As dangerous as mercury may be, my life just wouldn't be the same without mascara.
Lead in lipstick 2
Gel mani 3
I was all for gel manicures until I heard the UV lamp could cause skin cancer. According to Dr. Chris Adigun, from New York University School of Medicine, it can cause just as much damage as a tanning bed. Yikes!
Hair dye 5
Because I'm always hearing about something new that supposedly causes cancer, I'm still not 100 percent convinced that hair dye is one of them. My abuela has been dying her strands for over 50 years and she's still as healthy as can be!
While it may not give you cancer, regular shampoos are filled with sulfates and harsh detergents that can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and dull. These days I use sulfate-free products, like WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner ($32) only!
