Beauty Myths

I'm going to take a different approach I'm going to post more informative information as well as the regular makeup look and reviews here and there. Today I decided to post some Beauty Myths.

- Someone told me that if I use a ponytail, my hair can break and fall out.
Pulling your hair back really tightly every day can put stress on it, and it can break off. As long as you don't do this on a daily basis or use uncoated elastics or elastics with metal clasps you shouldn't experience breakage.

-French Fries, Chocolate, pizza, chips, and other foods make you skin break out.
Although these food aren't necessarily the best it hasn't been scientifically proven to cause breakouts. If these foods break you out then you probably should stay away or you may have allergies.

-Bad hygiene cause pimples.
Usually people with pimples tend to wash their face to frequently and to roughly. This can strip oil from he skin and cause your body to secrete even more oil to compensate leading to dry pimply skin!

-Lots of lather means that my shampoo is working better.
This doesn't necessarily mean its working better. It just means it may have extra foaming agents to make it lather but it isn't making your hair cleaner. It may not even be as gentle as a low lather shampoo.

-It's bad to mix different brands of skincare and cosmetics.
This is a marketing ploy that may have been started by a cosmetics exec to encourage loyalty to one brand. Sometimes it better to mix things up.

The next posting will probably be one of a similar nature with more beauty myths :)
