What woman doesn't want to pamper her skin with amazing products? The bitter truth however is that certain ingredients found in skincare products do more harm than good. Guest contributor Melody Cleo shares a list of harmful ingredients that you're better off avoiding.

We now live in a cosmetic world. Cosmetics enhance our looks from the roots of our hair all the way down to our toe nails. It is not a bad thing to be a cosmetic freak, but what makes some cosmetics a threat to our health are the ingredients used to make them. Here are 7 ingredients that you should watch out for when you choose and buy cosmetics for your face.

1. Parabens

Parabens are commonly used in face makeup, moisturizers, and shampoos. They easily penetrate the skin and interfere with the hormone function of the body. They are widely used for cosmetics even though they are toxic and are mostly associated with breast cancer. Cosmetics with paraben ingredients are normally mentioned in their chemical names like butylparaben, methylparaben, isobutylparaben, ethylparaben and prpylparaben. Always be on the lookout for this chemical and limit its use.
