10 Beauty Myths We All Fall For

We’re all suckers for a good lip balm or mascara, but we also tend to be suckers for the wild beauty myths that run rampant throughout our lives. We hear about them on Twitter, from our moms and through the media, but some beauty myths are just that: Myths. Here, we break down 10 beauty myths we all fall for, and why you should think twice the next time you take on a myth as a rule.

1. Shaving will make your body hair grow back thicker. While you may think that your hair grows back thicker each time you shave, this is not the case. Much to our pleasant surprise, the hair just appears shorter and a bit more stubbly, making it seem thicker than it really is in between shaves.

2. Pumping your mascara brush makes for better application. Although you think you’re picking up more product, more air is being let into the mascara tube, making your mascara dry out sooner than it should. This leads to dry, flaky lashes and bacteria in the mascara tube. Instead, swirl the mascara wand inside the tube to pick up more product.

3. If you only use hot tools on your hair once in a while, you don’t need heat protectant spray.  During the summer, we have more reservations than usual about using heat styling tools on our hair. Regardless of how often you use heat styling tools on your hair, you should be using a heat protectant spray each time.

4. There’s no way to prevent yellowing nails. While we know that consistently painting nails can eventually lead them to a yellow tint, there are a few ways to prevent and treat them. First, be sure to use a base coat before applying colored nail polish. Next, choose a top coat with UVA/UVB protection, helping to shield your nails from the sun. Also, use baking soda as a secret weapon to bring your nails back to life after heavy application of polish and when a yellow tint begins to appear.
