Increasingly one hears of women with hormone imbalance problems, malfunctioning thyroid and a host of other problems like PCOS, infertility and the list is endless. What is more alarming is the age at which women seem to be getting these problems seems to be reducing. Younger and younger women seem to be at a risk of disruptions that cause a range of issues- from hair loss, bad skin, insomnia, mood swings and even depression.
What most major companies in the beauty business will not want advertised is that fact that many mainstream cosmetics and beauty products contain chemicals and other derivatives that are not skin and body friendly and contribute to overall hormonal disruption.
Some of the main ingredients you should watch out for are SLE, SLS and ethanolomines used to make products foamy that have been clearly identified as cancerous. DEG is very harmful for the kidney and liver and causes disruption and depression in the central nervous system.
While Mercury, lead and synthetic fragrances are better known as poisonous and hormone disruptors, formaldehyde is another lesser known carcinogenic agent used as an adhesive in make -up accessories like fake eyelashes. Fragrances cause headaches, dizziness and nausea while the role of parabens now has been clearly identified in causing breast cancer.
So what is the way out?
Apart from carefully checking the ingredient labels on any product you are using externally and internally, the best way to flush out already present toxins in the body is by staying well hydrated with at least 8 glasses of water a day, an exercise routine that facilitates good elimination and a high nutrition and fibre diet that supports over all wellbeing.
In an age where knowledge and know how is easily accessible through the internet, in keeping with traditional Ayurvedic principles of good health ,be careful that the products you chose for your skin are no different than those you chose for your stomach.
Chose a brand that you know is True to Earth where you can BeSureit'sPure.!
