Girls, if you believe that all the tricks and hacks that the holy internet provides you are just suitable enough to follow, then you are very wrong! Because there are many tricks, hacks and DIY tricks that are not just harmful but also can leave behind an everlasting negative impact upon your face.
Well, there are numerous DIYs and tricks that simplify your daily routine and prove to be beneficial.
But that’s not always the case.
You definitely don’t want to ruin your beautiful features while trying to perfectly preserve it by trying some unproven tricks.
So, next time before trying any untrustworthy method, make sure you think twice.
For now, lets us inform you about those DIYs which you should definitely be a big NO for you.
Using corn starch as setting powder:
This DIY trick doesn’t even worth a try.
You are presuming as it is capable to thicken your gravy of your veg or non-veg curry by drying up the extra water, so it will also able to dry up the extra moisture of your face skin. Besides, as it is white in colour, it will also enhance your beauty.
That’s totally wrong. Please, no! For regular cornstarch hasn’t been experimented yet as a cosmetic and moreover as per Dr Zeichner, it will leave a white discolouration on your skin. And if you have a sweaty face, then bacteria will breed.
So? Of course, you won’t give a try.
Adding Glowstick chemicals to nail polish:
Glowstick chemical to your nail polish! Sounds brilliant? But this DIY tip actually doesn’t work. Rather it harms you.
Yes because these ‘non-toxic’ labelled chemicals can actually turn out to be very toxic to you as it can cause tiny bits of glass fall into your nail polish.
And if this really happens, aren’t you aware of its immediate results?
Plus, you might notice a warning on many packages that states to rinse off the area and contacting the poison control centre immediately if the chemicals come in contact with your skin.
Why will invite troubles for you?
Using hairspray for setting your makeup:
If it is a hairspray then it means the spray only needs to be applied to your hairs and not anywhere else. If you are planning to apply it on your skin, then stop it immediately. It can lead to skin irritations and acnes.
You obviously don’t want to set your make-up with hair spray now.
Using baking soda as a face scrub:
Baking soda is an ingredient for you cake batter and not certainly a cosmetic. If you mixed it water and apply it to your skin, it will surely hinder your PH balance.
However, there has been an ongoing debate whether it is ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe’ because many derms claim it to be pretty safe while deny to agree.
But it is wise to play safe. Instead try the face scrubbers available in the market specifically meant for your skin.
Stay safe and secured!
Applying lemon directly to your skin:
Lemon is a good citrus food. It contains Vitamin C has other nourishing ingredients that is seriously beneficial. But applying it directly is not always a good DIY idea. The lemon juice causes skin irritation and moreover, when you are exposed to sunlight with the lemon juice left to dry on your skin, it can lead to skin-burning.
Mascara made of Oreos:
We will prefer to munch on those oreo rather than use it as mascara.
Outlandish as it sounds, it is also not at all for your eyes. Some blogger crushed oreos until it turned into fine dust and mixed it will water and foundation primer to make its use as mascara. Let us tell you, these oreo crumbs can make you feel not only irritation but can also cost you heavy as you may have to visit your nearest ophthalmologist.
So, dear girls, next time if you try anything make sure that you have done some research on it; otherwise it can cost you in many ways.
