WHY DIY SKIN CARE NEVER WORKS

11. 05. 2020

I take my skin seriously. Having skincare problems for most of my life can make one have to try things in the fridge to aid one or two skincare problems. I have built a habit of endless scrolls on Pinterest trying to find a quick fix to my skincare troubles. Even have a secret broad just to house my findings.

Am here to tell you to stop …Skin is so hard to deal with but making your own skincare brand right from the fright is not advisable. You will do more harm than good.

Here is why

I take my skin seriously. Having skincare problems for most of my life can make one have to try things in the fridge to aid one or two skincare problems.

Am here to tell you to stop …Skin is so hard to deal with but making your own skincare brand right from the fright is not advisable. You will do more harm than good.

Here is why

  • Homemade products don’t have preservatives in them, so bacteria can easily develop and lead to breakouts.
  • Masks made of raw ingredients, like eggs, can contain harmful bacteria

I hope this post helps someone who is considering putting lemon on their face. Am not saying using all-natural skincare product doesn’t work. But there is a difference in toning with an actual lemon, then using a toner with circa acids in it and yes citric acid is found in lemon. But lemons have a pH of about 2, which can really mess up the skin’s natural pH of 4 – 5. They make the skin more sensitive to the sun, they’re way too acidic and literally eat away at our protective barrier.

My teen acne knows this one all too well.

Toothpaste

Everyone and their grandmother have use toothpaste on their face. When it comes to DIY zit treatments. Am not judging but stick tp brushing your teeth with it.

is a cult classic when it comes to DIY zit treatments. But its main ingredients — peroxide and baking soda (see numbers 7 and 8!) — aren’t so great for your skin. And even though it brings down inflammation temporarily, it will eventually create irritation. Even worse, you run the risk of being left with marks and discolouration after the acne has faded
