Fashion is fun. We all love to look and feel stylish. Yet, according to Dr. Oz from the popular television show there are some fashion trends that pose health dangers. Here is a look at a few of them.
Jewelry containing nickel
Nickel is a metal type substance that is found in many types of costume jewelry. This includes necklaces, watches, earrings, bracelets, etc. If you happen to be allergic to nickel it can cause an allergic rash. This rash can appear as small little red bumps. These bumps are very itchy and can become scaly looking. Over time, these bumps can also become filled with liquid. The catch is that the rash will not always appear automatically after you put the jewelry on your skin. It may take a couple of days to show up, even if you have stopped wearing the item.
What can you do to avoid it?
Stop wearing jewelry that contains nickel. Look for costume jewelry that states that it is nickel free or cover it with a nickel guard liquid that can be purchase at some jewelry counters or online.
You should also tell your doctor you have this allergy, your dentist and your surgeon because some times surgery clips contain nickel.
Tight jeans can cause your intestines to become restricted which can lead to constipation and digestive issues.
How do you know if your jeans are too tight for you to wear? Try this trick. Place a tube of lipstick between the waistband of your jeans and your waist. If your lipstick won’t fit, your jeans are too tight.
What should you do? You can purchase a waistband extender for about four dollars or simply use a rubber band to extend your waistband. Place one end of the rubber band around the button of your jeans and then wound it around the button again, finally wound the other end through the button hole and then once again wrap around your button.
Tight headbands, tight sunglasses, tight hats
Anything that you wear on your head that is tight can cause you to develop a migraine, a head by compressing the nerves in your head.
How can you avoid this?
You can avoid this by wearing lighter and looser bands and glasses.
Fashion should be fun. Fashion shouldn’t cause us pain.
