Debunking 5 Common Beauty Myths

Does shaving make hair grow back thicker and faster?

Does shaving make hair grow back thicker and faster? Can toothpaste be used to treat pimples and blemishes? Will plucking grey hair cause more of them to grow?

These are just some of the many beauty myths that we have heard all our lives. But are they actually true? Read on to know more.

Myth # 1

Don’t Pluck Grey Hair Or Two Will Show Up In Its Place

This is totally baseless and false. Although we have been listening to this all our lives from our grandmas and parents, there is no proof of it. In fact, according to hair and beauty experts, plucking hair, irrespective of whether they are black or grey, can create bald patches on your head. This is the exact opposite of more grey hair growing. Thus, don’t pluck the grey hair, not because it will cause more grey hair to show up, but because you don’t want bald patches here and there in your head, do you? It is better to cover your grey hair with color or a good cut.

Plucking the grey hair is also not a long term solution to the problem, but just a temporary one. Since the follicle of the hair is still alive even if you pluck the grey hair, a hair will most probably grow back in its place. However, it is not necessary that a grey hair will grow out. The chances of a grey hair or a hair of your natural color regrowing in its place are fairly equal. Therefore, though we suggest not to pluck your grey hair in the first place, you don’t have to worry about two growing back in its place.

Myth # 2

Moisturizer Is Only Needed For Dry Skin

This myth is categorically false. Irrespective of the skin type you have, moisturizing is necessary not only for a healthy complexion but also a healthy skin over all. You will be surprised to know that if you do not use a moisturizer, the skin will actually compensate for it by producing more of oil or sebum. Conversely, to the old beliefs that using moisturizer on oily skin makes it oilier, using a moisturizer on oily skin is actually beneficial for the skin. It is indeed the best way to balance the oily complexion of the skin. However, it is important to choose the right moisturizer. If you have oily skin, go for a moisturizer that has a gel based light weight formula that provides your face with the right amount of moisture and does not leave it looking greasy and oily.

The skin needs its required amount of hydration to look flawless. If you deprive the skin of the moisture that it needs, as a counter action, it is going to produce more oil. This will not only make your skin look greasy and bad, but will also cause a number of underlying problems such as acne, pimples and open pores. It is therefore, important to find for your skin the right moisturizer that will provide it with the right kind and quantity of moisture for it to look and feel flawless.

Myth # 3

Shaving Your Hair Will It Grow Back Thicker And Faster

This is perhaps one of the most common and most frequently heard beauty myths of all. Razors have a bad reputation especially when it comes to women using them. You may have heard this myth from your mother, relatives or a friend that shaving hair using a razor will make them grow back faster and thicker. You might be pleased to hear that there is no evidence whatsoever to prove this myth.

When you shave your hair, you are just cutting them from the end. This is not going to have any effect on the roots and thus, it will not affect the growth of the hair or its thickness. However, there are reasons that you might feel that they actually grow back thicker and here is why. At the shaft base, the hair is the widest. When you use a razor to shave the hair, you are cutting them right across their widest part. When the hair begins to regrow, you may feel they are thicker and stiffer than the ends that you shaved earlier. This is the only reason behind this myth and we have debunked it for you.

Myth # 4

Protect Your Skin From Sunburn With A Base Tan

While there are a number of beauty myths that you might have heard of every single day, this might be the most ridiculous of all. This is simply utter nonsense as there is no such thing like a safe tan that exists in this world. A tan is simply a sign that your skin has been damaged due to the UV radiations of the sun. When you expose your skin to the sun and the UV rays coming from it, you actually cause the skin to react by producing a hormone named melanin that causes your skin to go darker. Having a base tan will provide you protection against sun burn even less than a white t shirt will do.

There is only one way to protect your skin from sun burn and the consequent damage related to it and it is a sunscreen with SPF more than 30. The sun emits harmful ultraviolet rays that can severely damage the skin. So the next time you are going to the beach, make sure you have a sunscreen. Don’t fall a prey to this myth that can actually cause more damage to your skin than protect it against the dangerous rays of the sun.

Myth # 5

Toothpaste Cures Blemishes And Shrinks Pimples

If you believe in this myth, you have been wrong all your life. Toothpaste has menthol as one of the key ingredients. While menthol can help in easing inflammation and cool burns, it can neither cure not treat blemishes or has anything to do with pimples. In fact, there are a number of active ingredients in toothpastes that can irritate the breakouts. It is, therefore, better to stick to the topical treatments that have been proven to help against these problems.

There are numerous treatments like using ingredients such as sulfur or salicylic acid. You can also take care of these skin issues using some natural remedies such as tea tree oil. If you have acne on your skin, don’t even think of using toothpaste as it is likely going to cause more irritation and will aggravate the skin condition making it worse. It is, therefore, suggested that you don’t aggravate such skin conditions using these methods, instead, take proper care of them using specialized products. After all, it is your skin and you don’t want to ruin it.

    Along with almost everything that appears to be developing within this specific subject material, a significant percentage of perspectives tend to be quite exciting. Even so, I am sorry, but I can not give credence to your entire suggestion, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to us that your remarks are not entirely validated and in simple fact you are yourself not totally confident of your point. In any event I did take pleasure in looking at it.
