It’s bad enough that sometimes you have to worry about what’s in your food itself being bad for you in the long term – you don’t need to worry about the beauty products that you use having any toxic effect when you’re cooking either. So, before you put on all of your makeup or use all of your beauty products, it’s not a bad idea to take a look and make sure there is nothing in them that will mix to create bad tastes or toxic effects in the meals you’re preparing.
For a few examples of this worry-free beauty spectrum, consider using toxic-free nail polish, organic essential oils, nature-based lotions, and clean makeup. Each of those has the potential to make you look and feel wonderful without having adverse effects on handling food.
Toxic-Free Nail Polish
You use your hands a lot for preparing meals. In some cases, the type of nail polish that you use can chip off or rub off and get into your preparations for meat, vegetables, or other fruit. To avoid even the possibility of that, you can use toxic-free nail polish that will give you no worries about transferring any chemicals into your food. You can always wear gloves if you wear other kinds of nail polish that you don’t want to get on your items, but it’s just one more step you can take not to have anxiety about the situation.
Organic Essential Oils
Many people use organic essential oils as part of their beauty routine. To a certain degree, you can put these essential oils in your cooking recipes as well. You always want to use the correct dilution processes, and make sure that your oils are food-grade, but as long as you keep those things in mind, you shouldn’t have to worry about any contamination happening.
If you use a lot of lotion, have you ever wondered if it can rub off during food preparation stages? Consider that you might be using a sunscreen that has lots of chemicals in it. When you’re making sandwiches for your family, does any of that rub off and cause potentially ill effects when eaten and absorbed? If you think it might, then consider that sticking with organic nature-based lotions would be better if you’re going to be cooking.
For items like foundation, lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow, and many others, there is a category known as “clean makeup.” Having this label means that all of these products are toxin free and don’t cause any harm to the environment either. They are usually advertised as such, so it’s not hard to find them if you are looking for them individually. The next time you need to do any heavy cooking, you can aim to purchase these clean, non-toxic, worry-free products and know that there won’t be any contamination in your kitchen work.
