Your skin has multiple layers and the superior one has a lot of dead cells that communicate with the others to produce more active cells for a proper hydration. It’s the same thing with your lips. Because you apply a lot of lipgloss on the upper layer, the next layer of your lips doesn’t get the proper message to produce more cells. That’s why, when you forget to apply lip balm, your lips get dry and that’s because the circuit isn’t quite done. It’s a vicious cercle, if you think about it.
#2. The Nail Polish
According to some studies, the dark shades of nail polish get into contact with the inferior layer of your nails. The reaction is hard to predict because it’s not in everyone’s case. Although, you should know that it’s a bad thing to keep your dark shade longer than a week. The nail polish has formaldehyde that helps your nail polish to dry faster. This ingredient is against the keratin protein from your natural nails and that’s why, in time, they become yellow.
