This is why you should NOT go to nail salons in malls/shopping centres. The product they claim to be “gel powder” does not exist! If you smell a strong odour when you go in/ walk past they use MMA which is ILLEGAL in Canada! This should never be used on your nails. Methyl methacrylate, or MMA, originated in the dental industry for making crowns and bridges. It is also used as bone cement by orthopedic surgeons during joint replacement procedures, in some flooring products, resins, and Plexiglas. This chemical was not designed to come in contact with skin or nails. This can cause severe damage on your nails! #themoreyouknow#dontsupport#stayaway
WHAT'S ON YOUR SKIN / there is now a huge global movement for taking more notice of what you put IN your body, avoiding processed ingredients and food additives. 👍🏼That same mindset shift is happening when it comes to skincare. What we put on our skin every day is just as important as what we eat and more of us are becoming concious of our skincare choices. 🌱🐰👩🏽 So with this in mind, here is a list of three ingredients, commonly found in skincare and cosmetics, that really shouldn’t be on your skin.
👇🏼 👇🏼 👇🏼
Parabens - unfortunately, parabens possess estrogen-mimicking properties that are associated with increased risk of cancer, and more so with breast cancer. The chemicals are absorbed into the skin through such products as deodorants, makeup, body washes and facial cleansers.
Propylene Glycol - found in moisturisers, sunblocks, makeup, shampoos and conditioners this small organic alcohol is commonly used as a skin conditioning agent. Propylene glycol has been associated with skin diseases such as hives, dermatitis and eczema.
Formaldehyde - found in commercial cosmetic brands formaldehyde (FRP’s) has been linked to an array of cancers, as well as respiratory damage, harm to the immune system and child development. And if that doesn’t put you off, maybe knowing that it is very widely used for embalming bodies may seal the deal for you.
CHOOSE YOUR SKINCARE WISELY and always read the label! 🙌🏼
Nur du und ich, und die Zeiger, sie dreh'n.
Allein auf den Straßen, sie weiß, dass sie lebt.
Sie genießt diese Nacht, sie ist frei. Ich bin ihre Droge, nur ich mach' sie high.
Doch statt zu leben, bleib' ich lieber allein 🥀
