Are you one of those who think that mascara will break your lashes, that toothpaste removes pimples, or that water keeps you free from wrinkles, then read on.
Myths can be difficult – almost impossible – to get rid of, and especially in the beauty universe myths thrive a little too well. Let me expose the most enduring beauty myths.
1 Anti-aging creams work better at night
Almost incorrect. There are some anti-wrinkle creams, that prefers the night shift, for example those containing retinol, peptides and fruit acids. When we sleep, the blood flow increases in the skin and the protective barrier is lowered, which according to researchers and dermatologists provides the best conditions for this type of ingredients.
2 Oil removes stretch marks
Unfortunately it is not true that good oil removes stretch marks. The reason for that there is not so much to do when the marks first have become visible on the skin is that they are formed under the outer layer of skin, where the oils do not have a chance to penetrate. Revitol stretch mark cream is still the best way to get rid of stretch marks.
3 Toothpaste can remove pimples
Wrong. 80s über-icon, supermodel Cindy Crawford, allegedly started the rumor that she used toothpaste to remove pimples. Maybe toothpaste dries out a pimple a bit, but removed it wont. There is instead a diverse range of targeted products against acne.
4 Mascara breaks your eyelashes
Modern mascaras contain lots of nourishing ingredients, including proteins that protect lashes. However, it is important to remove mascara before bed because the risk of broken lashes if you don’t is real enough.
5 Hair becomes thicker and darker if you shave legs
Wrong. If you use the scraper method, the hairs are cut away on the legs, but don’t get either darker or thicker. However they change a bit if you instead choose to remove hair with wax.
6 Your hair becomes thicker if it’s cut frequently
Unfortunately, not so. We must all live with the hair, we already have. However, a frequently hair cut hair removes flossy hair, and the hair seem more healthy and alive.
7 Sunscreen only belongs to summer
All skin experts agree that it is a great idea to use sunscreen every day, year round. For although it takes many more hours to get a sun burn in winter, the UVA rays are still affecting your skin and make it wrinkled and old before time.
