It's not nice to keep secrets. Yet it seems that in the beauty industry there are so many myths and secrets that have been going around for years. I want to bust some of these myths here! Hope you learn something! This is the third part of this series. To see myths #1 through #30, Click here.

Myth #31: Sleeping on your back can prevent wrinkles - TRUE! The American Academy of Dermatology says that sleeping in certain positions may result in "sleep lines." After time, these lines can turn into deep-set wrinkles.

Myth #32: Split ends can be repaired -
 FALSE! Unfortunately there is no way to repair split ends. To get rid of them you have to cut them off and just prevent them from coming back with good hair care.

 Myth #33: You should stick to only one brand or line of products - FALSE! While this is smart to do if you are very sensitive, you definitely do not have to do this. And this myth was most likely created by a cosmetics line that wanted to keep customers loyal to their line.

Myth #34: Natural ingredients must mean it is hypoallergenic then - FALSE! Everyone is different, and just because some products contain natural ingredients does not mean you cannot react to them. If you are allergic, you will definitely see a reaction. 

Myth #35: Chlorine from swimming in a pool will turn your hair green  - FALSE! Definitely a common misconception. However it is actually the copper that can turn your hair green. If the pool is not cleaned regularly or properly maintained, then it can have copper residue which in turn could turn your hair a greenish color. Now this is mostly for blondes since their pigment is so light, but all you have to do is switch to a low pH shampoo which will help combat against greening.

Myth #36: Crossing your legs will give you spider veins- FALSE! There are many ways to potentially develop varicose veins, but  crossing your legs is not one of them. Some examples of what could causes varicose veins include genetics, obesity, trauma to the skin, etc.

Myth #37: You can breakout from your cell phone- TRUE! Your cell phone is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and germs.Some experts say the average cell phone has more germs than doorknobs and even toilet seats. So make sure you  clean your cell phone screen every so often to help get rid of any bacteria or germs.

Myth #38: Pumping your mascara will make the application better. - FALSE! Do not do this as all you will be doing is pumping air into the tube causing the mascara to dry out. If you are almost out of mascara, try twisting the brush instead. 

Myth #39: Rinsing with cold water makes your hair shiny - FALSE! Hair specialist Phillip Kingsley, author of “The Hair Bible” advises, “Cold water may help close your pores, but it doesn't affect the hair cuticle in the same way." Your hair might look a bit shinier, but only briefly, and it won't get any healthier. Keep your hair shiny by eating protein-rich foods, working omega fatty acids into your diet, using a clarifying shampoo once a week and applying a nourishing conditioner every time you wash.

Myth #40: If my makeup contains SPF 15 then I'm protected from the sun -  FALSE! You won't get adequate protection from makeup alone, unless you were to cake it on. For you to get adequate protection, you need to use a teaspoon or two of sunscreen for just your face.

Myth #41: SPF 80 is better than SPF 30. -  FALSE! A SPF 80 will not protect more than SPF 30 if it doesn't contain ingredients that block both UVA and UVB rays. There are three ingredients to look for: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, and mexoryl, and as for the SPF number, you shouldn't be wearing anything less than SPF 30 with UVA/UVB protection."

I love these T/F things. ^^ I had to copy/paste this into Notepad, though, because the light text on the black(ish) background hurts my eyes. Have you considered a lighter layout? Don't get me wrong - I love your blog content, and I appreciate how much you put into it; this just has to do with the layout! :)
