"Dear self, what are the worst things I could do with my face?"
Simple: that is to refrain from putting unnecessary things which you've thought would give you a heavenly facial health.
Most of us people are fanatics of cosmetology, and are to focused on making their faces look good. Around the world, there are remarkably numerous ways to keep your facial skin tighter, smoother, more radiant and fresher, but please be careful because even the most common things people have claimed to be facially beneficial actually pose health risks and negative effects. Mind you, our face is very sensitive, so only scientifically proven safe beauty products or materials should just be used.
Take note of these common things that are actually not beneficial to our faces.
Eggs, even if it looks very beneficial, are found to irritate the skin at some extend. Better refrain from it than sorry.
Body lotions are not as safe as facial creams. Chemical compounds contained on the former are only specific for non-facial skins. When you try to put such, expect some dehydration, irritation, and formation of unwanted facial skin conditions.
Toothpastes are basic--they will keep your face dry, and will make your face appear vulnerable to microorganism attacks. Scary!
Mayonnaise, as an acidic material, can react on your pores like it would cover them up until your face develops bumps, pimples, whiteheads, or any other yucky stuff of some sort.
Although it would initially give you a smoother and clearer result, it will give you a headache in the long run. You will eventually realize that baking soda will promote imbalance on your face, stripping away even the important oils contained on your face.
People claimed that sugars can scrape off dead skin cells. That's scientifically proven. Apparently, as our face is composed of not-so-resistant and 'cute' cells, the tendency would be: the sugar can 'tear' cells off of the face. You dislike wounds, right?
Hair dyes possess harsh and corrosive chemicals which can irritate the face, and could mistakenly 'burn' the eyes.
Vinegar was known to be a 'natural' toner, but then, as they are still in the continuous process of anaerobic fermentation, it will still evolve to a stronger compound with alcohol. So, this stuff will just dry your skin up, especially with regular use.
Let's set this straight. who would ever attempt to apply some nail polish on her/his face other that a pathetic person? Okay. Don't get me wrong, but if you know that you think normally, and you do not need some psychological attention, please don't put these on your face, like ever. Extreme dryness will be experienced.
Obviously, shampoos compose of compounds that can strongly address oils and other dusty stuff from our hairs. Those chemicals are definitely not the same with dermatologically-preferred facial wash or foams. Shampoos can interfere with facial oils and other important molecules in the skin, leaving the misapplied area dry and peeling.
Limes are almost synonymous to acidity, irritation, skin burning and sad life- especially, when you put it on your face. Remember not to try, even at least once.
Although there were claims that this would keep women's make up untouched, that's not worth it as compared to skin irritation, dehydration of the facial skin, and redness. Choose wisely.
