We are spoilt for choice when it comes to anti-aging skincare. Walk into any pharmacist, and you’ll see shelves lined with promises. Fewer wrinkles, youthful, glowing skin are just some of the claims that these products make. But, when you dig a little deeper, the reality of these cosmetics isn’t so pretty.
Aren’t the advertisers and marketing teams of these skincare products smart? They’ve made us think that we’re not beautiful and wonderful just as we are. I do get it though. Slowing down the signs of aging and feeling better about what you see in the mirror is something we all want. But you must remember that what goes ON your skin, goes IN your skin.
I’m going further than skin-deep in this segment to uncover some of the hidden toxic ingredients lurking in anti-aging skincare. I discuss mercury and Teflon, the two bad boys lurking within your cosmetics. I unravel just how they affect the body, and the proactive steps you can take to make better purchasing choices.
