#EVERYDAYJUNE Ingredients to avoid

Ingredients/Chemicals to Avoid

As my skin has been reacting differently towards products lately, I think reading the labels is super important now. I normally would just purchase products without reading the labels without knowing.

This is why I’ve started reading and researching the different chemicals in my products. Also, I know it’s really hard to make a change with products that you hold closely to your heart. This is why, I know I won’t be making a drastic change right away.

Finding products that have amazing ingredients is going to be hard at first. Now, I will not give up until my skin looks and feels great.

If I find products that I love I will definitely share with you all. Also, if you have recommendations please share them with me as I would love to try any new products to see if any of them work for me.

Things to avoid

-Alcohol, Isopropyl
   -- Very drying and irritating solvent and dehydrator. It strips your skin’s moisture and natural immune barrier

-DMDM hydration & Urea (imidazolidinyl)
