Social media is instrumental in many of our problems today. Be it travel ideas or beauty tips, we turn to various social media platforms to find answers to our questions. To look beautiful and charming, the trending tutorials and DIYs on Instagram or Facebook often become our beauty tutors. While multiple hacks will work, many hacks can get you in trouble. Let’s take a look at some of the trending beauty hacks you shouldn’t try to protect your skin from serious damage.
Remove blackheads with petroleum jelly
There is a popular hack that uses regular petroleum jelly and warm towels to remove blackheads. While the hack is effective in getting rid of the blackheads and giving you clean skin, it can leave you with wide-open pores. Leaving your pores open can damage your skin in the long run as it is exposed to dirt and pollution.
Bleach with lemon
Lemon is a great way to tan and get the shine. However, one should never use lemon juice directly on the skin. It can cause itching and a burning sensation. Do not use lemon juice to whiten your arms, armpits or lips.
Baking soda for shine
If you’re using baking soda on your skin to brighten it up, stop using it right away. Baking soda disrupts the skin’s natural pH level and takes away natural moisture, leaving skin looking dry and stretchy.
wash on face
Threading can be a painful and slow process. Therefore, to save time and remove excess hair, people usually go for facial waxing. If you also want to have a wax done on the face, never try it yourself. Always seek the help of a professional. Professionals are experts in determining wax temperature, skin type and technique. However, if you do it alone at home, you could burn yourself.
While DIY hacks are usually a win, it’s extremely important to verify the claims before trying them out for yourself. Be careful and keep your skin happy!
