Soft, glowing and flawlessly clean skin is dream of every woman and in order to achieve that, many women use various products for face care, including facial toners, masks and scrubs. Moreover, some women visit beauty salons for facial treatments. Dermatologists explain that most of the commercial products that you can find in the pharmacies and drugstores contain chemicals that might damage or irritate your skin.

There are many scientific studies which have proved that these expensive products and treatments have numerous side-effects. Namely, some of the skin care products that are sold on the market contain a group of chemicals called phthalates, which often are unnoted on the labels. Scientists explain that the main reason for that is the fact that these chemicals are some of the main components in plastic. Needless to say, this chemical compound might cause numerous side-effects.

In addition to that, it is also important to mention that some of the products that are sold in the stores are not properly tested and you should never use such products.

Instead of chemical-laden products, our advice is to use natural alternatives which are made from organic ingredients.
