I am sure that all over the world people find it absolutely legitimate to take it for granted that humans have an obssession over looking good, inconsiderate of the fact that there might be a diminutive minority if not a whopping majority which actually does not care about how they look. Yes, hard to believe but once in a while we all bump into people who could not care less about how you think they look or how they think they look. It is either that they are too busy or simply because they have been programmed that way. Whatever the case may be, this article however is addressed to all and not just a majority over minority or vice versa because I know we all care about how our skin feels! Don’t we?

A simple rash in a small area of our skin or a general pigmentation can give us sleepless nights. Dry skin often tampers with our goodnights’ sleep resulting in meaningless mood swings. Yes, it happens. And in similar ways ecstatic is the feeling of touching a smooth flawless skin even in times of great tension. Simple pleasures of life therefore has a lot to do with healthy skin, sometimes quite explicitly and sometimes its only psychological, exposing its worth in fleeting nuances of one’s ultimate privacy. Therefore we would here discuss some of the lesser known words that you should look for in your face creams, lotions, sunscreens etc. in order to protect your sky from feeling low.

We put ourselves through a lot of hazards daily not realising the effect it has on us daily and when we have to expose ourselves to these conditions daily, the consequences can be really scary. Thinking about all those products which get daily access to your body, if one of them gets it wrong, you are getting it wrong everyday. It does not do anything initially may be but the eventual results of a mistake often makes us pay a heavy price. Same goes for our skin and here I will list certain terms which we generally find on our cosmetics and ignoring the meaning of some of them is more often than not to our highest advantage. Again, here you will also come across a few terms which you probably do not find on your cosmetics and may be next time when you choose a product for yourself, you should make sure these terms find a quick mention in the ingredients or description respectively.


Hypoallergenic: The general conception with any cosmetic products these days is that if it does not suit your skin type then it will cause some sort of an irritation or allergic reaction when it comes in contact with your skin. And going by exactly how many of these products actually overlook the sensitivity of the skin, even if a product does not cause a reaction instantly, it, may do so overtime. Yes, there is a genuine medical condition called ‘sensitive skin’ and hypoallergenic products are generally meant for those skin types but by and large skin being a sensitive issue it is always safe for everyone to opt for products which are hypoallergenic. Hypoallergenic is a term used to mean ‘below normal’ or ‘slightly’ allergenic and the products which sport this term are made keeping in consideration the sensitivity of a vulnerable skin condition and is generally safe for all skin types when it is a face cream, lotion or sunscreen in question. This term is widely used in cosmetics and tectile industry and denotes that hypoallergenic products have fewer allergic reactions as they use chemicals which will generally be mild.  There are a range of hypoallergenic products available in the market for all sorts of use. Just googling the term to order one online will suffice.


Soap Free:  Honestly, launching a couple of researches into the phenomenon of going completely soap free, I have not come across any conclusive proof that how soap free products works any better than soap because the chemicals that the soap free products use lather or no lather, may escape the strict chemical composition of a ‘soap’ but end up using similar material. And also, soap is just fine for daily use, though you may choose to use something milder for your face and in that case a soap free cleansing lotion would do just fine.

Sulphate free: Not going into the intricate chemical details of what sulphates are and what it does, the main thing to remember is that it is not a skin’s favourite and it is definitely something you can do away with. Some studies show that it may cause cancer but again, the claims have been devated over the years. Sulphate free shampoos have been very popular recently as people genuinely opt for anything with lesser chemicals as more and more people are getting to know the general effects of these common chemicals. Given that sulphate is a popular cause of skin irritation, it only helps to have a sulphate free cleansing bar and lotion.


Paraben free: Well, parabens are preservatives that are generally used in cosmetics, cleansing products, deodorants etc. Researches have been conducted on the chances of it causing cancer. Though nothing substantive has been found, the number of paraben free products have been increased dramatically. It is hard to call a preservative safe but going by expert opinion, there is nothing for the consumers to worry about regarding paraben at this point ,for the last thing you would want companies to do is to move to more dangerous preservatives only to swiych to the ‘paraben free’ label.

Noncomedogenic: This can mean something or nothing depending on your skin type. If yor skin is acne prone then it is better that you use products labelled ‘noncomedogenic’ as it is not likely to cause ‘comedones’ as the ingredients they use do not cause pore blockages. Some people actually find it useful, whereas for others, it just does not work.
