Toxic Ingredients In Skincare: A Quick Guide

Are there bad ingredients for skin? Unfortunately, not all products are the same! Let's put all suspicions to rest and talk about bad ingredients in skin care!

Skincare is a huge industry and not all products are suitable for your skin type. We get it, you've fallen head over heels for this brand and now you're having second thoughts.

You may even already be feeling a little discomfort. Let's put those suspicions to rest with this quick guide on what damage can toxic ingredients in skincare do!   

1. Stinging or Burning Sensations

It stings or burns when you use skincare products. That tingling sensation you feel is caused by a few reasons.

The skin on your face is the thinnest. You can feel the stinging sensations as all your nerve endings are close to the surface. Your blood vessels are also located close to your skin, making it likelier for your skin to itch or burn.

In more severe cases, you can develop a rash. But if you are already feeling a stinging sensation, it’s a good idea to entirely ditch your current skincare products.

Opt for gentler products that do not use any harmful ingredients. 

2. Dryness

Your skin is getting dry and it's starting to crack. Using products that contain ingredients like alcohol, fragrance and parabens can aggravate your skin.

This could also be a sign that you may be using too many skincare products. Exposing your skin to numerous ingredients at one time can overwhelm the skin barrier, causing reactions like dryness & flaking.

Start cutting down your skincare products and switch to gentler formulations. Using a natural mist tonic spray like the WOW 10-In-1 Apple Cider Vinegar Mist Tonic. 

Simply bring it with you wherever you go and spray it on throughout the day.

The WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Mist Tonic is made with hydrating ingredients like Aloe Vera Extract for replenishing the skin’s moisture levels. Helping you keep your skin staying supple all day!

 

3. You Breakout Easily

Another potential red flag is having oily skin and breaking out regularly.

If you have acne-prone skin, commercial skincare products can take a toll on your complexion. Using a commercial facial cleanser can dry out your skin and cause inflammation. Factors like diet & genetics definitely play a role but the products you use can amplify these reactions.


The WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash is a gentle formula that dissolves and washes away dirt and dead skin cells. It dispenses a rich foam & comes with a specially made silicone brush so you don’t have to manually sud it up on your face.

Bringing you a gentle exfoliating experience naturally!
