The main problem with the beauty industry is that there are so many myths flying around at all times. They’re usually pushed forward by different media outlets, which ends up making so many young women feel bad about themselves in some way or another. And it needs to end, got it? K.
Bearing that in mind, it’s time to bust open some of these myths once and for all. Here are a few you’ve probably encountered, and now it’s time to stop believing them!
You shouldn’t wear makeup every day
A myth that’s as old as time! If you wear makeup every day, then you’ll ruin your skin and get spots, right? Wrong. If you layer on makeup nice and thick - and use products packed full of chemicals - then your skin will get worse. But, wearing a full face every day won’t directly harm your skin. If anything, it could improve it as some makeup has things in it like SPF protection and acne treating properties.
You should accept the face you’ve been given
In some ways, this is good advice as I think we should all try and love ourselves. However, what if you have certain features that really get you down and leave you feeling depressed every day? There is nothing wrong with fixing something you are unhappy with (but don’t think it will solve all your problems). As you can see if you visit www.CarolinaFacialPlasticSurgery.com, there are minor surgical procedures that can help change the way you look. Cosmetic surgery is heavily frowned upon in the beauty industry, but I don’t see why. If you think your life will improve by making a change to your nose or other parts of your face that make you feel self-conscious, then go for it. Don’t just accept things how they are if it’s really getting you down and there are things you can do about it. Either way, just do what makes YOU happy.
Your hair grows thicker after you shave
How many of you have been reluctant to shave your legs or armpits as you think it’ll grow back thicker? Or, perhaps you’ve got a bit of hair on the upper lip but are scared to get rid of it as you think you’ll get thick mustache in return? The reality is, hair just looks slightly different after it’s been shaved, which makes it appear thicker. But, it’s actually just the same old hair that was there before!
You should drink loads of water if you have dry skin
For years, we’ve been told that water can hydrate our skin from inside to out. Sadly, this is a big fat myth. Yes, it will hydrate you and make you feel better, but dry skin needs actual products but on it to improve. There’s a good article on https://uamshealth.com that explains things in more detail and proves that drinking water will not cure dry skin at all. BUT: If you’re like me and love water and feel like a fish without it, keep drinkin’ girl (or dude)!. Sometimes I feel like SpongeBob without it…
If you stop believing these beauty myths, then things might just fall into place or you will have experienced less stress about the beauty industry - which should be a fun and creative outlet, not stress inducing! In general, my one rule of beauty is this; do whatever makes you happy, and try to use natural products. Doing both of these things can help you feel better about yourself and cure many problems you may have.
