Welcome to Part 3 of the Most Commonly Asked Questions About Skin Care. Let’s face it, we’ve all had a question about skin care whether it’s if we should use toner, if we should be refrigerating our skin care products or why we might want to consider natural skin care. Here we discuss some of these questions and hope you find the answer you’re looking for!
Question 1 - Why Use Toner in My Skin Care Routine?
I am one of those people that did not use facial toner when I was younger but since my mid-20’s it has become a staple to my daily skin care routine. Skin care toner can help you obtain and maintain clear, healthy skin.
Effective properties of toners have evolved over the years and are no longer just for helping to restore your skin’s pH balance. Today’s skin care toner products can help acne-prone skin and help prevent breakouts commonly caused by dirt and sweat.
Toner should definitely be a part of your skin care routine as it cleanses away all the stuff left behind after cleansing your face. This includes dead skin cells, cleanser residue left behind, excess oils, and more. In addition, toner can help reduce the appearance of pores, restore natural pH balance to the skin and provide protection on other areas of the body; chest, neck, etc.
Question 2 - Can Skin Care Products Cause Acne?
There may be times when it seems like you can’t get relief from the acne breakouts…could it be caused by your skin care products? While researching this question we came across a very neat site where you can quickly screen the skin care product you’re using or are considering using. You’ll be able to see if there are ingredients known to cause irritation or clog pores.
There very well could be an ingredient in your skin care product that is causing your acne, especially if you aren’t paying close attention to the ingredients listed on the label prior to using it. When looking for anti-acne skin care products, you also want to factor in your skin type. Using the right products for your skin type should offer the best results.
Question 3 - Can Skin Care Clog My Pores?
Clogged pores are often caused by dirt and dead skin cells mixed with skin oils. In addition, other factors can encourage pore clogging including poor diet, poor skin care routine and increased stress. Some skin care products can encourage clogged pores including heavy lotions and creams.
Comedogenic products under the oil and butter categories should also be avoided if you have acne-prone skin. You can view this list of comedogenic products and their level of risk for clogging pores.
Question 4 - Are Skin Care Products Better Cold?
More people are starting to store their beauty and skin care products in the fridge, but is it necessary? Maybe for some products but the majority do just fine at room temperature, out of direct sunlight.
Skin care products that contain vitamin C or retinol can be stored in the fridge to slow the degradation of ingredients. The remainder of your skin care products that don’t contain these 2 ingredients will suffice in the bathroom cabinet or drawer.
Question 5 - Why Natural Skin Care Is Best
Natural is a term that many skin care and beauty enthusiasts often lean towards. Natural skin care can be very beneficial to your skin. They’re easier and gentler on your skin and contain a good source of antioxidants and nutrients for your skin.
Any product you put on your skin is absorbed, so putting harmful chemicals on your skin is a bad idea. Not to mention the chemicals and toxins we breathe in when applying certain skin care products, and even makeup or from washing our hair and body.
Obviously, opting for beauty and skin care products with natural ingredients is going to reduce or omit this exposure and leave your skin happy and healthy.
