Misconceptions of Skincare and Makeup Common Terms

Have you babes ever wonder what exactly goes on your face when you apply skincare or makeup daily?

As I have sensitive skin, I tend to read all labels and ingredients before I decide if I should give it a shot.

I do have a girlfriend who is not known to have sensitive skin or any allergy to any ingredients.

However, her face actually itch and reddens after she used a particular so called popular face mask.

Hence, I would encourage you babes to read the labels before purchasing just in case.

There are some common terms used by companies on their products; taken off Health Science Authority

(1) Hypoallergenic Product : Product is less (‘hypo') likely to cause allergic reactions.

                                          * It does NOT mean that it will completely prevent allergies.

(2) Natural Cosmetic : May not necessarily be “better” or “safer”.

                                    : Some plants and herbs are poisonous and others may cause allergies to some.

                                    * Generally have shorter shelf lives, as they are usually preservative free.

Of course, you can also use your Senses to Feel, Touch and Smell the products.

If the products have a weird odour or colour change from the original one, then please discard immediately.

Do also keep the products away from direct sunlight and high temperature.
