The Dangers of Cosmetics

PCHC. The acronym, cryptic at first glance, translates what the law defines as cosmetic and personal hygiene products.

Put another way, the best friends of your image.

The law, that means the as any substance or preparation intended for cleaning, perfuming, protect, maintain in good condition, correct body odour or modify. But it’s not just that you have to say. Defines, for example, rules regarding your labelling and expiration deadlines. On the packaging of cosmetic products, although there are exceptions, must meet the minimum expiration date when this is less than 30 months (see ‘ using preferably before the end).

If the validity exceeding 30 months, cosmetic must present the period after opening in which can be used, a symbol similar to that of an open jar. The law did your role, the cosmetic industry complied with the your, it’s up to you to follow the directions.

 

The validity factor

 

Most cosmetics is rich in preservatives that guarantee your immunity to bacteria and fungi (I love the fact that these products have a high percentage of water). However, this action is limited in time.

 

Respect for your expiration date is therefore one of the basic rules of good use of this type of products. If you do not do prepare for the possibility of an adverse skin reaction.

 

«The formula can destabilize and cause redness, peeling, swelling, irritation.Most likely the active ingredient may not be as potent and therefore lose effectiveness cosmetic» reveals Kenneth Mark, dermatologist.

 

Have in mind that the location where you keep your cosmetics as well as how the applies can also condition your longevity and quality.

 

Contaminated makeup

 

The question of validity applies to make-up. For example, if we insist on wearing mascara or shadow beyond your validity (on average they last between six to 12 months), your eyes may be harmed.

 

How do you explain Louis George Andrade, ophthalmologist, «problems reported are inflammation of the eyelids and corneal lesions that cause pain, burning, light sensitivity and redness».

 

«In people prone to allergies, these risks are more pronounced, and women with this problem to throw away the products with more than three months ‘, reinforces.

 

«At the end of this time, preserving agents lose your effectiveness and the risk of contamination is greatest. On the other hand, the very ingredients rust on contact with the air, which makes them more voiding», he adds.

 

Another error to avoid is the sharing of instruments or make-up. The risk we will develop conjunctivitis or herpes thanks to contaminated material is real.

 

How do you explain the ophthalmologist, ‘ many bacteria, fungi and some viruses have a high resistance and can persist for several days».

 

See next page: How (not) to choose a cosmetic

 

Choose well

 

The active element and the excipients are the two protagonists of cosmetics. The first explains the Portuguese society of Dermatology and Venereology (SPDV), is “the responsible for dermocosmetics announced activity», is the second that is the active ingredient, ‘ responsible for pleasing cosmetic and even by greater or lesser potency of the product ‘.

 

The success of a cosmetic does not depend on, however, only these two variables. Depends also on you.

 

For optimal results you should choose cosmetics taking into account the type and the specifics of your skin. A good example of the effects of incorrect use of cosmetics, as Kenneth Mark, reveals an anti-ageing cream or moisturizing skin very nutritious tended to acneica.

 

And if we insist on using a formula inappropriate facial skin type we’re contributing to speed up your aging process?

 

According to Kenneth Mark,  in theory, if you continue to use a product that is irritating, Yes, once we know that the inflammation (which is the basis of irritation) is a cause of aging.

 

By the way is the fact that they have an anti-inflammatory effect that antioxidants help counter the effects of ageing, further stresses.

 

Dispose of a cosmetic if:

 

-You have lost the original color.

-Present a yellowish tone.

-Reveal an unpleasant smell or other than.

-Your texture is extremely greasy or grainy.

-Your expiration date has expired.

 

Never …

 

-Use a cosmetic without first washing your hands.

-Continue to use a cosmetic if you have an allergic reaction.

-Replace the packing cream left over.

-Add water or another liquid to cosmetics for make it more fluid.

-Store cosmetic in an area with a temperature above 20 degrees.

Let cream remains in the package.

-Share products or instruments.

-Use testers already used in stores.

 

Take note

 

If you wear contact lenses and likes to apply makeup ideally opt for disposable lenses. If you experience discomfort, remove the lens immediately and wash it, Louis George Andrade, with an appropriate solution».

 

The eye area should be irrigated with a tear substitute, saline or, in your absence, with running water. If symptoms persist, you should consult an ophthalmologist ‘, referred to.

 

Tip

 

Cosmetics in tube or filters isolate the contact with the environment,

protecting it more effectively.

 

Did you know that …

 

‘ Frequent use of eye contour pencil can, in theory, block the channels of glands involved in the production of certain components of the tear, which can affect your final composition and impair your protective effect», alert Louis George Andrade, ophthalmologist.
