Fact or Fiction? - Beauty myths, debunked! #3

Hello everyone!

As you can see from the title, this post is all about beauty myths.  I haven't posted a Fact or Fiction? post in such a long time, but this is actually my third "beauty myths" post.  Let's get started!



1. Dry skin will give you wrinkles.

Fact or Fiction? Fiction.

Wrinkles are caused by a lot of things but dry skin is not one of them.


2. Toothpaste can heal pimples.

Fact or Fiction? Fact.

Ingredients found in toothpaste have been shown to dry pimples.  However, use cautiously because the harsh chemicals found in toothpaste can also irritate and over-dry your skin.


3. Tight ponytails and buns can make your hair fall out.

Fact or Fiction? Fact.

Tight hairstyles can add stress to hair follicles and cause breakage.  Try to keep tight styles to a minimum. I wrote a blog post about this subject titled Give your hair a break, check it out!


4. Rubbing your eyes causes wrinkles

Fact or Fiction? Fact.

Rubbing your eyes doesn't directly cause wrinkles, but the pulling motion causes the thin skin around the eyes to crease, which over time leads to the appearance of premature ageing.


5. Rinsing with cold water after shampooing makes hair shinier.

Fact or Fiction? Fact.

Cold water closes the hair follicles, giving it a glossy finish.


6.  The neck ages faster than the face.

Fact or Fiction? Fact.

The skin on the neck is a little thinner than the face and the muscle and skin tissue are also weaker than the face.


That's all for this post...  If you enjoyed it, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, etc.  Thank you!
