Useless Cosmetic Products You Waste Your Money On

When it comes to cosmetics of all kinds, from creams, lotions, serums, shampoos and conditioners, women have that annoying habit to have many many products. It is interesting that women are attached and dependent to this kind of products, and do not realise that some of them are simply useless. Let’s find out some examples! In this way, maybe you will save some money in the future!

Serum for slip ends – I’m sure you are familiar with the slogan “fix the split ends in one movement”. In fact, this is simply impossible. Split ends are the result of damage of cuticle that protects the hair as a result of the long-term use of the hair dryer, hair straightener, frequent washing, or frequent use of the fixative.

In other words, split ends can not be healed by applying a miracle solution, which contains nothing but flexible polymer molecules that give the impression (for a short period of time until to the next shower) that the ends are healthy. The only way you can get rid of damaged hair is … scissors.

Instead of giving a lot of money to an unnecessary serum, better make an appointment to hairstylist cut your split ends.

Anti – cellulite cream – This kind of creams have always been promoted in the idea that cellulite is mainly caused by poor circulation, fat distribution and accumulation of toxins in the body, and they can make it the impossible, or increase circulation, destroy up fat deposits and lead to elimination of toxins.

In fact, they do not treat the cause, because the real reason for the appearance of cellulite is quite different. We could even say that there are a number of factors that lead to the appearance of orange peel. Among them we mention: hormonal disturbances, unbalanced diet, sedentary lifestyle and lack of hydration.

Lip balm –  Although it is said that lip balm deeply hydrate the sensitive skin of the lips, such balms do the opposite. The lip balm actually seals the surface of the lips with a film that interrupts the natural exchange of water and oils without any help.
Especially in winter, the dry and cracked lips are because they quickly lose water and do not produce natural oils, and the application of the conditioner only aggravates the symptoms.

A truly effective solution is to daily exfoliate your lips and then applying a moisturizing oil (such as olive oil) to prevent irritation. In this way, the skin of the lips will breathe and the natural hydration process will be stimulated.
