Usually it is advertising and attractive packaging that play a decisive role in the choice of cosmetics. However, makeup artist, beauty expert and book author Paula Begoun advises against believing manufacturers who resort to trickery to get us to buy. Interesting to know shares the tricks used by manufacturers of cosmetics.
Myth # 1. The more famous the brand, the better the effect
The effectiveness of a cosmetic product depends on the chemical composition, which is often the same in different products.
Myth # 2. Anti-aging cosmetics exist
There is no anti-aging cream. You just need to find a cream that suits your skin type. Age-related cosmetics, in fact, help get rid of pigmentation, improve skin elasticity and make wrinkles slightly less noticeable.
Myth No. 3. A special cream is needed for the skin of the eyelids
Eye cream is essentially the same cream, only it costs several times more and is sold in a small tube. And the inscription on the packaging "avoid the area around the eyes" should be understood literally: the cream should not get into the eyes.
Myth number 4. Cellulite can be eliminated with a cream
There is no scientific evidence that the cream can get rid of cellulite. They are all equally useless. And if you want to get rid of cellulite - sign up for a fitness room and go on a diet.
Myth # 5. Organic cosmetics are better than conventional ones
"Organic cosmetics" - PR in its purest form. It can be safe because it does not contain a list of scary substances, but that does not automatically make it effective. At the same time, manufacturers are silent about the chemistry in the composition, which helps to preserve the medicinal properties of organics.
Myth number 6. The cream gets rid of expression lines
No cosmetics can perform the same function as botox or injectables. No cream will help you get rid of dark circles, wrinkles, or stretch marks.
Myth # 7. You need to apply sunscreen just so you don't burn out on the beach
You should also use sunscreen in winter. It is the most important defense against wrinkles, age spots, elastane and collagen loss. It can be a moisturizer with SPF, a foundation with SPF or a special sunscreen, as long as it contains zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or avobenzone.
Myth # 8. Shampoo can stop hair loss
The shampoo is on the scalp for only a couple of minutes, so in such a short time it cannot work. The main purpose of shampoo is to cleanse the hair. Hair care secret - conditioner balm and hair masks.
Myth number 9. Hair can be dyed without harming it
None of the hair dyes (except for natural basma and henna) can be harmless. And all because the effect of hair dye is to destroy the hair pigment and introduce the coloring pigment there.
Myth # 10. Sunburn is safe
Tanning cannot be safe on the beach or in the solarium. If you want to become the owner of a chocolate-colored skin, use a self-tanner.
