Cancer is caused by a breakdown of your cell's DNA, which results in mutation. The mutation can be either benign or harmful.
The sun's rays can cause Cancer because they infiltrate the cell and cause damage to its DNA. (Your pale skin lacks melatonin which is a protectant from the sun. That's why you have a higher risk of skin cancer.)
Rubbing alcohol can damage cells by drying them out, but it does not modify DNA. Therefore, it can not cause Cancer.
I doubt it. Buy an oil-free sunscreen. Neutrogena makes a couple of them.
No. So rub away!
yes actually people that use mouthwash long term; daily have a higher rate of mouth cancer. You should use mouthwash that doen'st have alcohol.
And try witch hazel it is better and will close up any pores you have.
No, most of the ingredients in all face toners are nothing more than alcohol, there just charging you for the scent, and color.
No skin cancer, I am pretty sure but, might switch off to witch hazel it is not as harsh and has the same affect. Definitely use sun screen (non-oil based) year around.
you must know the reason of your oil skin,if you want to get rid of it without harmful method.
you can get some traditional Chinese medicine advices from internet or books ,it will show you how to get rid of the oil from your body by diet etc. ,not rubbing alcohol on your skin
