1 Soap is Bad for Your Skin. 香皂对皮肤有害。
Traditionally, soap was a mix of animal fats and fruit or vegetable oils. This combination has a higb PH and is drying to skin, particularly to aging skin. These days, however, soaps are formulated with synthetic elements that are milder than traditional soap, and therefore suitable to cleanse skin. Most soaps have emollients(moisturisers) added, so they are beneficial for the skin. If you prefer the feeling cleansing with soap provides, don't let those purveyors of fine skincare bully you--there's nothing wrong with using soap.
2 Dry Skin Causes Wrinkles. 干燥皮肤造成皱纹。
Around eighty percent of lines and wrinkles are caused by the sun. The other twenty percent are the result of facial expressions such as smiling and frowning. If you smoke, the appearance of these wrinkles is accelerated. Also, as one ages the skin makes less natural oil and this makes the wrinkling more apparent. A moisturiser will help temporarily smooth away some early fine lines. Protect yourself from the sun, and you impede the development of fine lines. Remember, a tan is your skin's reaction to an injury.
3 It Can Be Too Late to Start Wearing Sunscreen. 想要开始涂防晒霜时可能为时已晚。
If you can see shadows, you need to protect your skin. 如果你可以看到影子，你就需要保护你的皮肤。
4 Everyone needs Moisturiser. 人人都需要润肤霜。
According to dermatologists, you only need a moisturiser if your skin experiences the following: redness, scaliness or itchiness. These symptoms are more frequently seen during the colder seasons. That everyone needs a moisturiser is a multimillion dollar myth the cosmetic companies propagate in order to make you hand over your hard-earned cash.
5 For Best Results You Should Stick to One Product Line. 为了达到最佳效果，你应坚持使用同一系列的产品。
Another fallacy promoted by sales reps. Certainly, you may love how all the products work together but using products from different lines won't kill you. Every cosmetics line has products you should avoid because they contain irritating ingredients, inadequate amounts of sunscreen, or moisturisers that over-saturate the skin. Experiment and find the products that are right for you.
6 Expensive Products are Better Because the Ingredients are Better. 贵的产品更好，因为成分更好。
All cosmetics contain standard cosmetic ingredients. They can't contain anything else, as drugs do, or they would be regulated differently. The quality levels of cosmetic ingredients don't vary that much, and every company that buys cosmetic-grade ingredients all buy the same quality. Expensive cosmetics are predominantly all hype.
7 Eating Chocolate and Fried Foods Causes Bad Skin. 吃巧克力和油炸食品造成皮肤不健康。
No, it's not because I'm a chocoholic! Studies have shown that pimples are caused from factors such as extreme stress or dead skin cells blocking pores. However, eating fresh fruits and raw vegetables does promote a healthier complexion due to their vitamins and minerals.
8 Frequent Trimmings Can Make Hair Grow Faster. 经常修发会使其长得更快。
Hair, whether it is cut or not, grows about half an inch per month. Hair does grow slightly faster in the summer, but that is due to hormones rather than the stylist's scissors. A worrying trend among young Chinese girls is to rub a paste made of crushed contraceptive pill into their scalp and hair. This does not lead to stronger, glossier, faster growing hair. In fact, the hormones, while initially improving the condition of the hair, quichly lead to hair loss.
P.S. You can't repair split ends. The only way to rid of split ends is to cut them off and prevent them in the future with good hair care. A good trim will eliminate split ends, making hair look healthier and livelier.
9 Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back Darker and Coarser. 刮除毛发会令其长得更黑更粗糙。
Cutting or shaving any hair on your body does not affect it growth. Repeat ad nauseam.
10 You Can Get Rid Of Cellulite. 你可以摆脱脂肪团。
The truth is, nothing can be done to permanently eliminate cellulite--not even liposuction.
