Here's Another Way to Wear Persper-eez

We’ve heard from a couple of women that they are attaching the pads directly to their bra, laying the bra down on a flat surface and attaching the pads on the bottom edge of the bra, then putting it on. Let us know if you’ve tried it too. info@persper-eez.com.

Beauty and the Synthetic Beast

skincare

Dr. Axe

Everyone wants to look their best. And by society’s standards that means perfect skin, the right makeup, and a toned and tanned body. So we buy the newest products, slather on moisturizer, apply and reapply our makeup, and then remove it with the latest and greatest removal products.
Not only can our beauty regimen be expensive, it may also be threatening our health.

Reading the labels on beauty products is just as important as those on our food products. There is little to no federal regulation around cosmetics and skin care products. What we put in our hair and on our skin gets absorbed into our body, and if there’s little regulation, we don’t really know what we’re using and how it might affect us. Little research has been done to establish how much exposure to these chemicals, and exactly which chemicals, can cause adverse reactions.

This article isn’t to scare you away from using beauty products, but to raise awareness and help you become an educated consumer. Take as good care of what goes on your body as what goes in. Read labels. Research products and ingredients, and make informed decisions. YOU are your own best advocate!

When it comes to skin care and beauty products. keep in mind that expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better. The chemicals and synthetics used in those super costly products can be just as detrimental as what’s used in less expensive items. Here are a few of the most common to be aware of:

Synthetic Fragrances may be listed simply as “fragrance” which will be a combination of the cheapest ingredients the company has access to. These combinations can cause skin irritation, headaches, vomiting, and rashes. No wonder signs have popped up in public places declaring a “fragrance-free zone.”

Propylene Glycol is a petroleum by-product used as a humectant (to retain moisture) – as well as industrial anti-freeze to de-ice airplanes. Even a tiny percentage in beauty products can cause skin issues like dermatitis and hives. Look for it in moisturizers, shampoo/conditioners, hair spray, and sunscreen.

Sodium Laurel Sulfate, used in the majority of personal care products for its foaming abilities, can cause urinary tract infections, eye irritations, hair loss, even allergic reactions. Can be found in acne treatment, mascara, and body wash.

Parabens act as antimicrobials and preservatives, while Phthalates are used to interact with other ingredients to create a consistent solution (e.g. to keep hair spray from making hair too stiff). Both are difficult to identify when reading product labels as they are not always listed separately (often included within the general “fragrance” category). They have even been found in “green” products. The best way to avoid them is to look for products that are “paraben-free” and “phthalate-free. According to Julia Brody of the Silent Spring Institute, “that eliminates a whole class of chemicals.” Choose plant-based products. And avoid fragrance altogether.

So do we NEVER use another beauty product? Never wash our face or moisturize our skin? That would not be possible or even good for our skin. However, do-it-yourself and organic products can be better and safer for our own use, as well as for our children. While they may be more expensive at times, you usually use far less for each application which means you buy them less often.

Here are a few suggestions and studies for you to investigate. Remember, an educated consumer is a healthy consumer. Do your research as an advocate for your family’s health, and be beautiful inside and out!
