Chemicals and additives in makeup,cosmetics and food.

   Posted by: Angelvoice   in Food

Is reading on the internet about what regular schampoos and conditioner and skinproducts contains. have read a lot before about additives in food and makeup aswell.

What can one eat or use for makeup and hair nowadays.  its tricky because most products contains ingredients that can cause allergic reactions or hyper sensitivity. According to tests i got from 1,5 years ago it was at least 5 ingredients  that gave real bad reactions on my skin. Substances that is quite common  in a lot of skinproducts, salves schampoos e.t.c.

One of the allergic reactions came from a substance common in different glues. glue that they use in shoes and textiles, plasters e.t.c.   one was a blue colorative for plastic clothes. so no use buying polyester material in clothes. . another was a red colorative for regular cotton and natural material in clothes. so have to be careful which colours on clothes i may be able to buy. never know if it might contain that certain colouring. it explained a lot why i always got itchy reactions from some of my clothes.

I cannot have too hard materials on my sensitive skin either because it will irritate already raw skin. so silk without red colours in it is ok.

theres not alot to choose from but neutral schampoo and conditioner is ok.  there is just a lot of work to read everything on products to find the good ones. but my skin feel better so not much to do about it.

have found mineral makeup that doesn’t contain  parabens or perfume that doesn’t makes skin rashes  and irritated skin.

perfume free shampoos and conditioner without silicon and parabens is rare but ive found some brands to use.

I try to avoid food with a lot of sodium glutamate, sweeteners,  artificial  flavors, thickening agents diet products.

better to eat as natural as is possible and more real butter instead av margarine.

I follow the LCHF diet right now and the positive outcome of that is:

I feel better, healthier and in good condition

my hair feels less tangled

weight loss

feel young and fresh

less constantly with itching irritable skin not so much eczema anymore.

downside of the diet is:

its hard finding good ingredients for eating purposes or skin products that don’t cost a lot of money. expensive to eat good food instead of chemically fast food.

But a good health should be an investment for life so its well spent money.

don’t ya agree?
