Myth No. 7: “Natural” Products Are Always Gentle
When you see the word “natural” stamped on a product don’t assume that it’s gentle on your skin. While many dermatologists praise all natural products, they need to be used in moderation just like any other product. For example, tea tree oil can take care of those zits, but you only need a small amount to get great results. If you use too much, your skin can become red and flaky. Imagine dousing your skin repeatedly with benzoyl peroxide. Yeah, that’s how bad.
Instead, the experts say to always read the labels and apply properly, no matter if it’s natural or not.
