Dehydration

Skin dehydration is a basic process of when your skin is healthy, it will get rid of dead skin cells up and out through the pore (in other words, it exfoliates itself and regenerates the new skin).

Still, there's a whole multitude of chemical products that will dehydrate your skin (ie. not enough water left in the skin layers). As your skin is dehydrated, it will begin to trap those dead skin cells and the chemical junk leftover in makeups and other skin care products into your pores.

Extreme skin sensitivity

Clogged Pores, Sensitive Red Skin, Rosacea are all the telling signs that your skin health suffers from an extreme sensitivity...

Those pores, in turn, get clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and chemical ingredients, which will simply stagnate there.

This blood flow stagnation scars the natural collagen in the pore (collagen being our skin’s supportive and regenerative component), so the scar tissue will die and get clogged inside the pore alongside the dead skin cells.

This results in scarring, pitting, big pores, and lots of redness and breakouts. Ifyou can't yet spot that scarring on the surface now, if left unfixed it will inevitably become more visible over time.

And if the pressure in the skin's pores gets too high, it will become full on inflammation, rupture the pore and spread to the next pore, spreading the problem across your skin.

Okay so let’s get to the ingredients oftentimes used in the skin care products, that you may want to be avoiding:

Silicones

Names:

Methicone, dimethicone, trimethicone, cyclomethicone, siloxane, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, silsesquioxane, trimethylsiloxysilicate, methylpolysiloxane, stearoxytrimethylsilane

What they actually do:

Petroleum derived ingredients are pore clogging components, which work as a delivery agent, meaning they trap all other junk in the product deeper into the pores. Sometimes they may come with such hazardous ingredients as the 1,4-dioxane, a carcinogen and neurotoxin...

Parabens

Names:

acnemethylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben, butylparaben

What they are supposed to do:

Supposedly they make the mold growth stop and also extend the shelf life of the product...
