Massage a little antifreeze into the skin for silky smoothness. Apply your false eyelashes with automotive adhesive for a secure hold.
These are beauty tips that can seem downright bizarre, but believe it or not, most people, without knowing it, do it every day of their lives. Many products made for our health, well-being, and beautification can contain some highly toxic ingredients.
A chemical commonly found in beauty products is sodium lauryl sulfate. It is located in 90% of foaming products. This includes car washes and engine degreasers, as well as shampoos, soaps, and bubble baths.
It is even disguised in some pseudo-natural products with the description “comes from coconut.” When tested on animals, sodium lauryl sulfate caused eye damage, complications in the central nervous system, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, diarrhea, and even death.
There are risks that you want to take to soap up every day.
Another toxic chemical commonly found in most cosmetics is propylene glycol.
First of all, propylene glycol is strong enough to remove barnacles from boats. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns against any skin exposure to this severe oil derivative.
The consequences are brain, liver, and kidney disorders. Think about it the next time you use your favorite deodorant.
Mineral oil is yet another chemical that you can find in most beauty products. It is a by-product of oil that coats the skin like plastic, clogging the pores.
The function of the skin decreases, as a result, causing premature aging. Baby oil is made with 100% mineral oil.
Various products may contain only small amounts of these toxic ingredients. However, over time, these toxins can accumulate in the body, causing devastating effects on your health.
There are likely to be no government regulations on beauty products anytime soon. However, some precautions can be taken to avoid dangerous products.
Buy beauty care items from retailers that offer natural and environmentally safe products. Besides, add a detoxifying supplement to your daily regimen to cushion the effects of these toxic ingredients as they accumulate in the body.
You should raise a red flag if the list of ingredients for your beauty products looks like a chemistry report. Make sure you do your research on the products in your beauty routine.
Toxic records and directories of cosmetic ingredients can be easily accessed on the Internet. Once you educate yourself, there is absolutely no reason why you have to die to be beautiful.
