Strong is the desire of any women to look her absolute best anytime anywhere. Very often we find ourselves being lucky since we live during the age of many possibilities and the miracles of beauty industry keep surprising us with the very new product they make.

Indeed, that would all be so beautiful if only the beauty companies told us the whole truth. The thing is that their main interest is to make the most income out of their developed product that is why there is no use telling you what may be possible wrong with it because you will not buy it and that will influence the income. Convenient, isn’t it? That is why we decided it is only fair to tell you about 15 things that beauty companies would rather keep hidden.

#1 Formaldehyde

It is not a secret that formaldehyde is connected to cancer and is considered to be one of the elements that trigger cancer. What remains hidden is the fact that most beauty companies use it as a regular component of their many products.

#2 Spray toxins

It is true that most of the body and hair sprays are filled with up to 400 toxic components, and we use them daily. What is more, the regular use of such spray indoors may provoke cancer in children and pets as well.

#3 Anti-cellulite products

No matter how well advertised they are – all the anti-cellulite products are ineffective. Stop wasting your money, spend it on the gym for a better result.

#4 Proper tools

There is a lot of various types of foundation out there, and everyone is claimed to be perfect for you. What remains hidden is the fact no matter the quality of the product if you do not invest in properly chosen tools and experiment with the application you won’t get that flawless look shown on the cover.

#5 Marketing

You should not blindly rely on what is said in the advertisement because companies invest money so that you are told what you wish to hear while it does not make that the product advertised is actually corresponding the description.

#6 Scar eliminators

As well as anti-cellulite lotions scar eliminators do not work, deal with it!

#7 DIY products

Very often everything that is sold by beauty companies and filled with toxins and harmful chemicals can be made on your own out of the ingredients that easy to find and afford. But that is another secret since there is no use for you to know how to make your own balm if you can buy it at the store, right?

#8 Nail polish

We all like to add some fresh twist to our nails especially with the list of options available these days. What we leave out is the fact that most polishes are filled with deadly toxins that are easily absorbed by our skin. Watch out!

#9 Lead-containing lipstick

Lead is poisonous to your body and can you imagine that with every swipe of your favorite lipstick you keep poisoning yourself? That is right since beauty industry is the one who hasn’t refused from adding lead to lipstick yet.

#10 Anti-aging creams

Well, there is no magic recipe to save your skin from aging that is why no matter what is written on that cream packaging – it is mostly a lie. Of course, some events in those expensive lotions add up to the softness and freshness of your skin, but they surely do not reverse the aging process.

#11 Mascara

Very often when your fav mascara dries out, you immediately head to the store to buy a new one. But the thing is that you can easily bring your mascara back to life with just a few drops of your eye drops!

#12 Sunscreen

SPF foundations are on the edge of popularity these days because they promise to save your skin from the UV rays as well as make your skin gorgeous-looking anywhere you go. But while you apply foundation to your face and neck only the rest of your body is unprotected, and you should not let it slip your mind. That is why good old sunscreen is still worth investing in.

#13 Broken compacts

Sometimes we drop our compacts, and they shatter. But instead of throwing them out you should better look up the ways of mending them because they are a lot easier to afford than a new compact.

#14 FDA

When it comes to beauty industry – FDA is useless. Sad but true.

#15 Drugstore production

Very often we conclude that drugstore production is worse than the designer one. But the truth is that the designer production differs from the drugstore one in price only, due to the famous name attached but contains the same ingredients.

Keep these few things in mind when you are going to your favorite makeup store!
