4 DIY `Natural` Beauty Tricks That Can Hurt The Face

3 years ago

My face is really sensitive, and like many, I`ve turned to `natural` tricks for a better complexion. It is important to keep in mind though that while something is organic and natural, it isn`t always the best for one`s face.
In example:
1. Lemon has a pH of 2 which wrecks with the skin`s protective barrier, and can be phototoxic (increased irritation in the sun - even chemical burns)
2. Sugar is coarse and irregular and while great for rougher parts of the body (eg. elbows, knees) it can tear the face, making it irritated and less able to heal
3. Baking Soda has a pH of 9 and can really tear up the skin
4. Toothpaste may work on really awful zits for spot treatment, but for longterm use it is way to0 harsh and destroys the skin`s mantle
