10 Popular Internet Beauty Tips That Can Seriously Hurt Your Health

Today I managed to collect popular beauty tips from the Internet that can have serious negative health consequences.

Using essential oils for masks and wrappingAlthough there is really nothing bad about using essential oils. For example, citrus essential oils can help you get rid of cellulite. But don't use too much of it if you do wrapping at home because too much essential oil can cause burns complete with blisters and itching. It's better to add just a few drops at a time to be safe.

Careprost for eyelash growthThe patients who treated their glaucoma with Careprost noticed that after using it, their eyelashes started growing much faster and appeared stronger. However, some people's eyelashes didn't change at all. And some people even began to lose their eyelashes. So be careful when using Careprost.

Using a toothbrush for peeling lipsAnother popular tip from the Internet is to massage your lips with a toothbrush after brushing your teeth. This peeling method can traumatize the soft skin on your lips. And any bacteria living on the toothbrush will be happy to move into the cracks of your lips.

Mustard mask for hair growthIt's true that oil, eggs, sugar, and mustard seem to be a great mixture for hair growth. However, it can cause a lot of problems like burns, redness and even peeling skin. Remember: mustard can cause a serious allergic reaction leading to eye swelling, coughing and even suffocation and urticaria. Before you use such a mask, test it on your elbow and see what your reaction is.

Solvent as a way to dilute dried nail polishNail polish remover is not the best way to fix a dry bottle of nail polish. You can both ruin the nail polish and your nails. Your nails can turn yellow and become cracked. So, use a special diluent when trying to loosen your polish.

Warm oil with lemon juice for nail growthFor this mixture, warm up some oil, add lemon juice and soak your hands in it. This procedure is supposed to stimulate the growth of your nails. However, the lemon will just dry the cuticle, the skin and the nails which will make them more vulnerable to damage. And remember that lemon juice is a strong allergen.

Cosmetic oil instead of facial creamYou should know that using basic oils instead of facial cream is another popular lifehack when it comes to skincare. Oils can cause comedones, dryness and allergic reactions. If you can't stop using oils instead of cream, use it no more than two times a week.

Using soda for facial peelingAccording to, soda is one of the most popular things that people use as a scrub. It seems that it can clear the face well without damaging it. But why soda dangerous because it differs from your body's pH-balance. The skin's pH balance is 4.5 and soda's balance is a 9. That's why soda dries the skin, causes wrinkles, and premature aging.

Clearing skin with boric acidBoric acid is used in clearing tonics, washing gels and peeling agents. So, it seems that if you use just boric acid alone, the clearing process should go faster and the effect should last longer. However, this isn't true. Pure acid won't clear anything, it will only leave burns and skin irritation

Lightening hair with laundry detergentIf someone had a bad experience dying their hair and they don't like the color, this method suggests they wash their hair out with detergent. Yes, some people really use this method. But detergents contain harmful phosphates. They cause skin dryness, skin irritation, rashes, and hair loss.
