6 Beauty Myths Busted!

by Heather

There are a lot of beauty myths doing the rounds. Since the dawn of time, women have been told a large number of lies around beauty standards! It’s time to reclaim your beauty regimen once and for all. After all, once you know the common myths to avoid, you can start implementing a proper skin and beauty care regimen. You don’t have to waste precious time pursuing impossible things!

Let’s debunk some pesky beauty myths.

Myth 1: You Can Only Remove Skin Tags via Surgery

This is false. You can eliminate skin tags without the need for surgery. Skin tags can be problematic for people. They can impact on our self-esteem. But, they can also be painful if they are in certain areas. You don’t have to opt for painful surgery to get rid of these blemishes. Take a look at this skin tag remover by Revitol. The cream offers a non-surgical solution to problematic skin tags.

Myth 2: Chocolate Causes Spots

Nope. This is false. It’s probably one of the most perpetuated beauty myths in existence. But, it’s false. Chocolate cannot give you spots. Sugary foods can lead to more blemishes and imperfections in the skin. But, good quality chocolate can be beneficial for your health. The higher the cocoa count, the better. So, get munching on the good stuff!

Myth 3: Brush Your Hair 100 Times for Healthier Hair

Brushing your hair 100 times will, of course, make your hair super shiny. It will also allow you to get rid of dead hair. But, you don’t have to brush your hair 100 times daily to make it super glossy and super shiny. In fact, a good quality boar bristle brush will have the same impact. Using a high-quality hair brush is important. Synthetic materials can leave your hair looking lacklustre. So, invest in a good brush with the right bristle and unleash your hair’s potential.

Myth 4: Dry Skin Equals Wrinkles

Dry skin is exactly that. It cannot and will not cause wrinkles. Of course, dry skin can make your skin look dull and lacklustre. But, it will not cause fine lines. Combat dry skin with a good scrub and a dose of cold cream. You will look beautiful and radiant in no time.

Myth 5: You Can Shrink Your Pores

Despite what the beauty adverts tell you, you cannot permanently shrink pores. You can temporarily minimize the look of large pores using an egg white mask or a facial pack. This temporary measure plumps out the skin. The look of large pores is reduced. But, once you go back to your regular regimen, your pores will open back up.

Myth 6: Collagen Cream Will Get Rid of Wrinkles, Permanently!

Collagen creams, sadly, cannot get rid of wrinkles forever. Again, this is a temporary measure. You can reduce the overall look of wrinkles by using a collagen-based cream, but you won’t banish the fine lines for good. The best way to banish wrinkles is to have a healthy lifestyle. Ditch nicotine and caffeine if you really want line-free skin.

Now that you have had a ready, which myth are you most shocked to see?

It's interesting that people are so concerned about changing things about their skin that are genetic (like pore size), when the focus should be on sun protection, drinking lots of water and gentle cleansing.

I always thought brushing your hair 100 times would give you shiny hair, guess I was wrong. Hydration, just like skin is what hair needs! Thanks for the ideas.

I learned alot from this article. I did not realize you could buy a cream to get rid of skin tags. As I get older I find myself getting more of these. I am going to check this out. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this, sadly a lot of people buy into beauty creams that claim they do things they won't and cannot do. Very informative!

Myth #3 is my favorite lol As a teen I always had a brush in my hand actually I think it made my hair worst, by creating split ends. I now know it is a myth and Use a wide tooth comb in my hair as it is a lot more gentle on my hair. Thanks for the other tips also I didn't know they were myths.

I'm shocked that people believe chocolate causes spots. Glad I've never heard of it before and have thoroughly enjoyed my chocolate addiction.

I recently started using collagen creams to try to plump up my skin. Didn't know that the effect would be short term.

Most of the myths on your list are ones I had heard before. I didn't know about the removal of skin tags though. If I brushed my hair 100 tines a day, I wouldn't have any hair left. Every time I brush ir comb my hair ig comes out in handfuls. Ive had to have 3 surgeries this past year and I don't know whether this is a myth of not, but I've heard anesthesia is really bad for your hair.
