Dear Spandana,

Everyone knows that there are chemicals in every cosmetic and beauty products. They are not better than the naturals. So, it will be better to avoid them. No doubt every man and woman use it regularly in day to day life. But i will always prefer the natural only.

Thanking you

Cosmetic products are become the necessity of today as it contains lot of chemicals so these are also not good for skin.They can give you many side effects if you will not use them properly.

Always use good cosmetic products, there are many cosmetic companies which are introducing herbal products so you can try them instead of chemical ones.

Do not use them when it is not necessary for example when your are in home and not have any plan to go out than do not wear makeup. Always remove make before going to bed.

Eat healthy diet and drink lot of water and other liquid products which make your skin internally good and you look beautiful without make up also.

The use cosmetic and beauty products is not so good in terms of health issues but still they can be used for special occasions where is it really neccesary.

Beauty products which are made of aloe vera, herbs, fruits and vegetables are not much damaging to the skin because they maintain the moisture level in the skin.

So cosmetics which are produced from chemicals are really dangerous. They might be very good looking for your skin but they damage the layer of the skin and some chemicals cause allergies, cancers, etc.

So be aware of the content from which they are made and try to use more natural products like fruits and vegetable pastes.

Hope it helps.

It is not that beauty and cosmetic products are always harmful.There are many products that are very necessary to overcome problems like acme,wrinkles,ageing skin.
However,these products are made of chemicals which can cause harm to our skin. Hence one need to always select the product by keeping your skin-type in mind. Every person has different skin type and if there is a product that works on anyone else will also work on you.If you have sensitive skin look for product that are made only for sensitive skin.
In addition,we have herbal products in market. But always look for 'natural and organic products' because in these products the amount of synthetic chemicals are very low which is good for your skin health.

Cosmetic products do add to one's beauty. Prefer herbal products over synthetic / chemical one. Remove make-up before going to bed. Wash your face after removing make-up. Some chemicals can give rise to allergic reaction / skin problems like redness, itching. Select good quality products. Don't go for cheap one.
Prefer herbal products which contain turmeric, amla, chandan ( sandal wood),etc. Very strong chemicals can affect skin especially facial skin.

As they contain chemicals, some of them may cause allergic reactions to our face and destroy our beauty and sometimes it may be the cause of recurrent acne
