Does Make Up Cause Skin Damage?

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

Make up may not be damaging to your skin as long as you are wearing the right kind. You should use a make up with quality ingredients. Make sure you are using make up that won’t clog your pores (free of mineral oil, lanolin or cocoa butter). You may want something that is free of harsh chemicals, dyes and other residues. Using a make up that contains SPF will help prevent sun damage on your face. Sun damage is critical in causing your skin to age faster. As long as you are taking care of your skin by cleansing and moisturizing before and after your make up application and you are wearing quality make up with quality ingredients, you should not have to worry about damaging your skin. You may want to try make up that contains natural ingredients; these ingredients tend to be better for your skin.

Cold Sore Triggers

cold-soreAlthough you can’t cure or prevent cold sores, you can take steps to reduce their cycle and to limit the duration of an occurrence. You can take steps to guard against cold sores, to prevent spreading them to other parts of your body, or to avoid passing them along to others:

  • Do not kiss or have skin contact with people while blisters are present. The virus can easily spread as long as there are moist secretions from your blisters.
  • Stop sharing items.  Accessories,  utensils, towels and other items can spread the virus when blisters are present.
  • Always keep your hands clean. Wash your hands thoroughly before touching another person when you have a cold sore. Be weary about touching other parts of your body. Your eyes and genital area are particularly susceptible to spread of the virus.
  • Avoid triggers. Situations that can trigger cold sores include excessive exposure to the sun. Use sunblock. Use sunblock on your lips and face before prolonged exposure to the sun — during both the winter and the summer — to help prevent cold sores.
