Beauty Myths & Magic Tricks!

Some of the best beauty tips and tricks of all time!

Myth - Natural is better

The decision to use natural products rather than those that contain synthetic ingredients should be based on personal preference as opposed to scientific fact, since there isn’t any scientific research to support the notion. An ingredient may have started out on a tree, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t chemically altered or processed on the way to the jar or tube.

Magic - A flawless paint job

Paint your nails in the evening and don’t worry about painting over the cuticles. Afterwards lightly rub a little cuticle oil over the nails. The next morning, rub off the ‘mistakes’ in the shower; they will lift away effortlessly. Then just add a top coat.

Myth - Toothpaste is a great spot buster

This myth arose from the days when toothpaste contained zinc, an ingredient recommended for problem skin, but this has been replaced with more effective ingredients such as fluoride and antibacterial ingredients that actually exacerbate spots.

Magic - Splashing my face with cold water will keep me looking young

It might momentarily firm and freshen skin, but in the long run it will do more damage than good. Sharp increases or decreases in temperature can cause permanent damage.

Myth - Foundation causes spots

On the contrary, wearing foundation can actually assist skin that is prone to breakouts, if it contains ingredients to control oil. What’s important is that you cleanse your skin gently but effectively at the end of the day to remove foundation and debris.

Magic - Doe eyes

Pull the mascara wand out of the tube and, using the end of the brush, brush mascara onto the roots of the outside upper lashes first. Then work your way over to the inner corners with the rest of the brush – by then there will be just enough mascara on the brush so it doesn’t clump.

Myths & Magic

Myth - A squeaky clean skin is good

A squeaky clean skin has had its surface film removed – the film that protects your skin, keeping it resilient and youthful.

Magic - Spot on

Grind an aspirin and mix it with a little water to make a paste. Apply the paste directly to the spot. Aspirin contains salicylic acid, the same ingredient in many cosmetics formulated for problem skin. It purifies pores, loosens dead skin and reduces inflammation and redness.

Myth - I only tan once a year when I go on holiday, so it’s not so bad for my skin:

Burning your skin once a year to get a tan is a sure-fire way of destroying it. While any tan damages your skin, intense exposure once a year is the most damaging of all.

Magic - Lift dark or opaque lip colour with Petroleum Jelly:

The colour looked good in the tube, but now that you’ve applied it, it scares you and the neighbours! Simply apply Vaseline over your whole lip area and then blot your lips on a tissue. The colour will lift beautifully. 

Myths & Magic 

Myth - Only drinking water will rehydrate my skin

Litres of water will have you running to the loo but won’t hydrate your skin. The structure responsible for keeping water in the skin is made up partially of fats, so ensure that your diet includes essential fatty acids.

Magic - Rather than putting fragrance onto your skin,

spritz it on your clothes where it won’t be changed by your skin’s chemistry.

Myth - Eating chocolate causes spots 
Chocolate does not cause spots but the sugar it contains does, and a diet high in refined carbs, saturated fats and with lots of items high on the glycaemic index will cause skin problems.

Magic - A dent in your nail enamel

Wet the pad of a finger with a little nail enamel remover and gently rub the dent until it’s smoothed over.

Myth - Brush your hair 100 times a day

It might be good for your scalp, but not for the length of your hair. Repetitive brushing damages your hair and can cause breakage and splitting. It also distributes the natural oils, which leads to the need for more regular washing. Brush hair only when necessary.

Magic - What hair colour suits me?

You know your hair colour suits you when it enhances your eyes.
