We live in a world of consumption, we are surrounded by the ads 24/7 and even don’t notice that at all. Today the corporations invent new ways of making more money, and the most sophisticated one is spreading myths.
We could barely think of something more discussed as preserving beauty and youth. This issue creates tons of false convictions, which are perfectly sold by marketing experts. Let us eliminate the most mistaking statements about beauty.
Drinking half a gallon of water makes skin more fresh and shining
Wrong. Drinking that amount of water won’t make anyone more attractive and visibly young. Instead, its magical anti-aging features are extremely exaggerated. The bottled water producers inspire us to drink more in order to avoid dehydration, become more healthy and beautiful. The truth is, you consume as much water during the day as you really need. You won’t die and your skin won’t become dry if you drink less than 2 liters daily. Just drink when you are thirsty, it won’t affect your skin.
On the other hand, daily consumption of this amount of liquid (approximately) lowers the appetite and prevents renal insufficiency. That is where the truth is hidden.
Hair cosmetics helps getting rid of split ends
Unfortunately, it is false. There is no other way to prevent your hair from split ends but cutting it. No lotions, balms, masks, and certainly no shampoos can deal with this problem. In fact, they do can make your hair look shining, soft, and healthy in general, but other statements are just invented for profit. Those men who decided to marry a Russian girl now know, how much time they spend in the beauty salons making a haircut, because it is the only way to keep the beauty of their hair.
To prevent your hair from damage follow few simple rules:
- Reduce of heat styling,
- Brush it only when it’s dry,
- Trim the ends off ¼ inch every month,
- Wash hair no more than three times per week.
Every woman has to use moisturizing cream
This myth brings hundreds of millions of dollars to the producers each year. Most women use moisturizing cosmetics while, in fact, they actually don’t need it. These creams are actually help if you have such symptoms as redness of the skin, roughness or itching. They also are useful in winter to protect your skin from cold wind.
Those women, who have oily skin should use another type of cosmetics and methods of caring. It requires more often cleaning with warm water and peeling no more than 2 times per week.
Making a face lifting surgery once you will have to do it permanently
Plastic surgery definitely makes us look much younger than before. Nevertheless, it doesn’t stop the time once and for all. Skin is ageing, and the only thing we can do is to slow down this natural process. Therefore, the regular appeal to the plastic surgeons depends on the desire to look young as long as possible, and not on the negative influence of the operation.
Hypoallergenic products and natural cosmetics are perfect for sensitive skin
To make points clear let’s talk about the trend of natural, organic, and hypoallergenic stuff. Such modern cosmetics is produced with using certain substances that less likely cause allergic reactions. It is impossible to insure the risk of getting irritation completely. Do not follow the title ‘hypoallergenic’ on a pack. Read the ingredients information, use the products with the minimal numbers of harmful sensitizing components, and always test your cosmetics in advance.
