Breathing moderate-to-high levels of acetone for short periods of time can cause nose, throat, lung, and eye irritation. It can also cause intoxication, headaches, fatigue, stupor, light-headedness, dizziness, confusion, increased pulse rate, nausea, vomiting, and shortening of the menstrual cycle in women.

 

If you’re using anything from the list above you’re exposing yourself to acetone, which I can easily help you find a safe swap for to begin reducing your body’s burden!
