What are you wearing … Cotton or Plastic ?

So lately I’ve been extremely conscious of what I’m putting on my skin….I’m not talking about my face but my whole body . How many times have you checked the tag on the item your about to purchase ? I always do. Have you noticed polyester is the most common material ?

What is polyester ???

Polyester is a synthetic fabric that’s usually derived from petroleum. Holds odors and bacteria . Also very resistant as it’s processed through many chemicals. With that being said we aren’t meant to wear anything but cotton blends . Everything else such as polyester, can cause rashes, itching, redness, eczema, dermatitis, blistering or make existing skin problems worse for those with sensitive skin, up to 3 days later. Heat releases Polyester chemicals like Antimony oxide Sb2O3, which is used to make Polyester and is a known carcinogen as well as many other skin concerns.

Next time your about to purchase an item of clothing , especially from a fast fashion merchant check the tag and see what your actually paying for cotton or synthetic chemicals ? The price might be to your liking but the material might not .
