Original perfumes can cause spots on your skin

It is a pleasure for us to describe some of the advantages of our products over the original perfumes. In the same way, educate about the adverse effects that may occur on their skin once an original perfume is applied and exposed to the sun directly. In fact it is not the perfume that stains or does not stain the skin. According to a publication of the Healthy Magazine in the United Kingdom, what can do it are certain compounds that are part of it. It is alcohol, azmizcle or bergamot, among others. So, what happens is that not only the perfume can stain, but any other cosmetic or hygienic product that contains the same ingredients and that is exposed to the sun. When the perfume or the cosmetics applied on the skin come into contact with the sun, a reaction to the photoxicity occurs. In this way there is an excess of pigmentation, which ends up in a small burn, which is actually the spot that becomes visible to us. Skin blemishes are formed as a defense mechanism, to prevent ultraviolet light from damaging cell nuclei and prevent premature aging or skin cancer.

There are several recommendations that you could take into account when exposing yourself to the sun directly.
• Always use specific cosmetics suitable for each type of skin. They must be of good quality and not contain alcohol. We must also bear in mind that it is very important that both sun creams, such as gel and shampoos or sun lotion after sun bath are hypoallergenic (products that do not prevent allergies, but do get them to develop less) and that are dermatologically tested .

• Before and during exposure to sunlight, the use of perfumes and colognes, especially those containing bergamot and musk, should be avoided. It is best to go to beaches and swimming pools after a shower, without makeup or perfume containing alcohol. For those who want, despite the recommendations, apply a fragrance, experts recommend that you do it in covered areas that will not be exposed to the sun, such as under the hair.



Taking into account the effects of fragrances that contain alcohol when exposed to the sun, we encourage you to use fragrances that do not contain alcohol and are chemical free. At Elixir Extracts we offer a wide variety of completely organic alcohol-free fragrances and we invite you to wear our collections of men, women and essential oils.
