You may not realize it, but some of the products you think are helping your skin could actually be doing serious damage. Because excessive chemical exposure can have a negative impact on your skin’s appearance and health, it’s vital for you to think carefully about the ingredients found in your everyday products. Even applying sunscreen or makeup could increase your exposure to toxins.

Consider these examples:

Sunscreen: Protecting against Sun Damage or Creating Health Problems?

Sun protection is good, but exposure to certain common sunscreen ingredients is not. Check the bottle of sunscreen you’re using. Does it contain benzophenone? If so, it might be a good idea to swap it out. Benzophenone is a chemical that’s been linked to cellular damage and even cancer.

Cosmetics: Beautifying Your Appearance or Causing More Breakouts?

But if you’re choosing makeup made with certain toxic oils or waxes, you could be exacerbating the problem by further clogging your pores. Whatever your skin’s condition, you should be aware that ingredients in your makeup could also pose other potentially serious health risks.

In fact, any time you’re using chemicals on your skin, there is potential risk. That’s why it’s so important to know how to evaluate the products you’re using.

Catalina Ruiz NP and Maria Victoria Ruiz MD grew up in a house with 12 siblings. (Yes. 12!) Needless to say, they spent a lot of time dealing with more than their fair share of hair issues. When they set out to start a Medical Spa in 2003 it was with the simple goal of helping men and women look and feel their best by providing the highest quality services in an approachable neighborhood environment.

After getting their start in a tiny space in Lincoln Park the office was moved to its current location in Lakeview. An obvious choice for the sisters, who decided to expand their business in the same building their father practiced medicine for over 40 years!

Fourteen years and thousands of clients later, we’ve grown our list of services beyond Laser Hair Removal to include Botox, Laser Rejuvenation and a full Clinical Skin Care Menu with the goal of helping you come in and leave confident.
