15 Beauty Myths Busted

The term fake news has been in the spotlight quite a bit recently, and while it may usually be in reference to politics, it can definitely apply to the beauty industry too. There are so many beauty myths out there that people religiously follow, even though they may be so far from the truth.

Take a look at these # busted beauty myths to ensure that you really are in-the-know when it comes to your body.

Myth 1: Foundation is Bad for Skin

This myth is a tricky one, because, in the past, it did used to be true.

However, modern foundation formulas now bust this myth wide open…


By being non-comedogenic, which means that they do not block the pores, and therefore will not cause the multitude of skin issues that come from clogged pores. These formulas allow your skin to breathe, meaning that they do not cause any damage.

In fact, some dermatologists even recommend wearing foundation, as it can provide your skin with an extra barrier against all of the skin-damaging dangers of the environment around you. 

But you must not forget…

Always remove your makeup with a quality makeup remover at the end of the day. This could be where this beauty myth arose from, because sleeping with your makeup on will do everything from cause breakouts to accelerate the aging process.

Myth 2: Tanning Beds are Safer Than the Sun

Do you believe that tanning beds are a safer way to tan?

If so, you need to change your thinking immediately…

Tanning beds are just as, if not more, dangerous than tanning underneath the sun, and both of these methods should be avoided.

Melanoma, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer, is actually becoming quite the epidemic amongst young women, and this is directly related to regular tanning bed usage, as well as increased sun exposure for the purpose of tanning. 

Wondering how to safely add some extra color to your skin?

A self-tanner is the best way, and there are so many different options available now.

Myth 3: Your Neck Ages Like Your Face

Your skin’s thickness varies in different areas, and the parts of your skin that are thinner are also the parts that will age faster.

The skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin on your body, and the skin on your neck resembles this far more than the skin on the rest of your face. This is why your neck is often one of the first parts of your body to experience wrinkles.

So, what can you do about this?

Give your neck the same special treatment that you give to the skin around your eyes, applying serums and creams on a daily basis.

Don’t forget…

The skin on your neck also needs to be cleansed daily, as dirt, pollutants or any other impurities will only speed up the rate of aging even more.

Myth 4: Only Teenagers Get Acne

While teenagers may commonly suffer from acne, adult acne is also extremely widespread. In fact, between 40% and 55% of the adult population, aged between 20 and 40, suffer from adult acne.

Adult acne is something that can hit you at any stage in life, and just because you never suffered from teenage acne does not mean that you will be exempt from adult acne. Acne can be caused by a number of different factors, but the fact that it is on the rise, especially in women, points to the fact that increased stress is one of the main reasons behind it

Fortunately, there are several different ways in which you can clear up acne, from medication to essential oils

You should also avoid any acne-causing foods, and make sure that you are using skin care products that are designed for acne-prone skin. 

Myth 5: Shaving Makes Your Hair Grow Back Thicker

Many people avoid shaving their legs, as well as other parts of their body, because they assume that shaving will mean that the hair in this area will grow back even thicker.

But this is not actually true…

When your hair grows back, it will be short and stubbly, and while this may give off the appearance of it being thicker, it is actually the same thickness as before.

Myth 6: You Shouldn’t Pluck Gray Hair Out

This myth is quite a varied one, with some believing that plucking a gray hair will make two grow back in its place, while others believe the number to be seven.

However, gray hair follicles are exactly the same as your other hair follicles, and will not suddenly start producing extra hairs.

This means that, if you do happen to spot a gray, feel free to pluck it out!

Myth 7: If A Product Stings, It’s Working

It is very rare for a product to cause stinging if it is actually benefiting your skin.

The stinging sensation is a reaction from your skin to let you know that the ingredients in the product that you have just applied do not agree with you, and this is something that you need to take seriously.

In addition to stinging, you may experience redness or skin tightness, both of which are also signs that you need to stop using that product.

Myth 8: Pores Can Be Opened and Closed

If only this myth were true!

Sadly, pores cannot be opened and closed, and their size is determined by genetics, meaning that there is not much that you can do about this.

However, when your pores become clogged, whether this may be with dirt, oil or anything else, this makes each individual pore more visible, making them appear larger.

While you cannot physically shrink the size of your pores, you can still minimize their appearance.


By keeping them clean, with regular cleansing and exfoliation, as well as facial steaming, which helps to loosen any dirt and sebum.

Facial steaming can help unclog pores.

Myth 9: You Don’t Need Sunscreen If You Have SPF Makeup

The SPF in your makeup products is there to provide you with additional protection from the sun, not all of the protection that you need.

The amount of SPF that is actually in your makeup products is extremely small, and will definitely not provide you with enough protection on its own. If you really needed it to, you would need to apply layer upon layer of it, so much more than you would usually wear.

Myth 10: If It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunscreen

Whether you can feel the sun directly shining on you or not, its UV rays are still around, even on extremely cloudy days.

In fact, the American Academy of Dermatologists state that 80% of the sun’s UV rays can pass through cloud, as well as smog and glass.

While 80% may be less than 100%, the clouds can sometimes even double UV exposure


By reflecting UV rays off their edges, therefore intensifying their strength. 

