Top 5 Popular Beauty Myths And Realities


Myths are the set of beliefs that we think, are true and they are widespread in almost every field. Even the beauty field isn’t untouched of these myths. Hence, there are lots of beauty myths among people. But, we should remember that they are myths and probably, the reality is way much different from what these myths are saying. Thus, we are here today to bust the top 5 popular beauty myths. So, let’s get started with these beauty myths and their realities.

Myth #1: Shaving makes hair grow thicker and harder

A very popular beauty myth that is believed by almost everyone but, it isn’t true. It’s just that our hair is fine towards the end and thickest at the base. Accordingly, when you shave your hair what remains after is the thickest part. Consequently, when it starts growing what we feel is that it is growing thicker and you see, that isn’t the actual reality. So, shaving doesn’t affect your hair growth in terms of their quality.

Myth #2: All-natural Ingredients are Safe for the skin.

That’s also a myth that many of us tend to believe. No, I am not saying natural products aren’t good even, they are the best for your skin. But, what I am saying is that it isn’t necessary that all the natural ingredients will suit your skin. Especially if you have sensitive skin. It is because your skin can react because of the allergic element that the natural product, you are going to use on your skin, may contain.

So, always and always do a skin check by testing it on your hands that the product suits your skin.

Myth #3: Apply Toothpaste on Your Pimple and Your Pimple will go away.

Well, toothpaste was produced for our teeth. Isn’t it? Then, why on the skin?

Do you know that toothpaste contains sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate, and many other chemicals that are enough to harm your skin?

So, never ever apply this on your skin.

Myth #4: Plucking a grey hair will bring 4 more new grey hair.

Ah! Now, this one is a myth that you must have heard of. Well, I got to know about this myth when I was in my school and there was an old lady in our neighborhood who was resisting another lady from plucking grey hair by saying the same myth. However, plucking the grey hair may not make any effect as another grey hair might grow up at that place. Yet, the myth is just the old ladies’ tale and nothing more than this.

Myth #5: Split Ends are repairable

A myth that we are believing from so many years just because of that market of hair care products claiming to do the same. It might be possible that you can nourish your split ends and improve their appearance. But just think, can you actually reconstruct or repair them? The answer is a clear no.

So, these are the top 5 popular beauty myths that most of us think are true. However, now we know what reality is. Then, why go to that lie lane?
