10 Worst Beauty Tips You Need to Ignore

1. Your lip liner should be a shade darker than the lipstick

The biggest and worst beauty faux pas would be to follow this one beauty advice. Using a darker liner is not only an ancient beauty trend, but a visible liner is just a strict no-no in the fashion world. So, no matter how tempting the idea may sound, stay away from giving it a try.

2. Shave your eyebrow and redraw

When you shave your eyebrows, you lose all of its depth and volume. Moreover, your brow hair always grow back unevenly compelling you to shave them again and again. If you are not keen on keeping the volume, try microblading instead.

3. No moisturizer if your skin is oily

One of the worst skin care myths is that of not using moisturizer if you have oily skin. But when the skin is not properly hydrated, it starts producing excess oil in order to keep itself hydrated. Therefore, it is always advisable to moisturize your skin on a regular basis. For oily skin, try using a water-based moisturizer instead of anything cream or oil-based. This way, you won’t clog your pores. Look for hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic sunscreen lotions too.

4. Use deeper shades of blush

That used to be a trend, but back in the 80’s. Now, it’s just an outdated fashion trend that one must not follow.

5. You don’t need sunscreen in winter/monsoon

The reason behind wearing sunblock is not the heat, but the harmful sun rays that cause the worst damage to the skin apart from accelerating aging. To protect your skin from sun exposure, it is always recommended you use sunscreen throughout the year, even when you stay indoors and also on cloudy days.

6. Iron to get straight hair

Ironing your hair to straighten it without taking proper precautionary measures is perhaps one of the deadliest things you can do to your hair. The harsh heat could cause permanent damage to the hair, making it extremely dry and frizzy. Always use the right hair-straightening products or heat protecting serums and cover your hair properly before ironing it.

7. Trim your hair regularly

It’s okay to sometimes let your hair grow without chopping the length off. Going for trimming once in four months is a better idea.

8. Wash your body with hot water

Lukewarm water? Yes. Extremely hot water? No. If the water is too hot, it will absorb the oil off the skin, leaving it dry and dehydrated. Moreover, your skin may get burned.

9. Use an entire range of beauty products to get the desired effect

Well, that’s just a marketing strategy and nothing else.

10. Comb your wet hair

Combing wet hair only causes excessive hair loss. After washing your hair, let it air dry or towel-dry it gently before combing it.
