We should not encourage chemical-based beauty productsGone are the days when Tamil women sported the traditional bindis the did no harm to their health. In the good old days, they would use natural products like turmeric after their bath in the river and the bindi would be so pure. Today, both are gone. Everywhere in India,one is told.
The sticker bindis are convenient to use but dangerous for the skin. I read an article that continuous use of these products are very harmful. The 'ethnic' product brigade is loud in its propositions. For example, there are largely herbal based shampoos, vis-a-vis the hugely chemical-based shampoos.
One needs to consult a dermatologist and decide. Of course, it is extremely doubtful if the younger generation will even listen to any advice. Their social life does not allow any room to go back to nature, but let us try to convince them.
