Are you Dying to be Beautiful
We all want to look and feel beautiful, but ignoring the ingredients of your favourite beauty products, even those labeled ‘natural’ or ‘organic’, could result in long term and serious health issues!
Your beauty products may smell incredible, make your hair feel softer, your skin smoother and you believe you look fabulous, however – if you are not paying attention to the ingredients you are probably exposing yourself to a toxic cocktail of chemicals every single day.
Recently an exponential rise in health problems such as cancer, autoimmunity, infertility, hormonal imbalances, birth defects, obesity, mental health, autism and learning difficulties has arisen.
These problems have been linked to exposure to chemicals and often those chemicals are found in beauty products.
Sadly, most people assume their products have been tested for long-term safety and would never dream they could cause negative health effects.
But did you know
- The cosmetics industry is self-regulating, meaning those profiting from the sales of a product also determine its safety?
- No health studies or testing are required to be carried out prior to selling cosmetic products – the chemicals used being deemed safe until proven otherwise?
- Perfume, one seemingly innocent ingredient, combines hundreds of untested chemicals that companies are not required to disclose and can be one of the most toxic of all beauty products?
Our skin, the body’s largest organ, will absorb 60% of the chemicals placed on it directly into the blood stream in just 6 seconds.
Considering our skin does not have digestive enzymes or a liver to break down these chemicals, putting them on your skin is potentially more dangerous than eating them!
Your body is designed to handle a certain level of toxins but the reality is there are 1000s of untested chemicals used today and our bodies become overwhelmed by the constant onslaught.
The best you can do is to use products that are the most natural and unaffected by chemicals as you can find.
