Harmful ingredients?

Hi girls! Do you all read the ingredients when buying skincare products? I know I don't cause I don't know what is harmful or not. I always just buy water-based products just to be safe. Can someone tell me what harmful ingredients I should really look out for in future? It will be so helpful! Thank you so much! 😊

Essential oils and other scents can be a bit irritating for some, but they can still be in plenty of ‘clean’ products 😊 Not all alcohols are created equal, too, some are even beneficial! I suggest mostly avoiding “alcohol” and “alcohol denat” (cetyl alcohol and such can be okay) because those are the drying/problematic ones. Besides no parabens and sulfates, I also check to make sure there aren’t any petroleum products or mineral oil. Even with all that, though, there won’t be anything too bad in any skincare - brands don’t want to hurt their best customers! So even if you do accidentally use something not as ‘clean’ ingredients-wise, you’ll still be fine 💕 Good luck!

I read or watch professionals about their recommendations for different skin type, like what to avoid or what to pick... Better seek your derma for better advice ❤️
