ARE SKINCARE PRODUCTS CONTAINING ALCOHOL OK?

ARE SKINCARE PRODUCTS CONTAINING ALCOHOL OK?

Over 40? Is your skin delicate or blemished? To protect your skin and avoid further dryness face toners containing alcohol are a no-no.
They are drying, irritating, they disrupt the sebum production, our protective barrier, they may damage even healthy skin, and they can make acne worse.
Check your labels and avoid ingredients like SD alcohol, denatured alcohol and switch to toners and serums naturally derived like hydrosols (Rose for instance), plant extracts (Witch Hazel) and products containing Sodium hyalunorate instead. However, there are other types of alcohols, known as fatty alcohols (cetylstearyl, and #cetearyl_alcohol) which help to moisturize skin because of the natural fatty acid content, so very beneficial for aging skin.
