7 Things you should NEVER Apply on your Face

Priyanka Verma | September 5, 2018

Since the past two decades, women are getting into the habit of using more and more Ayurvedic and natural products and while doing so, they often apply such things on their face which can actually harm their facial skin immensely. Beauty and skin expert, Shahnaz Hussain talks about certain skincare products that should never be applied on the face: 


1) Vinegar

Any kind of vinegar contains acids in a large amount and this can cause an infection on the face. The correct way of applying vinegar is to dilute it with water and then use it. This decreases the strength of the vinegar.


2) Beer

Beer is also acidic in nature and the regular use of beer on the face reduces the natural oils of the face and makes it dry and dull. It can also lead to the appearance of pimples on the face.


3) Baking Soda

Excessive use of baking soda on the skin can also prove to be fatal. Baking soda is alkaline in nature and it makes the pH balance of the skin alkaline too. This reduces the glow of the face. Regular use of baking soda can cause acne and pimples on the skin as well.


4) Spearmint

Spearmint or pudina is a natural refresher but the menthol present in it can cause redness and acne on the face. Some women who used spearmint regularly also reported darkening of skin.


5) Toothpaste

Some toothpastes contain various chemicals which reduce the glow of the skin and causes blemishes on the skin. Excessive use of toothpaste can also cause wrinkles on the face.


6) Body Lotion

Shahnaz Hussain talks about the use of body lotion and says that one must understand that a body lotion is made only for application on the body but often people apply it on the face, which is a very incorrect practice. Most body lotions contain various chemicals which can be dangerous for the delicate skin of the face and one should only apply face creams on the face.


7) Vaseline

Vaseline is oil-based, very sticky and not suitable for the skin. If it is applied on the skin, dirt and dust get stuck on the skin and create a layer on the skin, which closes the pores of the skin. The pores of skin are unable to breathe and this results in damage to the skin.

Shahnaz Hussain also says that one should always recognize their skin type and only then choose products for your skin. Do not excessively use any product because at times, this can even cause irreversible damage to the skin.
