Everyone wants to look good and are willing to do whatever it takes. However, there are some boundaries you should not cross when it comes to beauty and lifestyle. Some of these counsels are as fake as they come. Here are some of them:

Using baking soda to exfoliate your skin

This has become a classic popular beauty tip. Baking soda is alkaline, which disrupts your skin’s pH level. This makes exposes to infections, breakouts, and irritation.

Brightening your skin with lemons 

You should never put lemon juice on your skin. It can burn your skin because it’s very acidic. Lemon also makes your skin more sensitive to the ultraviolet radiation, putting you at risk of pigmentation and cancer.

Brushing pimples with toothpaste 

Toothpaste doesn’t dry out your pimples—it dries the skin around them, which can make your pimple look worse.

Using deodorant to remove the shine on your face

You might think that since deodorant keeps your armpits dry, it can also remove shine from your face. This is wrong because deodorants don’t help you combat oil on your face. In addition, they can irritate your skin with their alcohol content and can burn if they get into your eyes.

Putting petroleum Jelly on your eyelashes

Many ladies think if they add petroleum jelly on their eyelashes, it will make your lashes grow longer and fuller. Na…Petroleum jelly can also clog your pores or lead to an eye infection because it’s just not meant for use anywhere near your eyes!
