These Beauty Products Are Not As Bad As We Were Told
The number of beauty editors out there is unlimited, and with this comes a lot of false information. We hear a lot of good and bad reviews on the same product which can make things so messy and confusing. We are sure you’ve heard one of these sentences or all of them “Fragranced skincare is bad for you!”, “Never go out without SPF, you should apply even when sitting at home” or “cheap shampoo will make your hair fall!”
Well, you are not alone, we are in the same place. But in fact, these information are not necessarily right for everyone. The fact that a certain product doesn’t work for you, does not mean that it is not good for anyone. With that being said, the one key to a great beauty routine is finding what works for you with a little bit of research so you can feel safe with what you use. Let’s delve deeper into some underrated products and tell you why we think that they need some extra love.
1 || Fragranced Skincare
Yea, we hear a lot about how bad fragrance is and that we should steer away from it as much as we can, but how true is that? Well, yea those who have sensitive skin or some conditions like eczema, acne, or rosacea may benefit from cutting off fragrance in their skincare as it can worsen the irritation. But for normal people fragrance is not considered a bad thing at all. So unless your skin is irritated, you don’t have to replace your whole set of products just because it has a little bit of fragrance.
2 || SPF 30
The talk about SPF 30 and SPF 50 never ends! Usually, you will hear that SPF 50 is a better choice as it is more effective. But some beauty editors have another opinion; they see that using SPF 50 might be a preferred option on days when the UV index is high, however, for most of the year an SPF 30 is more than sufficient. But what is the difference between the two and why the SPF 50 is thought to be a better option? When applied right, an SPF 50 blocks around 98% of UVB rays, while an SPF 30 will block somewhere around 97%. So if you are an SPF master, this one percent wouldn’t matter much to you.
3 || Overpriced Skincare
Well, if you can afford these pricy luxurious products, wonderful! Otherwise, it is recommended to spend your money on consulting your dermatologist instead of going right away to the overpriced product that some Instagram blogger has recommended. Also, it is not always “the pricier, the better” you know. You don’t have to break the bank to get great-looking skin. There are a lot of skincare products out there that do a similar job to most of the super-expensive.
4 || Scrubs
They damage the skin barrier and ruin your complexion, this is true if you scrub like crazy. None of that will happen if you scrub gently and know when to stop. Ideally, scrubbing once every two weeks should be enough.
5 || Celebrity-Owned Brands
Whether you like it or not, some celebrity beauty brands offer really good products like Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez.
6 || Silicone Haircare
Turns out that silicone might not be as scary as everyone is trying to convince us. If you are following the curly method which involves cutting out silicone completely, just stick to that. But generally is not as bad as we think. It can actually be beneficial to those who have crispy, dry strands that lack a certain gloss. Have you ever noticed how your hair feels after washing it with a product that contains silicone? Yep, shiny, glossy, and soft. Some hairstylists may tell you that it’ll weigh down your hair and yes this may happen if you wash your hair with such products every single day… Solving this is very simple though, all you need to do is use a clarifying shampoo to remove all buildup.
