Top 5 Beauty Myths Answered

Several beauty trends have debuted in the year 2016. In fact, almost everyone was interested in watching makeup tutorials in YouTube and other social media platforms to see other individuals showcase their talent and skill in these trends. Because of them, too much information is being provided to people (coming from all parts of the world), that it is slowly becoming harder to tell which beauty trend will truly work on you.

Fortunately, this article has compiled a number of beauty myths which have been previously debunked. Find them all out by reading them below.

Can you get rid of cellulite?

Cellulites are consists of fat deposits that were trapped in the fibrous bands which connect your skin’s tissues. According to Timothy Flynn, clinical professor of dermatology, University of North Carolina, nothing can be done to truly get rid of them. He says that cosmetic dermatology considers getting rid of cellulite as one of its holy grails because not even liposuction can get rid of it.

Flynn says that the best way you can deal with them is by hiding their appearance through self-tanners, moisturizers, and firming creams.

Can you shrink your pores?

Elizabeth McBurney, clinical professor of dermatology, Tulane University School of Medicine, says shrinking your pores is an impossible feat. However, she adds that people can still work on making it look smaller with the help of egg whites. She says that they work on tightening your skin which gives an illusion of having smaller pores. She admits though that their effect on your skin is only temporary.

Will you have 10 more grey hairs after plucking just one of them?

Multiple hair follicles cannot simply grow from just plucking one; therefore this myth about plucking one grey hair which then results to ten more is false. Although, plucking a grey hair may not be your best option either, if you want to get rid of it for you may end up with a regrowth that will not lie flat. The best thing option for you is to go and see a colourist.

Can you avoid dry skin by drinking water?

The myth about drinking enough water and not having to deal with dry skin is also false. You can literally drink eight glasses of water per day and still have dry skin; this is because skin moisture does not come from water but from oil instead.

Drinking enough water would, of course, help your vital organs to operate properly but it has no bearing whatsoever in getting rid of your dry skin.

Does brushing your hair 100x make it shine?

Brushing your hair 100x per day will do more damage to your locks, according to Christopher Mackin, who works as a trichologist in New York City. He says that a few strokes here and there will be much better. He suggests hair brushing should be kept at a minimum and not be overly done for you may end up with weak follicles as well as breakage.
