When it comes to skin care, we all have our favorite products and at-home remedies passed down by family members. However, some of the products you’re using on the skin of your face may be causing more harm than good!

Here are five commonly used products that should never be used on your face, and what similar products are safe to apply instead.

Bar Soap – Bar soap often contains sodium lauryl sulfate, which is drying and can leave a film on your face, as well as strip it of necessary oils and deplete moisture. Instead, use a facial cleanser made with natural or organic ingredients that is suited for your skin type.

Hydrogen Peroxide – This chemical compound is great for cleaning wounds, but keep it away from your face. Hydrogen peroxide can cause burns and blisters, allergic reactions, and other issues you don’t want on your skin.

Petroleum Jelly – It’s been known to help seal in moisture and protect cuts, but petroleum jelly does not belong on the face. It’s toxic and carcinogenic, due to it being a byproduct of petroleum, and can trap dirt and bacteria on your skin which can cause breakouts. In addition, It can aggravate skin conditions like acne and rosacea. To add moisture to the skin, apply a moisturizer that contains squalene, hyaluronic acid, and other natural ingredients.

Hair Spray – Somewhere, at some time, it was suggested that using hair spray can set your makeup. Bad idea! Hair spray contains harsh chemicals that can wreak havoc on the skin, clog pores, and cause irritation. Instead, use a setting spray designed specifically for makeup.

Body Lotion – Because the skin on the face is so sensitive, leave the body lotion for everywhere else. Body lotions are likely to clog pores and cause breakouts. Use body lotion for the body and switch to a facial moisturizer with natural ingredients, instead.

Dr. Youn ‘s Recommendation of the Week:

YOUN Beauty Calming Antioxidant Moisturizer – This calming moisturizer contains a plethora of antioxidants to halt and reverse damage from free radicals and oxidation. Green tea, blueberry, cranberry, and bayberry work together to soothe the skin and prevent aging, while squalene and phospholipids act as powerful moisturizers. Although light and comfortable, this cream can keep even the driest skin feeling supple and hydrated.

Skip the petroleum jelly and use this instead! 🙂
