Beauty Truths

The Body Shop unearthed them one by one


Truth: pores don’t open and close

Truth: facial oils won’t clog oily skin

Truth: your skin adapts to what you’re using and eventually stops working

Have you noticed a twitter trend for #BeautyTruth’s? You can thank The Body Shop for that.

For the past month, The Body Shop has been debunking beauty myths with the help of you, sharing everything from the beauty tips passed down from your Gran, to the advice you’ve taken from friends.


We even got in on the act last week The Body Shop’s hosted events, including the ELLE Summer Beauty Trends Talk and Ultimate Beauty Truths Guest Panel. 

Guests sipped on bubbles and enjoyed complimentary massages before joining us and a slew of beauty experts to talk all things skincare, makeup and wellbeing.  Were beauty myths demystified? Yes. We even learnt a thing or two ourselves.

Oh and did we mention all readers took away a goody bag worth £40! Enough products to debunk their own beauty myths, we’d say.
