The products you put on your skin to make it more beautiful may actually be causing your problems. On any given day, the average woman uses at least twenty-five different products on her skin, containing hundreds of chemicals (both synthetic and natural). They obviously influence how oily or dry your skin feels. They can also cause irritation or even allergic reactions and may clog your pores and cause acne. And it's possible that they may interact with one another and become more harmful. Something as simple as what you use to wash your face, or the way you wash it, can create a host of complexion troubles. Washing too much (especially with a cleanser containing drying detergents, alcohol-based gel formulations, or salicylic acid) can dry out your skin. By the same token, oil-based cleansers or creams (and oil-based makeup) can cause breakouts.
