Want to preserve your youthful look? Start by avoiding the preservatives found in your beauty and skin care products
Parabens are one of the most commonly used preservatives in beauty and skin care products. Scientists in labs have found them to be toxins that act as hormone disruptors. They are suspected to be carcinogenic.
Government regulations allow for a certain amount of parabens in each product, which is determined to be safe for humans. Although manufacturers follow these restrictions, the problem is in the cumulated exposure to parabens. If you apply multiple products to your skin on a daily basis, chances are you’re exposing yourself to too much parabens.
So do yourself a favour, and look out for these preservatives in your skin care products, avoid them, and make more sensible choices when purchasing your next beauty kit.
