Is your skin itchy? Sensitive? Inflamed?
Do you know it could be related to our lifestyle and environment?
Pollutants and particles in the polluted environment are very tiny and even 20 times smaller than our pores. They sometimes may infiltrate deeper layers of the epidermis, causing inflammation and sensitive skin.
Synthetic Skincare Products
Besides, it may be due to the synthetic skincare products. Go and check if you are using any products that contain harmful additives such as
- methylisothiazolinone (MI / MIT)
- methylchloroisothiazolinone (MCI / CMIT)
- polyethylene glycol (PEG)
- sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)
- artificial fragrance, etc.
These are the ingredients that can cause hormonal disruption, skin irritation, allergy, and contact dermatitis. This is one of the reasons why people suffered from skin irritation and skin disease easily when using synthetics skincare products with the above ingredients.
Surrounded with different synthetic chemicals that are harmful, faced with an environment experienced as harsh and unnatural, we know you need support from natural lifestyle that can bring you back to nature. Therefore, maintaining a good and healthy lifestyle is important to our skin and health. Healthy diet, regular exercise and natural skincare routine are the keys.
You can wear mask while on the street or in public area (such as bus and train) to limit the exposure to pollutants and bacteria.
