Fact or Fiction? - Beauty myths, debunked! #2

Hello everyone!

Today I have another Fact or Fiction? post for you.  It’s time to test your beauty knowledge, again!  Find out which of these commonly held beliefs are true and which ones are just myths.

1. You can shrink your pores.

Fact or Fiction? Fiction.

At least, mostly fiction.  For instance, an egg-white mask can minimize your pores, but only temporarily.  You can't make pores physically smaller.

2. Wearing polish will turn your nails yellow.

Fact or Fiction? Fact. 

Wearing dark polish can make your fingernail and toenails appear yellowish because the polish stains your nails.  Don’t worry though; you can use one of these 3 methods to whiten yellow nails

3. Wearing high heels can give you varicose veins.

Fact or Fiction? Fact. 

The pressure caused by standing up, especially in high heels, can lead to varicose veins.

4. Crossing your legs can give you varicose veins.

Fact or Fiction? Fiction.

Standing up, especially with high heel shoes puts pressure on your legs, not sitting with your legs crossed, and it’s that pressure that can cause varicose veins.

5. Cocoa butter or olive oil can get rid of stretch marks.

Fact or Fiction? Fiction.

Stretch marks  are caused by tearing of the dermis, which over time may diminish, but will not disappear completely.  Cocoa butter and olive oil can’t penetrate that deep into the skin.

6. A beer rinse will give you thicker hair.

Fact or Fiction? Fact. 

Using beer as a final rinse will make your hair thicker until the next  wash, but it will also make you smell like a pub.  Yikes!

Hypoallergenic means you won't have any negative reactions to the product.
