Bizarre Beauty Beliefs

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/27/2012 - 8:59 PM

So I was recently reading a blog post on about a beauty study done in France, talking about how drinking alcohol or thinking you have had a drink or two can make you 'more beautiful'. While I personally think the total opposite about this study, considering alcoholic drinks just dehydrate you, how can it possibly make one more beautiful? They bring up the whole confidence thing, which I get…but see for yourself in the article here.

So this article got me thinking about some other bizarre beauty beliefs I’m sure you’ve heard over and over again.  Some of the most ridiculous things, like crossing your legs will give you varicose veins, applying Vaseline on your face nightly will prevent wrinkles, rubbing your eyes will create wrinkles, applying cocoa butter or olive oil stops stretch marks, and the list can go on and on for a long while. While sadly, none of the above are true, I don’t think this France beauty study is true one bit either. What are your thoughts on this? What are some funky beauty beliefs you think are actually true?
