Unfortunately, a lot of people still don’t know what they put on their skin everyday. In my opinion this is the biggest irresponsibility that you can do. You SHOULD know what you put on your skin and why and what kind of side effects the particular product can cause. This is only for your health’s sake. It is something for yourself. Check out my list of toxic ingredients commonly used in beauty products.
I am not a cosmetologist or a chemist but I do think that you don’t need to have a huge knowledge about what is good and bad for you and for your environment. You don’t need to learn a profession to tell whether a certain component of a product is good for your health or not. You know, in today’s world you can really learn everything from the internet… everything. On your own. Also you DON’T have to accept other’s opinions just because they have a degree. It is just like if a doctor were to tell you to drink some detergent.. would you drink it? Of course not!! Look after everything by yourself. I think this is the best thing you can do for yourself and of course for your environment.
What do I mean under “for your environment”? Well, if you have a baby or if you are already pregnant then I think that the worst thing you could do is to use synthetic perfumes and fragrances near to your child, including but not limited to air fresheners. This was just an example but now you know what I mean.
Besides that, many doctors are also fake in today’s world sadly. Money matters. You know a lot of marketing companies bribe them to sell their products along with pharmaceutical companies. I’m not saying that they don’t know anything and don’t listen to their advice but first always make sure if its good for you. Don’t ever trust anybody until you know their intentions. Nowadays, companies take advantage of the people’s ignorance and health problems which is so bad and sad.
Fortunately, there are still doctors whose are great and actually like to help people. There are always exceptions but first you should always make sure.
Attempts all around the world had been made to try to overrule laws regarding having to display the ingredient list on the products. I found this very outrageous. I have the right to know what the product I want to buy is made of. Just imagine, how could anybody know that an orange juice is made from real orange without anything added and not some kind of disgusting artificial chemical compound without having ingredient list on the products or labels? This is the reason why it matters a lot!
I’m a human, I need natural and organic food, beverage and products. Not artificial ones. Keep in mind that our body can’t withstand everything!
Everything has a price
If you are using products containing toxic ingredients, you are going to get serious get health problems. Same applies to food. This is a very complex process. A headache can be caused by literally anything like what you did and ate yesterday, it also can be caused by stress, lack of sleep, it can be an allergic reaction to a fragrance which irritates your body… anything. It is not the weather, it is something that your body dislikes pretty much. Don’t take medicines because that is only just a surface treatment. You must find the root of the problem.
People react differently to the same input. And this is the danger point! You may use a cream or a lipstick for even years without any real complaints then suddenly your skin become sensitive to the product. It is not normal. Unfortunately, in hindsight most of the times we can’t see the cause-and-effect relationship between the use of our favorite cosmetics and health alterations.
So what can we do, do we have to do something?
Of course, yes. Definitely. Always try to buy natural and organic cosmetics from trustworthy companies like 100% Pure, Prim Botanicals, One Love Organics, Herbivore Botanicals, Bare Bones Body Care, Meow Meow Tweet, Osmia Organics, Lotus Wei and so on. There are a LOT OF possibilities out there so you can easily switch to the natural and organic lifestyle. I can understand that somewhere it is hard because most people don’t like to change their lifestyle but it is for your own good and for your family. Be the change! Don’t except miracles.
You can joke about this saying that “we will die anyway”. You can do that… you don’t even have to listen to me. But before, please answer me ONLY ONE question.
If I tell you now, that it is possible that you will have breast cancer in few years like in 2-3 years which is a pretty short time, would you use that trash deodorant again and again, everyday? Would you ignore this, because it just can’t happen to you? Really? It is not a joke. This is a very serious problem that every 3rd woman has and this is terrifying.
Do you think that this can’t happen to you because you are a man? Well, I’m sorry but now I will wake you up from your dream world – you are NOT sacrosanct! Statistics shows that after every 3rd woman the 4th is ALWAYS a man.
Just google breast cancer and you will see how it looks like. I’m not going to upload something like that to my website because it is NSFW. But you can check it if you are interested.
Always try to get the healthiest foods and drinks and use the healthiest cosmetic products and household items. I’m working hard to write a list about natural and organic brands so please stay tuned!
The truth is, that in the 21st century your health is in YOUR hands. Whether you agree with it or not. You are responsible for your health and for your children’s health. You should know that.
I’m sorry, maybe I was a bit harsh but this is a very serious problem and not something you can easily joke around because it CAN happen to everybody today and what we only can do is to VOTE with our MONEY so companies will stop producing thrash products.
I recommend you to start using natural and organic cosmetic and household products, foods, drinks. Please just don’t be lazy. Try your best! 🙂 I believe in you and you can always tell me your stories, your problems I love to hear from you all. I’m a honest person and sincerity is very important for me, I’m not hear to preach so I will always tell you my honest opinions even if its bad. It is only for your own good.
