WHY SOFT FABRIC  IS NOT ENOUGH WHEN YOU HAVE CHRONIC  SKIN DISEASE...

... and why not every natural fabric is good for your skin.

 

It’s been a while since I wanted to write about it as there are some conviction that when you suffer from skin condition or you have sensitive skin it is enough to wear clothes made of soft fabrics.

...and how to  get the money for that.

 

Have you ever wondered what is the oldest item in your closet? Or the item you love the most? Do you remember time you bought it?

DIRTY SECRETS OF YOUR CLOTHES THAT MAY CAUSE YOUR SKIN PROBLEMS

DIRTY SECRETS OF YOUR CLOTHES THAT MAY CAUSE YOUR SKIN PROBLEMS

...and tips how to protect yourself.

 

I’m always amazed how people care about what they put in their bodies and don’t care at all what they put on their bodies. I agree it would be easier if every piece of the garment comes with the list of “ingredients” attached to it like it’s in case of food. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. At least not yet.
