Let us preface this conversation by stating that we are big fans of an effective DIY beauty treatment or hack. We’re the first ones to whip out the scotch tape and create the perfect cat eye or slather on an avocado face mask (mmm, guac.) That being said, we do not jump into these home remedies blindly. We do our research and consult with the pros prior to trying them ourselves—and then, of course, sharing them with you!
However, some beauty fanatics are not as cautious, and jump onto “fad” at-home beauty hacks without doing their due diligence. In addition to wasting their time on fruitless treatments, they may actually be doing more damage to their skin than good. To save you from this catastrophic fate, we’re listing six beauty hacks you should NEVER try at home. We mean it!
