Check the ingredient list – Always
Potassium Chloride, chlorella, carrageenan, do any of these ingredients ring a bell? Probably not, just like 95% of your favorite products’ ingredients list. The reason why it’s important to keep an eye out on how your skin care products are formulated, is because beauty companies can throw around the words ‘non-comedogenic’ and ‘non-acnegenic’ all they want, but the ingredients lists often prove otherwise. Good thing you don’t need your Master’s in chemistry to figure out every ingredient. There are websites and apps where you can simply copy and paste the ingredients or scan the product, and it will tell you whether it contains pore-clogging ingredients. If yes, ban those products from your routine.
