New Year, generic cialis site New You! It seems every time I turn on the T.V. or open a magazine, cialis canada someone is talking about transforming themselves through the use of countless beauty products or the latest diet regiment. The first few weeks of the new year are traditionally devoted to shedding those excess pounds picked up like bad gifts around the holidays as well as investing in a barrage of new products guaranteed to make you look younger, have shinier hair, or whiter teeth. Our motivations for using these products range from wanting to be “socially acceptable” to a “super model”.
This year at Camp 4, we started looking at our barrage of personal care products and were horrified to see the impact. By count, that is 23 bottles devoted to hair care, 15 products devoted to skin care, 7 products devoted to teeth, and 34 products devoted to other things (make-up, contact lens, etc).
And then we started reading labels of what are in these products. Like with processed foods, there were a lot of ingredients with scary, un-recognizable, 45-letter names. These additives not only have potential environmental impacts, but potential health impacts as well. After all, they are used in your mouth or on your skin and are easily absorbed by the body. And then there was all the packaging made mostly from petroleum! We suddenly did not feel so beautiful.
