Tips for using skin care cosmetics safely

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which regulates cosmetics in the United States defines cosmetics as: "intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the structure or bodily functions." This broad definition also includes any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product.

Distinguish between producers of decorative cosmetics and cosmetic skin care. Decorative cosmetics include lipstick, foundation, blush, nail polish, mascara, eyeliner, cosmetics etc. skin care includes products to cleanse the skin of the face and body skin, creams and lotions to moisturize your face and body, sunscreens to protect skin from harmful UV radiation, and products to repair or hide skin imperfections such as acne, wrinkles, dark circles, etc.

In ancient times, cosmetics were used by people. They used harmful substances such as mercury and lead. Many negative side effects have occurred after using cosmetics, such as: blindness after eyelash mascara used, even after the death of cosmetics containing mercury and lead used. Those are happened because there is no regulation of the factory.
