Is Your Beauty Routine Causing Long-Term Health Damage?

by on Oct.21, 2009, under Posts>Opinions>Beauty

“Did you know that putting chemicals on your skin can be far worse than ingesting them?

This is in large part because when you eat something the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help break it down and flush it out of your body.

When the chemical cocktail is delivered into your blood stream via your skin, however, it bypasses this built-in protective filtration process, so you have decreased protection against the toxins.

There are literally thousands of chemicals used in personal care products, and only a tiny fraction of them have ever been tested for safety.”

FDA Warns About Eyelash Thickener Claims

by on Oct.08, 2009, under Posts>Opinions>Beauty

“The U.S. FDA has warned Allergan Inc. that the Web site for its eyelash thickener Latisse is misleading. The site downplays or fails to mention risks associated with the product.

The Latisse site either doesn’t mention potential side effects including bacterial eye infections, allergic reactions, excess hair growth outside the intended treatment area, and permanent changes in iris and eyelid pigmentation, or presents them in very small text.”

Being Beautiful Was Never So Environmentally Friendly

by on Sep.16, 2009, under Posts>Opinions>Eco Fashion

The following quotes are from “Being Beautiful Was Never So Environmentally Friendly” by Jesmine G. on care2.com.

“it’s not just the kinds of clothes you wear that determine your eco-fashion level (or lack thereof), but also how you buy, clean and take care of your clothes.”

“Not all companies are using sustainable practices and may just use any kind of green marketing as a way to attract environmentally friendly consumers.”

“Buying clothing made of organic cotton can help but not if the actual process of treating the shirt is as harsh as that used for regular cotton tees.”

When it all started – from the Fashion Alternative Board (FAB)

by on Sep.09, 2009, under Posts>News & Commentary

“Here’s my theory: After the stock market plunge in 2000-2001, clothing retailers panicked and started trying to cut costs. In 2002, they started selling skin tight clothes that cost less to manufacture because they used less fabric. These clothes were embarrassing to wear, yet many women bought them, either because there was nothing else in the stores or because they thought it was “fashion.”” – from “When it all started” by Anne on FAB Fashion Alternative Board Message Board.

US university students ignore tanning lamp risks – from The Lancet

by on Jul.29, 2009, under Posts>Tips>Skin Care

“Despite awareness of the risks associated with ultraviolet light exposure, university students continue to use tanning lamps to get a so-called “healthy” tan, US researchers report this week. “This is a highly educated segment of society. If anybody should have knowledge of the risks, they should”, says study author Evan Farmer, dean of Eastern Virginia Medical School (Norfolk, VA, USA). “But awareness of the dangers doesn’t alter behavior in the face of enormous pressures to conform and achieve the ‘right’ image.”” – Read the whole article here: “US university students ignore tanning lamp risks“.

Temperature and Weight and AC in the summer

by on Jul.02, 2009, under Posts>Tips>Keep In Shape

We all know that taking a hot bath can help lose some weight. In fact, heat does help people lose weight or keep in shape. People who live in a hot weather tend to weight less than people who live in a cold weather.

I think the availability of air conditioning in the summer may play a role in keeping people from losing weight in the summer. That may be another reason for people in the developed world to be more likely to be overweight.

Air conditioning may keep us more awake and energetic. But it also makes us eat more to keep ourselves warm. So if you are serious in trying to lose weight, do not turn on the air conditioner in the summer. Just let yourself sweat and you will lose some weight.