This means that, no matter what the weather may be like, sunscreen still needs to be worn every day.

Myth 11: You Should Test Out Makeup on Your Inner Wrist

Have you ever tested makeup on your inner wrist, only to find that the shade does not quite match your complexion in the way that you thought it would?

This is because your inner wrist is actually the lightest part of your body, meaning that using this area to test makeup shades will cause inaccurate results.

So, where should you test makeup colors?

Your jawline would be best, but make sure that the color also works with the skin tone on your chest.

Myth 12: Scrubbing Harder Is Better

While it may feel as though you are scrubbing away all of the dirt from your skin’s layers, scrubbing your skin too hard, especially your face, will only end up causing so much damage.

Exfoliation should not hurt, and it should actually be quite a gentle process.

Scrub gently.

Wondering how often to exfoliate?

Two to three times a week is enough. Although it may seem as though exfoliating more often could help your skin, this will only strip your skin of its essential oils, leaving it vulnerable to so much damage.

Myth 13: If You Have Oily Skin, You Don’t Need a Moisturizer

It is true that oily skin holds more moisture than dry skin, but this does not at all mean that you should be skipping out on using a moisturizer.

While many believe that the primary role of a moisturizer is to add moisture to the skin, this is not true…

A moisturizer is designed to form a thin film over the surface of your skin, preventing existing moisture from evaporating while protecting the skin from the environment. Moisturizers nourish and hydrate the skin, which is something that all skin types would benefit from.

The key here is the type of moisturizer that you use.

If you know that you have oily skin, then you need to be using a moisturizer that is designed for oily skin types.

Why does this matter so much?

Because the moisturizer will contain ingredients that your skin really needs, such as those that will help to control excess oil production while killing any acne-causing bacteria.

Myth 14: If Something Doesn’t Work Within a Week, You Should Toss It Out

A week is definitely not long enough to see whether or not a product is going to help your skin.

While it may seem difficult, you need to exercise a little patience here…

Often, products work due to the cumulative effect of their ingredients, which means that you need to give them more time to build up in your skin.

So, how long should you wait before moving on to a new product?

This really depends on what you are using. For products such as cleansers, give it a month. Serums and eye creams need about two months, while over-the-counter retinol products can take ten weeks to have an effect. 

The exception here is your moisturizer…

Many of these will show instant results. If your skin has not shown an improvement with a new moisturizer in two weeks, it is time to switch this for another one. This applies to body creams too, although if you are treating extremely dry skin, you may need to give it a few weeks.

If you are using a product that is quite specialized, it would be worth doing some research to find out how long it took for others to notice a difference.

Myth 15: Day Creams and Night Creams Are the Same

This might be true when it comes to unscrupulous skin care companies, but, when it comes to quality brands, there is most definitely a difference between day creams and night creams.

The difference comes in the ingredients that are used, as well as the way in which the cream is formulated.

Night creams tend to be slightly thicker and richer, as this helps to prevent moisture evaporation overnight. This is the time during which your skin heals itself and regenerates, making it important that it has enough moisture to perform all of its necessary functions.

Night creams will also often contain ingredients that should not be used during the day, as they can exacerbate sensitivity to the sun. On the other hand, a day cream will often contain SPF, which a night cream does not need to have.

Of course, this does not mean that two separate creams are absolutely essential…

While a different night and day cream can help your skin, a quality moisturizer that can be used both day and night will also be beneficial.

There are so many beauty myths out there that it can often seem as though there is nothing that you can believe. However, if you are ever in any doubt of information that you come across, do not be afraid to take the time and do a little research, so that you can make a well-informed choice.

    I have always used foundation and felt that it helped moisturize my skin, plus give it a little protection from the sun. I wasn’t surprised that it was okay to use, but I was surprised that it was a myth that it could be bad for you! I enjoyed the facts about skin care! Thank you, Lionesse!

    I’m going to be smug and say I already knew almost all of these were myths – only Myth 9: You Don’t Need Sunscreen If You Have SPF Makeup caught me out as I always thought a good quality thick moisturiser with SPF30+ was fine on its own, at least that is my own experience :o)

If a cleanser doesn’t seem to be agreeing with me within a few days to a week, I still using it. My retinol products I’ve given a week or two tops…same with everything lol. Thank you!

    I have to say that this is truly one of the most interesting articles I have ever read about beauty myths. I thought I knew it all, but I was surprised by a few facts. I really thought pores could be opened with hot water and closed with cold water. I also thought my makeup provided enough sunscreen. This is great to know because I am going buy some Roc retinol and I will have to purchase a separate sunscreen to protect my face. Another biggie is #14. I always think products should work overnight. I forgot about the cumulative effects. I usually use something until the jar is empty as to not waste money, but I have to remember certain creams will make my skin prettier and healthier over a period of time. Great article. Thanks!

    Common sense tells you that if you trim the dead ends from your hair will not help to grow longer. Other than dead ends will peel away your hair and shorten it. Keep your skin clean will keep blackheads and pimples away. However, too much abrasion will do the same, be gentle, pat skin dry and do not pull.
