Ingredients to Avoid in Cosmetics

SKIN IS THE BODY’S LARGEST ORGAN AND ABSORBS WHAT YOU PUT ONTO IT. ALWAYS READ THE INGREDIENT LABELS AND KNOW WHAT’S IN YOUR PRODUCTS.

Its true! What you put onto your skin can go into your body to affect health and wellness . Beauty at the cost of your health . . isn’t worth it . Right? Why shall we make our body absorb chemicals instead of the ingredients provided by nature ? Switching to organic skincare is not so difficult , just be informed and check the ingredients list before using the product on your skin .

I liked this infographic shared by Natural Healthy Concepts about the chemicals that one should avoid while buying products for their skin and hair .

In addition to these , I also found some ingredients that are not healthy for us , like –

SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES – They are realted to headaches , dizziness , allergic rashes, skin discoloration , and skin irritation . Essential oils are the safest alternatives to sythetic fragrances .

Mineral Oil – It is a by product of petroleum that coats the skin like plastic and clogs the pores . Baby Oil is 100% mineral oil. Hence , avoid it .

Methylisothiazolinone ,Lead ,Aluminium , Isopropyl (SD-40) , Petrolatum , Synthetic colorants , DEET , Formaldehyde & Toluene

I believe – If we can take care of our skin using the ingredients offered by our mother earth , then why shall we use chemicals on our skin.
