Fact or a myth?

Hey dolls,
Have you ever wonder of some things are really true...? Well don't wait anymore
Maybe your questions will be answered right now.
Here are some of the most questions that has to be cleared up!
Are they really what you thought or are the just another myth?

1. Soap is bad for your skin.
Older formulas contained animal fats and vegetable oils. Newer soaps are formulated to be milder and some contain moisturizers that don't dry out your skin. Clean skin is better than dirty skin.

2. Shaving your legs will make your hair grow in thicker.
You have as many hairs as is genetically determined, regardless of whether you shave them. However, shaving can make hairs appear "stubbier" and perhaps thicker.

3. Drinking a lot of water leads to beautiful skin.
While drinking water is necessary for our bodies, too much will only result in bloating and too many trips to the bathroom.

4. Split ends can be repaired.
The only way to rid of split ends is to cut them off and prevent them in the future with good hair care.

5. Dry skin causes wrinkles.
Not true. Most wrinkles are caused from the sun.

6. You can wash acne and pimples away.
Scrubbing too vigorously will increase oil production and only aggravate the condition.

7. The sun clears up blemishes.
While the sun will temporarily dry out pimples, it interferes with healthy skin cells. This can cause a worse breakout a couple days after sun exposure.

8. Stick to one brand and line of products.
This beauty myth was probably put out by cosmetic manufacturers who want to keep customers loyal to their brand.

9. You don't need to use sunscreen on a cloudy day.
The sun's UV rays penetrate clouds and can still damage your skin.

10. Natural ingredients are non-allergenic.
Whether it's a natural or chemical ingredient, if your allergic to it, you'll see a reaction.

11. Chocolate and greasy foods cause acne.
No one food has been proven to cause breakouts. If you find a correlation, quit eating that particular food.

12. You can shrink the pores on your face.
Your pore size is genetically determined. Pores may appear larger by bacteria and dead skin cells. Retin-A and alpa hydroxys are designed to break up these materials and bring the pores back to their original appearance.

13. Rinsing your hair in cold water will make it shiny.
False. Your hair will not shine any more than if you rinsed it in warm water.
