14 Beauty Life Hacks From the Internet That Appeared to Be Harmful

14 Beauty Life Hacks From the Internet That Appeared to Be Harmful

Not all the information on the Internet should be trusted. Some tips just won’t work, but some can actually be harmful.

In order for us to stay safe, MUMY BEAR collected these “anti-tips” that should not be followed.

14. Transparent nail polish for concealing lip herpes

You’d better not follow this tip because nail polish applied to such a rash may cause irritation or aggravation. Purchase a special cream in the drugstore, and carry it with you.

13. PVA glue against blackheads

This is absolutely ineffective and even dangerous. Glue may cause allergies and skin or eye irritation. Use appropriate and safe solutions for blackhead removal, for example, pore strips.

12. Home lip plumping

Perhaps this notion comes from our childhood. We all did it: stuck our lips into a glass and sucked the air in. However, instead of Angelina Jolie-style lips, you’ll get a horrible blue circle around your mouth.

11. Using hair spray to fix your makeup

10. Using horse shampoo

9. Raw potato for oily skin

8. Lemon juice for getting rid of freckles

 7. Cookie mascara

6. Colored pencils instead of eyeliners

5. Antiperspirant for the face

4. Peanut butter instead of shaving foam

3. Using coffee for artificial tanning

2. Baby cosmetic products instead of regular ones

1. Nail polish as eyeliner

1. Strong black tea for curing sunburn

2. Antistatic cloth for hair
