Hypothyroid people are often sensitive and react to many harsh chemicals and perfumes in their daily personal care products. I have collected a list of really high-quality non-fragranced personal care products on iHerb, which I use myself. I hope you will enjoy the benefits of these products in your daily routine.
Why is fluoride bad for the thyroid?
My personal care collection contains a fluoride-free toothpaste. If you want to keep your thyroid healthy it is important to avoid thyroid suppressive foods and substances.
Fluoride is a powerful thyroid suppressor. It is important to avoid drinking fluoridated water and swallowing fluoride-containing toothpaste, thus simply using a fluoride-free toothpaste is a good choice if you want to keep your thyroid healthy.
In my online hypothyroid treatment program, you can learn more about what foods and substances suppress your thyroid function.
Is sulfur helpful for skin problems?
Sulfur is an antibacterial and antifungal compound that is used in ointments and soaps to fight bacterial and fungal infections on the skin. My personal care collection includes sulfur products for the skin.
Are ceramides good for sensitive skin?
People with hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances often have skin problems, such as dry skin, eczema, and inflammatory skin diseases such as rosacea and perioral dermatitis.
My personal care product collection includes products from the brand Cerave, which is an American skincare brand that uses ceramides in all their formulations.
Ceramides are an essential part of a healthy skin barrier. Skincare products that have ceramides help maintain and restore the skin barrier to help lock in moisture and keep irritants out. I have found that the daily use of Cerave’s washes, creams, and lotions significantly improved my sensitive skin, and helped clear up my rosacea and perioral dermatitis issues.
