Over Age Acne? Learn How To Beat the Bumps
Watch Our For “Red Light” Irritants
Don’t be fooled by pretty packages! Always, ALWAYS look that the ingredients list for any skin care product you buy. Definite no-no’s: hydroquinone (used in some skin lightening products); parabens (aka preservatives) can prematurely age the skin when exposed to sunlight; propylene gycol (PEG) can clog the pores and cause acne; and sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate in face wash–it’s just too drying, which will cause an over-active response from your sebum glands and make your skin look oily.
