New You Health Tip: Harmful toxins in our daily care products could be affecting our health.

If you were told that your lotions, deodorants, hair care products, and makeup were made up of poisons, would you still use them? Our skin is the largest organ in our body and is constantly being exposed to harmful toxins. Many essential products we use on a daily basis are full of parabens known to encourage breast cancer cell growth, sulfates and formaldehyde, which are both known carcinogens. Propylene glycol, which is an anti-freeze linked to kidney and liver disease can also be found in our everyday products. The good news is there are alternatives to toxic products. Read labels and keep an eye out for harmful ingredients to contribute to your over all health.
