On this episode of the Beauty Brains we cover a variety of topics for both hair and skin. On this show…
- How does Hard water affect hair?
- Should you be Patting or smearing on skincare products?
- What natural ingredients that are good for hair?
Crappy claims – (Maybe need a title for this segment but the idea is to call out bad and misleading marketing claims) Dove launches a 0% aluminum deodorant. Deodorants have never contained aluminum!
Will lemon juice lighten up darkened armpits?
No, but I can see how this lemon juice myth got started. There is a small amount of Vitamin C in lemon juice which some people believe will lighten skin. And there is citric acid in it which some people think might help exfoliate. But it’s unlikely to be of much help and it can also cause problems. Lemon juice can react with the sun to cause a rash. Having a rash under your armpits is no fun.
Question 1 – Water Hardness
Question 2 – What natural hair ingredients are effective?
Question 3 – Should you pat or smear your skin care products?
There isn’t a lot of evidence that patting is better for application than smearing. The most important thing is that you apply sunscreen at all.
