Are those do-it-yourself beauty trends you see online good alternatives for more expensive products? The Doctors investigate to find out if should or should not try these treatments at home.
Castor oil for thicker eyebrows?
Some believe the natural product – which was used as a punishment decades ago for unruly children who were made to drink it – can give your thicker and more pronounced eyebrows. But, it can also lead to skin irritations and a rash. One woman reportedly lost most of her eyebrows from applying oil. The American Cancer Society studied castor oil to find out if any of the beauty claims were valid, and they determined it did nothing to improve hair growth or fullness. It can also be used as a laxative, which might be reason enough not to put on your skin!
The Doctors’ verdict: Shouldn’t
Activated charcoal & glue for oily skin?
A video on YouTube, viewed over 17 million times, has a user mixing non-toxic glue and activated charcoal to form a mask, which is then applied to the face, allowed to dry and then peeled off to removed dirt and oil. The Doctors say activated charcoal is good for absorbing the skin’s excess oils, but they warn against the glue. They suggest leaving glue for the craft products, as many people are using glues not intended for your skin and there is the possibility that it could rip off the top layer of your epidermis
The Doctors’ verdict: Activated charcoal – Should, Glue – Shouldn’t
