7 Skin Care "Rules" You Need to Break
Think your routine is working for you? Wait until you see these sneaky ways your skin care habits are causing wrinkles, zits, and more
Rule No. 7: "Natural" means it's gentleSpunt and O'Connor are big advocates of using natural products, but they point out that Mother Nature can still do some major damage to your skin. For example, tea tree oil, used sparingly, can be a great way to fight zits. But if you apply too much, your skin can end up as red and flaky as it would have been after a repeated dousing of benzoyl peroxide.
The lesson: Whether a product is "organic" or completely cooked up in a lab, follow the instructions carefully and remember, more is rarely better when it comes to skin care.
