Humans have a sense that helps them predict when they will be in danger. However, not all situations can be predicted, especially with things we do every day that we believe are harmless, like being on our phone all the time, for example.

1.Holding sneezes

You should never hold a sneeze. If you hold it, there’s a chance you could rupture your eardrum with the air that sneezing sends to your ears. Controlling your sneezes may also cause your blood vessels in your eyes, nose, and eardrums to squeeze and burst.

2. Using perfumes full of chemicals

A lot of perfumes are full of toxic ingredients that companies keep secret. These ingredients come from petroleum and can cause respiratory and hormone problems, nausea, and vomiting. In the worst-case scenario, people can even suffer from perfume poisoning or cancer.

3. Popping pimples

First of all, popping pimples can make them worse and even cause scars so it’s not really helpful. There’s an area of the face known as the “triangle of death” which has a direct link to the brain and if you cause an infection thereby trying to squeeze out pimples, it could easily reach the nervous system and cause complications with vision, paralysis, meningitis and in the worst cases, death. If you ever feel like popping a pimple, just play with a wrist band instead and the desire will disappear.

4. Using cosmetics with synthetic components

It’s important to know if the makeup you’re using contains synthetic components that can be very harmful to you. These components can be accumulated in your body over time and cause skin irritation and even cancer.
