2 Fashion Habits That Can Be Dangerous To Your Health

As we go about our day-to-day activities, we get involved in tasks that make our lives easier. Considering the hustle and bustle that characterize the modern lifestyle, it is not strange that people seek the easier routes to make their job less stressful. One aspect people try to make effortless is their clothing. 

From ironing their clothes for a week to picking out simple dresses for work, there are many ways people use to make cloth styling quick. However, in the process of doing this, people sometimes cause damage to their health. In this article, we will look at two ways you might be endangering yourself through your health.

Dry cleaning

Dry cleaning is one common and fast method of getting your clothes ready after washing. It has made people's lives easy, especially professionals who hardly have time to care for their clothes. Nonetheless, dry cleaning can pose a huge risk to your health if done too many times. 

Perchloroethylene (PERC) is a potential human carcinogen and the most commonly used dry cleaning solvent. Frequent exposure to the chemical can damage the kidneys and liver, break down the central nervous system, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, throat irritation, and dermatitis.

Heavy jewelry

The rule used to be less is more, but not these days. Bold and heavy jewelry have appeared to be the norm. While no one has the right to chastise you for wearing them, you should know the dangers attached. Heavy earrings, for instance, can tear and stretch your earlobes, making them bigger than normal. Similarly, heavy necklaces can put a strain on your neck, back, and shoulders.
