We primp. We powder. We slab on cream after cream like there is no tomorrow. With so much emphasis these days on a youthful glow, wrinkle-free skin, fairness and clarity, is it any wonder the cosmetic industry has become such a big business?

However, did you know that the dressing table is on of the most dangerous area of your house?

No, not because of the mess it’s in but because of its role as a potential toxic dump. If you thought your innocent-looking jar of moisturize can do no harm but bring only goodness, think again. In the big land of beauty products lie a toxic swamp of dangerous ingredients, which if used over time can case cancer or reproductive damage.

Nearly one-third of the products contained ingredients calssified as possible carcinogens. What is even more astounding is that 54 tested products even violate recommendation for safe use.

” Women use products full of dubious ingredients every day, unkowningly exposing themselves to carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxins allergens and irritants” says Kim Erickson, in her book Drop Dead Gorgeous.

Generally, most cosmetic products follow international guidelines and therefore should not contain harmful ingredients. Some ingredients are more prone to case allergy in people with sensitive skin e.g. fragrance, paraban, colors.

If you know you have sensitive skin, look out for products that are tailored for your skin. Be careful of what products claim- the best things to do is to actually read the label list properly instead of being tempted by what it claims to do.

“If you care what you put into your body, you should care what you put it on,” says Erickson
