Cleaning agents differ in their classification of health hazards; some cause serious or immediate dangers such as skin irritations, respiratory and eye irritation to illness such as reproductive and respiratory disorders as well as major diseases such as cancer. A health hazard commonly associated with using window glass cleaners would be inhalation of the mist emitted from the bottle or getting the chemical into your eyes. Ingestion of the chemicals could pose a serious health risk.
What’s in your window cleaner?
Some of the chemicals typically found in window cleaners include ammonia and isopropanol. Ammonia is known to be a powerful chemical agent that is diluted for household cleaning products and is highly poisonous. Exposure to high concentrations of ammonia can cause burning of the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory tract and can result in blindness, lung damage or death. Inhalation of lower concentrations can cause coughing, and nose and throat irritation. Swallowing ammonia can cause burns to the mouth, throat and stomach. Skin or eye contact with concentrated ammonia can also cause irritation and burns. *

Beauty – what is it? We all have different definitions of beauty. The word beauty itself has no literal meaning. To a great extent people define beauty in terms of appearance, most of the time facial beauty is related to skin. Skin beauty depends on how radiant and healthy the skin looks and everyone has different beauty regimes in order to maintain optimum skin condition. Here are some tips about skin care that will enhance your natural beauty.
Many people wonder how caring for skin affects beauty? When your skin glows naturally, there is less need for cosmetics to hide facial flaws. Naturally healthy skin is free of pimples, acne, red patches, blemishes and minimal wrinkles. Over time, wrinkles are natural however by following a skin care regime one can minimize premature wrinkles.
People spend millions of dollars on skin care products, treatments, and cosmetics every year. Cosmetic companies tend to use synthetic chemicals to repair damaged and malnourished skin cells. A healthy diet is also an important instrument in skin healthiness. Mending skin appearance with cosmetics, creams and diet takes more than a day. Moreover you need lifestyle changes in order to see the effects of these anti- aging and skin improving remedies. At the end of the day, dazzling skin depends upon lifestyle; it can never be achieved by using expensive products alone. If you want vibrant, nourished skin, invest in good health, 8 hours of sleep daily (this is vital for skin repair by the body), sunscreen and a good quality moisturizer. The more you invest in your overall health, the less you will have to worry about your natural beauty.
