You might have heard about these statements from your beautician, your friend or your mum, but have you ever wondered whether they hold any truth or not? From not using sunscreen when it is not sunny to plucking grey hair, you have heard them all. But it is time to get over them and know the truth. Today, let me present to you few famous and most used beauty myths and the truth behind them.
Myths 1 – If I pluck a grey hair, 10 more will grow at its place.
Truth – Absolutely wrong as for every hair you pluck there can only one that can grow at its place. If you pull one small plant out from the root, can there grow ten trees?
Myth 2 – Shaving arms and legs will make my hair coarse.
Truth – The fact is that shaving does not make hair coarse or soft. The only difference between shaving and other hair removal techniques is that shaving makes the hair end blunt and it starts to feel coarse to us.
Myth 3 – Split ends can be fixed.
Truth – The truth is actually the opposite. You cannot glue back your hair if there are splits but yes trimming them can help you.
Myth 4 – I have acne, and should wash my face vigorously and often.
Truth – This will only worsen your problems. As there are no supportive statements related to the myth. So do not harm your face while washing it off too often, rather get a proper treatment done.
Myth 5 – There is no need to wear sunscreen if it is not sunny.
Fact – UV rays are all time present in the atmosphere, so being it a sunny day or not should not decide your usage of a sunscreen. Always use a sun block when you are stepping out of the house. As the rays can harm you excluding the fact that it is a cloudy day today.
Myths 6 – To grow your hair longer get them trimmed every two months.
Truth – No, that will not help you grow hair faster. Trimming your hair will help you get rid of split ends and can help your hair look better, nothing else!
Myth 7 – Those who have oily skin can skip Moisturizers.
Truth – If you will skip using moisturizer, your sebaceous glands will start producing more oils and your skin will become acne prone. So make sure you use a moisturizer daily at least once.
Hope you know better now about what is fact and what is a myth. So ensure you do not make any beauty blunder by following any of the myths stated above.
