If you’re looking for one of the best anti aging tips around you’ll get it today. About the best anti aging tip that I can give you is to stay healthy, and one of the best ways to stay healthy is to avoid mainstream anti aging products that contain chemicals that may damage your health.
Why is the best anti aging tip to stay healthy? Because staying healthy means that your body will show it. Your body, and your skin, reflect your overall state of health and if you’re state of health is poor then your skin will probably be poor as well. It’s very hard to have great looking glowing skin if the rest of your body is unhealthy.
And although it may seem strange to say it, particularly if this is the first time that you’ve heard about this, one of the things that can damage your health is to use mainstream anti-aging products. This is because they are laden with man-made chemicals, many of which are known to be bad for us, and in some cases are known to cause cancer.
Today I want to look at one of the most common ingredients found in so many anti ageing products available on the market. Fragrances. In just about all of the mainstream skin care products you see on the shelves of your local store you will find a fragrance. This includes many products other than anti aging skin care products, for example deodorants, and many other products.
I can almost hear you asking what is the problem with fragrances? Surely fragrances make me smell nice and there’s nothing wrong with smelling nice is there? Don’t they come from distilled flower petals or something like that?
I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the vast majority of mainstream fragrances are simply chemicals designed and manufactured in laboratories to smell good. They are no different from any other chemicals. And it’s even unlikely that you will find them listed on the label of the product because the companies that make the anti aging products that contain chemical fragrances are allowed to list them on the label with such generic terms as “fragrances”. That’s to help protect their secret formulas for their fragrances.
Lets have a look at some of the problems with fragrances in mainstream skin care and anti-aging products.
1. Many of these artificial chemicals known as fragrances are banned in Europe even though they are not in the US. The European Union’s Scientific Committee on Cosmetic Products and Non-food Products has found that somewhere around 2 percent of people can develop hypersensitivity to these chemicals which can lead to allergies and allergic reactions, and which may also damage the immune system.
2. Chemical fragrances are known to be amongst the top allergens leading to a range of different allergies in people who are subject to them including asthma.
3. As far back as 1986 in America the National Academy of Sciences identified some fragrances as being potential neurotoxins which could lead to brain damage in some people.
There’s more, but I’m sure you get the idea. Mainstream anti-aging products, as well is a host of other products such as cosmetics and personal and beauty products, contain chemical ingredients that may be damaging to your health. This includes chemical fragrances.
That brings us back to our best anti aging tip. Staying healthy is about the best thing you can do to stay looking good right into your old age. And ultimately, although looking good is important, being healthy and feeling great is more important, and that in turn leads to looking good anyway.
Bombarding your body with artificial chemicals, such as chemical fragrances, can be a risk to your health and can have the exact opposite effect to what you’re trying to achieve, namely to stay healthy and look good and keep the effects of age at bay as long as possible.
The good news is that there are companies that recognize the problems with chemical ingredients in modern skin care products and which make excellent and cost competitive anti aging products that do not contain chemical ingredients such as fragrance. However these are small niche companies that struggled to compete in the open market with that the mega players that make the products that you probably use now.
So remember our best anti aging tip. Stay healthy as long as you can and you’ll look good and feel good, and the big part of staying healthy is avoiding modern anti aging products containing chemical ingredients such as fragrance.
