Just as HD brows in Dubai lipstick is other vital makeup tool for women to highlight their lips. While many women now opt for semi permanent makeup in Dubai or permanent makeup in Dubai, they still require adding a little makeup to touch up the look.
Makeup is an important fashion statement in women, especially for the lips and eyebrows in Dubai. Lipstick is one product women tend to use throughout the day with constant touch up. It does make the lips and face in whole more appealing. But lipsticks can also contain harmful ingredients and can be toxic and poisonous.
Many lipstick brands contain a high amount of lead. As women keep applying and reapplying lipstick throughout the day, they end up consuming some of this lead through the skin of the lips. Lead may not be a ingredient used in the lipstick, but it is a by-product of the colorant used or by the process of making the lipstick. Though the amount of lead consumed through lipstick daily many be a small amount, over the years it can add up to a significant level of exposure to lead. Lead being a neurotoxin can greatly affect the nerves and lead to brain damage. This can present in forms of learning, behavioural and language issues. IQ levels can be lowered, it can bring on an imbalance in hormones and lead to delays in puberty, infertility and miscarriage. It has even been researched that it can cause aggression.
Another harmful product in lipstick is petrochemicals. Careful check the ingredients in the lipstick before you purchase it. Avoid lipsticks which contain talc, carcinogen (bismuth oxychloride), Parabens, formaldehyde and mineral oil as much as possible.
The best lipsticks are ones that are plant-based and natural. The most common ingredients in these products are beeswax, aloe vera extracts, Carnauba wax, candellila wax, carmine, hempseed oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, iron oxide, shea butter, mica, lanolin, tocopherol, titanium oxide, ultramarines, etc. Though natural all these products may not fit in with your lifestyle, diet or beliefs. Especially if you are vegan many of these ingredients will be against your belief, example carmine (an alternative for petroleum dye) is taken from an insect, beeswax is taken from bees and lanolin is extracted from sheep, these are few products which are considered to be non-vegan. Basically remember natural lipstick brands are not necessarily vegan products.
Even these natural ingredients can cause minor health conditions. As with any product practice caution and reduce the amount and period of lipstick use to avoid health issues.
