Three Beauty Myths That Really Just Aren't Quite Right January 05 2014, 0 Comments
There is a lot of information floating around especially on the internet. Everybody and their auntie has an opinion and they all get to express them here. The myths get mixed up with the truth and at the end of the day you are left wondering which side is up. Some of the information is a mixture of half truths and some are just outright lies. So, let’s take a look at the top 3 beauty marketing myths that have been around for so long they are often mistaken as facts.
1. Drinking More Water for Dry Skin
We have all heard at some point in time that if the problem is dry skin, then the solution is to drink more water. If only it were that simple. Dry skin is about a lack of moisture in the TOP LAYER of your skin. Drinking water restores moisture to the lower layers. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of good things drinking more water daily will assist you with, but dry skin is not one of them. That’s why there are so many moisturizers on the market. The easiest way to repair dry skin is to invest in a good all natural moisturizer. You can judge the results for yourself.
2. Repairing Damaged Hair
Repairing damaged hair is a big one. So much money and time has been spent on products that say they will repair your damaged hair, unfortunately this one is soooo not true. Guess what? Your hair isn’t alive; it's dead. It has no feeling or sensation and that's why it doesn’t hurt when you cut it. Once it’s damaged, that’s it. It can’t be rejuvenated, repaired or changed in any way. Your damaged hair can be sealed and made to feel different or look different, but there is no "repair" happening. The structure of your underlying, damaged hair remains unchanged.
3. The Cellulite Quick Fix
Cellulite is something that no one wants --male or female -- and in desperation we rub every cream, lotion or potion manufactured or advertised to try and get rid of it, but to no avail. Countless empty bottles and the cellulite still stands, resolute. This is because they don't work. There is no one product or quick fix for the problem of cellulite. Retinoid, laser treatments and exercise are the only ways, and even they are not guaranteed to completely get rid of it.
