jeudi 29 octobre 2015
When you see the beautifully arranged shelves of supermarkets and cosmetic stores, with colored tubes and inviting which promises youth, the last thing you think about is the huge number of chemicals that you use on your skin daily. More exactly 515.
The figure emerges from a study made by Bionsen and shows how many synthetic chemicals are applied every day by a woman who usually takes care of herself. From soap, shampoo, face creams and body makeup products, all contain various substances that have side effects: irritation, allergies, hormonal disorders, fertility problems and etc.

It’s hard enough to remove all these products  from daily routine but not impossible. All you have to do is to get back a bit toward nature.  I do not know if you noticed but many wonder cosmetics claim to have the composition of herbal extracts, olive oil, honey.  So why use them when they are attached to a mountain of chemicals. Why instead of a honey mask bought from supermarkets not to use a mask made quickly in the house, instead of balsam why not try a mask for brittle hair, why not try an acne remedy based on clay, tomato juice or vinegar?
