Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2016 -- Today, there are quite a number of beauty and skin care products available in the market. Many people strive to purchase some of these products, regardless of how expensive they can be. Facial scrubs are believed to be essential for skin care regimens. However, it seems that this is not always true.
There are many commercially produced facial scrubs that contain unsafe and ineffective ingredients. Some of these products even do more harm than good. They contain some hidden dangers that not many people know about.
"According to research, 60 percent of what is applied on the skin is absorbed inside the human body," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
When the skin is exposed to dangerous chemical ingredients, it could potentially jeopardize one's health. There are ways to ensure that a facial scrub is both safe and therapeutic, and one is to make a homemade facial scrub.
Turmeric is believed to be a safer skin care ingredient for facial scrubs. Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It is believed to offer a myriad of health benefits and even fight a range of conditions.
Turmeric can be used to deeply clean the face and exfoliate the skin. Unlike the best-selling, commercially-produced facial scrubs, turmeric does not have jagged particles that could produce tiny cuts on the face. These tiny cuts could invite bacteria, which results in inflammation, redness, and blemishes.
Using turmeric facial scrubs won't also expose the skin to an emulsifier, which is present in many commercially available facial scrubs. Emulsifiers are believed to harm the natural protective layer of the skin, and cause it to dry out and age faster.
There are also facial scrubs that contain preservatives such as parabens. Parabens are dangerous to human health and are even called by doctors as endocrine disruptors, which jeopardizes the hormonal system. Parabens have been associated with the development of breast cancer.
With so many harmful chemicals in a majority of skin care products, experts recommend that consumers should take precautions while shopping. It is also best that they make their own homemade skin care products. Turmeric facial scrub can be made by mixing a flour, filtered water, and turmeric powder.
Turmeric has always been thought to be beneficial for the skin and overall health. It is even available through supplementation. Many people today incorporate turmeric in their diet to take advantage of its therapeutic benefits (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
