Hellooo everyone! Hug

I'm here with this weeks Discussion! Now.. we thought we would have a slightly different discussion this week... on...

FASHION and BEAUTY MYTHS!

'Myths' are improvable, popular beliefs that often distort the truth.

Let me give you some examples of some...

1 - Baggy clothes make you look slimmer

2 - Designer clothes are better quality and value

3 - Eating chocolates and fried foods causes breakouts

4 - Shaving hair causes it to grow back thicker

5 - Acne is caused by dirt

Did those ring a bell?  Ermm

Please share your thoughts on these and any others you can think of! Big smile

Any other comments? Embarrassed

Love

I agree with you Kansha. We believe in so many myths that arent even true.

I think that when we think of this, our body reacts to it and when someone shaves they do get thicker hair. If we didnt think that way, hair would stay the same.

I like the example Girps gave. Tongue

But most of the time, they're just our "thoughts" like pink makes me look fat or blue makes me look thin. etc.

Great discussion. Smile

Great topic Kansha... I have something to say (as usual)WinkThe one that always drives me crazy that chocolate gives you acne... I love chocolate and live on coca cola, but my skin is clear. I only have issues when I stress...

There are way too many myths floating around that lead yoyung girls, and sometimes older ones as well astray. What makes me even crazier is when companies tout their products as ones that will solve all beauty issues when all u need to do is pay attention to hygiene and take care of yourself in a decent manner.

A few articles I sourced that deals with Beauty myths...
