8 Things You Should Not Apply On Your Face!

In a world full of DIY everything, it's difficult to separate the DIYs you should and shouldn't attempt.

You could try to do everything yourself, but there are some things you should probably leave to professionals.

To avoid unwanted breakouts, irritation, or allergic reactions, make sure never to swipe any of the products below on your gorgeous face.

Reach out to your dermatologist if you have additional concerns.

Stop applying toothpaste to your zits and dark spots. Not only will it not work, but it’s also filled with irritating ingredients, like peppermint, peroxide, fragrances, and alcohol, making it the perfect combination of things that will tear up your skin and possibly lead to chemical burns.

A lot of people use hairspray to help set their makeup in a pinch,, however, hairspray contains alcohols, which can strip the skin of moisture. It can also clog your pores and lead to irritation and acne flare-ups.

Hot Water
Many people like to use hot water on their faces because they think it will help kill bacteria, however, hot water can actually strip the moisture out of your outermost layer of skin.

Vaseline is mostly used to keep chapped skin at bay. When you use it on your skin it initially makes your skin soft and moisturized but a lot of it can actually lead to more number of pimples and dry condition later on.

Body Lotion
The skin on our faces is much thinner than other parts of the body. Body lotions tend to be thicker and contain more fragrances than facial moisturizers that can lead to allergic reactions and breakouts.

Although this ingredient might be great for quick DIY scrubs for other parts of the body, using sugar as an exfoliant on the face can actually scratch and abrade the skin. Avoid using products with hard shaped particles as they can cause microscopic tears in the skin and lead to breakouts.

Hydrogen Peroxide
As a mild antiseptic, hydrogen peroxide is one of the best ways to prevent infections in minor cuts and burns, but as an ingredient in your DIY recipe, it’s a horrible, terrible idea. Not only is hydrogen peroxide a common allergen that can result in inflammation and burning of the skin with prolonged use, it will decrease your skin’s ability to heal itself and strip away all of your skin’s protective barriers and moisture levels

Like hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol is an antibacterial disinfectant used to sterilize wounds to avoid infection…and, you know, to clean your house. Rubbing alcohol is one of the most drying, damaging ingredients you can put on your face. It strips your skin barrier of essential lipids and proteins, leading to a decrease in moisture and an increase of bacteria and irritants getting in.
