You've definitely heard of sulfates before — and they're terrible for your skin! Sulfates are used in beauty products as as cleansers that create a lathering effect to remove oil and dirt. While they can be helpful in products like floor scrubbing solutions, engine degreasers, and car-wash soaps, they really shouldn't be put on your face. When used consistently, sulfates can cause skin irritation and corrosion, and over time, lead to increased dryness. You know what that means — more visible fine lines and wrinkles. When you're shopping around for beauty products, be sure to avoid “sodium laureth sulfate” and “sodium lauryl sulfate" in particular.DEA

DEA is an ammonia compaoud that can also dry and irritate the skin. In addition to potential links to cancer, these ingredients are ultra-drying to the skin and hair, so you should avoid it at all costs. Instead of cleansers with DEA in them, you can opt for more natural, healthy ingredients that can give you the same clean feeling.Mineral Oil

Depending on your skin type and skincare routine, mineral oil can be very bad for your skin! From clogged pores to irritation and inflammation, mineral oil can cause an aging effect that can make fine lines and wrinkles much more visible. Instead of mineral oils, look for natural oils like marula and rosehip seed. Since these kinds of oils are derived from plants and not petroleum, they are much healthier and moe nourishing for the skin. Isopropyl alcohol

One of the many causes of wrinkles is a lack of moisture in the skin. When your skin is dry, it looses elasticity and can cause deep wrinkles. That being said, one very drying ingredient can be found in many different moisturizers and lotions — isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol can strip away skin’s natural oils and lead to premature aging and irritation. You should avoid any products with isopropyl alcohol, and opt for more nourishing lotions and moisturizers like those that contain cocoa butter and natural oils.

i tried covergirl’s clean fresh line...
i tried covergirl’s clean fresh line...
... and i have a lot to say! it has been ages since i posted a detailed review of a product, so we might as well just dive in! COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Cooling Glow Highlighter Stick the first product from this collection that i tried was their cooling glow stick. i own shades “opal dreams”, which is a nice opal pale-pink shade, as well as “so gilty” which is a more warm-toned golden nude shade. they are super cooling and have a nice natural sheen to them which can be emphasized by topping with a powder highlight. i find myself reaching for this a lot to make my complexion dewy and nice! COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Hydrating Concealer i think people who do exclusively natural makeup will love this product. it is creamy and suitable for drier complexions (unlike my own), but the coverage simply isn’t enough for me. i would consider it light-medium, but i do usually choose the higher-coverage (but MUCH DRIER) COVERGIRL - TruBlend Undercover Concealer . COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Pressed Powder i like this powder. i own the translucent shade and the flashback is nothing crazy. i do find i have to use a lot more of it than i did when i used to use the MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder. COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation i like this foundation as well. it does have a unique smell which may trouble some but the coverage is nice and the finish could be described as satin. people either love or hate this foundation, but i think it is great and will certainly repurchase it! OVERALL.... i love this line and i think it is great for everyday natural makeup looks. my favourite is easily the cooling glow stick and least favourite being the hydrating concealer. overall, i love using all of these products together and i will likely repurchase many of them!!⛅️💗 i hope you enjoyed ;) please be sure to follow here and on my IG @chloebrk.mua #cheriecreator

My well-loved drugstore makeup essentials
My well-loved drugstore makeup essentials
These are the drugstore makeup picks I ACTUALLY use! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Tarte Shapetape Concealer. Even the latest launches from Rare Beauty have me swooning. But drugstore makeup holds a special place in my heart. Walking through the aisles of Target or CVS gets me giddy. Quite honestly, I count those trips as my therapy sessions. Plus, these are the places were I started getting essentials to experiment with when I was younger! My favorite brands to score from are no doubt Pixi, NYX, Essence Cosmetics, Sonia Kashuk, Maybelline and Covergirl. They’re just my go-to’s! They’re the brands constantly putting out dupes for cult favorites. Everything in this picture, I use on a daily basis. I’ve been going through Maybelline Lifter Glosses like they’re going out of style. I actually was responsible for my local Target running out of stock once...oops. Another new essential that’s crawled its way into my everyday routine is the Covergirl Cooling Glow Stick. It’s part of their new Clean Fresh line and I use it on my WHOLE face. Top tip: try it under your eyes over your concealer 👀 I’m still in search for the perfect drugstore CC cream, does anyone have any good recommendations?

Highlighter: MACx Teyana Taylor in shade “House of Petunia” Lip Stick: MACx Teyana Taylor in the shade “ I got a man” Setting Spray: NYX - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray I like this because it doesn’t give me a completely matte finish but my makeup also stays put Lip Liner:KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner in NUDE 3 My favvvvvv lip liner ever Lip gloss: any beauty supply gloss lol Eyeliner:SEPHORA COLLECTION - 12hr Colorful Contour Eyeliner in black Mascara: e.l.f. - Volumizing Mascara Eyelashes is extensions That’s all folksssss 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖
