Many times, we apply many things in our face without knowing it's not for the face. Sometimes to look good and sometimes to make your skin healthier but some of these things may unknowingly harming your skin, and you may not even know about that. Below mentioned are the 8 things you should never put on your face.

1. Baking Soda

Many people use baking soda as a scrub because it is cheap. You should know about its high pH. It can destroy your skin. Either if the Ph is too high or too low, it can damage your skin. The value of ph is between 0 and 14. The Ph of baking soda is 9 which is more likely to damage and burn the delicate skin of your face. It is safe to use in other parts of the body but not on the delicate skin of your face.

2. Lemon juice

There are mainly 2 reasons not to apply lemon juice in your face. One is due to its ph. The ph of lemon juice is 2. It makes it acidic. The second reason not to use lemon juice in your face is that it is a photosynthesizer. Your skin may be burned due to sunlight.


3. Body Lotion

As the name says, the body lotion is made for your body. Your face skin is more delicate and thin as compared to your body. So, avoid using body lotion for your face, use a face wash instead. Body lotions are made for think skin, and you should use something else for your face instead of a body lotion.

4. Hot Water

Many of us wash our face with hot water. It should not be done not even in the hot shower. It absorbs moisture from your face and makes your skin dry. Even in winters, you should use moderate warm water as your skin is already dry and using warm water can make it drier. So, Avoid taking hot showers on your face. It doesn't harm your body that much, but it does harm your face due to the thinner skin.


5. Nail Polish

Although people don’t use Nail Polish in their face. Do not even use it even if you are going to a theme party or say a Halloween party. Use paint made for face instead. Even if you want your face to brighten up, don’t use Nail Polish. They are meant for your nails and should be kept to them. They have acrylic molecules which will make your face skin dry.

6. Hair Spray

This can be mentioned in some of the DIY articles that Hairspray can be used as a makeup for the beard. In reality, you should never use Hairspray on your face as it contains lacquers and alcohol which will dry the delicate skin of your face. Do not put this in your eyebrows.


7. Hair Color

Along with hairspray, you should not use hair color in your face. If you want to match your eyebrows with hair color, use brow-mascara or try eye-brow pencils. It won’t harm your skin and work well. You should not be using hair color even in eyebrows or beard. 

8. Rubbing alcohol

Many beauty experts suggest Rubbing alcohol as it may fix your broken skin and can also be used to dry the oily skin. At the same time, it also damages your healthy skin cells. Many cases it causes skin irritation. Use some other alternatives instead.

In short, if you don’t want your face to be damaged or dried up. Do not use the things mentioned above on your face. Use the alternatives that are made for your skin. There are many other things available in the market which are made just for your face. Use them.
