Harmful & Non-tested Fairness Products | Awareness

Do you know the ingredients of the products you use on your face? Do you know which ones are good and which ones are harmful in the long run? Is your product clinically tested? Do you know there are products that are harmful, that are not tested? Do you read the ingredients in the skin care products; especially skin lightening? These are a few questions you should ask today, to know what you are using.

This post is to create awareness about harmful and non-tested products being sold in the market with fancy & attractive tag lines to attract the masses. The focus is on "skin lightening" products. Skin Lightening products are popular among certain cultures and areas of the world, and are mostly sold in Asia, Africa, Middle East and Central America. Not just skin lightening creams, but other cosmetic products too that clearly mention "skin lightening". Not all products regardless of where they are made, or available, are safe. As long as they are clinically tested, have ingredients mentioned, they are safe. But, if they are not tested, have no ingredients mentioned, you need to worry and be careful.

Most of the products available in the local market doesn't have ingredients mentioned on it, are not well regulated or tested. Consumers are at risk of exposure to dangerous ingredients like "mercury". Are they worth spending a few bucks on for which you would have to pay heaps later on? Some of us take skin very lightly & for granted but, skin damage is not funny, it can damage the whole & inner you. Research on every product you use on you.

There is no harm in getting fair, the harm is in the wrong products we use to speed up the process. Most, and I will write in the caps here MOST of the products have mercury in them, and that can be hazardous to your health. Did you know mercury exposure can cause kidney damage, headache, fatigue, muscle weakness, hand tremors, depression, and inflammation of the tongue and gums.

If you experience any such issue mentioned above and you are using any skin lightening creams, regardless of where you purchased it from, check the ingredients. If the ingredients are not listed, get the product checked for mercury content. 

       Say NO to harmful products, do your research & raise awareness!

Do you check ingredients in your products?

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
