ingredients, it is easy to ignore the control of the amount when using it. Unlike western medicine or industrial ingredients, it is easy to ignore the excessive amount or insufficient amount, which affects the effect of skin care.
Myth 2: Natural must be better than synthetic!
Although pure natural ingredients have advantages in environmental protection, safety and mildness, they are not optimal in terms of speed, stability and convenience.
The point that natural ingredients can’t compete with synthetic ingredients is that natural molecules have large molecules and are not easily absorbed by the skin. Especially when using fresh fruits and vegetables DIY, the effect of external application is difficult to guarantee.
Therefore, some people think that the herbal skin care products that they make are fresh and effective, and are better than the products they buy. However, the convenience, effectiveness, and safety cannot be related to the finished skin care products, and the expectations of the effects have to be too high.
The biggest advantage of synthetic raw materials is that their safety and effectiveness mean has passed rigorous testing and certification on a large scale, and has been recognized by most scientists, chemists and related professionals.
For example, we are exactly vitamin B3, vitamin C, vitamin E is the first choice for many dermatologists or beauty experts to solve wrinkles, antioxidants, acne and other issues. Among them, the effect of vitamin B3 to reduce wrinkles has been recognized worldwide.This is no proven beauty with any natural ingredients!
In the future, natural and hand in hand are synthesizing. From the point of view of the most fashionable skin care trend, China and the West combine to form a strong joint, that is, combining the advantages of natural ingredients and synthetic ingredients.
Therefore, in the future, cosmetics will break down natural or synthetic barriers, take safety as the benchmark, efficacy as the supremacy principle, and combine organically to complement each other to create new skin care fashion.
All we have to do is find the “skin” partner that best suits our skin!
