    FAQs about Skin Care Products

    Question: What does it mean if a product has been dermatologist-approved or dermatologist-tested?

    Answer: Dermatologist-approved or dermatologist tested simply means that a certain skin care product is examined, reviewed, and tested by a licensed dermatologist.

    Question: What does the term “hypoallergenic” on skin care products mean?

    Answer: When a skin care product is labeled as “hypoallergenic” it is less likely to cause an allergic reaction compared to other cosmetic products. These products work best if you have sensitive skin. Its gentle formula may keep your skin from irritation and breakout. However, always remember to do a patch test on a small area of your skin before using a certain beauty product. This is to determine your skin’s reaction to the product.

    Question: What does a cruelty-free skin care product mean?

    Answer: Cruelty-free cosmetics mean it does not go through animal testing at any point of its production. However, if any of its ingredients are tested on animals, it cannot be labeled as cruelty-free. Many consumers and organizations are against animal testing because these tests are often painful and cause the suffering and death of millions of animals every year. Fortunately, many beauty brands are continually innovating new and effective ways to test products without the use of animals.

    Question: Are natural skin care products and organic skin care products the same?

    Answer: No, natural skin care products are different from organic beauty products. The term “natural” means that the product contains ingredients that can be found in nature and are not created in laboratories. On the other hand, “organic” products are made from ingredients which are grown without pesticides or herbicides. They must also be GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) free. GMOs are plants or animals whose genes have been modified on labs.

    Question: What are Parabens?

    Answer: Parabens are chemicals that act as a preservative in cosmetics and personal care products like deodorants, lotions, lipsticks, shampoos, scrubs, and more. Many beauty brands are against the use of parabens in their products because of its health risks. Studies link parabens to the formation of breast cancer because of its ability to imitate female hormones. This is why most natural and organic beauty brands take pride of their “paraben-free” and “chemical-free” products.

    Question: Do I really need to wear sunscreen every day?

    Answer: Yes. The leading cause of skin damage such as wrinkles, fine lines, skin cancer, and more is the sun’s harmful rays. Wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, every day. Apply your sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply the same amount every two hours.

    Question: Is there a difference between UVA and UVB rays?

    Answer: Yes. Ultraviolet (UV) rays come in three forms: UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVA rays can cause fine lines and wrinkles, while UVB rays are the common culprit for sunburn and skin cancer. UCV rays are the most damaging type of UV radiation. However, it is completely filtered by the atmosphere and does not reach the earth’s surface. Studies show that it only takes 20 minutes for an unprotected skin to start to burn. Stay protected! Always wear your sunscreen.

    Question: Are fine lines and wrinkles the same?

    Answer: No, fine lines differ from wrinkles in terms of visibility. Fine lines disappear when your skin returns back to its original state after squinting, laughing, or any repetitive movement of your facial muscles. Wrinkles are deeper and more visible than fine lines. It can be permanent if not treated quickly.

    Question: What’s the best way to shrink my pores?

    Contrary to the popular belief, shrinking your pores is a skin care myth. Pores neither close nor open but you can minimize their visibility. Try using a mud mask once or twice a week to remove the dirt and oil build up that are clogging your pores.

    Question: Can I wear makeup even though I have acne?

    Yes, you can. It’s fine to wear makeup if you have acne. Just be sure to choose noncomedogenic products that won’t clog your pores.
