Drink plenty of water, wash my hair every day, don't crush acne … Debunking the most popular beauty myths!
If you want beautiful skin, drink more water
In fact, if you drink a lot of pure water, it won't get any worse. However, recent studies show that the skin practically does not react to the fluid you consume. The water makes too long a way and does not reach the cells of the epidermis.
Sleeping without washing off your makeup is a crime
Come on, come on. If every day, yes, use theatrical make-up, and not modern means … well, yes. But if after a fun party you fell asleep, leaving a high-quality foundation on your skin and good mascara on your eyelashes, absolutely nothing bad will happen to your skin and eyes. Just try not to repeat this trick often.
To make your hair beautiful, you need to comb it more often
Only if you have them completely straight. Wavy or curly hair can only be damaged! And you electrify, by the way. Comb in the morning with a wide-toothed comb or soft brush - and leave them alone.
Make-up is best applied with brushes
This myth successfully supports the fact that professional makeup artists work with brushes. But we forget that their task is to make the model's face beautiful for a photo shoot or a catwalk. In real life, you can apply makeup with your fingers, sponges, beauty blenders and the same brushes - whatever you like!
Styling will only last on clean hair
Do not consider us dirty, but braids, plaits, various weaves, bunches and textured haircuts fit perfectly just on the second day after washing. This, of course, is not about the situation when the hair and scalp are oily, and the head is really dirty.
Hair should be washed with shampoo
The mistake here is in the word "must". It is better to replace it with the word "you can." Because even without shampoo, the hair is perfectly cleansed, say, if you just rinse it with warm water and use conditioner or rinse it with apple cider vinegar.
To keep your hair healthy, it must be trimmed every three months
None of the hair stylists we interviewed confirmed this information. You need to cut your hair for three reasons: the ends are split, the hair is too long, or the cut is out of shape. There is no “wellness” haircut.
For oily skin, do not use oils
How many times have the world been told that vegetable oils cleanse, soften and reduce inflammation, but the myth is tenacious. Use it to your health if you like!
Can't squeeze pimples
With dirty hands, and then immediately cover it up with a "foundation", and the truth is not worth it. But if you washed your face, carefully got rid of the reptile and applied a disinfectant on top, the problem will disappear much faster than if you follow the natural course of events.
Need to find your wrinkle cream
It is good and right to pamper yourself, but a cream with retinol will really help you from the first wrinkles. Any retinol cream.
Concealer should be one tone lighter than skin
Not unless you're doing contouring or strobing. The concealer should be as close as possible in tone to your skin, only then it will be invisible.
Only stupid girls go to the gym with makeup
It's about the opinions of others that stupid girls are worried about. If you are comfortable doing with painted eyelashes and lip gloss - so on your health. The only advice is that it is better to wash off the foundation.
