Paraben Free Skin Care
Did you know paraben free skin care is a solution we offer here at the National Laser Institute Med Spa? In today’s blog, we’ll give you the facts on what it takes to have beautiful, glowing skin by experiencing the healthy, cost effective, and time saving benefits of our paraben free skin care alternatives at the National Laser Institute Med Spa.
A recent study done by University of California, Berkeley found everyday skin care products overload our bodies with so much endocrine-disrupting chemicals that taking just small breaks from these products can lead to a significant drop in the levels of these harmful chemicals. The purpose of the study was to create awareness about chemicals in skin care products and to help make people more conscious about what they’re using on their skin.
Paraben Free Skin Care
Skin care items like makeup, facial cleansers, perfumes, and sunscreens contain chemicals like phthalates, parabens, triclosan and oxybenzone, which have been shown to disrupt the body’s endocrine system, Medical Daily reported in an article titled “Traditional Cosmetics, Soaps Drastically Increase Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals In Body”. These disruptions can cause hormone imbalances and neurobehavioral problems, obesity, diabetes and cancer.
The study revealed “teen girls may be at particular risk since it’s a time of rapid reproductive development, and research has suggested that they use more personal care products per day than the average adult woman.” Moreover, the research team found that by taking a break and using chemical and paraben free skin care for just 3 days led to a reduction in levels of the endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
Overall the study shows the clear need to avoid chemical-laden skin care products. Simple actions can be taken, such as choosing paraben free skin care, to get beautiful, healthy, glowing skin without disrupting your endocrine system.
