5 BEAUTY MYTHS BUSTED (PART-1)

  • PEOPLE WITH OILY SKIN SHOULD NOT USE OILY PRODUCTS

There has been a question by those who have an oily skin that using serums & moisturizers make the skin oily? No definitely not. It is important to find the right kind of product you need. Applying serums, moisturizers & facial oils on oily skin doesn’t make the skin oilier infact it stops the skin from producing its own oils to keep it hydrated which can be a reason of breakouts.

  • AGE SPOTS MEANS YOU ARE GETTING OLDER

Age spots are not just a reason of aging. Age spots can be caused due to several other reasons such as hormonal fluctuations, genetics & too much sun exposure. In order to prevent your skin, it is important to wear sunscreen all the time.

  • DRY SKIN? DRINK MORE WATER!

Yes, water is good for your skin. It helps to keep your skin hydrated but it won’t treat your dry skin. Many studies have compared the water content of dry skin to that of normal or oily skin, which shows that there isn’t a significant difference. The causes of dry skin are far more complicated than water consumption. So you need to apply serums, lotions & suitable oils to keep your skin from drying.

  • TINGLING SENSATION MEANS THE PRODUCT IS WORKING

    This is one of my favorite myths because there was a time when I believed that when bleach tingles that means its colouring my facial hair golden & cutting down all the dirt. But as I got more into cosmetology I understood that tingling means irritating your skin instead of helping it. So the tingling sensation on your skin means your skin is being irritated by the product.

  • TESTING FOUNDATION ON YOUR WRIST

Back in the days when makeup artistry was not so common it was said you can test a foundation by applying it on your wrist. Wait… No! No one ever told that your wrist tends to be lighter or darker than your face tone, therefore while choosing a foundation, test it on your jawline for the right shade.
