Here are 7 of the more common beauty myths we run into pretty regularly. Check them out and learn so that you can take the best possible care of yourself regarding beauty.
Myths: Dark circles are caused solely by a lack of sleep
Fact: Under-eye circles can also be caused due to other factors like genetics, vitamin deficiencies, insulin resistance.
Myth: If it burns or stings while applying, it means the product is working.
Fact: The stinging sensation you feel after applying the product doesn’t mean it is making your skin any better; instead, it means more harm than good, and your skin barrier is getting compromised.
Myth: You get acne because you don’t wash your face enough.
Fact: You won’t get acne just because you don’t wash your face enough. Acne occurs due to a combination of factors such as clogged pores, sebum, bacteria, and inflammation.
Myth: Dandruff is contagious and may get transferred from one person to another.
Fact: Dandruff is not contagious at all. You can’t give dandruff to anyone or catch it from your loved ones either.
Myth: Shaving or waxing causes your hair to regrow faster, darker and thicker.
Fact: Shaving and waxing your hair does not make your hair grow back faster, darker, and thicker. Hair regrowth can be different each time.

Myth: Toothpaste has antimicrobial properties which can kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin.
Fact: While bacteria levels may go down initially, other ingredients in the toothpaste can irritate skin and cause further breakouts.
