The ancient Egyptians used oxidized copper paste for eye makeup. This dangerous ingredient will eventually lead to irritation and insomnia, but they were willing to suffer in the name of beauty. And while the cosmetics industry has changed a lot over the years, some products in your makeup bag can still sabotage your efforts to create healthy, flawless skin.

Here at Pictolic, we set out to find out which popular skincare products can do more harm than good.

7 skin care products that can harm your skin

1. Facial scrubs with coarse particles.

Regular exfoliation (daily or weekly) can damage your skin. Abrasive scrubs remove the outer layer of the skin and damage the barrier that protects it from the environment. After exfoliation, your skin may temporarily appear degreased, but later it will release even more oil to compensate for the dryness.

2. Some ways to treat acne.

Topical acne treatments can cause the skin to feel dry and irritated. While these symptoms are often temporary, your skin may itch, even peel, or burn. Some oral acne medications can have more serious side effects. For example, antibiotics can cause stomach upset or dizziness.

3. Gouache stones.

Massaging the skin with guasha stones has many benefits, such as improving blood circulation and reducing neck pain. But because the skin is rubbed with a massage tool, the tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin can burst. This can lead to bruising and minor bleeding.

4. Dry brush.

Dry brushing is great for exfoliating skin, but may not be for everyone. It can irritate sensitive skin or make it too dry. People with inflamed skin, including people with eczema and psoriasis, should avoid dry brushing as it can lead to infection.

5. Alcohol wipes.

Wiping your face with alcohol wipes can make you feel cleaner as it mattifies your skin. But in fact, alcohol removes much-needed oils from the skin, triggering sebum production and actually making acne worse.

6. Chemical exfoliants.

If you use a chemical exfoliator more than once a week, you can damage the protective natural oil film that covers your skin. Using products with harmful ingredients can lead to inflammation and breakouts. The harsh ingredients in chemical exfoliators can remove too many layers of skin, leaving the skin red and irritated.

7. Strips for cleansing the pores.

Nose strips can remove not only blackheads, completely cleanse the pores of sebum and dead skin cells. These components inside the pores are designed to maintain a healthy balance of oil in the skin, and when they are removed, your pores can become irritated.
