Beauty (full) things you need to know

You tend to take everything you hear for granted? Here are some myths you should know about.

Toothpaste is good against pimples

If you have darker skin you don’t need sunscreen

False. UV rays penetrate the skin and make it age faster, no matter what ‘s her natural color. Indeed, melanin, the substance that gives the skin color, acts as a protective factor, but it’s not enough so you don’t need to use protective creams.

 

Cold cucumber slices will de-puff your eyes
