Beauty Tips That Don’t Work

Beauty Tips That Don’t Work
Friday, June 16, 2017

We have come across countless of beauty tips online that sound amazing to incorporate into your daily regimen but whether they work or not, it’s another story.

To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of beauty tips that you can simply ignore, you can thank us later.

1. Brushing Your Hair 100 Times A Day For Rejuvenation


Excessive brushing will strip your hair of natural oils, resulting in frizzy and fragile hair. If you need to brush your hair, opt for a wide tooth comb or use your fingers instead.

 

2. Egg Protein Treatment For Silky & Shiny Locks


As much as it contains only natural ingredients, but not all DIY products are effective. For instance, the egg protein treatment. The protein in eggs has amino acids that are too large to fit into the hair shaft and bond properly. Thus, it doesn’t work to give you silky and shiny locks. Instead, try to cut down on dying, styling and heating.

 

3. Treating Pimple With Toothpaste


It can be risky to use toothpaste to treat your pimple as some contain ingredients that irritate the skin. Especially if you have sensitive skin, toothpaste may burn it. Turn to the proper treatment products from the drugstore or the dermatologist instead.

 

4. Find Your Foundation Match By Swatching On The Back of Your Hand


If you realised, the back of your hand and your neck are of different shade from your face due to sun exposure. So that is not the ideal spot. To get the right match, find somewhere that has a much more even tone and usually the best place to try the foundation on is your chest!

 

5. The Colour of Your Eyebrows Should Match The Colour of Your Hair

 

If you have darker hair, your eyebrows should be one to two shade lighter, if you have lighter hair, your eyebrows should be on or two shade darker! The contrast can actually help to make your eyes pop.

Moral of story, do not believe everything that you read online!
