According to the survey conducted by the online shop SkinStore, women use around 16 cosmetic products every day on average. And there is nothing surprising about this fact: almost every day there’s a new “necessary” product that usually ends up in our purse sooner or later. But in reality, not all of them deserve a spot in our makeup bags.
We at Bright Side encourage you to check your purse for these cosmetic products that are either useless or could even be harmful. Also, you might want to give up using some cosmetics that don’t match your skin type.
In the past few years, coconut oil has become one of the most popular natural cosmetic products. It’s often used instead of moisturizing creams or as a skin cleanser. However, coconut oil is not a universal product that works for everyone. It can clog up the pores and cause acne in some people. If you have oily skin, you should choose a different product for your face.
Face mists are supposed to moisturize the skin, but it’s not that simple. Dry skin needs not only the moisture, but also the elements that keep the skin moisturized. Without the elements, the moisture just evaporates from the skin’s surface. So, most mists are not only useless, but actually harmful: they don’t contain anything but water, a scent, and coloring (that could cause an allergic reaction in people who have sensitive skin.) If you like mists, choose ones that contain glycerin, propylene glycol, hyaluronic acid, and aloe extract.
When people are trying to save some money, they start doing chemical peels at home. But this is one of the cases where a procedure should only be done by a professional. These products are supposed to remove the upper layer of skin, which is why even the smallest mistake in using a product like this can cause serious damage.
Acne removal tools
This is the same as chemical peeling. You should see a certified cosmetologist for these procedures. These tools can be useless or even really dangerous if you don’t know how to use them correctly.
This mirror can make some procedures a little easier but it also magnifies all the imperfections. This is why it might seem to you that you have far more problems with your skin than you really do. So, we recommend using a regular mirror and a good light source.
No matter what the containers of these products say and no matter how much we want to believe them, anti-cellulite creams just don’t work. Period. More than that, cellulite is just a natural feature of some people’s bodies. The appearance of cellulite doesn’t depend on losing or gaining weight, it is connected with hormones and genes.
Stretch mark creams
Unfortunately, stretch mark creams are also useless. They just moisturize the skin which makes it look a little bit better. And some people may even notice that their stretch marks are not visible any more. But in order to moisturize the skin, you don’t need to buy a special product: a regular moisturizing cream or oil will have exactly the same effect.
More often than not, cuticle creams contain exactly the same ingredients as regular hand creams. It is just another way to make people buy more products. In order not to pay more for a “brand new” product, you can just use oils and regular hand creams on your cuticles.
Lip scrubs are usually just lip balms with abrasive particles and a very high price. Besides, the lip skin is very tender, and scrubs can peel off both dead and living skin. This product can make the lips even drier which means that they might crack even more. So, it’s best if you use moisturizing balms to take care of your lips instead.
Products for split ends
Here is another product that is a complete waste of money. Most of these products just temporarily straighten the ends and create the illusion of healthy hair. But there is no way to make your hair healthy without having it cut. So, get a haircut and try to take better care of your hair in the future.

16 Striking Photos That Can Touch Your Heart
Photos keep our memories safe and every time we look at them we can immerse ourselves in the moments that have been captured in them. They can also help us to understand what’s really important in this world. And it doesn’t matter whether these photos are from your personal album or belong to somebody else. Their messages, feelings, and emotions can be perceived in one glance.
Here at Bright Side, we believe that the following photos will really touch your heart.
This couple has battled leukemia for 15 years since they were children. Now they’re husband and wife.
This fireman gave a cat that got hurt in a fire mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and saved it.
“My dad, who has dementia, trying to remember my name”
His owner passed away but the dog continues to sit near his bed and wait.
This is what depression looks like over 24 hours.
Have you ever seen a blind dog enjoying the sounds of a lake?
An Iranian girl cheers for her favorite football team from behind the fence since Iranian women aren’t allowed into stadiums.
“My mom painted dementia.”
When all you have is memories:

“My buddy, a glass blowing artist, used my dad’s ashes to make a keepsake marble I can take with me anywhere.”
“She gave me the best 11 years of her life and I can only hope that I was able to do the same thing for her.”
“A year ago, my little sister left this world. This weekend her heart recipient met my mom and shared her heart beat.”
“The moment your dog comes out of the fire you thought he died in”
“3 months ago we were told our newborn was blind. 2 weeks ago we found out the doctors were wrong. Today, she got her glasses.”
“I’m just so proud of you!”
Today my daughter graduated from pre-K. After the ceremony, my son walked up to her and gave her a hug. “I’m just so proud of you,” he said. Then, of course, my daughter started crying. As we wiped away our tears, my husband asked her, “Pumpkin, why are you crying?” She responded, “I’m just so happy.”
Each photo has its own story. Which of them touched you the most?
