Shampoos, body lotions, hair sprays, and many other products are essentials we just cannot live without, especially in such a weird climate. But apparently, when we’re applying all these on our bodies, we are also baring our bodies to over 500 different chemicals.

Yes, you read that right. Over 500 chemicals. Every single day!

In a research done by Bionsen, a natural deodorant company, which was covered by Daily Mail, they found that the average woman’s daily grooming and make-up routine means she hosts a staggering 515 different synthetic chemicals on her body everyday. Which means that the lipsticks, the eye shadows, and the tans we love so much are in fact harming our bodies.

Here’s an infographic to help you understand this better:


Well, this will not deter us from using these products, because quite frankly we do need all of them. But then, what can be the solution?

Well, the easiest one is to buy products that are either natural or organic as they contain almost zero harmful additives. What you can also do is read the labels on your grooming and beauty products, as a certain amount of chemicals in a product does not have dire repercussions. 

Consider this a wake up call and switch to natural, maybe?
