This is a common term used for skin care products that do not clog the skin pores or cause comedones. Open Comedones/ Closed Comedones Open comedones are whiteheads while closed comedones are blackheads. They are a result of accumulation of dirt and debris within the skin pores and subsequent blockage of the same. Physical Sunscreens These sunscreens reflect off and scatter the UV rays of the sun when they reach the skin surface. Physical sunscreens are advisable for people with sensitive skin. Common ingredients of physical sunscreen are Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. Parabens They are the artificial preservatives used in skin care products in order to prolong their shelf life. Though they are important to prevent the development of micro organisms in skin care products, but they can be harmful for the skin. It is not advisable to use products that contain a large concentration of parabens. Smaller concentrations of the same are safe though. Stratum Corneum This is the outermost layer of the skin. Skin cells that are formed within the deeper layers of the skin take aboutdays to reach the stratum corneum. The cells in this layer are all dead and require exfoliation to clear off. However, even though the cells are dead, they form the first line of defense for our skin. They prevent water loss and protect the skin from environmental toxins and UV rays. Surfactants These ingredients help to reduce surface tension between skin and the skin care product that you apply and enable it to spread better.
