If you want your skin to glow, experts at Baylor College of Medicine say all natural products might not be the answer.
“Some people think that by going all natural with their skin care, that it will automatically be safer for their skin. That’s not necessarily the case,” said Dr. Rajani Katta, professor of dermatology at Baylor.
Whether it is cleansers or moisturizers, you can still have allergic reactions to the ingredients even if they are all natural or organic.
Many natural ingredients, such as lavender extract or sandalwood oil, are actually types of fragrance additives. Even though these are natural fragrances, they can still cause the same type of allergic reactions. Other natural ingredients, such as tea tree oil, can also trigger allergic reactions.
Since it may be hard to pinpoint exactly what is causing irritation or allergic reactions just by reading labels, Katta suggests consulting a dermatologist.
