While most ladies (& even a few of the more adventurous men out there) are well aware of the benefits that nail polish can provide, there are a number of things that you may not know about nail polish and the effects that it can have on the human body when applied directly to the skin.
Even the brands that are well known for their ability to provide safe application may cause problems if the polish is applied to the skin. Some brands may claim to offer a nail polish that is 100 percent safe, but even these companies still create nail polish that contains traces of harmful chemicals.
So what are the effects of these chemicals when we are exposed to them? Well, for starters, these chemicals will typically cause a hormonal imbalance inside of our bodies. The majority of waste compounds are flushed out by our systems naturally, but these chemicals are not.
Not only can these chemicals alter our hormones, but they can also have a profound effect on the body’s reproductive system as well. The chemicals will also mix with the blood, making it even difficult for them to be removed from the body before any damage is done.
These chemicals can act as neurotoxins and affect the brain’s ability to function and they can even promote unsightly skin rashes. To avoid all of the aforementioned issues and keep yourself safe, use organic nail polishes only or search for vegan paints when it is time to beautify yourself.
