Dr. Brueck Busts Some Beauty Myths

#1 Shampoo hair daily for healthy hair.

Shampooing hair daily can open up the hair follicles and cause the loss of essential oils. The oil needs to go from cuticle/follicle to the end of the hair. If you want to “wash” your hair daily, consider a simple warm water rinse. Look for a shampoo that contains essential ingredients for healthy hair follicles, such as lemongrass oils, ginkgo biloba, soy protein and Vitamin A, E and B. Good Choice: Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo (

#2 Pop a pimple to get it to go away.

NO! Popping a pimple can lead to greater inflammation and actually enlarge the pore. Oh, those ugly large pores! Minimize touching your face – this can spread bacteria. Environmental pollutants such as cigarette smoke are a no-no! Get a skincare system that is for example salicyclic acid; the ingredients should be noncomedogenic.

#3 Concealer is the best solution for dark under the eye circles.

The skin under the eyes is very thin and the protruding fat can lead to “bags”. Good sleep, nutrition and hydration go a long way to minimize circles. Choose a concealer close to your normal skin tone. Use a soft hand when you apply it. Mineral based makeup is the best. The newest ingredients include Vitamins K and A. Pick: Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Concealer
