We bust some beauty myths to ensure you're no fool

It may be April Fools’ Day but we don’t want to be a fool in the beauty department so we’ve busted some beauty myths to ensure your routine is promoting healthy, radiant skin.

April Fool: A toner is too harsh on the skin

Busted: Toners used to be quite strong and quite harmful to the skin, but new formulations are much more gentle and don’t sting. Toner helps to bring the pH balance of your skin to the optimum level so your serum and moisturiser can work effectively.

Try: UrbanVeda Soothing Hydrating Toner £9.49

April Fool: Colouring your hair at home will end in disaster

Busted: If you follow the instructions and complete a strand and skin test beforehand, you will end up with a gorgeous colour at a fraction of the salon cost. If you try to chemically lighter your hair dyr, your hair will also not be exposed and stripped by ammonia etc.

Try: Naturtint’s range of home hair dyes £9.99

April Fool: Serums are unnecessary

Busted: Most people assume that serums are just another moisturising product, with no specific purpose. But they have a high concentration of active ingredients which really make a difference to your skin. They also penetrate all three layers of your skin as they are made of really small molecules.

Try: Janjira Pomegranate & Acai Facial Concentrate Serum £50
