There are many such products that we use everyday can actually cause harm to our body and health. After the occasion of Diwali, we still want to look gorgeous and healthy and we cook yummy food on your favourite non-stick utensils. Before your head to the kitchen or pick up your blow dryer, Shaadimagic have given a list of products and want harm they causes to us.
1. Hair dryer
We use hair dryers almost everyday to have beautiful locks, but your hair dryer is causing harm to your hair. The extreme heat and temperature damages your hair and make them dull, rough and dry.
2. Room freshener
We love the nice fragrances as soon as we enter our house as you want to make your house smell good every time. These room fresheners, however, does not reduces the smell completely. Most of the room fresheners have phthalates that are chemical substances used as plastic softeners, anti-foaming agents, paints. It can cause harm to the production of testosterone in males and reproductive health.
3. Nail tools
Manicure and pedicure is one such thing we all love doing to relax our body and to make hands and feet look good. If these nail tools are not properly cleanse after every use, the bacteria from the skin will get transferred to these tools and and grow. This causes skin infection. Make sure that you also do not share your nail; tools with others.
It removes all the dead skin cells and makes body supple and soft. However, if the loofah is left undried can lead to the bacteria growth and gets transferred to the skin. It can cause skin infection if the body part has open cuts or pores.
5. Microwave Oven
Using plastic utensils to heat the food can cause carcinogenic chemicals to seep inside the food. Bisphenol A (BPA) is found in the majority of plastic products which causes cancer. It is also safe to use ceramic containers or heat-resistant glasses.
6. Non-stick cookware
The Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) has been used in manufacturing Teflon cookware, which is said to be a harmful chemical. The PFOA releases when the utensil is heated and if used for a very long time, it may cause thyroid, heart diseases and even cancer. Make sure to you buy non-stick cookware with POFA-free label
7. Cotton ear buds
The regular use and scratching the ear with the help of cotton buds can leave your eardrum punctured leading to loss of hearing.
Now you know what harm these products can cause that we use everyday. Make this Post-Diwali a safe and healthy one by not using too much of these products in life.
