3 Beauty Myths We All Fall For
False myths are all too common in the beauty world. Especially with the internet, false information gets around pretty quickly. Which has made many of us smarter when deciding what to believe on the internet.
But here’s 5 myths that still get to us even today!
1. Toothpaste on Pimple
We’ve had this moment, especially in high school! You spot a nasty zit and you go into panic mode. And it seems like everyone's doing toothpaste and it seems to be working.
Turns out, that isn’t really a good idea. Toothpaste contains ingredients that irritate the skin and potentially cause over-drying & even burning. It’s made to clean your teeth after all.
It’s better to have a skincare routine that prevents this from happening in the first place! Use a gentle exfoliating formula like the WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash.
It even has a brush that’s great for deep cleansing your pores with a formula that replenishes your skin’s outer barrier. Perfect for leaving your skin supple & protected!
2. You’re Not Washing Your Face Enough
There’s a popular notion that if you’re getting acne, you need more skin products.
There are many commercial skincare products that are formulated for short term results. In reality, the ingredients in these products only harm your skin in the long run. Which is why we created our very own skincare line made without any irritating and harsh ingredients with a focus on being natural. All our products are vegan & cruelty-free too!
3. Wearing Makeup Every Day is Bad
If you don’t have a serious skin condition, wearing makeup every day is fine. But where this myth really originates from is the improper skincare habits we have with makeup:
- Sleeping with your makeup still on
- Using only cleansing wipes to remove your makeup
- Not using the right skincare products specific to your skin type
Your skin is pretty grimy at night from all the oils, bacteria & dirt through your day. Cleansing wipes don’t really clean the skin, they help remove most of the makeup but it also spreads dirt, bacteria & makeup residue across your face.
Using the right skincare products is also important. Cleansers like WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash use a gentle formula that cleans out all of the grime without aggravating the skin.
This makes it a great choice for sensitive skin. Most store-bought products are made for general use and likely are not giving you any results.
