There are lots of creams and lotions that guarantee a more “Beautiful You”; but are they worth the price? Here are some to avoid without losing your “natural beauty”.
Women use Toner on their face to get a “clean” feel, but some dermatologists say that is unnecessary. Modern soap doesn’t leave the residue that was the original reason for toner. Most women can skip it.
Over-the-counter Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner are not really a solution. In fact, they can actually dry out your scalp, making your dandruff worse. Medical conditions like psoriasis or eczema can cause dandruff, so see your doctor if it gets bad. Otherwise, moisturize your scalp by brushing your hair with a natural-bristle brush before you wash. This redistributes natural oils, stimulates your scalp and avoids shedding; and a brush costs a lot less than shampoo and conditioner.
Just about everyone uses hand cream, so why buy foot cream as well? Just use petroleum jelly. Apply it a few times a week, then put on socks and you’ll get smoother skin while you sleep. If it feels too greasy, use hand cream sold by most dermatologists with chemical ingredients that draw in water.
While everyone wants dimple-free skin, don’t bother buying anti-cellulite lotion. They may work temporarily, but none of them firm your body or reduce cellulite long-term. A good workout in the gym and eating right are more likely to help.
Applying Vitamin E Capsules directly to the skin for “anti-aging” exposes the pills to light, rendering them useless and the preservatives in the pills may irritate your face. Use a cream containing vitamin E in a form that light doesn’t affect, creating far better beautifying benefits than capsules.
