What to say no to
For great skin, there are a few things you may need to blacklist. Dr. Agarwal advises that you read the label on your products. She elaborates, “Mineral oil, derived from petroleum, is often included in anti-ageing products to give softness. But on application, it can form a layer on the skin and block pores, leading to breakouts and irritation. DEA, MEA and TEA (ammonia compounds) are also associated with allergic reactions and dryness and should be avoided along with sulphates that have drying and corrosive properties that aggravates wrinkles and lines.” With respect to your diet, Dr. Magoo suggests avoiding acidic foods.
