We're convinced of this in all spheres: fashion, food, and, of course, beauty. And on top of natural products are physical scrubs made of, for example, apricot bone or walnut. But the truth is, these scrubs aren't gentle at all; they damage your skin, causing microtears. Months of use can result in a scratched epidermal layer that allows viruses and bacteria to pass through. So please use chemical scrubs instead and forget about nuts and seeds.
The same "no naturals" rule goes with vitamin C from fruits. Another lifehack from social media will literally burn your skin. Oranges, tangerines, and other C-fruits have acid that is extremely rich and can cause irritation and increase the sensitivity of the skin. So chemical vitamin C is your only friend.
