My pet peeves
When it comes to skin I have 2 huge pet peeves, well I have a lot of pet peeves put when it comes to skin its proactive and st ives apricot scrub… It amazes me how many clients use these products so I am going to now go into each one and tell everyone why I hate these in detail..
So let the slating begin first off proactive I absolutely hate this crap and crap is being nice about it, I have a few other words I would like to use but I may offend people.. Proactive uses alot of low grade benzoly peroxide and basically what this will do is kill off sebacous secretions and I know what you are thinking no sebum means no oil means no breakouts and to an extent this is true but when you start to age you will age faster because your own natural is the best way to hold off the signs of aging and if you think “acne” is a pain what till that process starts.. Also benzoly peroxide pushes the oil and dirt deep into the skin so every time you stop using the product you break out therefore it makes your skin addicted so you have to keep using it to prevent breakouts.. You do not want that crap in your skin!
Now st Ives uses broken apricot stones they are jagged and when used on the skin it cuts it and leaves the skin very irritated and sensitive.. I wouldn’t use this on my body nevermind my face.. All this is going to do is make your skin feel attracted and eventually your skin will start to produce more skin so the you will have to exfoliate MORE cause your producing more skin…
Do your skin a favour if you own either os these products put them in the rubbish cause thats the best place for this shit!!
