How lotions and skincare make you obese.

Obesogens are additives in lotions and many types of skincare that predispose us to obesity. As these common chemicals are absorbed through the skin, they disrupt hormones and alter metabolic pathways that increase fat storage. These obesogens are used in makeup, nail polish, lotions, creams, fragrances, hair spray, moisturizers, sun blocks, deodorants body wash, aftershaves and even toothpaste. The average absorption daily is 168 chemicals from Phthalates and Parabens. Many more commercial chemicals are used but not listed in ingredients. Only the largest amount of toxic chemicals are listed by manufacturing companies, according to FDA requirements. 

Teens using makeup and skincare have 20x more of these toxic chemicals in their body. Children, nursing and lactating mothers are especially prone to increased absorption of toxic skincare additives.

Phthalates reduce circulating thyroid hormone, thyroxin, disrupting energy metabolism and free testosterone. You can not only become obese, but also chronically fatigued. Your thyroid may test correctly, but you can experience sluggish fatigue, hair loss, thinning nails and skin problems and chronic inflammation.

Parabens deposit in weak estrogen receptors. You will experience extra padding of fat storage in al the wrong places.
