Using conventional moisturizers comes with risks. Below, we’ve outlined 6 reasons to avoid them like the plague:
1. Moisturizers clog your pores:
Moisturizer can potentially clog your pores, especially if it’s too rich, leading to blemishes and breakouts. Vegetable and mineral oils often clog pores by sitting on the surface of the skin, and water-soluble, vitamin-packed moisturizers can oxidize or become rancid, which may prompt breakouts.
2. Moisturizers increase the risk of skin cancer:
A study has found that topical applications of many conventional moisturizers could increase skin cancer risk.
3. Moisturizers dry out your skin:
Moisturizers are incapable of penetrating the outer layer of skin to address the underlying cause of dry skin. Unfortunately, because the moisturizing effect of conventional moisturizers convinces the brain that the skin is adequately hydrated, it drastically reduces the production of the skin’s own natural moisture. The result is skin that is even drier than when you began using the moisturizer.
4. Moisturizers can lead to severe chronic skin conditions:
Conventional moisturizers are thick and tend to clog pores which leads to a higher risk of more severe skin conditions.
5. Moisturizers can lead to health problems:
Moisturizers often inhibit the skin’s ability to breathe and perspire naturally. Perspiration and breathing is how the skin excretes toxic buildup in the body. By restricting this mechanism, the body is more prone to sickness and other health problems.
6. Moisturizers are bad on the environment:
Most conventional moisturizers contain preservatives and other chemical agents that are bad for the environment. One study found that oxybenzone, a substance in many moisturizing and sun blocking products, is actually destroying coral reefs around the globe.
While there are many reasons to avoid conventional moisturizers, it is possible to keep the skin hydrated and even protected against allergens and irritants without exposing yourself to common risks associated with moisturizer use.
Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion that has the dual effect of keeping the skin hydrated and protected against harmful skin irritants and allergens. It works by forming a bond with the outer layer of skin, locking in the skin’s own natural moisture and oil, and providing a natural buffer against caustic substances the skin may come in contact with.
Because Gloves In A Bottle is not petroleum or oil based, it doesn’t have the pore-clogging effects of conventional moisturizers. It does not have parabens, oxybenzone, or anything else that is harmful to the body or to the environment. It also allows the skin the breathe and perspire naturally.
Gloves In A Bottle is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, water resistant and not sticky. Once you apply it, it stays on until the skin exfoliates (about 4 hours), even after repeated washing.
Conventional moisturizers are ineffective and potentially dangerous. Why take the risks when a good shielding lotion will do the trick without all the negative side effects? Get your bottle of Gloves In A Bottle now!
