We have learned to trust beauty products that carry the “dermatologist approved” seal. It is true that the recommendations of these specialist doctors have a specific professional value and, at the same time, doctors are human beings who need to take care of their skin. Ever wonder what they prefer to wear and what is taboo to them?
We compiled a list of beauty products that dermatologists never use or recommend to their patients. It’s surprising to find that the products on this list seem harmless enough and that many people probably have them in their purse or on the bathroom shelf.
Hand And Body Lotion
Dermatologists often use creams that are heavier and have a higher viscosity than lotions. Creams penetrate the skin and provide a barrier that prevents the skin from losing moisture, unlike lotions.
Body lotions generally have higher water content. The lotion is good for skin that is not too dry or when it is preferable not to have a sticky, oily skin feeling.
Charcoal Face Masks
This popular product has many opponents among dermatologists. Experts say that this type of mask not only causes pain but also damages the structure of the skin.
The ingredients in this mask are very aggressive, they remove skin cells, thin hair, and oils from the skin.
Experts agree that sunscreen spray is very easy to use. But they prefer creams for personal use. It is impossible to spray in a thick layer. In addition, when sprayed, this product partially loses its active elements before reaching the skin.
Dermatologists also believe that sunscreens that contain zinc oxide are gentler on the skin and more effective. These products reflect UV rays and do not absorb them.
Dermatologists don’t praise tanning oils either. They have low protection against ultraviolet rays and also clog pores, which worsens the condition of the skin.
This cream is a strong steroid product. It should be used when a person has serious skin conditions. However, some people prefer to use it on acne without a prescription, which is very bad as it can cause breakouts, skin thinning, dermatitis, and steroid acne after prolonged use.
Dermatologists do not recommend the use of moisturizing or nourishing foot masks. Creams can easily have the same effect. Therefore, foot masks are useless and inconvenient.
