Beauty Myths, Debunked

Beauty Myths, Debunked

Are you guilty of believing some of these beauty myths? 
  • Wearing make up every day is bad for your skin
False - Some beauty experts actually recommend wearing make up! When the correct foundation for your skin is worn, it can moisturise whilst acting as a barrier against the nasty things in the air!

  • Shampoo stops working when you don’t change it up
True - Your hair builds up a resistance to your shampoo. Try changing to a different shampoo once in a while and see your hair improve!

  • You can shrink the size of your pores
False - Pore size is genetic so don’t fall for the products claiming they can ‘Shrink your pores’. Exfoliating 3 times a week can minimise the appearance of pores.

  • Toothpaste will get rid of pimples
False - We’re sure you all have heard of this one, but you could be making things worse. Mint toothpaste can cause drying and/or inflammation of the pimple.

  • You’ll eventually outgrow acne
False - We wish! Sadly the older we are does not make us less likely to suffer with acne, in fact, having clear skin as a teenager isn’t a guarantee that you won’t get acne later in life. Say it ain’t so!

  • Cutting hair makes it grow faster
False - It’s an illusion! Your hair doesn’t know about your latest trim, but you do notice it’s grown because the added length over time is in greater proportion to the total length.

  • The neck ages at the same pace as your face

False - The neck skin is tissue thick, similar to the skin around your eyes. Your neck ages 20x faster than the face. Look after it!

  • Lip balm addiction

False- Some of you may think you're addicted to lip balm and are pretty strict on reapplication, for some of you it could just be a habit but for most your obsession is the thing stopping your lips from getting better! Lip sensitivity increases as you continue to use the lip balm, causing them to become more chapped.

  • Cold water closes pores
False - We wish it was this easy but unfortunately you’re just giving yourself a nasty shock with the sudden burst of cold water.
