This is the first time I have written a detailed biography for myself. I’m a specialist in internal medicine by profession. Educated in Monash university Melbourne so I had my fair share about living overseas. Besides work, I’m also a mother to 13 months old baby Bing; a wife to another orthopaedic doctor; a daughter who wish to have more time with their parents. I have blogged on and off but nothing serious until April 2017. My colleague introduced me to the wonderful world of blogging. It’s not just about writing down my life events and feelings. It’s about sharing my experience and knowledge to others benefit as well. And it’s great because I can blog on the go, anytime, anywhere. Having an audience is a plus. I mainly blog about beauty and health, food, travel, parenting and breastfeeding.
Today I would like to share 3 things that could have gone wrong when using beauty and cosmetic products.
1. We often can’t bear to part with our favorite products even if it’s old and used. As with every other things, these products do have expiry dates. If it’s not stated clearly, take it as 1 to 3 years after the manufacturing date. Mascara only lasts for 3 to 4 months! Regardless of how expensive and how little have you used it, you should still discard it when it’s passed it’s date. The reason is simple, would you eat expired food? Obviously it’s a big no. Because toxins start to form and you might get sick from it. The same principles apply to beauty products. You wouldn’t want your face to suffer, would you?
2. The choice of products is also very important. Most skin problems arise from wrong skin products. Firstly, for those who have sensitive skin, try the products before your first use. Ask the promoter to apply it somewhere obscure for example at the back of your hand. Continue shopping. Leave it for about 30 minutes. If there’s no reaction, most likely it’s safe to use. But some people may develop allergic reaction later on. Stop using the perfected product in question immediately and wash it off. The reaction can rarely become life threatening.
3. Certain ingredients can be harmful to our skin but still used in some products. This is a list of prohibited additives from FDA.
Watch out for these in the ingredient list. Some other contents that may not be banned but should be avoided include
Paraben-risk of allergies
Alcohol- It can dehydrate your skin
