With everyone sharing their cosmeceuticals routines on social media, it seems as if there is a new up and coming trend every day. Trying new products on your skin can be a lot of fun and can also help you figure out new ingredients that work well with your skin type. However, there are a few recent trends that, although they are steadily on the rise, can seriously damage your skin and should be carefully considered before using them.
Matte Lip Cosmeceuticals
The big trend in makeup right now is a matte look, or a final appearance that is void of any shine at all. This includes the lips which, in the past, have been coated in extra shiny lip colors. This new trend promotes matte lips, which give a flat, natural color to the lip. Although they may look nice, these lip colors can seriously dry out your lips when compared to other cosmeceuticals. If you insist on using them anyway, protect your lips by applying a layer of lip balm before your matte color.
Peel Off Masks
If you walk down the cosmeceuticals section of any major retailer, you will see rows and rows of facial masks. This trend has been huge in recent years and people are especially fond of peel off masks, which satisfyingly peel off in one piece one the treatment is done. The problem with peel off masks is that they include a type of glue that can often peel healthy cells away with it. If you are using other products with retinol in them, it is even more important that you avoid these masks, as they may peel away an entire layer of your skin.
Many people love their at-home facial brushes because, not only do they believe that they are getting a deeper clean, but the brush provides a gentle face massage. The big problem with these brushes is that they are prone to trapping bacteria, which can lead to an array of skin care problems. They can cause inflammation, minor cuts and even major infections. Even if you clean your brush regularly, you cannot completely rid it of the bacteria.
