INGREDIENTS TO AVOID FOR ACNE!
This is a list of ingredients to avoid for acne or in general. Most of the ingredients I will be listing are carcinogenic. Most of these ingredients are also stored in fat cells which are released in our bloodstream in times of stress, perspiration and nutritional deficiencies. If possible write them down and keep them handy when you are shopping for skincare, hair and makeup products. If possible try to go as natural as possible. I will be doing a post soon on how to detoxify your skin and body to get rid of acne. I will have to toss alot of my skincare products out, because most of them have one or more of these ingredients. I will be researching all natural skincare products that don't cause allergic reactions as some do. Stay tuned!
